I have been a electrician scince i was 18 I am 29 now.Its a great trade and a lot of $$$$$$ can be made in it but it can get rough at times and work can get a little scarce. It is also a hard trade to get out of once you are in.

For the last 7 years I have been a Contract Security Officer for the Dept. of Homeland Security/Federal Protective Service. We make sure that all federal property and its employees and public clientel are safe.

Considering the fact that the victim is the first one at the scene of a violent crime, I believe all law abiding citizens should be armed.

I do alot of things which I will not divulge, but when I'm not busy trying to cover up crashed space aliens, my duties take me all over the world.

So far I've been to:

Germany (multiple locations)
New Foundland
Turkey (multiple locations)
Persian Gulf (multiple locations)
All over the United States

Not a bad deal so far. 11 years into it, and I plan on going at least 20-24 years and retiring. Once I retire, I plan on doing something like a hunting or fishing guide. If that doesn't work out, I'll get a part time job at a gun shop (talk about fun work...lol).
Thank you for your service!!!!
Keep your head down!!!!

I have a motor sport or a preformance auto business we service/restore/sell for the most part american muscle cars. Over the years we added service for exoctic euro cars as there aren't a lot of shops that can handle those cars. 15 years in business and doing well until recently..go figure no one is spending money on toys these days.

Before that I was an engineer for a short time, before that I was a Marine (how I paid for my education) and might have to admit part of the best time in life. I left the USMC after eight years as a LT my last TOD was the storm and that was recall and where I got my LT bars. Almost a year in the sand and here we are again my son is on his 4th TOD and is a Sgt at 22, he has four years in and another to do before he can become reserve. All I want for him is to be out and all he wants is for the war to be over.

So thats what I do

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
Dr. Adrian Rogers”

Po-Lice officer in a drug task force. I basically do the exact same thing as those a-holes on that DEA show on spike except i dont get paid as much or have those nifty federal super powers. My weekly goal is to make at least one person cry at the realization that they are going to be spending some time in jail if not prison. Its an awesome job i look forward to my alarm going off every morning. O and it affords me the ability to carry concealed here in Illinois...........awesome.

I come up with last minute desperate solutions, to impossible problems, created by other Effing people.... In the Commercial Electrical Power Industry.

And no, I don't have anything to do with how much to have to pay to heat your house.
