I am a 35 year old Maysville Ky resident.  Growing up on a farm I believe that honesty and hard work ethic are the two most important traits a man can have.  I have been a contractor most of my life and possess a real passion for the industry. I now work as a towboat pilot on the Ohio river pushing coal barges. As a hardworking American I love to voice my opinion on corporate America, our rapidly changing government and the socialist regime, and personal finance.
