My name is Bob...

But you can call me trumad.

When I joined DU my kids were 6, 5 and 3. They are now 18, 17, 15.

I was 42. Now I'm 54.

Will I be here until I die? Probably--- unless I die prematurely from Skinners Ax.

I know I have a reputation here of being a bit of an a-hole---and much of it is deserved.

But I'm trying everyday to be a better family man, a better friend to my friends, and better virtual man.

But make no mistake--- I hate Republican ideology, and those who spout it. I will fight everyday for equality, A Woman's right to choose, LGBT rights, and for a society that takes care of one another.

Peace,

Tru

1. I can't even imagine what my kids are going to be like in 12 years.

17, 15, and 12. Kind of blows my mind to even think of it.

6. LOL---God Bless you my Man!

Let me tell you---you're gonna have people tell you that it gets tougher for you in their teenage years.

I use to laugh at those people and say---Yeah Right!

Guess what---they were right.

My teenage kids are aging me in Dog years.

I'm approximately 400 years old.

9. Hi Bob!

My name is Rex. My extended name in the profile is just silly, however I was surprised to be the first Rex on this site or first to pick my name as a username, name. Er...hi Bob!

11. Hey, Bob.

I remember you welcoming me here when i first showed up about 8 yrs. ago this month. It was nice to find such an island of sanity back in those days.. Politically i was feeling fairly despondent at the time, although the big turnout for choice in DC had been inspirational.

Anyway, i still remember that. Meant alot. Peace.
