Peace And Prosperity
Peace, prosperity and good news does not sell papers or boost news ratings. To make money, the media constantly shouts fire when there is no smoke; truth, integrity and the national welfare be damned. --- William Fortner 2006 ---
I've been in the Navy all me bloomin' life! Me Mother was a mermaid, me father was King Neptune. I was born on the crest of a wave and rocked in the cradle of the deep. Seaweed and barnacles are me clothes. Every tooth in me head is a marlinspike; the hair on me head is hemp. Every bone in me body is a spar, and when I spits, I spits tar! I'se hard, I is, I am, I are!
I am an unrepentant independent conservative and a 30-year Navy veteran with little civilian experience thus unable to suffer fools graciously. I am a member of PETA [People Eating Tasty Animals], Southern Division, Beef Battalion, Prime Rib Brigade, Platoon Rare, Squad Au Jus and Horseradish (on the side).
