    I think you're a closet conservative / centrist with conservative tendencies.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I live my personal life pretty traditionally conservative.

    You, sir, are a success.
    Ignore what others say, these judgmental SOBs we do not need.
    And those who "grow plants" contribute far more to society than is realized.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Mega, personally I feel sorry for your friend. Sounds like he leads a shallow existence, imo.

    That pretty much describes the way I live. I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment currently, I can afford to move into a bigger 1 bedroom but when I look around my apartment I see no need to. I like space but I try to be an engineer about it, not too cramped but not overly roomy either.

    Maybe if thats how you would have said it the first time, but now you just look like a dick.

    I am the same way. I bought my current house when I was making 35k/yr and it was in line with the amount of rent I was paying at the time. Now I am making almost double that and my house payment is less than a third of one of my paychecks, which is really nice.
