Since Jul 25, 2004
A little about me:
I am 40ish, married with two sons living in Pierce County, Washington. I lived my childhood in the boonies of Bradford County, Pennsylvania. The whitetail deer still tremble at my name mostly due to road-kill with my 1979 Dodge Omni while dodging pot holes. I was in Air Defense Artillery (HAWK pictures below) while in the Army. My MOS was 24H. Thats Improved HAWK Fire Control Repairman. I eventually wound up at Fort Lewis where I separated from the service in 1987 and stayed put. No scrapple, no Tasteykakes and lots of libs. Why do I stay?
For the last 19 years I've been a cop...well detective now (it beats working for a living) for a municipality in Western Washington. The highlights of my police tour of duty have been serving on a Street Crimes/Narcotics Unit for five years and four years as a SWAT Team sniper. All in all, it's been a pretty humbling experience. I never thought I'd be a cop in my younger days, but what the heck...I'm pretty good at it. Some of the high points over the last year have been complaints from "concerned" citizens about me telling folks to go arm themselves.
I have a few hobbies which include, fishing, boating, Shotokan Karate, home-brewing beer, mostly wheat based ales. I also love to read books about the American Revolution, World War Two, Abraham Lincoln and nuclear submarines (I missed my calling in life) or anything by Tom Clancy. I'm also a bird watcher and like tracking the night time sky with my son and his telescope.
I was raised conservative. My Mom, who passed in August 2005, took me down to D.C. in the early 70's on the church bus to protest the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision. My dad, who passed on in 1989, was a World War Two Army veteran. He was a tugboat commander and managed to see action quite a few times. You don't hear much about the sailors in the Army do you? He had some awesome war stories.
Lastly, I'm pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment (an armed society is a polite society), pro-death penalty, anti-liberal conservative in a blue state Catholic.
Hey, it's my son Mitch with Kirby Wilbur, 570-AM KVI, at an Operation Support Our Troops Rally at Fort Lewis!
Rusty Humphries was there too.
|You are a Capitalist Republican|
Money makes your world go round - and it's no surprise that you always vote your wallet. You're financially successful (or plan to be), and your agenda is low tax and pro business. You get fired up about abortion... and mention capital gains tax, and you go crazy. You want government to be as small as possible - and to stay out of the way of business.
