About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

An award for me?

I'm flattered. Really.

Okay, time to get into the rules of the thing.

1) Say "Thanks!" to the presenter of the award and provide a link to their blog.

Consider it done to Paul at Thoughts of A Regular Guy and Joe of Verbum Veritatis.

2) Share 10 honest things about myself.

Not much to share really, I'm fairly simple and straightforward.

a. I love the writings of Mark Twain.

b. I left the Church back in my teens. One of the writers who led me back was Hans Kung, go figure.

c. "Guy" movies that end with the hero dead or defeated are my favorite. A few examples would be "Das Boot", "Moby Dick" (Gregory Peck version), and "The Culpepper Cattle Company". I tell the War Department the story is in real men making a stand for what they believe in. She tells me "real men" are idiots! We agree to disagree on this.

d. I believe the Pope does his job best when he annoys the snot out of everyone.

e. Being in the military was really the only work enviornment I fit into. Since getting out into the civilian community, the majority of formal jobs I've held ended with my quitting or being fired. I forget who said it, but he noted submarine sailors were misfits who work well together. Kinda makes sense.

f. I left the Navy back in January of '93. Many folks told me I'd regret it someday. I'm still waiting. IMHO it was definetly time to go!

g. I was required to take a computer familiarization course when I first went to a community college back in '94. The instructor had low expectations of me, maybe because my first question was, "How in hell do I turn this thing on?". I went on to score a 3.9 on a 4.0 scale.

h. My brother and I constantly battled as children. One of my biggest successes in our ongoing war was when I convinced him he'd been adopted. My parents were not impressed.

i. That same brother died unexpectedly 25 years ago. Still miss him.

j. I don't like to argue but when I do there's no backup in me. The War Department has said thats an asset and a liability. Whatever.

3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

Let's see, that would be;

Subvet, thank you, Sir~
I'm very honored to be considered by the likes of you, and kinda shocked for the same reason.

I will try to continue to be worthy, both of your recognition and of our country's affections.
My very best to you and your good wife, family, my friend~!

I bow in humble gratitude to you for this unexpected honor. I hope and pray that I will be able to continue to live up to the standards of good blogging.

OH, those two guys are just trying to get on your good side. You gave it to me to cause me to find 6 bloggers I call friend or actually they call me friend. We both know only MM might, might, qualify. Besides with Mal, and MRG on the list two of my potentials are gone.

Having said that and in keeping with good blogging standards I am humbled and honored by this award. I would like to thank the academy, my producer, my director, my..........blah......blah.....

As I have told you before. Being the only "true American" we all should be trying to get on YOUR good side!


Oh yeah, am I on your good side?


You know what? I think I'll go over to seven liberal blogs and drop this on them. It should drive them crazier than they all ready are!!
