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.

And one may have always assumed that rapists needed to see their victims as objects with less than human characteristics to complete the crime! Rape has been a traditional act of war among sociopaths and psychotic ideologies. Enslavement, terror, summary execution and rape are the historical methods of jihad. It seems that IDF soldiers are politically incorrect. A crime, apparently, more insidious than encouraging rape.
