    Hi, I have been using computers for AGES, yet I never really joined a forum ( in my adult life, that is - it has been over 20 years since ). I am trying to have some fun talking politics. I also am searching for some truths and like to hear both sides of arguments. The media seems so biased from Fox News on one side and MSNBC on the other. I see some people want to be conservative, but some people want to be progressive and liberal, but who is right? I wish we could skip sides and come together for a solution that is for the best, instead of what we think is the best.....

    I am 38 years old, a computer tutor and e-commerce merchant. I am single and getting used to it.... I live in New Jersey with a conservative Fox-watching father. so... HELLO!

    The truth is somewhat elusive these days, everything you hear or read seems to be biased one way or another to some extent. You ain't the only one who is searching for the truth. Things get a little heated sometimes around here, so a thick skin helps. Welcome aboard.

    wow! didn't know I would get this many replies so quickly.

    I remember the computers back then, I remember being impressed with 'zork'.
    WOW! you can tell a computer where to go and what to do! It understands my words!
    Or a flight simulator, WOW! I see lines moving and they look real. Or a word processor,
    WOW! we don't need a typewriter anymore! Or a modem, the 1st one I got was 300 baud,
    I could type faster than it could send the letters.

    Anyways, I am trying to learn, because I am having a hard time understanding that it doesn't take much intelligence to understand that we are fighting too much dems vs. republicans when we should be doing something different to solve the situation in an HONEST way instead of complaining how bad the other side is.
