Since Aug 8, 2007
We now live in an Ineptocracy: A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
Who are Cavalry Scouts:
I am the eyes and ears of the battlefield, my radio is my most valuable weapon, I can maneuver undetected for hours, days, weeks at a time.
I stalk the enemy when they think no one is watching, I am the forefront of death, brought up from the Green where no other man is welcome besides my own.
I am the tip of the spear, the first in, the last out, I know every inch of every weapon and piece of equipment that I am provided.
I can adapt and overcome any situation I am put in, because I am tough, smart, and fear nothing but fear itself, which I am.
I can choose to make my presence known or I can be the dark shadow thats stalks you in the night.
I show no mercy for my enemies, I show no remorse for my actions, I am fowl, dirty, rough, mean, and heartless.
Most will wish they had never crossed my path, my body shows no pain or weakness, my eyes hold the souls inside the hell within me of every man who has stood in my way.
I am a force that does not exist, yet my enemies know of my vengeful wrath.
I stand before God who will not accept me, and before the Devil who will not claim me, for I am too harsh and twisted for either.
I am a part of a tradition thousands of years old, it holds more value to my fellow comrades and I then life itself.
I wear spurs and a Stetson hat that signify my heritage and show I am superior to everyone on the battlefield.
I am an Armored Reconnaissance Specialist, one of the most feared warriors of all time, I let no one dictate my path, my actions, my thoughts, or my life.
I have the upmost respect for my country and its colors, for I am the fabric that holds Old Glory together.
I am a disciple of Uncle Sam, sent from the deepest, darkest, parts of this universe to commit acts of violence so that others may prosper after me.
I pay my respects to the ones who have gone before me, and pave the path for the ones to come after.
I set the example and lead from the front, I strike with the most fierce blows you have seen, I leave ruins of civilizations in my rearview, perfection is the only answer, victory is the only circumstance, the fight is all we know, and death is certain for all.
I am a CAVALRY TROOPER!
And if you ain't CAV, you ain't SHIT!
I served in the U.S. Army for 8 1/2 years
For relaxation I listen to music which consists of almost everything from AC-DC to ZZ Top with exception to that rap crap.
IF YOU AIN'T CAV, YOU AIN'T SH*T!
