John Galt update

Hello my good friends and legions of fans. The reports of my demise were
off the mark, although my old computer did finally die.
Also, I have been quite busy.
However, be of good cheer as I just invested in a new laptop and will
shortly begin working on my next 8,000 posts.

I am leaving for Texas soon but will be checking in more often
in the near future. Thus, you can expect more liberal bashing,
politically incorrect pontification, and general far right wing
rants. Maybe even some stuff about retirement issues

Missed you guys.

JG

Well, I don't see it that way. JG reminds me of my Posse Comitatus uncle (who lost his house to the IRS on principle) and lives very simply, yet as his liberal nephew we have some interesting political discussions.

Now Hosxx, that to me is more like a passive aggressive Hannibal Lectur with a computer.

Re: John Galt update

I saw a little note on the forum from your X wife the other day and then it was gone.

Seems she's a new member, this should be interesting

Hey [moderator edit]!

You have to hold it over your head and shake it between posts?
