    Redwood Burl here!

    Hi everyone. I've been a forum dweller since 2005. I'd been an independent for most of my life, voting person rather than party. In 2004, despite a lot of .... stuff that had gone on since 2002, the GOP re-elected GW Bush. For the life of me, I couldn't understand that, so I began looking around at internet forums to see if I could understand how this could happen.

    The first forum I joined was Ann Coulter's. My, my, what a zoo that was. Anyway, over the years I joined three other Republican/conservative forums, and for a time I thought maybe I'm a libertarian. But I'm not 100 percent libertarian. I'm not 100 percent anything except American.

    I've traveled some in Mexico, Central America, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and Europe. From all my travels, I've concluded one thing without doubt. Despite all of our country's faults, and we have a long list of those, I wouldn't live anywhere else ... well, maybe Australia. It felt like the US 50 years ago. Love Aussies.

    Anyway, a good friend told me about PH, and here I am looking forward to getting the feel of this place

    Oh, and no, I never did figure out why GW was re-elected. lol

    Welcome, Redwood Burl. You have piqued my curiosity already:

    Redwood? Not too many redwoods in Colorado, but I have two of them in my yard.
    If you didn't figure out why GW was reelected, did you figure out why Trump was elected even once?
    Thanks from Friday13

    WAY back in the 70s, I made my living working with redwood burls, and other California woods, walnut, manzanita, madrone, laurel.

    It was a great gig for a young man. I could make a $800 table in about 8 hours. Lots of art festivals. Lots of pretty women!!!

    edit: I'm just learning the system here. This was a reply to Kallie Knoetze.
