Wild Fact About Me When I was 13 I lifted a Tilt-A-Whirl (carnival ride) from its tracks when someone got hurt.
My Philosophy Don't be an asshole. There are things that are okay and things that aren't. Usually it's easy. If not, I spend time thinking about it, then make a decision without being inflexible. But certain rules are never in doubt. If I break or compromise those rules, I become an asshole.
What Gives Me Hope People who aren't overly freaked out by maggots (it's a study).
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Do anything I could to ready ourselves for more severe climate change and fix what I could. Distribute global wealth. Open sanctuaries for people and animals. Train rescue dogs to become different types of companions to the many people who need them. I've seen great things with autistic kids and emotional support animals. Make declawing a cat illegal or letting cats outside (they destroy the ecosystem and die earlier than otherwise). Use the TNR system for feral cats. They can be released in rat infected areas. Include dental with medical insurance.

Oversee Monsanto, Dow. Enforce strict campaign finance laws. End lobbyists giving favors or money. End factory farming. End capital punishment. Stress mental health for everyone. Make drugs and prostitution legal and safe. Make sure women decide what's right for them and their bodies, even if the woman is 10yo.

Arrest all criminals in DC. Prosecute bad cops like any other criminal. Same with white collar criminals. Martha Stewart should have done her time like any one else who steals money. Arrest all bankers who've broken the law. Prosecute drunk drivers for attempted manslaughter. Prison time and anger therapy for child abusers. Life for pedophiles and child pornographers. Prosecute the US war criminals that lied to their own country and broke the Geneva Convention with pointless torture. Outlaw the Confederate flag the way the Germans have, I believe, outlawed the swastika flag, etc.

Get rid of 'hate' crimes unless you want to start including women- why are we exempt? Sexist crap. Go organic, support small farms, plant hemp worldwide. Shut down Nestle and take back our water. Recycle everything. Encourage science, make education free globally. Stop child marriages and the horrific mutilation of little girls. Negotiate, not retaliate. Work on possibly re-unifying Korea. Find a solution with Palestine and Israel that doesn't include Jews committing genocide. Make Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert stay where they belong. Make top-notch internet free to everyone. Bust up the monopolies. A business owner can only make so much more than the least paid employee. Drop charges against Edward Snowden. Shred all illegal spying info from the criminals of NSA. Fair Trade products only. Balance the power between wo/men. Protect vulnerable girls and women. Have each state elect a woman and a man as senators and enforce a retirement age.
What/who changed my life and why child abuse.
What Bugs Me cheating Care2 for extra points, emotional undercurrents, Nestle, the 1%, sexism, lying, racists, dick flicks, assholes, child abuse, climate change, weasel words, state sponsored murder, pedophiles, evangelism, fatalism, capitalism, homelessness
