    I'd like to dispense with the obligatory massaging of egos before I begin:

    I've been stealthily trolling this forum for about a week, now, and I am genuinely happy to have finally found a group of mature (mostly), reasonable (to a point), intelligent (as far as that word can go when politics are in play), and agreeable, though not necessarily like-minded people. I'm looking forward to some good, intellectual, and rhetorical sparring, as well as the occasional full-frontal assault of savage wit.

    Now that I have that out of the way:

    I won't sit here and say that I'm all that old or gnarly, because I'm not. Nor am I some fresh-faced net rat with feelings as fragile as bone china. I work in a profession that I'd describe from the inside as completely apolitical, while from the outside being most people's manifestation of political "leverage". I also don't like riddles. Go figure.

    As far as leaning, I'll just say that I am extremely passionate about 2 things: my family and my country, and in that order. I lean towards that which I see to be the best for both. I don't like political parties, and don't register as a blue guy or a red guy. In the interest of honesty, I'll say that I've voted republican since I turned 18, but never for the same reason twice. I have passionate views on right and wrong, with a small but potent margin for error and shades of gray.

    Most importantly, I believe that the only thing that the world can never take from a man is his integrity. That is something only he can give up. That being said, I will never knowingly falsify information and I'll never play dumb when I know better.

    Looking forward to hearing from all of you on the forums.

    PS- I probably sound like a complete stick in the mud, but...oh I guess you'll see for yourself.

    Well. OK. Now that you have that out of the way, tell us about your blood type and how easily a vampire can get to your neck veins. All the rest is just frosting on the cake. BTW, welcome.

    Ego massages are rare delicacies, so enjoy that one. And Ringel...you're a NoVA dweller as well...I can only hope you're the GMU type and not the GWU type :razz:
