This is a place for me to spout off about the injustices, inequality and discrimination which as it so happens makes it a fairly frequent event. I also like to analyze the arguments of religious fundamentalists, particularly when it comes to their screeds against abortion, gay people, etc.
I’d once thought I’m not happy unless I’m griping but the reality is that I enjoy a challenge. It isn’t a gripe so much as firing a salvo of truth right back at those who would call me a second class citizen.
Now more about me. I hadn’t said this in the past but I am gay and have been with the same guy for near 22 years now.
My reading habits run the gamut from fantasy and sci-fi to current affairs.
My day job is I.T. Professional specializing in Linux systems and some integration when it comes to the dread Windows. In fact for my laptop I run Ubuntu not Windows. So I guess you could call me a hard core Linux guy.
Right now I’m most politically active when it comes to marriage equality. And if you hadn’t guessed by reading the blog, yes I’m gay and have been in a relationship for 20 years now. But I kind of cooled off working with Marriage Equality Rhode Island when they changed up their leadership. I don’t agree with what they’re doing.
Other areas I’m active in are election politics, the health care debate (I’m pro single-payer/universal), and pro legalization of marijuana, not because I use it but because I think current law on the subject is idiotic at its very best. And I’m rather thrilled that the Democratic party cleaned up in this last election of 2012.
And more to on the political – I am currently the Data Analyst and Advisor for the Todd Giroux for Governor campaign. You can reach me there at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to volunteer for the campaign.
