War on Terror: Oh, you mean that thing we’ve just made worse by going after it? I think that by proclaiming the issue and actively rooting it out, we’re just creating more enemies for ourselves. Take for example, the drone strikes. A lot of them, we don’t even know if who we’re shooting at is actually a threat. We just blow them up to be sure. How pissed would you be if your innocent family died because some bully superpower decided to blow them up just because they remotely thought that they were a “threat”? It’s something we do need to crack down on, don’t get me wrong, but it is insane how much we’ve blown it out of proportion.

And just some food for thought; if we’re so scared of the terrorists, doesn’t that mean they’ve won?

Sorry if this seemed rushed. I’m a little busy.

The Environment: If we had it my way, every coal and natural gas plant in the country would be replaced by either a solar/wind farm or a nuclear facility. But we won’t, because the Green party will never get a seat in the House or the Senate. Which means we’re totally fucked, because for whatever reason, the thing that threatens the entire globe is not on our top priorities list. What a surprise. The 21st won’t kill all of us, but I wouldn’t be shocked if Florida was underwater by 2050.

Death Penalty: I’m for it and not for it at the same time. The reason why I’m against it is only in case they have the wrong guy. They’ve executed the wrong guy a few times, which is unacceptable. But I don’t care enough about someone who deserved the penalty to let them live.

Nuclear Power: I’ve already said that I’d love for it to expand more, but to reach a broader audience, I’ll bring up Iran specifically. You know, one of the countries on the “axis of evil” our not so intelligent President Bush said. I wouldn’t care if we confirmed if they had fully developed the technology. (And to be honest, if I was in charge, I’d be helping them get it) We’re only making the hate us more by being assholes about it. And if they do develop a nuclear warhead, who cares still? They aren’t stupid enough to use it on anyone. If they wanted it for purely intimidation purposes, let them have it. I don’t think they’re reckless enough to use it, because I know they know the consequences.

Health Care: Everyone should have it. I’m not too informed about the entire thing, but no one should be ruled out of being medically treated no matter what.

Drug Laws: Kind of glad they finally legalized pot in Washington and Colorado. Pot is less harmful than drinking and smoking, plus it is used medically. And it’ll be regulated and taxed, so it isn’t like dealers are roaming the streets. Anything heavier than pot though should stay illegal, like meth and cocaine.

Isolationism vs. Interventionism: I’m assuming you’re talking about this in a foreign sense. I personally hate how we’re always in the Middle East’s business, specifically. While we should care what’s going on there, we don’t need to drop 9 million drone strikes on the country in question just in case. As I said, we should care about what’s going on, and perhaps actively help/hinder the countries through the UN or otherwise, but we don’t need to stick our noses in anyone’s business, like for example, the Syrian civil war.

Illegal Immigration: Of all the subjects you could choose to start out with, it had to be the one I know the least about. I really can’t answer this well due to my lack of knowledge. I’ll leave it at the fact that it needs to change since it is an issue. If that’s valid.

Gay Marriage: As a bisexual man, I think you can predict my answer on this.

Abortion: Mother’s choice. Not anyone but hers. If she has reasons to keep it, let her keep it. If she wants to abort it, abort the som’bitch. I can’t understand why you would force someone to keep a child they don’t want. Plus, as an atheist, I don’t give two shits if it already had a soul or some bullshit like that. You can’t apply religion to a law in a government that doesn’t have a national religion. Laws need to be secular, so they apply to everyone fairly.

Gun Control: I think we need to restrict them a bit. Perhaps just a psychology test once a year to ensure you won’t go shooting up a school full of little kids. (too soon?) We don’t need to ban them, that’d be just crazy. But having a little roadblock wouldn’t hurt anyone.

Oh look, another shooting in the US and the country acts like the world is ending, when the American government kills random civilians with drones every day! Woo!

I don’t know yet. Haven’t opened the box. I’m waiting for the right moment.

You take them and I’ll post pictures of me eating some Gorilla Munch I bought the other day.

It’s related to The Elder Scrolls. Akatosh and the Empire, to be more specific.

I’m… I’m going down with the ship, brother. I can’t just leave her behind. The S.S Sparity will always be a part of me.

Tell the S.S. RariShy to send a rescue crew, I would be honored to serve with them. Quickly, before it is too late!

3) I was born in New Jersey and lived there until I was 10 and came to live with my mother and step father. my dad was not doing well at the time, so he insisted I live with her, and I haven’t wanted to leave since, so. Here I am in Pennsylvania.
2) I imagine them being pansexual. I feel that bisexuality is more or less the same thing, at least in the way that I love.
1) No offense to you, but Advance. He’s my homedawg gangsta-G brochacho brah. But you’re climbing the ladder.
00) My favorite dictator? Hm… I’m not sure any dictator in the world could be considered a favorite of mine, but if I had to choose, it is either Lenin or Mao Zedong. Why? Well, communism man. Communism.

7) I’m not very good at freehand drawing, which is why I like doing it on a computer much more. I mean, if I have to, I’ll draw freehand, but I’m no concept artist. I recently started working on something with just my pen earlier today. I’ll finish it and send it to you, perhaps?

6) I pull them more often than I’d like. I don’t know if I have an issue, but I just can’t sleep some nights. Mind is too full of thoughts. I often only get 3-5 hours of sleep at night. Last time I went completely through was about a month ago.

5) A weekend? Spent with friends? I am an alien to this concept.

4) There will be a time where I can no longer work, I’m sure. My knees already give me enough issues, and I’m not even 20 yet. I’m not really all that looking forward to having to work, at least in a field that I do not enjoy. If I’m going to commit myself to something, I want it to be something I like and something I feel obligated to do. Something that feels natural. Which is why I want to get into art.

10) Either Latin or Russian. I’ve always wanted to learn latin, and I always want to learn a non-latin based language.

9) Well, I play very paragon, and romance Liara. Usually play a custom FemShep with black hair. Always play the defaulted BroShep. The forum that I moderate for got large off of the indoctrination theory, so ME is brought up a lot. Someone posted a topic there for a quiz that says I am most like a hanar. So I am a female paragon hanar.

8) Red explosion. We destroy them or they destroy us. First game I ever completely finished was Croc, when I was like 4. My mom used to play it with me. I still have a copy of the game.
