Mr Nystrom, I owe you a huge Thank You.

Early this morning I got a call, It was a friend I met here on the DP. "Hey! this is Charles, I'm not far away and coming by!". So, sporting a slight hangover I asked "Who"??? Lol. Turns out it was my four year DP buddy Charles Wood from Nevada.

Charles was the delegate chair from his county during the Ron Paul 2012 run. All the delegate votes from his county went to Ron Paul. Charles worked his butt off to make this happen. Some may remember that later the establishment GOP tried to rip off Nevada during the Caucus.

My wife and I had a great time catching up with Charles, It was a meet up long over due for all of us. Charles and I had talked many times at length by phone over the years, both threatening to visit each other at some point.

Charles turned out to be REAL and it was a privilege to kick around with him for part of a day. We went and checked the washes that recently flooded the night before in the "Bugout Bug". Curious how much water actually ran, This much water is a BIG DEAL in the desert.

We caught up on politics of the day "without a keyboard" and gained a respect for each other as real people. I need to thank Mr Nystrom for this opportunity that came from the Daily Paul. It was rich and real, Thank you Sir.

J.R.

Funny....

I am always drunk and I have yet to be banned.

anyone who has been on DP long enough

has most likely encountered the ban hammer once or twice, I think I may be at 3 times, but I try not to be drunk on here anymore,LOL. Thank you Mr. Nystrom also for your tireless efforts on this site. Great story OP.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Yes...

I've come home drunk from a late night of fun a few times on here and gone into troll mode. It's after those moments you almost wish you were censored. Don't drink and DailyPaul. It's a bad idea.

So true

Actually...

Actually I banned myself, lol. Michael has never banned me. He puts up with much more than folks give him credit for.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Thank you Michael

Really, means a lot my friend. And then there is that day when you regret saying things you really did not mean to say. I guess we all have our patience threshold when under stress. Mine broke, Peace man. Thanks for being gracious enough to allow me to still log in!
