I majored in English, but could never get it together enough to write anything of quality. So I ended up selling insurance for a living. I have written some things lately, but they are over-the-top and radical. The reason I am so full of rage is the same reason as the majority of Americans have been pissed off since 2000, (nuff said.) However, I find myself in a Bizzaro world, (above and beyond the one we currently live in), when I go off to work each day. I think it is best for business if you keep your politics and religion to yourself at work. I also just assumed that it was a good way to get fired, or at the least upset your customer base and loose business. Yet, on a daily basis, I am literally bombarded with right wing talking points and in your face political and evangelical lectures. It comes from employees and the employers alike. None of them loose their jobs. None of them are reprimanded. It doesn't even appear to hurt their business financially. Somehow I know that I would be "Dixie Chicked" if my opinions entered the workplace. So needless to say when I take pause to write something I release the teeth that have been knawing at my tongue on a daily basis and b*tch out loud as I begin to write. Below I have pasted a few short pieces I have written lately and I would hope, if you have the time, you could take the chance to review them. I am not looking for recognition and I am not vain enough to think it will totally inspire you. Although I do hope that at least one line or idea I have written about would give you some good ideas you haven't considered. As I said I am an insurance agent. I am also a husband and a father trying to support my family in a small town in Missouri. My brother-in-law is currently in the Missouri Army National Guard, and both of my little brothers are active duty Marines. Only the youngest, Steven, is currently serving in Iraq. I am part of the working class in America and also a multiple victim of George W. Bush's fascist New Roman Empire. Below are the rants of this pissed off American.
