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.
We've been looking for interesting Vermont blogs - and found one - Alphecca. He labels himself as a gay Libertarian gun nut in Vermont. Unique? A sample piece of his on the rise in gun crimes in the UK.
If anyone knows of a blog that addresses specifically or mainly Vermont politics and issues from a rational standpoint, please let us know. Same goes for Maine - we can't find a single one.
Hey, Middletown, NY
You folks ought to be all over your local newspaper - read about the Big Lie in Confed. Yankee's handsome new website.
Derbyshire imagines the International Freedom Center
Funny, but what he imagines is pretty close to what I imagined - lefty, America-hating cliches, I guess. In NRO.
