Well, when me and the wife brought Lil' JoJo home, it was a joyous occasion. The wolves we killed to claim him had the whitest fur that we used to make his diapers. Since he was born with two tongues his new mother REALLY enjoyed breast feeding him. Yet, she had to stop at the age of twenty because that kind of thing was frowned upon on the college campus.

One day I found him installing cameras in our bedroom and I said

"Dammit boy, what the hell 'r ya doing son!"

He looked at me with those ambitious fake eyes I bought him and said,

"Trust me Dad, one day EVERYONE will be able to see into EVERY household and NOONE will ever get dressed without a screen to block them!"

That's when I hit him......and, I've been here in jail every since.....cause it was all on camera.

I hope this brief Biography has been helpful

But, seriously...

Books.  I read a lot.  My favorite is anything by Robert A. Heinlein, but most notably..."Stranger In A Strange Land" and "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress".  Two others that I make it a point to read every five years or so:  "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand and "The Sun Also Rises" by Ernest Hemingway.

Music.  While there has been much good music produced since 1975 or so, my favorite rock music comes from before that time.  JoJoGunne, my namesake, is one such group.  They are also the predecessors to Spirit...another band I especially like.  One of my sons is a sophomore music ed major in college.  I have him to thank for my love (and my limited knowledge) of classical music.  Computer games have exposed me to the wonderful world of gaming music...what I listen to most nowadays.

I am an Air Force Brat and I spent what seems to be a lifetime in the U.S. Army.  I'm out of that now.  Thanks to Uncle Sam, I am a world traveler.

I'm also kind of a computer nerd.  I bought my first PC in 1995...and I've built every computer I've owned since then.  My current system has dual 27" monitors and dual EVGA GTX 680's in SLI.  Yes...it can run Crysis 3 at max settings.

So, rlcfan, I don't know what else I can tell you...but ask and, if it's not too personal, I'll be happy to answer.

Religion.  I was raised as a Catholic, but gave it up when I was 18 or so.  I just didn't feel the need for all the ritual.  Since then I've pretty much come to the conclusion that there is no God.

Guns.  Well, I was in the Army so I'm very familiar with a range of firearms and stuff to blow things up with.  I own a Lee-Enfield .303 Jungle Carbine that was made in 1946.  A great bolt-action rifle that is as accurate as the day it was produced.  I fully support the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and I disagree with any attempts to infringe upon my right to bear arms.

Police brutality.  In a country of 300 million people, the situations you see on youtube are not commonplace.  Yes, out of the tens of thousands of policemen across the country, there are some bad ones.  They usually don't keep their jobs for long.  Personally, I have never met a bad policeman.

Hi again, I'm back on the air....after my PC decided to go on a strike for a few days. Maybe too much porn.... because it kept overheating.

Well, RLCFan I know that your question was for JoJo but I would like to give my point of view on that matter.

First of all I dont know where are you from but I'll assume you are from outside USA (like myself).

The thing is, being outside one country just leaves you depending on the media to get an idea of what's going on in that country, in our case, United States. The fact is that everybody tends to compare his country with USA in direct terms and most of the time that kind of comparison will lead you to misjudge the facts because the statistics are not even to be compared. I'll try to explain it with some figures. In my case I live in Spain with +45.000.000 population and 500.000 Km2 area. How can anyone compare any number of anything with USA +315.000.000 people an about 20 times the size od Spain. To make a good comparison you should have to use the whole European Union te get close: +500.000.000 people and half the size of the USA. But again, you'll only get the most accurate information just over your own country and depend on the media to know what's going on another country, lets say the news I get from Poland while I live in Spain. If in Poland does not happen something really shocking (police brutality, mass murder, terrorism and so on) I won't get any info over there. So then I would tend to thing that terrible things happens always in other countries and that will not be the whole picture.

At th end you'd need the most shocking and of course BAD news, because good news doesn't sell newspapers, of all over Europe together and then export them to another place by the media. Then what do you think the people of that place would think about Europe? that it's completely fucked up....and surely is not the real scenario.

Sorry if I've written to much and if it's not very clear but it's hard to debate in a language it's not yours.

I think the police in the US are becoming to powerful. The police have forgotten who they work for, and for the most part that's because we have let them. We need to have citizen oversight boards for the police in our communities. There is an inherent conflict of interest when the police are investigating crimes committed by police. Police brutality and harassment is a fairly common occurrence in the U.S., for a country that claims to love freedom we have way to many laws. The Police in this country can not be trusted to honor or respect our rights. On a personal level I think anyone who becomes a cop has a chip on their shoulder, and I generally view them as scum. Why would you want to make a living by imprisoning people for victimless crimes, or handing out traffic tickets that ruin peoples day?

Perhaps my locality is much different from yours, but I do not share your assessment.  Oh, and my city DOES have a citizen's oversight board.  We also elect our Police Chief, so if his cops are as bad as yours are, the guy gets booted at the next election.

Perhaps you should move to Colorado.
