Personal / Bio
I am a liberal independent, I am registered to vote as an independent. I put this here because a few people with very little brains asked me why I do not admit I am a liberal. Besides the fact I have mentioned it a million times on the message board, it is pretty clear I am a liberal when you read the website. I voted for Ralph Nader in 2000, but now that I see what a republican president is doing to america, I will vote democrat in 2004.
I am 43 years old and single. I went to work for a Fortune 500 union printing factory called International Paper, I was hired right out of high school in 1978. I started as an entry level finisher, and quickly worked my way up through the lines of job progression. Within 5 years I was a top paid Journeyman Cutter.
I ran a computerized strip cutter from germany called a Blumer strip cutter, a computerized Lawson straightknife cutting machine, and a Lawson brackett cutting machine. I cut labels like campbells soup, hi-c, v-8, progresso, green giant, etc. In my 12 years of cutting labels with 1/64th to 1/32nd tolerances, I only had one job rejected due to cutting errors. I also trained all the new cutters, and set all the production records on every machine I worked on. When I quit in 1995 because of back problems, I still had the all time record of 5.2 million labels cut in one 10 hour shift.
My Grandfather and my Father both worked at and retired from the same company. I too thought I would retire from International Paper. In august of 1995 I had to quit my high paying job of 17 years due to back problems. Then 4 months later they closed the plant on 12-31-95 and sent all our work to a non-union plant in Bowling Green Kentucky.
Since then I have been making web sites and surfing the net. I have close to 6 years experience in building web sites and working on computers. I am a registered Independent, and always have been. I only got into politics about 4 or 5 years ago, since then I have become a news junkie and a political expert. I read 10 to 15 web sites a day, and watch all the news shows.
