GeneralReading, writing, traveling, shooting, genealogy, fishing, camping, sewing, and of course my son!
MusicI like a little of everything, but I will always be a diehard country fan.
MoviesOK, here's the short list: Any Disney Animated Film, A Beautiful Mind, Master and Commander, Shawshenk Redemption, Schindlers List, 10 Things I hate About You, Any of the Indiana Jones Movies, Gladiator, Hope Floats, Any and all of the Star Wars Trilogy and Episodes, And I am sure there are others...
HeroesMy daddy of course, and he may be young but my son is pretty tough for 8. As for people you may have heard of...the person(s) who invented post-it-notes and daily planners. If it wasn't for them I would forget everything.
And here is a little more insight into my personality. I didn't write this and it is old, but it still holds true in my humble opinion. I agree with almost all of it.
I'm a Bad American -
"This pretty much sums it up for me. I like big trucks, big boats, big houses, and naturally, pretty women. I believe the money I made belongs to me and my family, not some mid-level governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts squirting out babies. I don't care about appearing compassionate. I think playing with toy guns doesn't make you a killer. I believe ignoring your kids and giving them Prozac might.
I think I'm doing better than the homeless. I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized. I have the right not to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird or make me mad. This is my life to live, and not necessarily up to others' expectations. I know what SEX is and there are not varying degrees of it.
I don't celebrate Kwanzaa, but if you want to that's fine; I just don't feel everyone else should have to. I believe that if you are selling me a Dairy Queen shake, a pack of cigarettes, or a hotel room you do it in English. My uncles and forefathers shouldn't have had to die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come disrespect ours, and make us bend to your will. Get over it.
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry butt if you're running from them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word 'freeze' or 'stop' in English, see the previous line. I don't use the excuse 'it's for the children' as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions. I know how to count votes and I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation do a recount when needed. I know what the definition of lying is, and it isn't based on the word 'is' - ever.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you qualify for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans, etc., so you can open a hotel, 7-Eleven, trinket shop, or anything else, while indigenous peoples can't get past a high school education because they can't afford it. I didn't take the initiative in inventing the internet. I thought the Taco Bell dog was funny. I want them to bring back safe and sane fireworks. I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osborne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang, but the doesn't mean I want to listen to that crap from someone else's car when I'm stopped at a red light. But I respect your right to.
I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at Blockbuster or Jack in the Box. I don't want to eat or drink anything with the words light, lite or fat-free on the package. Our soldiers did not go to some foreign country and risk their lives in vain and defend our Constitution so that decades later you can tell me it's a living document ever changing and is open to interpretation. The guys who wrote it were light years ahead of anyone today, and they meant what they said - now leave the document alone, or there's going to be trouble.
I don't hate the rich. I help the poor. I know wrestling is fake. I've never owned, or was, a slave and a large percentage of our forefathers weren't wealthy enough to own one either. Please stop blaming me because some prior white people were idiots - and remember, tons of white, Indian, Chinese, and other races have been enslaved too - it was wrong for every one of them.
I believe a self-righteous liberal Democrat with a cause is more dangerous that a Hell's Angel with an attitude. I want to know exactly which church it is where the 'Reverend' Jessie Jackson preaches; and, what exactly is his job function. I own a gun, you can own a gun, and any red blooded American should be allowed to own a gun, but if you use it in a crime, then you will serve the time.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it makes you mad, then invent the next operating system that's better and put your name on the building. Ask your buddy that invented the internet to help you.
I don't believe in hate crime legislation. Even suggesting it makes me mad. You're telling me that someone who is a minority, gay, disabled, another nationality, or otherwise different from the mainstream of this country has more value as a human being than I do as a white male. If someone kills anyone, I'd say that it's a hate crime. We don't need more laws! Let's enforce the ones we already have.
I think turkey bacon, turkey beef, turkey fake anything sucks. I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child - it takes a parent with the guts to stand up to the kid and spank his butt and say 'NO!' when it's necessary to do so. I'll admit that the only movie that ever made me cry was Ole Yeller. I didn't realize that Dr. Seuss was a genius until I had a kid.
I will not be frowned upon or be looked down upon or be made to keep silent because I have these beliefs and opinions. I thought this country allowed me that right. I will not conform or compromise just to keep from hurting somebody's feelings. I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise. Yes, I guess by some people's definition, I may be a bad American. But that's tough.
