Susanne Posel ,Chief Editor Occupy Corporatism | The US Independent July 8, 2014   While some have blamed austerity for the consolidation of police departments nationwide, it is clear that local police departments (LPDs) have become private security firms hired by each municipality to preform “policing services” on behalf of local government. In 2005, the US Supreme Court ruled that police officers and departments are not required by the US Const...

Retired. Student.
Basic Information
In a domestic partnership
I am what I am.
Spent 4 years in military. Got out. Love music and the mind. After 20 years of not playing, I now have a violin again. I played an acoustic violin for 12+ years but I decided to go with an electric this time. I can now add that to acoustic guitar and electric bass. Now if I had a tambourine and was an octopus I'd have it made. My violin skills are far superior to my guitar and bass skills. I also sing tenor/alto working on 2nd soprano. It all depends on the time of day. I think in the am I'm almost a baritone, just a little creepy. 

I also enjoy technology and am learning some programming. I like what is happening in makerspaces and the amateur electro-doodad industry. I like Arduino, Beaglebone Black, Raspberry Pi, etc. 
Bragging rights
I play the violin.
