I'd gladly trade my second ammendment rights for the right to legally grow and smoke pot. But seeing as how it's not legal and not a good example to set for my son, I have to Just Say No to both drugs and guns.
That's cool with me- as long as I don't have to say no to mine(guns, that is)

It is a real beauty, and I imagine the tone matches.

Army ('72-'80), Army civilian ('81-present - retiring in 3 years).
Brewing since '93 , natch...photog and travel since I was born a ramblin' man, play pop/rock/metal guitar (I have 6 of them, 4 amps and tons of effects pedals) since '71. Been in several bands and played in bars for a couple of years while in college ('81-'82).

I used to be a long distance runner (had a 4:45 mile when I was 17), long hiker, learned mountain climbing in Europe (fell 65' in a free-climbing (no equipment) accident in '78) and snow ski when I was younger...

Sampling beers from around the world in their country of origin...

I'd trade over half the gov't we got for... a ham sandwich or something. Maybe a good cup of coffee.

Not to make this a political thread, but check out The Quiz:

http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz.html

While I have no desire to use the magic herb, I support your right to do whatever you please in your home with your person. So long as you don't harm anyone else - even the unborn.

Gov't should build a few roads, keep a military, protect the borders, jail the perverts & thieves... and that's about it. Legislating morality, stimulating economic growth (a very sore spot with me - State of TN, and county and local governments whored themselves out to the tune of $195 million to lure the Nissan HQ - let the free market determine that!), caring for the lazy, and regulating other free markets that don't need regulation are anti-constitutional.

In addition to sharing libertarian views and stirring up stuff on internet forums, my other hobbies include NRA high power shooting, souping up mine and my wife's diesel pickups, owning several guitars and basses (I'm not good enough to be a "player"), and playing with my kids.

Well I've been playing the violin for 8 years, and I sometimes like to shoot random things with my pellet rifle. Other than that my interest is food :yum:
