Since my Blog still has the new car smell, I want to give you a little background noise about myself. This way when I get off on a future tangent you’ll know (possibly) where I am coming from. I think that’s important because we all come at life from different directions and we all have our own reality.
As I have already mentioned I’m an (almost) 40 married white boy with 2 crumb snatchers and a cat that owes me big time. I’m actually a dog guy but don’t have the patience to raise a third kid. I’m a professional firefighter in the Philly F.D. I am a Captain (Middle Management, GASP!) which means I get shit on from above and talked about from below.
I am a U.S. Army vet, (Cold War) discharged in 1989. I served in tanks and still have a fondness and deep respect for our armed forces. My brother-in-law is a NAVY pilot. While in the service I was sent to Germany where I met my wife. (Couldn’t score an American babe) When she came here to the states I duped her and we got married. We had to go through the immigration process, LEGALLY. I am a gun owner, (Have you looked outside lately?) NRA member, and a pissed off Irish Catholic (ANOTHER GASP).
I think we should not only build a wall on the southern border, we should lay mines in front of it. (No sense making it easy to scale) I actually saw the Berlin Wall. I can tell you first hand it DID exist. Those crazy bastards actually cut a city in half with a WALL! Guess what- IT WORKED! I went through Checkpoint Charlie and still have the orders to prove it. In 40+ years only a handful of people made it over and didn’t get caught.
I think our national food should be the cheesteak. I advise anyone stopping by Philly to go see Joey Vento at GENO’s steaks in South Philly for a proper steak sandwich. Plus Joey in known in the neighborhood to be a stand up guy. KNOWHATIMEAN?
As for education, I have a minor degree in Criminal Justice and enough credits to have my other degree twice over. One of these days I’ll finish school, maybe. I’m a conservative Republican but that doesn’t mean I’m unreasonable. That would make me a Democrat. For example who would turn down a tag team with Anne Coulter and Michelle Malkin?? Honestly, anybody?? Thought not. Oh yeah I am absolutely from the Howard Stern school of comedy. After 15 years in the firehouse you get some pretty thick skin. I think just about everything has some humor in it. If your easily offended this probably ain’t the Blog for you. I won’t go out of my way to offend anyone, except fags, but if opportunity presents itself… ITS ON!! And I absolutely believe in sarcasm. So when your reading my nonsense, keep in mind that I ‘m probably in need of some type of therapy. Just laugh quietly from a distance but please don’t point. Pointing is still rude.

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

You dropped a bomb on me...baby!
NEVER FORGET 9-11
Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
