Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to just some of the questions that are asked of me or stated about me.
I am going to clear things up here hopefully

1) Are you a member of the Republican Party?
From the age of 18 until about 2007 I was a registered Republican. I never voted a straight Republican ticket in a general election, but voted for the the person and/or issues that I believed in. Yes I always voted in every category, but I always voted in what I thought was right. I am no longer a member of the Republican Party.

My Podcast

One of my hobbies is creating podcasts. The shows consist mainly of Poetry and Spoken Word, but I am thinking about creating other types of podcast but that is the future.

You will also other podcasts that I enjoy listening to


At some point someone broke into the software of this website which caused me to have to redo the site. I was planning on redoing the site anyway, but not as soon, so please give me some time and the site will be fully back and better than ever.

They Work Hard For The Money

 Where I work there are a number of street performers around. There are some who are in costumes, others who play music, some who dance and some who do other things. I have gotten to know some of them a little outside of there act, and they are all really nice people. Most of them come out daily and take photographs with the tourist in town (locals sometimes will take pictures with them, but mostly it is visitors.)

The Need To Cuss

 I have never really understood it, and maybe someone will write in the comments below this blog, but I really don't understand the need and desire to cuss during normal conversation. As I write this, there is a beautiful female sitting a couple of rows behind me that I was working up the nerve to talk to, who got a phone call and during the conversation got to cussing during it.

Cell Phone Addicts

 I had gone to the inauguration of someone who was elected Mayor of Oakland California about 6 years ago. Even though I did vote for the person, I really wasn't a fan of this person. Oh he did a number of wonderful things when he served in the US Congress, but for some reason I just didn't like him.
