I'm just an American born citizen that believes we need to get back to the basic principles that our founding fathers had intended when they formed our country's constitution. I believe in all the freedoms that are granted to us all in that constitution. I believe that all men are created equal. I believe in our right to state our opinions even if it differs from that of those around us. I believe in freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, as well as all the other freedoms we used to think were here to stay. But given the direction this once great nation of ours is heading, I am convinced those very freedoms that we once took for granted are being slowly taken away from us, one by one. I feel it incumbent upon each and every one of us that feel this way to do whatever it takes to remind our nation's appointed leaders as well as our federal and state governments that this erosion of those liberties will not be tolerated. We are headed to a state of chaos, where we will have little or no say as to the substance of our daily lives. We are being goaded into an environment of hate and prejudice that could possibly turn good friends into mortal enemies. Our economy is being turned into a financial chess piece, with each move bringing us closer to economic collapse. I'm not very religious but was raised in a religious household as a child and I know enough to know from what I am seeing take place before my very eyes, that we are heading into a nightmare of biblical proportions. One things for sure, if we just sit around and allow what is taking place to continue we will all suffer at the hands of those whose only desire is to make this kind of tragedy a reality.

I spend a lot of my time reading, watching the news (I like to keep up on current events that affect my city as well as my country and the world), and the great outdoors. Even more of my time is spent going to music venues and night clubs and photographing bands as they perform on stage. I am way into photography. I enjoy taking pics of just about anything and everything. Other than that I just like spending time with my friends and enjoying life.
I love music, art, photography and spending time with friends and discussing life, love and the pursuit of whatever dreams and ideals we each hold dear.
I have several different likes when it comes to music. One day I might be listening to Beethoven, Shostakovitch or Wagner and the next I might be inclined to jam on some Stones, Godsmack or Ozzie. Still, other times I might want to relax with some Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn or even some Harry Connick Jr. Guess it just depends on the mood I'm in, or the mood I want to be in.
Favorite TV Shows
I really don't have taste for reality tv, or sitcoms. Haven't found too many that I enjoy. I am a big fan of old shows like Perry Mason, The Untouchables, Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and also of several current shows as police or politically themed programs. Law & Order, Rizzoli and Isles, CSI Miami and Matlock... just to name a couple.
My fave movie genre would have to be horror, with action/adventure a close second. I also like Sci-Fi to a lesser extent, and an occasional comedy is not entirely out of the question. Some of my fave movies of all time include: Jaws, Bonnie & Clyde, Scarface, Apocalypse Now, Dracula (1931), Casablanca, Easy Rider, King Kong, The Exorcist, St Valentines Day Massacre, Giant, Rebel Without A Cause, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, The Godfather movies, Alien, American Graffiti, Queen of The Damned, Andromeda Strain, the Star Trek movies, Hart's War, Platoon, Predator, Them!, A Clockwork Orange, Close Encounters of The Third kind, E.T., Cool Hand Luke, Frankenstein (1931), GoodFellas, Invasion of The Body Snatchers, The Manchurian Candidate, Public Enemies, Quarantine, Night of The Living Dead, Romeo and Juliet, Rosemary's Baby, The Omen movies, Silence of The Lambs, The Terminator, 12 Angry Men, And Justice For All, The Birds, Deliverance, Smokey and The Bandit, Full Metal Jacket, Steal This Movie, Glory, Halloween, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, JFK, L.A. Confidential, The Matrix, Poltergeist, The Big Red One, Saving private Ryan, The Shining, Spartacus, Thelma and Louise, Gangs of New York, and Sleeping Beauty.

I have had but two true heroes in my life, and that is my father, who passed away in 1999, and my mother, who passed away in 2006. But to this day, their spirits still linger, watching over me and giving me a little nudge when I begin to wander in a wrong direction...
