Your, right, I do come across that way, and I do get grumpy, especially if what I am reading is BS and stems from someplace other then common sense. I get impatient with whining and the constant looking for someone else to solve our problems. So, even though I don't intend to come across that way, I'm sure at times I do.You can come across as a bit of a grumpy guy at times and we don't always agree, however you do also talk a lot of sense as the above post demonstrates .
I was just thinking about that the other day and have made the conclusion that the older we get the more grumpy we get. For one thing we have fallen out of control of our lives, our bodies, our environment and we are subject to ailments that we never even thought about a just a few years ago. It gets discouraging when you just get over one hurdle and another jumps in the way. So, if I do come across that way, I'm just frustrated like the rest of you, mine possible more in the last year and a half when I've seen the deterioration of the country and the idealism that I loved and went to war to defend. Lot's of things factor in, and there is no excuse for that behavior, but, there it is. If I have offended people, I wasn't intending to unless I was attacked and then my training is to fight back. If I was attacked first... no holds are barred.
