We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Statistics of global warming: Why Global Warming is a crock. Am Thinker.
I find, as a rule, that whenever one is feeling a bit too good and feels the need for a migraine, or a case of Acute Exasperated Flummoxification, try discussing climate with someone who knows no math or science.

To multiply by 9,try this:
(1) Spread your two hands out and place them on a desk or table in front of you.
(2) To multiply by 3, fold down the 3rd finger from the left. To multiply by 4, it would be the 4th finger and so on.
(3) the answer is 27 ... READ it from the two fingers on the left of the folded down finger and the 7 fingers on the right of it.
global warming? what do you mean? Damn but the Barrister is funny, I will make sure to discuss Global Warming at Sundance as I know there will be a lot of real smart folks from Hollywood there and I am sure the politics will be just as entertaining!
