Born in Missouri.

Grade school in Indiana.

Joined the USN the day after I graduated from high school.

Got around a bit in the Navy. Lived in S.E.A., Sicily, Japan, various South American countries.

And now I'm back in Missouri.

Yes. Not labeling myself politically or socially. I am a registered pub.

RE: Have you ever lived anywhere else besides where you live now?
No. I have lived in 6 American states (CA, FL, AZ, VT, NC, and PA, in order. I have since needed to move back to CA). I have always been registered as Independent, but for major political seats, I have not been able to vote Republican at all. But I also do not hate that party (or any party) as a whole. I just don't feel it's right for me to commit.

Over the years, I feel like I've gotten somewhat more liberal as far as racial politics. The idea of affirmative action and race quotas (which, I think, are illegal anyway. Anybody?) has kind of made me cringe at times. "Let the cream rise to the top", I would say (and in a perfect America, I'd go back to fiercely standing by that). But these days, I at least put on blinders, because I had read something recently (can't remember what) that convinced me that swinging the pendulum the other way---not for equality, which may never happen---but for fairness, is actually a good thing. We need a forward-thinking society, focussed on the present and the future. Maybe not so much the past. 


I also have gotten much more onboard with environmentalism. Due to certain health issues that have cropped up with me, I believe global warming is a thing. Pollution traps heat, or however it goes. At first, I had to be dragged kicking and screaming (maybe because my parents are environmentalism hobbyists, and it kind of wears on me at times). But now I get it. Not because I'm a nature lover (I'm better in the city), but because life is just easier if we can manage our resources. 

I still like NASCAR, though.

I've lived in nine different states, spent time in 43 of fifty, and been to four other countries and I'm more liberal leaning than the Dems. Guess I help bear out NPR. Smile

And as usual...

The "fuck all polls" option is missing.

I have lived in New England , Texas, AZ, Cali, and Kentucky. I am a left leaning libertarian. Every day since the November election I lean farther and farther left. By 2020 I may be wearing a beret and smoking big cigars.
