Family status (SO + kids):
married, two kids, 1 pending (my little womb tenant)

Do you have a favorite topic?:
i love debates. i just hate when someone says 'well i'm against this just because it's wrong'. if you want to be against something thats fine, just have the knowledge and/or reason to back it up.

Is there anything about which you are particularly knowledgeable?:
eh. not that knowledgeable lol

Your hot button issue?:
i have two; gay marriage and welfare.

if you're gay, you're gay. i won't like you any more or any less and i'm not going to hate on you because of your sexual preference. if you're a jerk i might because you're a jerk but not because you're gay. i also don't believe in using gay-slang as an insult. but i think it's inappropriate for gays to be married in a church where gay marriage is specifically shunned against. yes we've made great strides over the years and yes change is imminant, but this is a slippery slope of what may come later.

and welfare. if you lose your job, gotta feed the kids, by all means get welfare. but don't live off it for 10 years and keep popping out kids to secure your government checks, while smoking pot. i think they should be drug tested, and should only be on welfare an allotted amount of time. just because it isn't a job you want doesn't mean you should sit on my bill anymore. if i need money to feed my kids i'll flip burgers if i have to.
