About Me

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.

(The following was taken from of Mar. 22, 2010) TAMPA - A fleet of law enforcement escorted the body of a Marine killed in Afghanistan from at MacDill Air Force Base to St. Petersburg.

The procession crossed Gandy Bridge into St. Petersburg.

The procession left from MacDill's Bayshore Boulevard gate toward Gandy Boulevard. Then it traveled west across Gandy Bridge to Fourth Street North, south to 22nd Street North, west to Martin Luther King Street and north to the funeral home.

Porto, of Largo, was in a convoy in the Helmand province of Afghanistan on March 14 when the truck he was in went off course and tumbled, according to relatives. He got caught underneath and was killed. He was 26.

He was a small-arms repair technician assigned to 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Porto joined the Marines in March 2008 and was promoted to corporal Dec. 1. That month, he deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

One of eight siblings, Porto and his wife, Rachel, were married about 10 months ago. Their daughter was born in January; Porto never got a chance to hold his daughter.
