I joined this site in 2007 and have tried engaging in conversation ever since but I give up. Yes I am from Texas and therefore am a complete idiot according to all the feedback I have been given. Yes I've disagreed with many of you and you have disagreed and called every bad name in the book. I get it. You hate people who don't agree with you and are from a state as red as texas. Im not a liberal. Im as centered as you get. I encourage you to browse through my comments and all of the nasty responses I have received for voicing my opinion on matters. Some of me earliest posts were obnoxious but I've evolved over time and have actually changed opinions bases on diaries I've read here. I'm tired though of being slammed for trying to interject a thought though and will keep my mouth shut going forward. Take care.
