    I would have been here earlier but I had to go read the rules first.....

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Allan and I like to discuss politics online. Yes I realize that condition can be treated and sometimes even cured. But so far the patches, gum, 12 step program etc haven't worked.

    I mostly like to discuss American politics because let's face it, there is a need for some tweaking. But I've also noticed the UK government is lurching around lately so could also benefit from some advice.

    Like everyone else on this type of forum I know everything there is to know about how to fix the world, if only they would listen to me! I look forward to getting to know everyone in this community and working with you all to help sort out those deranged and confused miscreants we elected to run the world for us.

    I loved Carlin's no BS approach to stuff.

    Howdy Doody, Allan!

    I don't know about you, but I didn't elect anyone to run the world for me and I don't know everything there is to know about how to fix the world. Other than that, you and I are just alike.

    Oh...wait...you are a liberal. We are NOT alike. Oh well, welcome to the forum anyway.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Now see...you and I are going to get along very well. I'll say stuff and you'll misunderstand what I say.

    I didn't say I don't know everything. I said I don't know everything there is to know about how to fix the world.
