Just to let any curious FReepers know, the screen name has it's meaning. No, I have never been to space (NASA would probably reject me on principle) but I am a truck driver, mostly @ night, and spend a lot of time looking @ the stars - though I should be looking @ the road. And I am somewhat a fan of Deep Purple, but not overly so. The time I spend going down the long and sometimes lonely roads of this great nation of ours lends itself to occasional deep thought. Not to say it's any more valid than anyone else's, just a bit more extensive than some.
I served 4 years in the U.S.M.C., in a helicopter squadron (CH-53's) during the loss of our bases in the Philippines and also during the first Gulf War. I have a military man's perspective on politics and life in general, and don't care for the B.S. that is prevalent in most of the news outlet's nightly 'casts.
I am deeply devoted to my God, my wife, my family and friends and will do whatever it takes to protect and provide for them.
I consider myself to be staunchly Conservative and believe that liberalism is a mental disorder - really. As I don't hate any one individual, I have a deep-seated loathing for many behaviors that the Left is want to champion and hope to one day be able to convince just one true liberal of the error of their ways.
We must all do our part to protect this country and our way of life @ all costs. There is no other nation on the face of this earth that I, and dare I say, or any of you would rather live in.
