    Name: Richard (Adam’s Apple)

    Politics: Conservative philosophy of government

    Occupation: Early retirement. Don’t believe the crap you read and hear about retirement. It’s one of the best times in your life if you’re not riddled with health problems and have provided a financial means to cover perhaps 25-30 years of non-employment.

    Family: Married; 2 adult daughters, both professionals; 4 grandchildren

    Board interests: WOT, Politics, Religion, Health, Global Topics, sometimes Science, Sports, Animals articles, and the humor contributions, many of which I’ve passed on to my e-mail group.

    Located: Lib college town in Indiana (Indiana has three Democrat strongholds, and I happened to land in one of them. Unfortunately, where I was borned and raised was also in one of those three Democrat strongholds.)

    Why I Participate on USMB: Mostly for informational purposes. I find the board a good place to come into contact with articles on important issues that I may not have had access to.

    In Canada.
    Political junkie and ultimate fighting enthusiast.

    Generally interested in lively debate, and the occassional heated argument.
    Love the conflicting views here, nothing worse than room of people patting each other on the back.

    My name is Gabriella. Holdovers from the previous regime may remember me as the beloved Blonde By The Bay. I am that most bizarre of personalities, the liberal moobat who is married to a conservative Republican. It works out.
    I am a couple of weeks short of being 23. I am a graduate student at the University of California at Berkeley. Yes, that bastion of conservatism in the midst of the liberal Bay Area. In a year or so, I will be a fully certified counselor for at risk kids in the Anaheim School System. My husband advises rich Republicans about how to spend their money.
    My parents were 60s hippies. They met when both were arrested at the same Viet Nam protest rally in Dallas. The best man at their wedding was a high school friend of my dad who served two tours of duty in Viet Nam. Figure that one out.
    My aunt is a Mexican immigrant. My brother in law is a Mexican immigrant. All of my mother's side of the family still live in Germany. My grandfather and one of my uncles fought in World War II. I got to see pictures of them when I visited Munich last summer.
    I still admire Dilloduck. :clap2:
