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 married my bride because she was not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well. It's been more than 25 years and I made the right decision. One thing I didn't count on was how good she'd be as a mom. BIG bonus.
Which side is more selfish? Pretty easy to see and most of those that have chosen not to marry fit those selfish statements. Some have no choice in marriage as the they haven't found someone with whom they may be compatible.Unfortunately some choose to procreate and still follow the rules on the right hand side of the pages.
