my thoughts and opinions

" By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, journalism keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community" ~ Oscar Wilde

I have things to say.  For years, I have been unable to express my opinions on many subjects, because of military law or for political job-saving reasons.   No longer.

I have lived a life of dogma in the past, so, any opinion here, I hope, will always be well thought out, well researched, and tempered with some common sense and understanding.

I think I'm a pretty intelligent guy, but realize there are smarter folks.  Therefore, I will always listen and will always be willing to change my point of view when faced with compelling evidence to the contrary.

If you decide to engage with me on a subject, be able to support your arguments, listen as much as you talk, and be polite.  Please remember, I'm a Scout, highly trained in finding people and ...well...just be nice.
