I’m John C. Daub, and I’ve gone by the nickname “Hsoi” since my undergraduate days long ago. This is my place to say what I want, and while you’re welcome to be here, you’re still a guest in my house so behave accordingly.

- Benefactor (Life) Member, National Rifle Association; Benefactor (Life) Member, Texas State Rifle Association; Life Member, Second Amendment Foundation; Life Member, Gun Owners of America; Member, Firearms Policy Coalition.
- “Small-l” libertarian, I suppose (fiscally conservative, socially liberal, and generally “leave me alone, don’t tread on me” sort of approach to things).

But in the end… I’m “just some guy.” I don’t consider myself to be anyone special, but my self-esteem is just fine.

I’m not one for bullshit. I do my best to not bullshit people, I don’t like to be bullshitted, and I generally don’t put up with bullshit. Life’s too short for games and bullshit. Be honest and straight with people.
