I am a software developer, tester, and computer manager with over thirty years experience in business and aerospace software projects, with a bachelor's in math and a minor in logic. I have also been responsible for end-user support and documentation in several positions. Currently I am the sole developer of some two thousand custom software modules specific to my employer's manufacturing market, and often use the Internet for research in computer support and security issues.
Graduating from college in January 1968, I enlisted in the US Navy to avoid being drafted. I was blessed with the beginning of a computer career at two Navy schools, with two more years of shore duty in Hawaii, and one final year aboard the USS Constellation serving in Vietnam. Ever since then I have tried to appreciate what real combat military and their families endure in order to keep the rest of us secure in Liberty.
Since 1994 I have been a self-educated student of the Bible, outside the influence of self-promoting teachers. I have studied most all chapters of the Bible in two or three modern editions, and experienced the reality of how God's Word responds to belief in extraordinary ways, involving perhaps forty of the Bible's sixty-six books. One of the proofs of the Bible’s authenticity is also one of the Messiah’s new teachings: that God may directly use His Word to guide and inspire those who believe Him, without need of human special teachers.
Nor are you to be called 'teacher,' for you have one Teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you will be your servant. For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” Matthew 23:10-12, New International Version
Aside from computers, software, and the Bible my interests include Internet computer gaming; American History from before the Revolution to the Vietnam War, embracing the Declaration of Independence, the Federalist Papers, the United States Constitution, the Gettysburg Address, and the personal responsibility not only to represent neighbors as we would ourselves, but to keep and bear arms as government of, by, and for the people.
Looking for reasons to be on with what I seem to be called to do, I found abortion statistics that some 1,370,000 babies are aborted in this "free" country every year here: Abortion Statistics. Looking further to see what authority this website has, I found something even more concrete and horrible. Their campaign to convince the Home of the Free and the Brave how horrible we are to the unborn, with graphical pictures of the unborn being murdered. These signs are among the more tolerable, about the calling of every Christian who knows Christ is real.Would Jesus use bloody signs to make his point? My only additional question is: We ask our best to pay the cost of our Freedom. Is this the Freedom we want them to pay for?
