About smokefyre

I am a teacher and a pet lover. I am very opinionated, particularly when it comes to politics. I am a liberal. I support gun control, equal opportunities for all people, senior citizen rights, rights of the poor, rights of children, rights of animals and freedom to live without fear. I believe in environmental protection. I oppose ideals which oppress people already oppressed. I feel that ALL people have rights, not just the rich and the noisy. I am single, live a very small town, but have lived in both Los Angeles and Chicago and prefer the city. I am from the town in which I now live, and chose to return to be closer to my family. I kayak and garden. My musical interests are varied, save country music because it holds no appeal to me. I believe in the Golden Rule, although I fear it is being ignored in favor of selfishness and greed. I am generous and support many causes that I believe help make people's lives better. My religious views are vague at this point in my life. I abhor those who feel that their religious views need to be shared by everyone else. My patriotism can be summed up by one phrase: Of the people, by the people and for the people...NOT of some people, for some people, and by some people.
