I did it, you can too!

I took up moonbatty on her challenge by offering three questions. One was serious, one was inane, and one was my favorite trivia question. You have to decide which is which.

'Course now I offer it to the first respondent:

01. Ask me 3 questions. Any 3, no matter how personal, private or random.

02. I have to answer them honestly. I have to answer them all.

03. In turn, you post this message in your own blog or journal and you have to answer the questions that are asked of you.

bring it on...

Edit. : If any more of you have questions, I will answer them also, under the same conditions.

1. least favorite -- property taxes, they are unfair and unjust, they punish success.
Favorite -- for the most part even the Dems are conservative!

2. 06/30/84 -- that makes 21 years, started dating when I ws a junior in High School.

3, Changes often, Lately I atarted on WWI. I have in the past been really into the Civil War, Vietnam, the Zulu Wars. My favorite in college was ancient history (the Amer History guys were hippies -- honest grad work at berkley from 68-70)

wow. you've been married longer than I've been alive. :-) I'll be 21 in November.

Ancient history was infiltrated by hippies at Purdue, I loathed it. My favorite so far is a tie between American Constitutional History and History of the Christian Church. Both were much more fascinating than I expected.

And I agree about property taxes. We're getting slammed up here by them. Bethelham Steel Co went belly up so our skyrocketed to pay for the new 7.5 million $ HS. It sucks

21 years, I never dreamed forever would last soooo long.

That is just a joke. Really. Honest, just a joke.

1. If you could reverse one mistake you've made in your life, which one would it be?

2. If a pro-life Democrat was running against a pro-choice Republican, which would you vote for?

3. Is there anything(s) you diverge from your political party on?

1) Biggest regret -- some of the really piss poor financial decisions I made in the past that continue to haunt me today. I also rgret not going to visit my Grandmother more before she died last spring. Not for my Grandmother, she would not have known, but it would have really pleased my mom.

2) While I am personally against abortion, I believe that the decision is between a woman and her God. I really struggle with this issue, but I think we have to accept reality. I have never based a voting decision on this issue -- You never thought this would be my answer did you?

3) There is much I disagree with my party -- the last several elections for me have been about the lesser of two evils -- none of the above has been my real choice. Reagan was the last candidate I really was behind by 100%. The Republicans have been worse than the Democrats lately when it comes to spending my money, and really the only thing GW and I agree on is a tough stance and aggressive pursuit of terrorists.
