Since Jul 12, 1999
Hi! My name is Bill. I just turned 30 and I started freeping before it was cool! Im a long time veteran of FR a lifelong resident of the Land o Lincoln (no its not Obamas home state, he moved here after getting out of law school and Ive never been to Kenya or Indonesia) .
I hold a B.A. in Film/Video from Columbia, with a minor in Interactive Media, and Im getting an additional A.A. certification in computer animation at the end of 2010. I create pamphlets and brochures, custom DVD & CD edits, artwork & illustrations, and Im currently self-employeed in freelance photo restoration and digital effects. Please visit my website at www.photoairbrushing.net if you need anything done with your treasured family pictures. Mention youre a freeper for a special discount! :-)
My demo reel is here .
Like Teddy Roosevelt, I dont believe in hyphenated-Americanism. In terms of ancestry Im a good German/Italian/Scot-Irish/English/Dutch/Indiginious Indian mix. More importantly, I am an AMERICAN ;-) My views are generally conservative, although I agree with Libertarians on many economy views. I am neither paleo-conservative or neo-conservative. Im religious but I am not a member of the religious right and I do not support candidates on the basis of who my pastor supports or what position my church takes. I am a traditional conservative on facebook I call myself a Calvin Coolidge Republican because I think was the President closest to my own views, with Ronald Reagan a close second. I am a card-carrying member of my local township Republican organization, as well as a Republican precinct captain, but I have never voted a straight party ticket in my life and I never will. In short, I consider myself American first, conservative second, and Republican third.
My senior Senator is BIG DICK Durbin. My Congressman is the great Bobby black panther Rush My commissioner on the county board is former doo-wop singer Jerry Iceman Butler, who gave us the highest sales tax in the nation and lives nowhere near me because hes from the lakefront on the eastern edge of the city. Although the local region *I* live in is controlled by Republicans, Im gerrymandered into safe Democrat districts and given Chicago goons as my representation. Since they ignore suburban constituents, I basically have no voice on the county or federal level. My elected officials are probably guaranteed to be re-elected even if 100% of my town voted against them. And you thought YOU had bad representation in government?
I urge all good freepers to excise your right to VOTE! America is a democratic republic (sorry all you freepers who argue with the dictionary definition and believe "we're not a democracy", you're wrong). People in other nations die for the right to vote. Chicago Democrats, despite their party name, are notorious UNdemocratic and have installed a one-party monarcy. It's up to us to combat DemonRat voter fraud and hold our government accountable.
MY RECOMMENDATED CHOICES FOR THE NOVEMER 2010 ELECTION
I've also decided to start keeping track of all the threads I create. Here's some for starters (more will be added later):
NADER DEFEATS DEMOCRATIC MACHINE IN ILLINOIS!
Dick Durbin's re-election FAR from certain
A Moses for GOP conservatives
Durbin lacks the profile of a winner
A long time ago, in a period far, far, away... Illinois had REAL Governors:
Abraham Lincoln, Calvin Coolidge, and Ronald Reagan
And two of those called my state home-
"The Pope is against your war, Mr. Bush! The Pope! He says it's a SIN. Once you've got the Pope against you, you're through. "
-- Michael Moore
"When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, we will stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life. The most important case involving the first commandment of You shall not kill is when it refers to innocent human beings. This is especially so when it refers to defenseless, weak, human beings such as an unborn child or infant. The taking of an innocent life, especially at its beginning or end, is gravely immoral. This direct and voluntary action will always be regarded as morally evil and can never be considered as necessary, either as an end, or as means to a good end".
-- Pope John Paul II
"Now [it's] twice as hard for a woman in America to obtain an abortion as it was when Clinton took office. Gore believes in a womans right to choose, and Bush does not. Doctors are so scared for their lives because of anti-abortion terrorists, that in 86% of the counties in the United States a woman can't get an abortion. The real issue with abortion is that under Clinton/Gore, they have not PROSECUTED the anti-abortion terrorists the way that they SHOULD have."
-- Michael "hypocrite" Moore
PETER G. FITZGERALD, U.S. SENATOR FROM ILLINOIS, 1999-2005
You will be missed, Senator. Our best leader since Ev Dirksen!
Have you meet the Dixiecrats Icon?
"MIDWESTERNER BY BIRTH, AMERICAN BY THE GRACE OF GOD"
