Married, 3 kids
Last week I had the distinct honor of witnessing the graduation of my nephew from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was quite a experience to see all the grads dressed in their formal attire on that hot summer-like day. It made me proud to see him and his classmates accepting the charge to "protect and defend the constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic". They were all quite honored by the fact that their commencement speaker was Vice President Dick Cheney. He had quite a speech and considering the crowd it was well received. I heard of only a couple of protestors who had the audacity of putting up signs saying "Weapons of Mass Destruction" with arrows pointing towards where the graduation was being held. Oh well a couple of wackos did nothing to destroy the great feelings of patriotism and pride for all of the young men and women who made the choice to serve bravely for all of us........ even the wackos.

Baby has arrived!!!!!
Nathaniel Jacob was born on February 10 at 5:20 PM. He weighed 8lbs. 4oz. and was 20" long. We're really tired yet, he hasn't quite figured the differance between night and day yet, but it'll get better.
No Baby Yet.
Still waiting. Our due date isn't until the 15th, but my wife is really ready to have the little dude out of her. I told she had to wait until after Superbowl Sunday now (only half kidding). We'll see what happens. Go Patriots!!!!!
Yes I'm still here
Yes it's true I am still alive. I have been working fast a furiously trying to get the room upstairs for our two older boys ready so we can make room on the main floor for the new bundle of joy that we are expecting soon. So be patient I'll be back.
The Real Thanksgiving
I heard this on Rush's show yesterday and found it very interesting. The pilgrims originally were supposed to run the new country as a sort of Socialized commune where everyone would work together and each would get a share of the results of their labor.
The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant-sponsors in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store, and each member of the community was entitled to one common share. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belong to the community as well.
Already back then the Pilgrims realized that Socialism would not work and they rejected the orders given them by the merchant-sponsors.
[William] Bradford assigned a plot of land to each family to work and manage, thus turning loose the power of the marketplace.
I find it interesting that the idea of Socialism was rejected so early in the history of this great country. Unfortunately this is not taught in our schools anywhere.
