DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Becoming Rough Men

Defining Rough Men Warriors

To understand my journey of becoming a roughman, it is important to first define just what a roughman is. A roughman is many different things to many different people depending on the circumstances and the perspective of the onlooker. There are no words that can perfectly capture what walking the path of a roughman means. Is it a calling, a way of life, a profession, or a destiny? The answer in a word is “YES”. It is all of these things and more. You don't choose to journey as Rough Men, that path is chosen for your by divine design. Many men and women go looking for the path and yet others are dropped on the path out of pre-ordained commandments.

In short, a roughman is a righteous warrior, God's army of truth on this Earth. Roughmen are the men and women of the military, law enforcement, fire service, EMS, and various other public service fields that strive to keep and protect the innocent from the tyranny of evil men. We are the sheepdogs that protect the sheep from the ravenous wolves who seek to consume everything pure and good about the sheep. Although we have to wield the same tools and engage in similar activities as the wolves, our rage and righteous explosions of violence are never unleashed upon the innocent. History has shown that the most effective way to combat evil violence is with a greater show of righteous violence doled out on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves. We are a beacon of light and justice for the weak and powerless. We are God's flaming sword of justice taken up in defense of his lesser children. We do not go quietly into that good night, we stomp around in it and take evil to places even demons fear to tread. We are Rough Men!

From Everyman to Rough Men

I was not raised to be a warrior. I am definitely one of those people that was chosen by the path not the other way around. As a child, I never went looking for trouble, but injustice to others always found me and I could never walk away from someone being beaten down whether it was at the hand of a bully or just by life's circumstances. I gravitated toward righting wrongs and and fighting battles for those unable to fight for themselves. A few years go by and by chance I blink my eyes and fall into being a cop. I never understood the other officers who saw their job as a way of life, religion, or elite brotherhood. At first for me it was a means to and end and a weekly paycheck to put food on the table. I was too young and immature to understand that the path called me for what it saw in me, that unwillingness to let injustices exist. I never looked for a fight, but when it showed up I made sure it knew I was there.

Giving My Thoughts A Voice

I wake up sixteen years later and I am still walking the path of being a rough man. It was a long, slow process to get the point of writing these words for others to read. I was always drawn to writing and have written poetry, essays, and fiction on and off for my entire life. I do not now or ever have I, seen myself as an activist or overly patriotic. I joined the NRA at age 16 because I was raised around guns and believed everyone deserved the right to keep arms to protect themselves, their loved ones, and the innocent who could not defend themselves. I go to church every Sunday that I am off work and my family is there with me. But for the past few years, I have slowly seen a shift in society to begin believing injustices and having the intent to criminalize the conservative beliefs that have served me so well over my life. All of a sudden, I'm a bad guy for being a Christian. Now liberal people brand be a bigot for believing homosexuality is a sin. I'm being called cruel for wanting to protect unborn life. I became confused, I felt like I was walking in a fog of disbelief. I could not understand why the same Constitution protecting liberals, homosexuals, pro-choice advocates, and other leftist agendas, no longer protected my conservative, Christian values and way of life.

I sat back for a while and saw our American society degraded little by little and the Rough Men I have lived and worked by become cursed by Liberals for their oaths to protect and serve the weak. Finally, I begin to speak out. As a Christian man, it was my God driven duty to be an example for my brother and sister Rough Men and for my teenage daughter to walk the true path and stop injustices that were in my power to stop and to expose those to all that were bigger than my solutions could handle. And now I find myself with a Facebook page and a blog speaking out louder and louder and see that there are people out there who need me to speak out. I do not feel that I am a genius and have all the answers, but I know wrong is wrong, justice is for everyone, and God still runs this world no matter how hard people work to make you think he doesn't' exist. Each rough man has a voice, and I feel it is our duty to God, Country, and Family that we use that voice to expose the injustices and evil that men are doing. If we don't stand for what is right and virtuous, then who will. I do not want to get before my Maker and have regrets or shame for the helpless not being helped, the hungry not being fed, nor the powerless not being defended. Godspeed brother and sister Rough Men!
