About Me I'm rarely on Care2 Connect, but I would love to meet other like-minded people in my area. I've found it hard to make real connections with folks in San Diego (even though I grew up here), mostly because I am very liberal/left (non-religious & registered Green - and proud of it). We wanted to move to the Pacific NW, but looks like we're staying put for a while... so, introduce yourself if you want to chat and learn more.

NOTE: For all that I know "good" people come in many forms, since 2000 I've become averse to those who are non-liberal/left, disinterested activists, and belong to an organized religion of oppression and ignorance. So, keep that in mind when requesting friendship or introducing yourself. Thanks!

P.S. Check out this thought provoking article:
(but know... it is an "anti-red" reaction to the 04 election and a bit simplistic & perhaps over the top at times, but still has comments worth considering - and it can be good for a laugh too)
