    Hi, everybody!

    I'm looking around at different political discussion boards trying to find one that fits.

    I quit a rather Libertarian/Conservative board because it got too loony! I am a dyed-in-the-wool Liberal of the FDR/Humphrey school. I am a strong advocate for workplace safety issues, free speech issues and civil liberties. I believe in dissent. Inclusive, respectful dissent.

    I am a denizen of the Rust Belt. I am by training an Environmental Engineer. I am currently the head of the Building Code enforcement bureau at my home county in Ohio.

    On the weekends, I sky dive and play with my dog. I am a middle aged man who is not angry! I voted for Obama. I am a football fan (Go Buckeyes! Go Steelers!) and I enjoy hockey as well (Go Penguins!) I fancy myself a classic film buff and have amassed a considerable collection of DVDs. I grew up in the north where boys toys are largely indoor toys. I lived in Sarasota where boys toys are largely outdoor toys (boats, guns etc.)

    I shot a gun once at Boy Scout camp. I am a divorcee.

    I don't know about that...

    In Ohio, boys would get toys that suit the weather. Massive stereo systems and televisions. Remember records? Vinyl? Well, as an Ohio boy, I managed to collect 1,000 of them!

    In Florida, the boys would get toys that suit the weather. Bass boats, fan boats (remember "Flipper"?), guns, guns and guns.

    I was a fish out of water in south Florida!

    Not only were my toys wrong, but the folks I met in Florida were utterly convinced that the United Steel Workers of America were single handedly responsible for the demise of the American steel industry. Good Lord how they hated unionized labor! I suppose they felt they were getting a better break bargaining on their own for salary, benefits and safety procedures.

    You say that like you're bragging. I think I can see through to part where you're on your knees being apologetic.

    Humphrey was a pussy. Next ...
