  • That's Mr. Cynic to you!
 ..... Been a while since I was NEW anywhere and I doubt I'm very different from most here.

Hunter of anything edible except geese (don't care for the taste) shooter (PPC, IDPA, CAS, Target & of course, 'yotes; I'll drive 100 miles to cap one of those - I raised sheep & an ex had horses)

A variety of life experiences as I was raised to be busy, productive as possible and make my own way.

Enjoy fishing almost as much but really only like to eat something from deep, cold water so I don't fish much any more.

Confirmed sceptic & a practising curmudgeon

Trust about 0.05% of anything presented by ANY MSM outlet & change channels as soon as I hear "Let me introduce the panel ...." Give me the 5Ws and I'll make up my own damn mind, thank you.

As I find POLS from either side of the aisle very capable of and, likely to, lie in furtherance of their own agendas, I'm fairly apolitical but heartily despise bureaucrats, no matter where located, period.

SO: bored yet?

Not much on geese either... now a groundhog.. thumb1

I'm too damn lazy to fish anymore, thats time better spent.... napping, breaking something or aggravating someone.

You got me skeptical.... everyone does... but hey, I'm just cantankerous  :)

Welcome from demon-cratic Virginia.... thumb1 thumb1 the backwoods western part, I can literally see freedom to the west in West Virginia at times, and still catch a whiff of the putrid smell from DC as it funnels down the valley.

Leave the gun – take the cannoli.

Let me stop this Goose bashing before it gets out of hand. Have you ever smoked Geese (no GM not like a cigarette or in a pipe) I mean marinated and put in a smoker. Now those are some tasty breasts. I don't know if my Godson will give me the recipe, it's proprietary.  wink1
In fact, I ate some last night.

Anyway Griz375 welcome from Ohio. My thoughts are very similar to yours. You'll have a good time here.

Welcome!

Skepticism is a good practice. When someone tells me they have alternative facts they are letting me know that they’re about to lie to me but would like me to believe the lies, and “please repeat them to your friends, thank-you”.  fart1 chuckles1

Talking head shows are entertainment for the faithful where they sometimes advertise that they’re the only ones telling you the truth, so you can be certain that they aren’t.  fineprint  rofl

All politicians and lawyers—just assume they’re lying until you verify for yourself that they aren’t.  nea1

Mainstream media, I don’t reject everything they say or print just because they’re MSM. There are undoubtedly some individuals with journalistic integrity in the Murdoch, McClatchy, Forbes, Turner, Bloomberg, etc. empires, but those journalists are all individuals with their own biases. The organizations they work for are run by people with tons of money and an agenda of their own, run from the top down, so be skeptical indeed.  read1 punish1

Finally, be skeptical of ourselves and our own tendency towards confirmation bias, parochialism and tribalism  think1 When we start believing only people of our age, race, creed, ethnicity, nationality, gender, party have the corner on the market for truth, morality, ingenuity...and even humanity, then the new Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, or Pol Pot is waiting just around the corner to recruit us.  :-*  bat1

Welcome from Arizona.

You know it's a good thread when the terms "nailed a brazen female" and "those are some tasty breasts" are both used...
