Every man should own a fine watch, a fine firearm and a fine car at some point in his life! I truely believe this. OK, a G-Shock, A Glock and A Toyota are fine for everyday life and the stuff we come across. But an Omega, a Rorhbaugh and a BMW are toys we should not overlook..........
Life will give you what you ask from it!
G. SuarezCourtesy comes from the age when the lack thereof would get you a nice appointment at dawn with the offended party. Sadly we don't have such things today, but good manners as well as appropriate speech are marks of the refined and the cultured, whereas the lack of self control in anything is the mark of a booger picker from the bottom rung of society.
Our culture is in decline, and manners and socially acceptable behaviors are going the way of the dodo bird. Too many men are rude, cowardly, and craven, and set poor examples for their progeny. Children watch their parents act as though the world is their toilette and other people are owed no consideration at all. Ours is a society of the rude, the spoiled, and the entitled.
