ABOUT MAD OGRE is a "weblog" or "Blog" of sorts.  Sometimes it's also a little more.  It's part journal, part "Zine", and part open letter to friends, family, and the rest of the internet.  It's a place where I throw down my takes on what's happening around the world, and in my life.  I write it mainly in a conversational tone as if we're just hanging out and talking.  Excuse the vulgarity and profanity, because I'm former military and the jargon sticks with you.  Of course most of my friends are former military as well and couldn't give a rat's ass about colorful vocabularies.

The format is simple.  Newest stuff is at the top.  This allows easy reading of the most current content.  You wont have to scroll down through the history to get it.  Older stuff gets archived. 

Mad Ogre's areas of interest are in Firearms, Automotives, Technology, Politics, and anything else that bleeps on my interest radar at the time.   I'll talk about the headlines.  I'll talk about what I catch on the news.  I'll talk about what I read on the web.  I'll talk about what I've been up to. I'm a pundit and have opinions about everything and I'm not afraid to state them.  I've never heard of anything too dangerous to talk about... so I'll talk about anything if I feel like it.  This Zine is published and updated as I feel like it.  Sometimes, I'll even update it a few times a day.  All depends on what I have going on. 

This site started out in 1998 as a personal home page hosted by HOTBOT, a part of Wired magazine's online presence.  This makes one of the oldest "Blogs" on the internet.  It was originally done for no reason other than I was bored, and HotBot had a simple tool to put up those kinda pages.  You just filled in the form and presto... it was done.  Very lame.  Hotbot also allowed you to do your own HTML and after a week of the shake and bake site, I redid the whole thing written on WORDPAD.   Not much better, but I was doing it only for myself.  Still am. 

The site has grown and evolved in a manner of my liking. Again, I'm not doing this for you, but for me.  If I was doing a Pay For Content site, then it would be different.  Old links die and I don't keep them up to date.  I make no guarantees, so you are getting what you pay for.

About Ogre. 

I am a gun owner. I am also a NRA Certified Pistol and Personal Protection instructor. I am an American. I am also a father.   I served my Country in the US Army as an 11B Light Infantryman.  I served my God as a Missionary for my Church.  I believe the Constitution and the rest of what our forefathers did as direct inspiration for God.  That includes the Second Amendment.  Therefore, I take the Second Amendment very seriously, as I take each article of the Bill of Rights. 

I think one of the big problems these days is lack of responsibility. Something else is always to blame. No one knows how to stand up and take it on the chin. If they have to - they will sue someone because of it. You can get sued or fired for simply stating the obvious... Personal Responsibility built this country and now the lack of it is ruining it. 

I am often gregarious, but I don't really like people until I get to know them... I make few friends, but when I do, I make friends for life and will happily give them the shirt off my back.  I'm often quiet and reserved in most situations, soft spoken.  Yet I've been compared to as a cross between Steve Ballmer, Dennis Miller and even Jack Nicholson. 

I enjoy good food and good company.  Good movies and good books.  I like discussing politics and issues with people other than Blissninnies.  I am a conservative but I am not Republican or Libertarian.  I'm somewhere in between.  I dislike the Democrats, but I agree with several Democrat points of view.  I'm also a Mormon, and proud to be so.  I'm also a Pagan, and I really don't like the whole 3 hours of Church every week that other Mormons seem enjoy. 

I'm a Lover and a Fighter.  I'm not a Chess Club Geek, nor a Jock... but I can hang out with either group comfortably.  I like Sci-Fi, but hate Star Trek.  I like racing, but I hate NASCAR.  I had a Supra, and enjoy street racing... even enjoyed The Fast and the Furious, but I find "Ricers" to be laughable.  I'm full of contradictions.  I'm an Aries.  And that gun I'm holding is a Springfield 1911 .45 Government Model and yes, indeed, I know how to use it.  

I am educated.  I've studied  at some of the finest schools the US Army has to offer, (Advanced Infantry Training, Air Assault, Combat Life Savers, Jungle Warfare and others) and various colleges and Universities around the West.  BYU, USU, UVSC, CNCC... I have also attended seminar classes at other schools that I don't have time to list.  Such seminars involved high tech aerodynamics, nanotechnology and robotics.  I am continuing my education in the areas of History, Psychology, Creative Writing, and anything else I damn well feel like at the time of registration.  Pretty much everything I have done in my life has been so I can write about it... because above everything else, I am a writer.
