great multi-tasker--wrote 2 briefs today while posting.

some were talking about their backgrounds and so I said I put my educationa nd background somewhere in my postings, but simply here that I was an attorney.
Where do you get so much time to post if you are an attorney?

Sorry, would have done this sooner if not for my long absence.



1. Chris
2. Reynoldsville, PA  (I go to school in Erie, PA so I spend most of the year up there, but I'm originally from Reynoldsville and I don't plan to move back after school, I might stay in Erie, but I'm thinking of moving south to Virginia or North Carolina)
3. Republican
4. Reagan
5. Churchill
6. I just sorta did.  My family is Republican on one side and Democrat on the other.  The Democrat side turned me off.
7. Hmmm.  Discovered the atlas first, about a year ago.  Discovered the forum a month and a half ago.
8. Don't have many friends who are political (even though I'm a Poli Sci major, so go figure).  So I like to discuss subjects and get others oppinions.
9. History, Reading, Writing (mainly political thrillers and counter-factual stories, nothing published) Baseball and Football.
10. Lord of the Rings (all three)
      Saving Private Ryan
      Gettysburg
      Patton
11. Don't know, really.
12. Nothing really.  You can ask if you want to know.

P.S.  This reminds me of a dating website LOL


I love counter-factual histories! (political thrillers too, but that's not as unusual and hence less interesting.) Btw, it seems Churchill and LOTR comes up rather often here. What does that say about us? Smiley

Wasn't Churchill half-American?

I love counter-factual histories! (political thrillers too, but that's not as unusual and hence less interesting.)

For a combination of both, I recommend Fatherland by Robert Harris. An excellent counterfactual thriller, in case you haven't read it already.

Oh! I've read it and loved it! (I epsecially liked the cover, with an EU-flag and a Swastika flag. Unfair but fun.) Have you read Archangel by Harris? I thought that was great as well.

Unfortunately, I haven't read Archangel. What's it about?

An American or British (I can't remember which right now) historian is visiting Russia in the 90s, and hears about Stalin's notebook. He starts searching for it, but is rivaled by die-hard stalinists. Something very unexpected then develops, reavealing dark secrets...

I can't really tell you much about it, though, since it would ruin the reading. Smiley Still, I found it highly enjoyable. It was one of those books which I was stupid enough to lend a friend and never got back. Sad

You're welcome, hope you will find it and enjoy it. When it comes to borrowing books I am being slightly hypocritical. It has happened that I have borrowed books and not returned them. It is more due to a wandering mind and being a bad organizer than anything else.

Well, I'll admit I'm the same. I have one book which I borrowed from somebody circa 1996. And there are still some CDs lying around which I borrowed from an ex-girlfriend (not that I have any intention of returning them Wink).

Dr. Strangelove is great! Funny with a republican named Dean coming from Hawaii. Smiley The first guy from Hawaii on the forum that I have seen so far!

Dr. Strangelove: Or How I stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb is indeed a GREAT film. It's listed in the top 20 of my favorite films list.

See!  Goldwater got this conservative interested in positics, and Howard Dean will get liberals interested in politics even if he loses.

Thank you for the welcome. Hawaii has some of the most wonderful people on Earth, but is an unusual place politically. The people here have had a long history of being treated like children. First, the Hawaiian monarchy was strong and paternalistic. Then, the Boston missionaries came in and pretty much treated the Hawaiians like lost sheep that needed correction. Then the sugar barons set up plantation systems and company towns that ruled the workers from cradle to grave.

Naturally, most people here are enamored of the Nanny State, having been babied for much of their history. In the last election, there was one candidate whose ad flat out said, "Vote for so-and-so, she will take care of us"!

The unions are very powerful; one reason is that the unions were one of the strongest supporters of Statehood. The large land and business owners were quite content to run their businesses without Federal workplace safety and other rules, and the workers saw that with Statehood they would have stronger Federal protections at the workplace.

Also, Asian businessmen were excluded from the Republican Party (Hawaii started out as a Republican stronghold!) because of the racism of the 50’s. The Democrats took advantage of the situation and welcomed the Asians, thus creating a political power base when these Asian businessmen became economically powerful.

Hawaii will almost always vote Democrat in the national elections. Our Republican Governor is a liberal Republican, and as many of you political junkies know, state and national politics can frequently be very different.
