Who Are You?

Just wondering what everybody's background is in terms of gender, race, religion, education, career, political affiliation, interests, etc. If you feel it's nobody's business that's fine, but if you're so inclined . . .

For me, I'm an African-American of Jewish decent (not a guy that Hitler would care for). Educated at Harvard (BA '82) and Wharton MBA Program at Univ. of PA. I'm currently a business consultant for several Fortune 100 companies. Married with three kids. Enjoy being with my family, playing tennis, vacationing in Europe, mountain biking, horse-back ridding, hiking, and making money for myself and others that I work for.

And you?

Irish American, raised Cathlolic (now agnostic), I'd consider myself Libertarian but with some different views than the current Libertarian party platform. I'm involved in IT and web development stuff.

RE: Who Are You?

Scottish, Catholic upbringing, 40's, been in academia & research all my life. Biologist (spatial ecology & statistics), moved there from in evolutionary genetics. Left wing, liberal, firmly agnostic. Fed up with greedy, pompous and stupid people, though I have a sneaking suspicion I'm not as clever as I think. Obsessed with old cars, beermaking, tropical fish, hillwalking and backpacking. Live in the Scottish Highlands in an old farmhouse, trying to fill the barn with rusty cars.

39 yr old Saxon-American. BA/MPA Public Sector consultant. Married 7 yrs, with three kids and two cats. Politically independent commie pinko. I like long walks on polluted beaches, French chambermaids, and hairy fruit. I have no interest in making money and it shows.

RE: Who Are You?

39 year old SGWM, working in the transportation industry for the last 12 years. Of course no kids at all ever, but I do take care of an invalid parent and a 12 year old dog. I like to take care of my yard, and I enjoy breathing. My Mercedes used to be a hobby, but with my other responsibilities, for the moment they are just cars, mere transportation to and from the place where I trade my time for $$$$.

Education was two years of state university. I'm athiest, and my ancestry is Scottish and Irish.

Politically I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative. I am a card-carrying member of the Log Cabin Republicans, but won't be voting republican this go-round.

RE: Who Are You?

48 year old white bread, under educated, under paid blue collar worker(machinist).
Political inclination right now is up in the air. I don't like much of anything I see.
Interested in most anything involving machinery.
Married 25 years, raised 3 well mannered kids to adulthood.
Fairly conservative in the religous area, and will not compromise, but I can live and let live if you want me to.[;)]

RE: Who Are You?

OK, I'm 35, BS in surveying from Purdue U. (Go Boilers!); carpenter and surveyor...working on a couple of side business ideas... My hobbies, well, many but here is a shorter list: cars, off-roading, bow hunting, b-packing, canoeing, camping, road tripping, mtn. biking, wood carving (gotta get back to it this winter,) maple sugaring, and since i am single i'm going to have to say ladies too... I grew up catholic but kinda agnostic but i liked whatever crash9 linked here somewhere. I'm somewhat conservative with a tree hugging tick... I grew up in a few different places around the globe. I live in the USA now and like it overall.
