I don't know why. I don't know what for. I'm probably the guy who shouldn't be allowed one.

Happy Birthday, Duke!
Today would have been John Wayne's 100th birthday. A century later, he's still got unbelievable charisma and staying power. I'm still a huge, huge fan. The man was one of the originators of cool. The embodiment of the warrior spirit. A man's man. Would that I could have met him. There's not much about John Wayne that hasn't already been said, so I won't blather on about it with stuff that's already been covered. I will quote a line from one of my favorite Duke movies, The Quiet Man. I love this line because it encompasses how the Duke lived his life, standing up for what he believed in. As Sean Thornton, former boxer who killed a man in the ring, who's moved back to his ancestral home in Ireland:
'If you say "three," mister, you'll never hear the man count "ten." '
Who is this guy, and who let him have a blog? They gotta police these things better. Hmmmm...what about me, then? Here's a few tidbits:
I'm a Christian.
I work for ATS Tactical Gear in Oak Grove KY as a multi-manager.
I got my BS (so very appropriate) in Business Management in Dec. of 2007.
I'm a shooter, gun collector, knife kook, and pretty much find anything that shoots, goes bang, or explodes pretty interesting. I'm especially fond of full auto weapons with supressors, which are legal in KY. Yes, I realize that quiet firearms and the love of BANG! makes a contradiction, but that's how it is.
I'm an NRA supporter in general and a supporter of the 2nd Amendment in particular. The Constitution is second only to the Bible in importance.
I'm a Conservative that more often than not holds his nose and votes Republican.
I like loud stuff. Movies, music, cannons...whatever ya got.
I like comments on my Blog. Comment as much as you like! Unless you really offend me (and I get the last word, so that's not easy to do), I'll publish them all. I'll also have the last word. ;) That holds true unless the post is Anonymous. Most of them don't make it. Own your words.
