Here is my introduction onto this board. I go by CandySlice, not to be confused with Candycorn or any other nomenclature. That's an inside joke pertaining to the SHO series 'Dexter'. I'm a female living in Texas (more details to be released as I get to know you folkz) and an older party who has seen a lot. Like all females in Texas I am outspoken, loud at times and rarely shy. My comments are pithy and sometimes sharp and I do not suffer fools gladly. I love to talk politics, immigration, the Tea Party movement and, of late, conspiracy theories, most of which I consider hilarious. I like to bring a bit of gentle humor to a subject when I post even if it's sometimes inappropriate and I am not above apologizing when I've been a turd. My favorite quote of all times comes from the late great Bill Hicks who said:'Why are there never any good drug stories on the news? It's always about some guy who took LSD and jumped off a building. What if one day we heard this: Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration — that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death; life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves... Here's Tom with the weather!'
