    Well I suppose I will introduce myself before I start posting. I will give a bullet point breakdown of who I am:

    -My name is Scott

    - I teach university level classes in business, political science, and history.

    - I own an independent business focusing on culinary arts.

    - I consider myself a Republican although I don't always agree with their position. Regarding economics, business, foreign policy, etc I am solidly conservative. Regarding issues that tend to have nothing to do with economics (i.e. gay marriage) I tend to be more liberal.

    - I am a self-professed war hawk.

    - I love respectful debate.

    - I love disrespectful debate and I adore bad taste.

    Just some background credentials so you will know why I hold the opinions I do:

    - I have 27 years experience as a business manager and/or owner specific to the food service industry. I am also a professional chef and Certified Executive Pastry Chef focusing on fine dining. My resume includes extensive time with the Ritz-Carlton and Mastro's Inc just to name a couple. I also have multiple gold and silver medals in national culinary competition.

    - I have 10 years experience teaching at the university level.

    - My educational credentials include bachelors degrees in business management, history, and an associates degree in culinary arts.

    - I spent the last 15 years in Phoenix, Arizona working like a slave. Last year I relocated to Oregon with three goals: a) build a wonderful life with my fiance, b) start a successful business, c) turn Oregon red. The first two are proceeding well.

    I hope to have some good conversation with all of you.

    -Scott

    *Snickers*

    (Puts on whiny voice to mimic the OP) "I love respectful debate".

    What a fucking idiot.


    :lol:

    Welcome Scott. I apologize for the sarcasm. I am CG, I mock 'respectful debaters'... but only if their 'debate' is gibberish bullshit.

    Sorry, we're not hiring right now, no ready jobs just yet. We'll keep your resume on file.
    By the way, how good are you with a shovel?

    Welcome to USMB, BluePhantom. Hope you love the Beaver State as much as I did the 5 years I lived there and attended OSU in Corvallis. Didn't graduate, though. My talented husband kept getting promoted and transferred every 2 years, so our stay now seems ever so short.
