Thank you for accepting me into your forum.
I chose my screen name as I am a firm believer in our Constitution as it was originally written, ratified and amended (up until the 14th anyway, there begins the corruption) and while it has been severly wounded in the past 100 years by both political parties, it is not yet dead and can be revived to its former greatness and respect.

I look forward to expanding on my philosophies as topics arise where I can promote, defend or debate that which I believe in and hold dear.

Since you asked...
I have lived in the Great Lakes State for almost all of my 54 years and have been married to the same wonderful woman for the last 24 of them.

I was more active on some political boards a few years ago, banned from a few of them, but pretty much gave it up as it was becoming increasingly disheartening to tolerate the views of corporatist conservatives defending unconstitutional financial and regulatory policies as long as it was not their ox being gored.

I have been lurking on this site and others for about the last 6 months. I found most of them to be either banal, borderline (if not overtly) racist or profane beyond purpose. I am not a prude, I can F bomb, cuss and swear with anyone, but not just for obligatory shock value or crudeness.
I applied to this board as I see it as one that has members that show that there is still hope for our constitutionally limited representative Republic.
(and yes, I will occasionally correct those that insist this country is a democracy)

We aren't big on pointless profanity, that's true. You may run into opposition on yours views from some but this a debate board so that's part of the fun. ;)

I don't mind opposition views, in fact I tend to encourage them.
I would rather have a spirited debate with someone who's views I diametrically oppose but debates with facts and conviction than have someone agree with me without a coherent basis for that agreement.

Oh, stop it! You always do that. Use that sniffer to find a truffle or something. :D

snort, inhale, olfactory induce

Word association is fun but typically works better when the words are different.:p

You will do, I was really hoping for one of the Fox News girls to join, I guess I just have to keep emailing them.
Welcome!:D

I really hope to pick the right 6 numbers in the next $200 million Powerball.
Guess we are both SOL.

What would you do with all that money, it would just ruin you.
Now a fox news girl, that's different!

I hazard a guess that $100 million (who am I kidding, if I hit for $200 million, the wife would dump me quicker than a dress on prom night) will get me a Fox news girl quicker than your email would.

(Who am I really kidding? Even at $100 mil, O Bummer Nation and the Congress Critters (sounds like a bad garage band from the 70's rather than our political leaders) would not leave me enough for a lap dance after taxes)

Rock is our sniffer piglet. He's quite good at this stuff.

He says he thinks you'll do. He's generally right. Welcome again. :D
