I'm a dude. Regulars know me.

I thoroughly enjoy donuts, economics, politics, and criminology.

I play video games, work full time, and am about to start learning Mandarin.

I'm a fiscal liberal with an economist' take on taxation. I want to eliminate income and payroll taxes, corporate income taxes, all deductions (Including mortgage), eliminate the healthcare deduction, and tax consumption in its place. Listen to planet money here: Kane's Economic Platform

I find myself favoring Democrats over Republicans these days but I'm a registered Republican in the state of California (Much to the chagrin of other posters of both parties).

My name is Stratego (pronounced Stra-tee-Joe, not Stra-tee-Go)

I'm an engineer and a philosopher. Those whom I've debated either describe me as the cleverest man they know or says that my ignorance knows no bound. Either way I'm pushing the extremities of knowledge and ignorance.

Sigmund Freud defined four parts of a psyche; the id, the ego, the superego and the stratego. The Stratego being the highest form of morality and scientific thinking.

I'm not sure what the difference is based on the way we write it, but the ending sound is -Joe not -Go.

The way you wrote it makes it appear the a is pronounced as it is in "fate," while the way Homer wrote it makes it appear the a is pronounced as it is in "fat."
