Attention: Somehow, being the airhead I am, I accidentally deleted my entire bio, so please bear with me as I gather up all the quotes I had here. And no, I'm not that forward-thinking to have the quotes in another place. Thank you and good day.

Hello there, stranger! My name is Jay. I'm a Christian, I love talking about the Bible and theology, and I like history, especially WWII history, and of course chess.

If you disagree with anything I say or have said, remember that you are wrong because I am always right. If you disagree with that, then we can have a civil discussion where I will prove to you how right I am

The American's Creed
Written 1917 by William Tyler Page, Accepted by the U.S. House of Representatives 1918

"I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

She Was a Phantom of Delight

"And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine;
A Being breathing thoughtful breath,
A Traveller between life and death;
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;
A perfect Woman, nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort, and command;
And yet a Spirit still, and bright
With something of angelic light."
- William Wordsworth

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."
- John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
