Checking in

Hello all. I have now posted 10 times and a whole new world has opened up to me: I can post more than once every 3 minutes and I can start threads!

Only 40 more posts (actually 39 after this one goes up) and I can use the mail system. Woohoo!!!!

For anyone who's curious, I am a Canadian in his early 40s with a great interest in contemporary American politics. Please don't quiz me on U.S. events of the 1800s (although, like any proud Canuck, I am aware of the War of 1812)! My user name is a play off of our Liberal P.M. Justin Trudeau, who does not walk on water but is a huge improvement over Stephen Harper.

Anyway, back to the madness online. Cheers!

2. Thanks much

It is a pleasure to be here. The last discussion forum I frequented, which was not political in nature, was skewed toward the ugly right. It was frustrating, to say the least.

3. Then it sounds like you've come to the right place!

And we're not just Americans, we're joined by lots of our Canadian neighbors and members from other countries, as well! It's great to have you with us!

6. Bonne chance!

Parles-tu francais? That may be a faulty attempt at French. I understand very little of it.
