    I still get called out

    for being a rich, selfish pothead with an obsession with sex. #nottrue of me anyhow... But I'm a libertarian, and Dems and Reps will believe anything and everything.

    The Crap I Get For My Views

    Yesss

    It seems, where I live and online as well, as soon as I say the words "more conservative" I get a bunch of crap. Apparently, it's a horrid thing to be more conservative. I get everything about Bush and blah blah blah. Doesn't mean I agree with him! ...
