I am an old fashion kind of guy. I believe in the oldest law of nature "survival". I believe it is a man's responsibility and obligation to protect his home and family from the savages of the world, wheather it be the common criminal or Muslim barbarians. I beleive in the Christian God although I do not belong to any organized church. I believe that when you fight a war you fight to win and "police actions" are for pussies. My heroes are Audie Murphy and my Grandfather, who chased Pancho Villa down in Mexico with Black Jack Pershing, and was wounded in World War I. I hate it that since the end of World War II liberals and feminist have tried to emasculate the American male. They have failed, the brave men that fought in Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf Wars have proven that the American male can meet and defeat any enemy that comes at them. I don't like the "Nuke em First Crowd," nuclear war is too terrible. However, if we know the enemy are going to use nuclear weapons on this nation, then all bets are off (revenge will be a Mother Fucker).
Since returning from Iraq (after 14 months) I have been enjoying my retirement and my family in Panama. I have a wonderful wife (Mariela), two beautiful kids (Helen and Teddy) and a absolutely great grandson (Juan Carlos (Jon - Jon)). Life is good.
