yea I know, it was a joke, I'm not totally ignorant of what our military is doing.

But really, I make most of my money working with my dad doing all sorts of stuff, working on roofs, fixing up cars, whatever. I've been doing it over two years and so far I am getting around $1000 dollars from it. Then I get a weekly 20 dollar allowance doing my choirs, keeping my room clean, walking the dogs, doing the dishes, cutting the grass, that sort of thing.

I have the same exact job as you, except at a different golf course. Very easy job, i have to pick the range as well. I also get free golf at one of the most premier courses in michigan.

I am and very proud of it... but correct, I am not in a tense/hostile environment right now, but in time that may change. I don't know, but If I'm called to go... Then go I will.

Don't take this the wrong way... I'm not upset or anything about the comment. So don't trip... Just getting the facts right.

I cracked a bargain with my dad. He agreed to buy it for me if:
a) I got a C average in school
b) I keep my room clean and help my mother
c) I do exactly what he wants me to do on the farm at the exact second he says it.

Yeah, I know I have basically sold myself into slavery...or...something. It's worth it. A 1000$ setup...certainly!

Only a C average. Wow, that's not even trying.

My dad is nice enough to bring me to work where they do IT involving what we talk about basically on the forums. Whatever time I work there I get his part of the paycheck so 30 dollars and hour x 3 hours = 90 bucks a week x 4 weeks = 360 bucks a month. Kinda sucks money wise but is fun because of how easy it is and I love it like most of you.
