This is all very interesting for me I am finally in to the 90's. Not too far behind some in the world and ahead of some. I have just realized my opinions, thoughts and ideas can be posted, saved, and "heard" around the world. This is my first attempt at blogging and posting my thoughts. For those of you who read this I will give you a little background on where I am coming from. This is not a Redblog, a Blue blog, a conservative or liberal blog. It is meant to be a Blog of Common Sense. It will be open to all those who wish to respond with some basic ground rules. No cussing, no swearing, no hate postings and no personal attacks. If you care to respond state you reason for your thoughts and be factual and back them up with facts and stats. This is meant to be a blog of ideas and discussion. No one will be right, and no one will be wrong. An exchange of ideas, period. Try to keep it upbeat and not dwell on the trivial. Good Night for now.
My fellow blogger Infantry Dad has started a petition regarding the military practice of "stop loss". Go to this web site and read the petion and react according to your conscience. I respect and support Infantry Dad and his Constitutional rights to freedom of speech. Here is the petion site: www.gopetition.com/online/25742.html.
I am a widower after 32 years of marriage to the most fantastic woman in the world. A father of 3 and grandfather of 10. I am a Christian Constitutional Conservative and proud of my families military service going back to the Civil War.
