That's me. Worked out fine as long as I avoided things like "organizations made up of 44 agencies" and well meaning people with good intentions. And especially people who claim to have all the answers but couldn't find their way out of a paper bag if they got stuck in one.

People like Tanesha knew doing or selling drugs was illegal but did it anyway then when they get busted for doing so want to cry that they shouldn't be labeled a ex felon. Tough shit lady you fucked up and now you pay the price for having done so. But all these felons think society needs to hop up and kiss their ass and give them preferential treatment. To that I say fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

Geezer Guy is a real brain trust, just a sideline quipster. These guys have and will always be around to amuse themselves. Never matured from their freshman high school days if they got that far. Very little vocabulary and content, absolutely no contribution to the discussion. More suited to grunts and ass picking.
