As a self-proclaimed repository keg of opinion, I am enthralled with the sport and entertainment value of a lively debate.  On occassion, I have been known to say things that I don’t necessarily believe in just to spark some lively conversation.  I am sometimes wrong, but often times correct as long as I have correct data at my disposal (something that President George W. Bush is probably able to emphathize with).

At the top of my priority list are my children, my wife, my family, and my other extracurricular relationships with friends and colleagues.  I have always prided myself on being loyal, which is something that I take great pride in.  I personally feel that once you have me as a friend you’ll have me as a friend for life.

At the top of my entertainment list is: sports (big fan of Notre Dame Football, the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Hoosiers, Cincinnati Reds, and [on occassion…when they’re not pissing me off] the Indiana Pacers), officiating sporting events, politics, watching movies by myself, golf, fishing, camping, hiking, playing with my sons (and wife), and reading a good book…oh, and long walks on the beach, too.

I have no appologies for who I am or what I say.  I do engage in efforts to better myself by setting goals that I actually strive to achieve.  I’m not perfect, nor do I pretend to be.  I don’t know everything, nor do I pretend to.  If you’re mentally unstable enough to get offended by what someone else says about you or the things you believe in then you have no business stepping outside the door of your house, logging on to the internet, or engaging in conversation with anyone who possesses a pulse, opposable thumbs, or can walk up-right.  I don’t believe I’ll ever give the power to “make me feel a certain way” to anyone other than myself or those immediately close to me.  I pitty the offended.  I don’t understand them.

So, if I tell a joke about homosexuality and you happen to be a homosexual…get over it.  If I say something about Mormonism and you happen to be a Mormon…get over it.  If I state an opinion about a minority group that you happen to be a statistical member of…get over it.  If you say something about me…I’ll come at you like a Spider-Monkey hopped-up on Mountain Dew!!!

Bottom line…life is good as long as you allow it to be.

    It will be your fault if you read my opinions and become offended. It will be your fault if you submit a comment that portrays you as a wee-minded mongoloid. It will be your fault if Hillary Clinton becomes our next president! Don’t be that person…don’t ever be THAT person, okay? We have a deal, or what?

    I’m just a normal dude with a normal life using normal means to present my sometimes weird-like opinions and comments about the world, events, politics, sports, etc…

    I’m open to debate anything and actually look for excuses to change my opinion on matters if the argument against my opinion is well-written and articulated. I don’t pretend to know it all, but I’m sure it may seem to some that I act as such. If opinions were pennies then I’d be a single share-holder of Berthshire Hathaway!
