Since Dec 1, 2000
Decided against joining the military in the wake of Vietnam (and the Demoncrat Congress pulling the rug out from under our South Vietnamese allies) - also the thought of Jimmuh Carter as my C in C was a little unnerving.
Instead of enlisting, I swung a hammer on a southern construction crew "for a living".
Raised by parents who were blue-collar John Birch Society members and turned onto politics at an early age.
Pro-life, (at conception), pro-second amendment, (I carry a Ruger .357), pro-traditional family, (one man, one woman).
Wife home-schools our daughter, and we have a couple of (ungrateful) rescue cats.
Born-again Christian, (although I still like to listen to Hendrix and The Clash - drives my wife nuts).
A rabid member of Red Sox Nation.
"Wave after wave, each one mightier than the last
'Til last, a ninth one, gathering half the deep
And full of voices, slowly rose and plunged
Roaring, and all the wave was in a flame"

ONLY ROAD KILL AND YELLOW STREAKS
