    we learn what we live.
    my father and grandfathers treated all people with equal respect.
    the CEO, and the custodian. the governor and the voter.
    color, sexual preference, position in life, not important.
    content of character is.
    my measure of character is not in how a person treats the folks deemed important and needed, but is in how the person not important to life, in any way, is shown the same respect.
    I seek to be part of the solution instead of being part of the problem.
    that attitude is present in my adult children, and is being passed on to my grandchildren.
    I owe a debt of gratitude to my ancestors, that can never be repaid.
    being "liked" not so important. having a clear conscience is.

    I am very polite, fair, honest, loyal and stern. I am outspoken and will call out BS in a heartbeat. I don't put up with crap from anyone. I tend to be passionate about issues that affect our freedom and our way of life. My family comes first and I will kill or die trying to protect them. Throw in a great sense of humor and sarcasm on top of all of that and it's who I am. Am I a nice guy? Some people would say yes, other will tell you I am a prick. It's the ones who have crossed me that say I'm a prick. And some this sounds like a description in a singles ad, I like craft beer, good bourbon, and long walks to the gun store.

    Most people would put me in that category. Thankfully, most all the people around me are nice, so it's not much of a challenge.

    I try to be, but then again, have been just lucky over the years in that I have had very, very few instances where people tried to take advantage of my positive attitude. I try to lead with the good, and try to follow the Golden Rule as the rudder of my life's direction.

    Overwhelmingly I attribute that to luck or God's grace, in that He watches out after children and fools.

    I've managed to be a nice guy most of the time because the people I surround myself with allow me to be a nice guy. I also fully understand those whom have to deal with the public as part of their job don't always get that option.

    I am a nice guy to nice people, but there seems to be fewer and fewer of those every year.

  7. My wife wonders how I can be the nicest guy you'll ever meet, AND a world class a**hole, simultaneously.

    This pretty much describes my attitude.

    Yeah, I'm a nice guy and people respond accordingly.

    Was getting my annual check-up at the VA a few months ago
    when the Dr. said that since i had two fake legs, i was the
    only patient of hers that actually deserved to have a
    handicap sticker ; then asked me if i wanted one ?

    I said NO !!
    To many people actually need those parking spaces ; as long as i can do a 3-hr hike in red-rock canyon
    or an afternoon on a kite-board in choppy water -------
    (i'm sure i can walk out from the center of a parking lot).

    Me a nice Guy ? Unfortunately NOT always.
    My new Years resolution, is to try and not be selective as
    to who i choose to try and get a smile out of; as i pass by.
    It's So easy, to make a person feel like there Human; with
    a kind word or two !!!

    I am blunt, and have no patience for "entitlement" type people.

    I am generally a nice person, unless given a reason not to be. I usually try to put other people first and myself second. That being said, I do take some time for myself, as well as say no frequently.

    I'm an incredibly nice guy, unless I don't like you... When I was younger, I was too nice and some people took advantage of it.

    I'm not that nice anymore, but I will still give the shirt off my back to a stranger, since I've needed a shirt, or two, in my time.
