Your Humble Potentate of Profundity

The ABC’s of Me

Aficionado of good books, well written movies and television, history, college & pro sports of all kinds, fine food, and music of many genres

Blue is my favorite color, followed very closely by purple

Conservative…I believe in smaller government, lower taxes, and The Constitution…I am a pro-life, pro-gun, capitalist…I am an avid listener but not a blind follower of Rush Limbaugh & Sean Hannity…I believe that freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion, environmentalism is overblown poppycock, animals are wonderful but some of them were put on Earth for us to shoot and eat, marriage should be between one man and one woman, immigrants are welcome in this nation only if they do things the right & legal
way, and political correctness is ruining America

Dog lover…I am the proud “Daddy” to a pug named Rocco who is my best little buddy

Eclectic in many ways, from my taste in music to my clothing style to my sense of humor and many
other facets of my complex personality

Facebook addict!!

Grew up partly in the 70’s, mostly in the 80’s, and then entered adulthood thru the prism of the 90’s…these different eras and my exposure to them have colored my perspective of the world in a uniquely personal way

Honesty truly is a lonely word, but integrity…my word and the good reputation of my family…
is important to me

Italian-American and proud of my heritage

Jesus said “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3), “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6), and “this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent” (John 17:3).

Knowledge is power

Love to laugh and have a good time

Marshall University alumnus, Class of 1994 – Go Herd!!

Nocturnal…I work midnight shifts and have always been a night owl…I feel most energetic and
creative late at night

Opinionated, as any reader of The Manofesto will quickly find out…but I am respectful of others’ opinions so long they have some basis in intelligent and thoughtful contemplation…stupidity annoys me tremendously

Paraplegic…born with spina bifida…my disability does not define me but is an undeniable part of me

Quiet, even though the things you read may make that difficult to imagine

Reliable…I may not always be the smartest or the most talented person in the room, but I will be there on time, do what I say I am going to do to the best of my ability, put in an honest effort, and be someone you can count on whether it be as a friend, co-worker, laborer in the church, or whatever the case may be…I expect the same out of others but am all too often disappointed

Sports nut…I am a huge fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, West Virginia Mountaineers, and of course my alma mater’s Thundering Herd. I actually love to watch golf on television and have become a fan of Phil Mickelson…can’t really get into soccer, tennis, or boxing…the NBA is okay though I don’t really have a favorite team, and hockey has grown on me the last few years…I am an avid follower of Nascar and cheer for Tony Stewart and whomever defeats pretty boys like Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon (I grew up loving Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt…wanted to root  Dale Jr. but he sold out and hasn’t really lived up to the hype anyway)

Technologically challenged…if it needs hooked up, torn apart, or repaired there are people for that, and I will gladly compensate them for their time and skill…I laugh at people who ask me, quite seriously, if I am “into computers” – I know how to turn one on and surf The Net and that’s pretty much it

Unattached and finally at peace with the likelihood that things are unlikely to ever change

Vive bene, spesso l’amore, di risata molto

Writer wannabe, meaning I would like for this to be my living and not meaning that I don’t consider myself a writer already to a certain extent

X-Y-Z…Oh come on – who could come up with anything good with these three letters?? I’m not too zealous or all that zany. I don’t yodel and yellow isn’t my favorite color. I don’t play the xylophone and I’m not a xenophobe. I have had x-rays…but really, who cares?? I know who Yasmine Bleeth is, but she is pretty irrelevant. My name is Sam, but it’s not preceded by Yosemite. I’ve never been to a zoo or taken a Xanax.

  1. Congratulations on having 1 of the most sophisticated blogs Ive come across in some time! Its just incredible how a lot you can take away from something simply because of how visually beautiful it is. Youve put together a fantastic blog space –great graphics, videos, layout. This is undoubtedly a must-see weblog!

  2. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
