    If you had to choose one thing or one victory in your life, what would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? You can name more than one if it's hard to choose.

    Owning my own business for nearly two decades, starting from scratch with practically nothing and doing exactly what I love, with passion and zest.
    No boss, and the freedom to do whatever I want, whenever I want, wherever I want.

    Life is good.

    In my very short life so far compared to others, I would have to say it's my chil- KIDDING! :lol:

    Seriously though, I suppose it's graduating High School with Honors/Getting into a good College.

    Thank you for asking by the way.

    You're welcome.

    That's a great accomplishment. That will set you up well on your way to many more great accomplishments.

    My greatest "non family" personal accomplishments.

    It's a tie.

    I was the Honor Graduate from 82 Charlie from Fort Sill and received an automatic promotion over two grades.

    I received the "Army Commendation Medal" when I served in Headquarters Battery, in the 3rd Battalion, 16th Field Artillery, 8th Infantry Division.

    And I was selected with two other GIs to have Breakfast with the Secretary of the Army, the Honorable Mr. Hoffmann in 1976 in Baum-holder, Germany.

    Those are the greatest because they were things I did when I was in the Military. To me Military service is the greatest achievement you can do as an American.

    I know conservatives who read this are gonna howl. They are under this delusion that no liberal can ever serve the United States military honorably. That if you are a liberal, you must be a "Marxist, Fascist, Socialist, Communist because all three of those are the same.

    Conservatives can't see that it's "conservatism" that is the danger to his country because they are delusional. They can't look back at what they have done to this country in the last decade with any type of rational self examination. Like Bush, they can never look at their mistakes and say three simple words, "I was wrong". They are not capable.
