“I believe in God the Father
Almighty Maker of Heaven and Maker of Earth
And in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son, our Lord
I believe in the Holy Spirit
One Holy Church
The communion of Saints
The forgiveness of sin
I believe in the resurrection
I believe in a life that never ends”
“I’d fight them all big or small, Angel Dust and Bud Tall
Collars up and fists the same, protect your friends and family name
Had my lumps, recieved a few, but not near what I deserved
Some say this life’s my punishment
Some say this life’s my just deserves”
First and foremost I am a Christian. An old time, Blood washed, Saved by Grace, child of the King. I am a husband and a father of three. I am a firefighter in a mid-sized town in Michigan. I am a patch holding biker in a national club. I am passionate,opinionated, always up front, loyal to a fault, and at times a royal pain in the ass!
I Love music. I can talk to you about every thing from Southern Gospel Quartet’s(The Cathedrals, Bill Gaither etc.), to Island Music (Peter Tosh, Marley, Jimmy Buffet etc.) to Country, to Heavy Metal, to Hardcore Punk, to my current favorite: Celtic Punk (Dropkick Murphy’s, Street Dogs, Real Mckenzies, The Tossers et al.).
I drink Jim Beam Whiskey, Skyy Vodka, and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. I have been overserved on many occassions, but don’t think that’s a problem.
I go on smoking jags. I have smoked cigars and cigarettes on and off for over 30 years and doubt that I’ll ever quit completely.
I believe that the only reason Marijuanna isn’t legal is because Congress can’t figure out how to tax something anyone can grow. And not giving him his cut is a sure way to earn a politician’s enmity.
I believe that the only reason capital punishment isn’t seen as a deterent to crime is because it hasn’t been applied correctly since the days of “Get a Rope!”. I think all capital cases should work on both an expedited trial and appeal system. Anyone found guilty of a capital offense (and I include rape and pedophilia in this category) should be publicly put to death no later than two weeks following their conviction.
I was a scrapper when I was young, but age has brought me a measure of patience that allows me to suffer fools if not gladly, then at least enough to keep me from going on a shooting spree.
This introduction could go on forever, but I think you are getting an idea of who I am. Friends have at various times compared me to Danny Bonaduce and Tommy Gavin (Dennis Leary’s character on “Rescue Me”). I never met him, but after reading his biography, I KNOW Johnny Cash. In future post’s I plan to comment on whatever I bloody well please and hope that I bring something real to the people that happen upon this blog.
