« on: June 23, 2019, 09:11:29 AM »
Well, after an awesome day performing his SBit 3 yesterday, Chad (GenXMinuteman) has deservedly been promoted to a full on, it's-all-your-show, get-all-the-responsibility GREEN HAT!  :F &) :beer: :bow: O0 ^:)^  He will be an outstanding shoot boss, and we are going to use him and abuse him here in San Antonio and Alice for sure  ;). GREAT JOB CHAD!
CHEERS!

A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

Huzzah!!!
"We have always looked upon men as a set of beings naturally free - that a people can never be divested of those invaluable rights and liberties which are necessary to the happiness of individuals, to the well-beings of communities or to a well regulated state, but by their own negligence, imprudence, timidity or rashness. They are seldom lost, but when foolishly forfeited or tamely resigned." ~Jonas Clarke

The American Constitution is remarkable for its simplicity; but can only suffice a people habitually correct in their actions, and would be utterly inadequate to the wants of a different nation.  Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter in the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government. - Francis Grund 1837

"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

I want to quickly say Thank You to everyone congratulating me on making Green Hat.  This is one of the most amazing organizations I have ever had the opportunity to be a part of, also made up of some of the best people I will ever know in my lifetime.  Thank you all for the support on my way to this Appleseed milestone!  Tim (PaleRider), Jim (Ghostring) and Ron (A-Lister) have been very patient and helpful in teaching me the fine details of making a successful, smooth flowing event.  Also, many thanks to Steck, Marshall (Don'tFix1776), Chris (White Paladin), Steve (steve.lyon) and Jerry (TwinkleToes) for making it very easy for me to carry out a hectic one-day shoot plan with little difficulty.  Also Thanks to Roger (Two-Wolves), and Mark (El Jeffe) for their friendship and tutelage so long ago when I was a simple Appleseed new-shooter.  Thank all of you again!!!!  I am very happy to he able to help out an organization which has given me so much!!!

Well done! Thanks for putting forth the time and effort that it takes to reach this level.   :bow:
