Well, Iâ€ve been posting here for almost 4 years, and Iâ€ve done this at least twice before, but Iâ€ll play again.
I turned 33 on the 15th of March. Iâ€ve been married for almost 9 years and have two Kids that are smarter, faster, stronger etc. than anyone elseâ€s kids. They are a 5year old boy and a 4-year-old girl. Iâ€m the manager of a CAD department in a fire sprinkler company. I also work for myself doing construction related design at home. Eventually I will get enough business at home to incorporate and start my own company.
I am conservative in most ways, although I think the illegality of Marijuana is ridiculous since we allow people to smoke and drink alcohol. Iâ€m not a religious person though I like to think that I am spiritual. I do what is right because itâ€s right not for fear of retribution from a higher power. I think abortion is despicable. I believe there are cases that warrant the death penalty. I think Terri Schiavo should be given food and water and if she isnâ€t it will be murder. I believe in the unrestricted right of American Citizens to purchase own and bear arms. I think the federal Government should stay out of local politics unless it is to protect the people from the local or foreign governments.
I am a soldier in the Army National Guard. I have trained to defend my country and itâ€s interests for over 15 years and will continue to do so until am no longer able to. I believe that we are the most prosperous country in the world because we are able to and do project influence through strength through out the world. I do not believe we should act with disregard to the rest of the world nor should we isolate ourselves if we desire to be the power we are today.
I came up with my name when I was registering at one of the online clubs years ago. I wanted DezertRat, because it is a common term for someone from the area I live in. It was taken so I just started plugging in different animals and spellings until one was taken. Iâ€ve used it and DezertRed since.
Iâ€ started playing Axis and allies shortly after it came out in the mid eighties, when I was in Jr. high/high school. I stopped playing after college for lack of players. I started trying to find local people to play on line four years ago, and almost immediately found enough local guys to start a group and I have been playing different versions since. I consider myself a good strategist in general whether it is paintball, hunting or Hearts of Iron, though people on line and occasionally on a board have spanked me in A&A.
Iâ€ll stop now so I can save some for the autobiography.
