Thank you and same to you brother! They done me wrong, and did try taking me out, breaking me or ruining me a few times now over the years; but God said He wants to keep me in the fight, so I do!
Now I’ll announce to the world what I told some of these no goods and bastards to their faces over the years “face to face,” you want me gone, you have to blow my brains out you mothers! I might be like the Frank Sinatra character “Loudmouth Good Guy,” Angelo Maggio in the Classic Film, “Here to Eternity” who had the guts and faith on his side to hang in there against the brutes and spineless thugs of the world, and in the end he got it; bad, but he was NO COWARD or a QUITTER, he was ALL HEART!
“His vibrantly cocky attitude gets him into trouble again and again. And Again!” But, his benevolent attitude is demonstrated in some touching scenes, one in particular that I won’t spoil by telling you, so that you can watch it and get the impact fresh! Ya know, like a punch in the face! Don’t worry; I won’t breaka you face, goomba; ( Italian: (KUM-PAR-AY) really meaning fellow country man, friend, buddy, comrade.) Yea, I’m like that guy in that story and maybe a tad like Sinatra being a “WOP” just like the character Sinatra played where he got picked on and “called one of those which he wasn’t,” but to me that was same as calling a black person the N word! But, I’m also much like his best friend in the movie played by Montgomery Clift as Private Robert E Lee Prewitt, another very good guy with heart who’s a bit of a romantic like me too, but in the film he is the guy that’s a real boxer and knows how to kick ass! “Maggio is very protective of his family and all his loved ones, including his best friend, Prewitt. Despite Maggio’s almost reckless impulsiveness and his human character flaws, he really does care about other people deeply to a fault, and is willing to take part in his friend Prewitt’s sufferings if for no other reason than personal affection and his overriding sense of fairness or justice. But in the end, the sum total of his benevolent characteristics of loyalty and justice coupled with his acute propensity for friendship redeem him which ultimately inspires his best buddy Prewitt to be willing and able to risk his own life for the sake of Maggio’s memory, a lasting legacy of true friendship.
Yea, Angelo Maggio he took some lumps but never quit and that’s me now, had some lumps and willing to take more until I get home! Or the fat lady sings; whichever comes first! God’s justice be done on earth as it is in heaven! Let no man attempt to stand in the way or flaunt that which God decrees!
For your convenience this link will provide some background and memorabilia on the film.
BTW this is a line from a comment to me today from a Patriot connection that acted as a spark as I was working out a massive dilemma I’m still dealing with for years now which was a response to an earlier comment I made on the net! Like I always say we never know where the needed inspiration or vital message is going to come from! This helped me get my thoughts and heart on this new Blog!
“I sure hope so, brother. God Bless you for fighting the good fight in a socialist pit.”
