Hello from South Dakota

It says to stop in and say hello and get adopted so here I am. I am basically a skeptic, but I do consider some conspiracy theories legit. I am an atheist, but I am not hostile to spirituality. I am not White or Black or Hispanic or Asian but a breed Lakota, which means I am not even an Indian, so there aren't going to be a lot of people who can identify with me. On the politcal spectrum I am a left-leaning Libertarian, what Penn Jillette deems an anarcho-capitalist. I like sports, particularly baseball and boxing and NASCAR but I agree with Mencken that our culture is basically pedagogue duped which sand-bags our intellectual vitality. I like reading Parenti, and Pilger but Chomsky's style puts me to sleep. My favorite book of all time is Cat's Cradle by Vonnegut, folowed by Puddin' Head Wilson by Twain. I am probably older than your house but nowhere near as old as dirt, and I am not shy about pointing out that Hillary Clinton has fat ankles. I majored in Sociology, minored in BA, and worked for some time as a journalist and I got a nice gal and we call each other "Buddy," and we got three devilshly handsome boys and an ugly stupid dog. I figure I read 10,000 comic books when I was a kid, smoked too much pot, got in too many scuffles, but managed to stay out of prison even though I was raised in an Indian ghetto and come from a rez with one of the highest murder rates in the USA. There's a lot more but I don't feel like pouring all of my soul into one post. This one's past 2500 characters and 4000 is the max, so the post is half full, not half empty.

If there are any interested adopters I would greatly appreciate it.
