• Site changes

    Site will be down for an hour overnight (Mon/Tue) for an hour, some significant "behind the scenes" server changes happening. If all goes well, you'll see nothing different tomorrow except for faster speed and encrypted connections (HTTPS). Not sure of exact timing.

Bio / About

I am a democratic socialist, an old retired guy, living on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.  During my working years, I worked in a bicycle shop, repaired electronics and operated a nuclear reactor in the military, worked on a dairy farm, fought wild fires, made you take off your shoes at the airport (TSA), worked in a federal program for at-risk young people, and a few other things.  My primary interest now is keeping my wife happy by renovating our two old houses.  I also ride my bicycle, and talk on ham radio, but not both at the same time.  Like many of you, I was active on a different site, and was chased away by orthodox party faithful who believe stifling dissent is the path to success.  I wanted Bernie, and caucuses for him, but voted for Hillary in the general, the same as so many of you.  So I guess I’m a rather typical disgruntled Democrat, waiting to see if the party is willing to change enough to include me, but not holding my breath.
