Just an old guy [Texas Conservative] who likes inquisitive people. A mechanical engineer for over 0 years. Plastic pipe was my specialty. Additional 3 years in Government jobs. Also, USAF 1963-1967. Retired and having fun. As a military child, I have a unique perspective for having been to all 50 states at least twice. I have lived in a third of them. In business I traveled to many foreign countries including Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, France and Russia. The one thing I noticed is people are about the same. They just want to be left alone. Hence what we have to deal with is leaders. Quote: If a socialist wants to use their money for social programs that is fine with me. But do not use my money for your programs. That is not fine with me.
