Something Interesting I found

I think it goes for many situations. I posted it mostly to provide a little light humor considering how much poop I've stirred so far. :)

Good saying Roy, been around a long time, problem is those in DC quit digging the hole, they been digging a mine shaft and its going to cave in.

The first lesson of economics is scarcity: There is never enough of anything to satisfy all who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics. -- Thomas Sowell

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
