Thanks, David. And I hope no one thinks I’m asking for help. I just thought it was important on INDEPENDENCE DAY to point out how our government has set so many up to fail at being independent.

I have an education, and ambition and drive and I may have a chance at one day living more than a hand to mouth existence. A lot of women have it way worse than I do. A lot of men, too. Anyone with a checkered past is screwed, no matter what the offense, or circumstances. No matter how much time has passed or how the individual has rehabilitated himself, that person will never get his life on track again.

We kick people when they’re down.

It’s unconscionable.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
