.....And Bf with three teen boys went to ACL-Live at the Moody Theater to see Slayer with special Guests Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus last night. I know, I should know better than to expose impressionable young men with bands like this but i was once that teen boy too. Skate boards, and thrash metal are a right of passage. Two of these teen boys spend their free time jamming in my game room, one on bass and the other on guitar. Their musical interests are much broader at their age then i…

What states have the worst income inequality?  Jobs sent overseas is destroying the country. Republican Congress men and Congress Women have been blocking all attempts to stop paying tax deferments to Corporations who send jobs overseas.  First Company who got super rich off of this was Mitt Romney's.

Do not get payed enough to survive.
