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.
I've long been a fan of world-map layouts that have the edges near the international date-line rather than the ones that center the USA and split Asia/Russia in half -- but in this case, it is a stupid choice, as emigrants from China and the Phillippines fly off into wherever on the right side of the map only to reappear at the left edge on a ballistic trajectory into the the US.
Also amusing to watch over the decades all of the millions coming out of Carrot Creek, Alberta into the US.
It's interesting to watch the "top three countries" by decade, and ponder how it was that immigrants from Hungary topped nearly all others for a decade.
