• Update on weirdness

    Update on site issues: (1. replies now need a title *and* something in the message box, 2. certain links are causing strange pop-ups on Apple devices, and 3. Some folks can't type anything into the text box.) Basically, a series of unfortunate events set us back on testing. We'll get to it as soon as we can, and hopefully things can get fixed by this weekend if not before.  More info: https://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/site-problems-more-info/

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.
