Thank you - the easiest way is to click that little square icon in the message box toolbar, that is yellow with a mountain and the sun in it, then add your images url location (web adress of the pic) into the box that pops up
Reading your posts on politics, I really like the way you think, to the point all I could add to them is "here, here". I also saw your back-story, and it's awesome, good for you! I'm new here myself, but from what I've seen, it's a nice place. I hope you stick around.
