Howdy to fellow patriots! After productively lurking for a long time I finally opted for membership despite a balky and uncooperative computer (Moderator: Thank you for your patience!). I'm deeply concerned about the downward trend of our country towards a dark political abyss never before imagined, our gradual loss of gun freedom, how we have been demonized for traditional values and activities near and dear to us. I miss the America I knew and served. Semper fi.
