"Mine is the sort of patriotism that loves America with open eyes." -Political activist who was deported for her veiws during the Red Scare I hope to be a vet one day, I hold a job at an Emergency Animal Clinic and a Vet after school. I want to join the peace corps or a similar organization one day. My main concerns are for peace and an end to the endless pointless war based on lies, environmental protection and finding and actually using an alternative fuel, protecting endangered species, helping those in need in Africa and other countries, and stopping animal abuse. I will be able to do much more once I am on my own and out of school. I love to read, mostly classics and Shelly, my I like Emerson though, and the only modern day author i really like is Vonnegut, for his ideas. I am a vegetarian, some day I will become a vegan once I am on my own, I am a pacifist and belive that all wars, if adressed in due time, can be solved without violence through negotiation. I belive that all wars are caused by greed, and above all, IGNORANCE! My favorite color is blue, and I like old music, Crosby Still Nash and Young, Simon and Garfunkle, and the Beatles. I love Neil Youngs new album Living With War, hopefully it will spark the reaction in society I hope it will and wake us up. My favorite band is U2. I also like some Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers. Any random classic song that you mention I am likely to know and like, especially from hte sixties and early seventies. I hate rap though. I can't wait until I get on my own and out of Texas, then I will be able to truly be an activist. Oh, random side note, below it says I am a Christain Episcopalian, which is mostly true, but I have my own personal religion that encorporates a lot of other things, and changes a lot of things, so this is how I was raised, and closest to what I am now. I keep thinking of things to add, I am also against hunting and I don't wear fur and I am quitting leather (i haven't totally quit leather 'cause my parents aren't too crazy about the whole idea). And the only sport I like is hockey, but I am a MASSIVE Stars fan. Also, I realized I forgot to put this in here. I am very anti-death penalty. It is not cheaper, due to human error innocent people will asways be killed, and killing people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong makes no sense, it is murder.
Read my billboard, it's pretty much all I have to say.
Also, read my billboard.
What Gives Me Hope
My goals for myself and for the world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Stop the War, send aid but NO MILITARY to countries in need. I will probably get bad comments for this, but allow Gay Marrage (I am not gay though), make harsher punishments for animal abuse, do everything immaginable in my power to better the environment. And abolish the death penalty because it makes no sense to kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong, it costs more to kill them, it is murder, and innocent people die because humans make mistakes
What/who changed my life and why
Lots, not sure what specifically yet, haven't lived long enough to figure it out.
I have SOOOO many, right now it would have to be "Mine is hte sort of patriotism that loves America with open eyes." Read billboard. People always say liberals don't support troops, I DO, I support them and say we should bring them home, two different things. Same thing goes for when people say liberals are unpatriotic, this is the best quote for that.
Let's push Conyers over the edge by flooding his office with phone calls, faxes, and Emails on Monday and Tuesday. Let him know that only impeachment hearings
1-will make it on TV, 2-will force compliance with subpoenas by eliminating "executive privilege", 3-will hold brazen criminals accountable, and 4-will convince voters that Democrats care about the Constitution.
Plus just search on here or wherever for more thing to do, but just DO SOMETHING !
Impeach Bush AND Cheney!
If you are from another country than the US, we still need you to speak up and help us, this affects the whole world!
