What up kinfolk!!!

I'd just like to say greetings to all like-minded rational thinkers.  I represent San Antonio, Texas and I'm an alum of the University of Texas at San Antonio.  It's always good to know that there are others who share similar views on the world and it's inhabitants.

Welcome to the

Welcome to the forum.

....this long without any other replies? What's going on?

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

Welcome!

From the Seattle area, I wish you a great welcome to the site and I hope you enjoy your stay. See you in the discussions.

What are you going to do if

What are you going to do if Texas secedes from the union?

ChucK Noris would be your president. I think I have it bad living in the South East coast out in the middle of nowhere, but Texas scares the shit out of me, with the exception of Austin.

Thanks for the welcome...I

Thanks for the welcome...I know everyone likes to beat up on Texas because it's an easy target, but I love Texas(Football and BBQ-my two favorite things).  I grew up in Wiesbaden, Germany and my family is from the Bronx, so i've been a lot of different places.  I have to say, I've met the realest people I ever met in San Antonio.  Florida is far more frightening.

If you go to any state, and travel to it's "non-urban" areas, you'll see and hear strange shit....It's not just Texas, at least that's been my experience.
