Hello

Hello all,

I'm a regular on AK and thought I would check in here to see what is going on. Romney's pick of a running mate got my political curiosity going again.

For the record I used to vote Republican until I figured out their agenda. I still hold some conservative views but since the Bush era I consider myself independent. Overall I'm just disgusted with almost everything happening at the federal level regardless of party. Their brains have gone to mush and seem to believe any BS that comes from K Street.

Welcome aboard, sounds like someone who defines "conservative" the same way I do.

Welcome. Your views of government and the GOP pretty much reflect mine.

Thanks for joining us E. Hope you enjoy it here. You'll see that there is a bit of an AK influence.

Regards,

Thanks guys.

I see the AK influence with the what music are you listening to thread. Hopefully that takes the edge off politics if people can at least agree to some tunes.

Hey! Where's the air guitar smiley?!

We' uns cuss and spit with a little badgering thrown in for good measure but the mantra here is that the arena of ideas is paramount and the first amendment is pretty much holy. Namecalling is somewhat frowned upon but tolerated as you'll see perusing the threads. Watch out for our esteemed member from AZ, he's got some strange ways of showing affection towards new members.
He'll be the one shouting noob.....
Hey DJ come on back you old tarantula herder!
