Looks like a good ol boy.
you remember the pic he had taken back a couple of years ago. he was doing the kosak (yeah what ever on the sp crap) thing.. and was horse back with what looked like a serious blade.. Ya have to give him credit, and i think we all sorta wish our guy had a bit more "stuff"
now everyone hide the pics from ebear or he's going to go all ruskie on us...
later guys ..food time.
and the Russkie horse he rode in on,potato squeezer
a sixth degree black belt in Judo. Teddy Roosevelt was a second degree.
I'm not positive on this, but while some of our Presidents have been in the shit, Don't think any but old Andy Jackson, and Teddy, have been life takers.. Yep Truaman had an arty co in WWI, and of course Kennedy was shot up on the patrol boat.. Johson got a silver star in WWII, Don't know how much action Grant had.. but pretty sure out of old Andy Jackson, think the only other life taker was Teddy. That whole charge up San Juan hill was for real.. CQB.. US president 1.. Puerto Ricons minus big numbers.. Besides that i've been reading how he had a hand in designing the 03 Springfield..This is really cool.. seems they sent the original to the Army for evaluation, and Teddy himself made two changes in it... one was to get rid of the rod bayo, and put on a bayo lug...Not sure what the other was... But think about it.. One of our Presidents made changes to a world class piece..
I can just see Obarry doing that.. Wow some of that old stuff must be kicking in...
that James Monroe was wounded in battle and James Buchanan was a private in a light dragoon company, so I'm pretty sure one or the other of those guys would have at least shot back. I don't know. But I think most would agree that Andrew Jackso was probably the most violent of the Presidents. And maybe if Alexander Hamilton had been a better shot, he'd be on the cool-guy list too.
While I was looking around, I saw a painting of George Washington and I had to stop. I wonder what he sounded like. And I wonder what it was like being involved in the debates and arguments and compromises while the Declaration of Independence and later the Articles of Confederation and Constitution were being drafted. I'm working, little by little, on reading The Federalist, and it seems pretty obvious that for the authors, at least, the importance of what had been done and what they were trying to do was understood. But I wonder if the founding fathers really knew what they were setting in motion when they announced the dissolution of ties with England.
Yeah if you really think about it, it blows your mind what those guys did and that our constitution is the oldest active constution in the world speaks volumes, never thought I would see the day when our POTUS would try to rewrite so blantantly, the brave men who created,debated, and eventually hammered out an agreement in philadelpia(sp?) are spinning in the grave, as far as Jackson, the man lived with a bullet lodged in his chest! Thats badass!
