    I have been floating around the place and now wish to commit; I like it here. As a newbie, I will be suitably respectful of all members unless they prove undeserving. I call it as I see it and would be best described as a common sense conservative.

    Now the important bit; Obama is obviously in over his pay grade, and there is no way any of the GOP contenders would do a worse job than the current occupant of the White House. It is sad to see what has become the Democrat Party...but that's their problem.

    Oh; and I sign my posts out of respect for the readers...should there be any.

    Thank you, Dave. We have our fair share of nutters and loons, but I think we are a pretty good Ally and Friend to the US. Had your Pres down here recently...not sure an extra 2500 Marines are going to do a lot in securing Asia but it was a good photo op.

    "Let's put some shrimp on the barbie..."

    Crikey...what would the fuzz say??? Oh; you mean "prawns"???

    Oddly enough, I never had heard of such a thing until Hoges did that ad. Have never actually done it, though I have helped light a fire under a half ton sea turtle.... it fed a dozen different mobs over quite a few days. Was even better than mangrove worms.

    I don't think so. A lot of us can make up our own minds.

    Dr Grump.

    I have played all four codes over the years but there IS only one game played in heaven!!! I believe that it is Rugby....though each have their strong points.
