I am a self-employed industry analyst in high tech and I thoroughly enjoy reading the smart and often funny commentary I find on FR.  It's a great community!

I was born and raised on Cape Cod, spent 9 years in the peacetime Navy (San Diego, Hawaii, Japan), and returned to live in the Boston area.  From there I moved to the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania, then in April 2016 my wife and I settled in God's country: Georgia.

I also enjoy contributing vanities and images that suit my fancy.

Here is an index to the stories or excerpts I have contributed.


Shall I compare Free Republic to a summer’s day?
Thy Rascal Writers are more fiery and intemperate.
Rough winds do swirl the Snowflakes of January,
And November’s lease on Victory hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of Fake News shines,
And often is Freedom’s complexion dimmed;
And every Founding Fathers’ Creed sometime declines,
By Fraud, or Corruption’s changing course, untrimmed;
But FR’s eternal commentary shall not fade,
Nor Patriots lose possession of the Rights they’re ow’st,
Nor shall Censorship brag thou wand’rest in his shade,
While thy eternal posts to Freedom cause the Internet to Shake.

    So long as Self-Reliance breathes, and Justice Sings.
    So long as Freepers speak defiantly, the Liberty Bell Rings.