About me:I am fun loving and friendly. I am a people person, I like to be out and about, and it usually doesn't matter what I doing. I hate humidity, but heat isn't a problem. I love to walk, but detest hiking. I love camping and fishing, and if there is water around it is hard to keep me out of it. I love watching car racing of all types, monster truck rallies and mud bogs are a blast, and I am a huge football fan. I do genealogy research too.
A glimpse of what goes through my head:
I love to have a good time, but that doesn't mean at the expense of others.
I think that the vast majority of people on the internet pretend to be a version of themselves that they would not let out in public, and there is probably a good reason for that.
I think that maturity does not mean you aren't capable of having fun, or that you are old. Only wiser than two-thirds of the population, and have discovered what real fun truly is.
I think that maturity escapes a lot of people, much like true intelligence.
I think that my delete key may very well be the most useful key on my keyboard.
I think that a comment posted on the internet is a window to your soul, you intelligence level, your maturity, or in many cases, your lack thereof.
I think that most of your issues are probably self-inflicted.
I think that children under the age of five can teach an more than we will every teach them in a life time, if we listen.
I don't think prisoners should have cable TV if most of us can't afford it, and if a prisoner can put porn up on the wall of his cell, I should be able to put a comic up on the wall of my cubicle at work.
I think that people on a power trip are insecure, and I love to fuck with their minds. To protect themselves, they should get over themselves. The rest of us already have.
I am not go going to blow sunshine up my ass, or yours. Get real.
I believe that you reap what you sow, life is what you make of it, and the response you get from others is dependent on how you presented yourself.
I think that all automated phone systems is the United States should sound like this: "for English, press 1, for any other language, hang up until you have learned to speak English".
I think that people should strive to have an IQ higher than their shoe size, but have seen little evidence that they do.
I feel that if other people's children choose not to wear seat belts, or helmets when on motorcycles, that it is population control, and that the gene pool won't miss them.
I don't think Windows invented multi-tasking, motherhood did.
I feel people are over-medicated, and under sexed.
I think pets are part of the family, but if you dress them up you need to seek mental help, and that you should be put on the PETA watch list.
I do not have to play well with others. That is not my job.
Respect is earned, and will only be given when you have earned it. It is harder to earn than it is to loose.
When raising a child using the phrase "are you new here?" is completely acceptable.
If you don't know what a "three-legged race to the hospital" is, you haven't met my father.
In life, common sense will get you farther than "book smarts", but if you have an ounce of intelligence you will do your best to make sure you have a fair amount of both.
The turn signals on your car are not there because they are pretty. They are there for your safety. Use them.
If you bought your last car because there was a vanity mirror on the drivers side too, I will pray for you.
I think that there is a waitress in England who still curses the day she met me. She refused to serve me, in her subtle British way. I told her "We won the Revolutionary War. Get over it!", in my bold, take no shit, American way. (Thank God, they are not all like her!)
Jack Daniels is not sippin' whiskey.
Every time my in-laws visit I get to run around the house yelling "The British are coming!"
I am pretty sure my ten year old is smarter than most politicians, and has been for several years.
I think most parents aren't parents anymore. Only slaves to their child's lifestyle, and don't realize that they made them that way.
I don't think there is enough coffee in the world on Monday mornings.
I don't think diet should ever receive the same reverence as religion, and I don't think religion was invented by God.
I think zealots in regard to any topic are gross.
I don't think kids are allowed to be kids anymore.
Alcohol is truth serum.
Once you have children, pets that you have had for years prior to their birth, will develop opposable thumbs, and color on you walls just to get your children in trouble.
I do not have friends. I have family. Once you are in, there is no getting out.
Don't shit where you eat.
Embarrassment does not kill you, but it can induce a move to another state.
It isn't a joke until someone else laughs.
I want the instructions on my laser printer at work to tell me how I can set it to stun.
I don't care how it was done where you came from. You are here now, and if you don't like our laws, our humanity, or the things that are now part of our culture, you can leave on transportation apparatus you arrive on.
To all those who have every thought of inflicting pain on me, I say pack a lunch and don't threaten me with a good time.
Your words are your best weapon. Use you big words and choose them wisely.
I can not stand people who have something stuck so far up their ass a tractor couldn't pull it out.
Ignorance may be bliss for you, but for the rest of us it is a source of massive amusement. I can assure you we aren't laughing with you.
