About Me I grew up in Hawaii and wish I was back there. I am disabled so I'm on the computer often. I am known for speaking my mind. I'm long winded because I want to be thorough. I'm honest to a T. I don't lie and I can't stand to be lied to. If I see someone who is beautiful or has beautiful eyes, I tell them because we never hear enough compliments. I'm happily married to a beautiful woman that I stole from Las Vegas. She says I rescued her. That is one of the most romantic stories you've ever heard. I'm a good listener and always ready to lend an ear or suggestions to any friend. I don't like Obama nor anything he has done to this country, because of the man that he is. Race, skin color, has no affect on me. Honesty and integrity means much more to me than failure. We learn from failure. We fail if we lack honesty and integrity. Sadly, Obama is neither. He's deceitful, a liar, and he has more interest in himself than he does the country or her people. For this reason, we should do all we can to expose him for what and who he truly is.

Wild Fact About Me I never dated my wife, a very interesting story!
My Philosophy "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I believe in helping people to become self sufficient. I don't have much patience for those who prefer to be handed everything in life. This in my opinion, is a major difference between liberals and conservative. I believe in working and earning your way. I believe in helping those who need a helping hand. I'll give them the shirt off my back and the last dollar I have. But for those who are professional welfare people, or people who sit back and just take as much as they can, I have no desire to assist them in their way of life. The gov't is already there to do that for them with my tax dollars. I don't believe in being prejudiced, white, black, red, yellow, brown, Marine Corps green, I don't care what color a person is. But if they think their race is better than another, then I want nothing to do with them. There's enough idiots in the world who can find friends who think like them. I've dated all kinds of women of different races and loved them all for who they were. I do not believe in reparations for anyone. What's in the past is in the past. When someone tells me what some white men did back then, I tell them a lot of good white men died trying to do what's right for all. You can't give more than a life to help those who are oppressed.
What Gives Me Hope My faith in God, my wife and my children.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by If I were President, my main goal would be to change our tax system. I would gather financial experts to get together and brainstorm the best program for our country and then get it implemented. I would concentrate on our own country for awhile. I would freeze all immigration, with the exception of family, until Americans had the jobs they need. Once unemployment is at or below 5%, we would once again welcome immigrants. I would send the illegal people home except for those who can prove 5 straight years at the same job via legal tax returns. If they paid their taxes, we should let them stay. I would cancel Obama's healthcare mess and remove the border restriction for insurance companies to promote competition, give $5000 tax credit per working adult towards insurance premiums so those who are poor could afford medical insurance. I would stop ridiculous law suits against doctors and cap all rewards to what was lost plus a fixed amount for pain & suffering. I would cut the budget with 50% as my goal, by getting rid of funding things the federal gov't should not be funding, such as "The Arts", PBS, frog humping, etc. I would end taxes on businesses to encourage all businesses to come back to America. I would lower income tax to benefit the economy and I would make it law that the gov't balance the budget every year. I would make it law there be an audit every year, by an independent contractor. Anyone receiving gov't funds would be held accountable for every penny and any funds used for bigwig trips will be refunded. Senators will be on a budget and no longer allowed to spend $1000 a night for a hotel unless they use their own money. Pelosi would lose "her" plane immediately!!! Congress would no longer be allowed full salary retirement and neither would the President.
I would end political correctness and encourage people to stop hyphenations and to be Americans. I would bring back tolerance and respect for one's religion and traditions. I would finish the war in Afghanistan by telling my Generals when they had to be finished and let them map our their military plan, then give them what they need to meet their goal.
On the home front I would make welfare and foodstamp recipients pass a drug test before giving them anything. Anyone not passing will have the children put elsewhere until they can clean up and support them properly. People on welfare would alternate between day care sitting and working for the govt by picking up trash along the streets and highways, answering the phone in govt buildings, filing, typing or at least attending some form of education that will result in a job.
I would appoint judges who believe in the constitution, who know it is not their place to make laws, and those who know to leave personal feelings out of their decisions. I would do everything in my power to get the Supreme Court to reverse its decision on what constitutes separation of church and state vs what the Constitution states, "Congress shall make no laws ..." The idea was to keep govt out of religion, not religion out of govt! PERIOD. We are a Christian nation that was built upon Christian principles. Those who are not Christian simply need to get over it.
I believe that atheism is a form of religion. They are a group of people who believe God does not exist and as a group, they do everything to silence those who do believe in God. Whey they sue to have prayer stopped in school, in the military or on any public or govt owned property, or when they demand a nativity scene be removed, or a cross removed from cemetery, then they win. Why should they get their way for their beliefs, but people of faith cannot? It's DISCRIMINATION! And if I were in high power, I would put an end to it and tell those people to look up the word tolerate and then tell them DON'T LOOK AT IT (the cross, nativity, etc)!
I would not force my religion on anyone. By the same token, no one will force me when and where I can or cannot pray!
There's more, but I'll stop there.
What/who changed my life and why The Christian Bible, the Founding Fathers for the United States, my father, my mother, my beautiful bride.
