About Me Still under construction but making progress. Almost have the judgmental pot hole filled in.
My politics are dependent on the issue not the "label". Everyone is responsible for their actions and needs to be held accountable for them. Humor, without it why live. I am sarcastic, relatively witty, enjoy it when a child tells a joke.

If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would leave peace on earth and fixing the environment to others. Mine is a bit closer to home .
