I am a tenth-generation, Christian, Capitalist, Conservative American who believes firmly in small government, low taxes, self-reliance and a strict interpretation of the United States Constitution... (just like ALL of our Founding Fathers, I'm very proud to say!) -
In regards to my lineage, I'm 3/4 German and 1/4 Scots-Irish... which means I'm 100% Viking, since the Vikings settled Scotland and the early Germans (the Germanic people) were definitely of Nordic / Viking decent. So I guess that makes me a real, live, Viking American. Oddly enough, the only time I ever had a "reading" done, which was before I did my genealogy, I was told that I was a Viking Warrior in an earlier life. Go figure. I dismissed it as a feeble attempt to stroke my ego and extract money from my pocket. But who knows... some people do have psychic abilities. Regardless, I am not planning a Viking burial at sea in a burning boat just yet.

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure.... the creed of ignorance.... and the gospel of envy."
Chuck Ealey, B 1950 - currently living in Toronto after his amazing pro football career in the CFL.
From 1964 to 1967, Ealey played for Notre Dame High School under Ohio High School Football Coaches Association Hall of Famer, Ed Miller. In 1967, under his leadership, Notre Dame captured its first Ohio High School Athletic Association state championship. Ealey was lightly recruited despite finishing his high school career at with a 30-0 record. He was offered a football scholarship to Miami University with then Coach Bo Schembechler to be the team's third string quarterback, but Ealey refused. He was then offered a scholarship to the University of Toledo to start as first string quarterback, which he accepted and would lead Toledo to 35 consecutive wins in a three year span from 1969-1971, an NCAA record that still stands, ranking ahead of players such as the University of Miami's Ken Dorsey and USC's Matt Leinart. ~~ PS: I could have played with Chuck Ealey on this undefeated UT football team but I turned down the chance. Had I known how good Ealey and that UT team was going to be I definitely would have played. A youthful bad decision that I regret yet today. --Hillman
Marcus Tullius Cicero, B. Jan. 3, 106 BC - D. Dec. 7, 43 BC
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself."
