I will tell a bit about myself to explain my reason for saying what I have to say.

Am grey-haired. Am a person past my three score and 10. Walk with a stick and drag my oxygen in a tank behind me.

It could be said I have conservative views, but am not a party person. I was taught to listen to and respect the views of others. I would never, never, never say anyone was part of a lunatic fringe.


Maybe this new way of attacking the views of others is exactly what is wrong in D.C. today.

Listening and learning helps us achieve. Name calling, well, just seems wasteful to me.

Now this is only my personal, lunatic fringe view.
