Not sure where I rank nor does it matter much to me but I enjoy coming to the off season to catch up from time to time.

I suppose I'm one of the longer standing members here, but have never posted in high numbers. Usually hung around the Guns forum the most, but drop in to the Off Season and Politics forums now and then to take the pulse.

Don't post much these days as I'm spending a great deal of time caring for an elderly mom. Time is the one thing we can never create or get back, and I'm spending as much time with her as I can ... like I should ... I'm treating that time like pure gold. We lost dad two years ago, and mom and the whole family are still recovering from that while we care for mom @ 92 years young.

This is still a great site, though the hey-days are gone (I think). I don't even remember when I actually joined, but it was a long time ago. I think my member # is five hundred-something and think I joined in the late 90's, but I can't be sure.

If we could get vc1111 to pen another saloon anthology it might spark things up a bit. Then again, many of the characters of old that were the building materials for those stories have moved on, in one way or another.

I am still here. I post once in a while.
Some of you older members may remember my WOUNDED WEENIE story? I wrote it back in 2001 and it was a true and funny thing that happened to me! I was asked to rewrite it in 2006,i think that was when? I did so and it lasted a couple of hours and then it was sensored and removed?
From that day on i figured that the folks ,on here, personalites had changed and were not as we use to be,so i just lurked. I still check in but it is different from back then.
A funny thing ,on site,was the day a lady wanted to know what my name"MOUNTING MAN" ment? She thought i may have been a PORN STAR???????
Any how,the wounded one still is here and watching BIG JOHN and all you other crippled old arrow slingers!!!!!

I think the highlited would be a more accurate way to describe Phil. I don't think many of us would like to be called a Communist. But that is just me and I'll leave any editing or not to you.
I don't see calling someone a Communist as an insult. Communism is a valid economic and social philosophy. He's in good company. Jesus' non-religious teachings are basically Communistic. And the early Christian community attempted to live according to those Communistic principles. Check out Acts 2: 42-47.

The problem with Communism is not that it's evil, but that it doesn't work. The early Christians abandoned it as does, eventually, every society that implements it.

Your explanation requires too much thinking for me. In my younger days.... if I were in a bar and someone called me a Commie that would be grounds for a knuckle sammie. Now that I am older and wiser all I can do is offer an opinion.

Hey Mounting man- good to hear from you. I remember wounded weenie....who could forget it !!!! I still laugh about it. Back in them days you had to have thick skin to be here. There were no moderators or they were missing in action. We moderated ourselves, and we had a really good time. If you were a bleeding heart liberal tree hugger you got run off real quick. When the "mods" came we went to HCU"s chat room and carried on. There were several mods that run everyone off with their poof pen. Some of us "ole timers" still come back and check in once in awhile. By the way 4pt- change that dirty, skid marked thong will ya !

Sachi, Communism is absolutely evil when a person is forced to live under that kind of government government. When you are a captive of your government and they can lock you up for disagreeing with a government rule vocally, it is evil. Seeing that a lot of Americans were killed fighting communists under our government's orders, I believe every stinking communist and socialist should be summarily deported post haste, let them see what living a real communist and socialist country is like. The Plymouth colony in MA was the first experiment in communism, long before Karl Marx and it failed miserably because human beings need incentive to be productive. In the Plymouth the experiment was a disaster and they were lucky they all didn't starve to death. There was no ownership of anything, land, homes, nothing. All food was divided equally among those who produced and those who were laggards. It only took one winter for Gov. Bradford to realize that communal living would not work because there are those who will do nothing and those who will work and when both are treated the same you wind up with an increasing number of the will nots. Once everyone was given land and allowed to sell the surplus of what they grew they began to prosper and began to be able to ship products back to England. Communism only will semi work, at the oint of a gun, and that dear girl is pure evil!
