    After being greeted by the cast of the muppet show and after a few friendly suggestions, I'm introducing myself on the intro-page.

    I'm conservative when it's necessary & liberal when necessary. I'm not hot or cold, black nor white. Yes I have opinions, but what I mean is I'm not an absolutist.

    I'm for strong but small gov't, strong military, 2nd amendment, gay rights, environment.

    My brother is gay. I'm a war vet. I'm pursuing a degree to one day use in the alternative industry. That's where I sit in a nutshell.

    Was suspended from a tea party forum today for basically not blindly backing Romney like they asked everyone to do & for essentially having an independent thought process. I like to think I've been accused of having a brain. I think it's funny and showed my fiancee what it was that got me suspended & she said, well, what makes you think any other political forum will let you think for yourself. I told her, well, I'm more hopeful than I should be.

    This particular fish pool likes brevity, so I kept it to pop-up book format rather than a novel, LOL! See ya out there!

    Welcome.

    Why not get a real job and go bust your ass on a drilling rig?

    Because I have a pair of testicles and got a man's job serving the nation for 12 years and going to war 3 times busting my ass for Uncle Sam. Next time I'm up for vacation, I'll consider staying at a rig for some R&R. Do they have swimming pools at these drill sites?

    LOL, it was fun. Good outlet for an adrenyline junkie like me. After a while, hit my early 30's & wanted to finish my degree. Interested in bio fuels, engineering easily affordable solar cars, etc. Was on Subs for 5 years & a naval Expeditionary Warfare Specialist for 7 & counting. Have a 12 year technical background altogether. Picking alternative energy because it's more sustainable than oil. Oil's gonna run out sooner or later & MAY run out just before I kick off. If it doesn't, it's a hell of a lot cheaper to drive a hybrid or electric car than a gas combustion engine motorized car. If it doesn't make dollars, it doesn't make cents (sense).

    When the older crowd that's anti-sustainable energy is gone & senile, & the generation X people are in charge, we can get the ball rolling for cleaner cheaper energy. Hopefully, our kids won't be so retarded they won't know what to do with the ball once they get it, LOL!
