    The Crap I Get For My Views

    Even though I live in the state of Texas, where deadbeat conservatives like Rick "Governor Oops" Perry reign in their own little world, I'm a very progressive person when it comes to politics, and I get so sick from all the GOP worshiping fools who think my views are wrong...

    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! ...
