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.
Cinnamon Stillwell article "The End Is Near" is funny. Reminded me, about 20 years ago, before climate hysteria was so common, a guy used to hang around where I was working and he'd rant and rave that the Russians were changing the weather. He would not stop until told to leave.
