If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

Know Your Medal of Honor Recipients:

First Sergeant Henry Newman (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on July 13, 1872, at Whetstone Mountains, Arizona. His citation reads:

Private Marcellus J. Newman (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on May 14, 1864, at Resaca, Georgia. His citation reads:

Lieutenant William H. Newman (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on April 6, 1865, at near Amelia Springs, Virginia. His citation reads:

We at I'm just sayin... hope all of you out there have a wonderful (and safe) New Years Eve! Go out and party like my friend Cory at the lake house (hard, but safe).

Sometimes life is all about picking your battles... Keeping her daughter from laying down on the floor during the Christmas Eve service is a battle my good friend (and past I'm just sayin... Fan of the Year Ashley decided not to pick
