    Default Hello (again)

    Hello everyone. I feel I must reintroduce myself.

    I used to be GR82BPREPD and every once in a while I would rant about what ever news item that set me off that week. I will still be doing that, because... well... it takes a special kind of idiot to do some of the things I read about in the news and I just can't help myself. I have to say something.

    Why the change?
    I am mostly retired. I went into work one day and said two of the most liberating words ever uttered in the history of mankind: "I Quit". I turned in my two week notice, watched them flounder, trying to find a replacement, and chuckled the whole time. During that two weeks, I told people about my prepping, my financial planning network, and most importantly how ridiculous I thought the direction of the US and the world was going, was. I ignored the strange looks.

    At home, I have been unapologetically critical about government and the things they have been doing. I have been pro 2A the whole nine yards. It has earned me the "Crazy Uncle" status in the family. I can tell by the eye rolls and what not. Until I started to be proven right. Now I am not so crazy, but I like the moniker.

    Hello all! (again)

    Sounds similar to my life!! We have a nephew of my wife’s staying with us now for a couple of weeks. He too thought I was a “crazy uncle”, but not anymore. So welcome, again. Hahaha!!

    I did that back in 98' but not before I left a nasty stink that eventually shut the hospital down a year later. I loath elderly abuse and neglect, and that is exactly what I reported, WITH a truckload of EVIDENCE....
    Pissed a ton of people off. I warned them and they just blew me off... Been retired ever since and loving it!

    Dang, it seems funny to say "welcome" to a guy with way more post than I have.

    CU, seems as if you done gone and "divorced" corporate America and took your "maiden name" back. Essentially to them to go piss up a rope. (Hee, hee) I think we might be related.
