    I'm brand new here. I'm a liberal but not one of those limp-wristed, hair-brained, obnoxious green ones. In just reading through many of your threads I think I've found a place where I can communicate. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the board psycho! Just keep on topic - and try not to do too much name calling - we all have differing opinions on all these topics - but try not to resort to that kind of stuff.

    Joan,

    I call a spade a spade. My perception is what it is. I can go to great lengths to explain my perception but I can detect fairly quickly whether the description might mean anything to the argument or whether it is best to just truck on. But sometimes I get ahead of myself. Can you dig it?

    USMB certainly has the option, as you have so subtly indicated, to throw me out. I certainly hope that will not happen. After all, USMB has been selected as No. 1 in the Free Speech thing. Surely my liberal screeds would be welcome in such an environment, or would they? Really, I want to know.

    Wait a minute, I gotts to look up "screeds"...
    "Screed, A long monotonous speech or piece of writing."
    Oh, sure, we get that all the time. ;)
    Avoid name calling and be prepared to back up any claims you make with a source, be friendly, argue the issues and not the personalities and I'm sure you'll be welcomed.

    I gotcha, dijetlo. Perhaps my choice of wording is faulty. I will assure you that my "screeds" are not insincere but monotonous they may be. Time will tell whether or not my views might be welcome here. I only do the name calling thing when I feel I'm being catalogued. I am a Bluesman. Everything else, well it's open to interpretation.
