The Wit and Wisdom of JG

Posts at 7:15, 7:36, 7:42, 7:52 & 7:54 - on five separate subjects. JG, you remind me of my ex mother-in-law, who dominated every conversation regardless of the subject and without regard to her knowledge of the point being discussed. But unlike her, you at least have a sense of humor.

Thanks REWanabe (I guess)

I have opinions on everything and no shyness whatsoever about sharing them.

Re: The Wit and Wisdom of JG

I do have to wonder, if JG is retired and has such a great life, why does he seem to spend so much time/energy posting here?

If sitting around and posting on internet message boards is all I have to look forward to in ER, I might as well not bother.

I enjoy reading John Galt's postings and find some of his "on the edge" anecdotes thought provoking.

soupcxan, you wrote in November that you were only 6 months out of school. You can learn from those who retired early if you keep an open mind and read between the lines.

Re: The Wit and Wisdom of JG

You are the only person I've heard describe themselves as 'pro-life' who considers abortion murder, but is against any government intervention.

Are there other acts of murder that should be legal? Murdering liberals, gun control advocates for example?
