If there is one principle more deeply rooted in the mind of every American, it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest.

Me, circa 1993

This is a picture of me from 1993 (yes Virginia, I really did play that guitar - until an unfortunate miter saw accident). I'm a native Californian, and was born at an early age.

Sure, I look like I might be a redneck, but how could I prove it? I've never gone to a family reunion in order to pick up women, and I've never been too drunk to fish, and I've never taken a beer to a job interview.

I like what is referred to as traditional country music (no brass instruments and none of that cross-over crap). Well, there is one exception to the brass instrments thing - Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash (RIP).
