Hello from the U.S.

Just want to say hi to those of you who are Swiss and my Ex-pat countrymen and women there.

I came to this forum based on a suggestion from Americanlockpicker. I was curious about societal trends in violence and am currently still trying to get answers in regards to this.

My surname has origins to the area that included Switzerland called "Schwabenland or Swabia" dating back to the 1500s. I have been to Switzerland when I was very young and do not remember much at all.

I would sometime like to go back and meet my long lost family members who are there and in the Baden area of Germany.

Very glad to know about the forum. My family members - some of whom are facebook friends now! - - speak Swissgerman mostly, so it cannot be translated by Google translate - their English is "rough" at best, so it is good to be able to have discussions across borders using this format with those who are able to write in the English language.

I just want to say thanks!

Re: Hello from the U.S.

Welcome to the forum.

Beware of the Liberals on here. They want to take your guns away and eat your babies.

Trust me. I'd stay well clear of them, if I were you. They're building an internment camp in Olten as we speak...

But the rest of us are lovely. Do you like guns? I like guns. I had immense fun with a .375 Ruger a couple of weeks ago, and still have the bruises to prove it (although my wife has to refresh it every couple of days with a potato masher).
