I live above the Sequatchi Valley on the Cumberland Plateau (Cumberland Mtns.) I live very near where Sgt. Alvin York was born, raised and lived all his life. I lve it here.
I am a staunch advocate for the 2nd Amendment, as well as liberties. I am a avid shooter and have been referred to by some as a "wacked out survivalist." I am extremely proud of my Southern heritage and family history as well as the rich history of the area in which I live.
I am a Life Member of both the National Rifle Association as well as the Gun Owners Of America. I will add that I am more active in the G.O.A. because they do not kiss butt and compromise liberty and freedom as the NRA has been known to do in the past.
My wife tells me that I am not as romantic as I used to be and that I have a sarcastic sence of humor (I love her anyway.) She says that she "puts up with me." She is under the impression that I love my 73 Monte Carlo , my truck and my guns more than I do her. ( I told her that I would have to think about it, and get back with her latter on that one.)
In A nut shell: I am pro gun, pro Bill of Rights, I love my heritage, I love history (Civil Was era,) and I love my wife and family. I hate the United Nations, I refer to Democrats as "socialist pigs," I hate the ACLU, etc. I beleive in equal opportunity rather than "equality " because true "equallity " is communism. I am NOT for gay rights, I think Jackson and Sharpton are a disgrace to their race, and I have the cutest damn puppies that you have ever seen in your life.
My ideal woman is Salma Hayak (well dressed and sweaty) in the movie "Desperado," as well as Paz Vega in "Spanglish."........I was cool once !! (had long hair and played guitar when I was younger,) and I love to cook on the grill all year round. I camp outside in the winter time on occation , and I think that damn PETA organization pretty much sucks. I recently realized that "damn yankee" was actually two words recently, ....and (did I mention that I make AWESOME beef jerkey ?)
I hope that Fred Thompson is the next president (or Ted Nugent,) and I would would like to see Hillary Clinton be man enough to come out of the closet.
Well,.....that pretty much covers the basics of it right there.
Guns cause crime like flies cause garbage.

--- Some of the friendliest people I have ever talked to are gun owners and shooters and according to the gun activists we are the mass murders and felons of the nation???
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
