Hi from a mew member.

Hello friends.
I have been wanting to join some kind of forum for discussing political topics but as most of you know it is frowned upon in many forums , But this being tied to Audio Karma I felt comfortable joining.
I had an Uncle that once said. "never discount the opinions of a crazy person...Even they have something to say"... He was a great man who lived through some very tough times and was very successful in business so I took everything he said to heart and listened to everything he had to say, He helped societies strays and contributed to many causes but never said much about politics.
I since then started educating myself in politics and the reason why and how decisions are reached in local ,state and US government levels , only to be more confused it took quit some time to get a handle on it but I think I`m there, or at least knocking on the door.
I just wanted to say Hi...And look forward to contributing (hopefully) something of value.
Thanks.

Welcome Zman. Jump on in, the water's hot.

It looks like you're a cat lover too.

Regards,

I like the thermonuclear cloud in your avatar. Ever watched "Trinity and Beyond"?

Welcome Zman.

Thanks for the welcome.
d-ray657......Yes I love the kitties, How did you know.

BlueStreak...Yes..I have the DVD and watch it from time to time. I am still in amazement of the power we were able to harness yet in contrast to our growth it seems even more incredible.
Looking forward to something.

I used that same pic years ago for a cover on a misc tunes tape, back when the 'net was a gleam in some computer geeks' eye

It was a bad pun on the title of the thread: "Hi from a mew member." I hope you enjoy it here, bad puns and all.

Looking forward to seeing your first blast in person? 'Cuz that cat isn't far from breaching the bag, my friend.
