On the other hand, I get to play with some pretty cool toys...
yeah I'm sure I was in the Navy and was planning on making it my career when Mr. Clinton forced me out. Now that I'm a fireman/paramedic I only get to do half of you job . . . they get upset when I kill people. and I dont even get to do it "for global peace". When I retire I'm thinking of moving to Texas, I'll do the executions for free

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

I don't think people should be rescued when they fall through thin ice, it's called natural selection.

10. What would you consider your personality? (outgoing, shy, bubbly, etc.)
in general I'm introverted but I will talk to people I don't know; I'm also very stubborn
11. Do you believe in global warming?
Yes and no. Is the globe warming? Most likely. Is it anything we did, and can we stop it? Global warming and cooling is a periodic process that has happened more than once over the earth's history. We may have sped the timetable up on this current warming phase, but we didn't start it and neither can we stop it. Until a catastrophic atmospheric event occurs (large meteor impact, massive volcanic eruptions, anything that fills the atmosphere with solar-blocking material) that will reverse the process slowing it down is about all one can hope to do.
12. Tell us something about yourself that we'd never guess.
I ran for a legislative position in VA in 2005 and am running for a county elected position this year.
