Well, I guess I'm one of the "Baby Boomers" Generation, although I just got in on the tail end of it.  Like many of those of us from that generation, the only reason that I'm alive is that The Pill had yet to be invented and abortions were not yet legal.  That's probably why there are so many of us.  Well, that plus the fact that there were a bunch of horny GIs coming back home with pretty much only one thing on their minds.

NavyVet1959 is the online identity
that I use for posting on various internet forums.  It does not have my real name associated with it, thus I can be brutally honest about my views on various topics (e.g. politics, hobbies, my family, etc) without having to be concerned
by repercussions in my personal or business life, or my standing within my community.  I have also posted under the ID of "Grumpy OldMan", but considering how many other guys fall into that category, I do not find it unique enough that I can use it as my handle on the various forums to which I post.

For the most part, I'm a relatively harmless old fart.  My "wild days" are well behind me -- not that they were really all that "wild".  I'll bitch and grumble about most anything, but that just goes with the old saying that we had in the Navy, "A bitching sailor is a happy sailor".  All I really want in life at this point is to be just left alone so I can live out my remaining years with as little interference from others (including the government) as possible.  I've been fairly successful in my stock investments over the years and as long as my wife has some self-control (and inflation doesn't get too bad), we should be able to live out the rest of our lives on what I have saved up.

I believe in the Constitution and that the leftists have ruined our country to the point that the Founding Fathers would be turning over in their graves if they could see what we had done to their grand design.  As such, I tend to be rather vocal on the web forums with respect to Constitutional issues.  Some of the comments on these pages are mine, some are from other forum posts that I completely agree with.
