Are you for or against abortion?
I admit, I'm not personally fond of the idea--I'm a father, and I love my kids. I'm damned glad Lili chose to keep our daughter, though it would probably have been easier for her not to. I have not been a good father, I know it, but I love my kids. And I'm working on fixing that last.

On a more theoretical note?

For it. For one thing, it's not my choice, it's the choice of the woman involved. And there are plenty of women, in plenty of circumstances, for whom raising children would be damn near an impossibility, and they shouldn't be forced to do so. No matter if it's because she already has children, because she believes she would be a bad parent, because she's pregnant not by her choice, because she knows she can't support a child for whatever reason... no-one should be forced into carrying a child that she doesn't want. We're damn overpopulated already, why make it worse?

That simple. Disagree with me?

There're a few women I'd love to introduce you to.

Would the United States fall with a woman president?
*snorts* Not hardly. Any woman running in that kind of political circles is already tough enough, stubborn enough, and practical enough to do just fine.

Do you believe in the death penalty?
Asking an assassin if he believes in the death penalty. That has to be somewhere in the definition of irony, doesn't it?

Yes, I do--I'd say that was fairly obvious, given my history. Yes, I know I'd be up for it was anyone able to prove my kills. There's a reason I don't do that work in the States anymore. I have a family to guard again. So would a great number of the people I've killed over the years. I do have standards. But they weren't and I'm not.

Do I think the system's broken? Hell yes.

Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Yes, damnit. Make it legal, make it taxable, impose quality standards on it and save the taxpayers the cost of housing everyone they lock up because of it. Seems a hell of a lot more sensible than the foolishness we currently have.

I make a decent profit running against the drug trade, but those weren't asked about.

Do you believe in God?
As Snake put it, "God can go to hell."

Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Yes. Any questions?

Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are moving to the USA?
No. Should they be doing it legally? Yes.

A twelve year old girl has a baby...should she keep it?
Where in the world?

In the US, most of Europe? Hell, no. How is a twelve-year old going to be able to support a child? Only by asking the new grandparents to help, in most cases, and how is that right? And to side with Snake, in most countries the man responsible needs to be beaten to death, given that it probably wasn't another child.

Now on the other side of things, I live in Kenya most of the time. Child engagement and marriage is still more common than I'd like, but that's the choice of their families and not something I'm going to poke my nose into. Their culture isn't mine.

Should the alcohol age be lowered to 18?
Old enough to go to war, to fight and maybe die, old enough to vote, and not old enough to have a drink? There's something wrong with that. Which, of course, I've been saying since my enlistment papers said I was eighteen.

But please don't start me on the law that created a national minimum drinking age by blackmailing the states. For that matter, don't start me on the government legislating private behavior. This's one place Europe often does it better, though that's disappearing as we speak.

Assisted suicide is you agree?

No-one ought to have to live longer than they want to. If the body's failing, or the mind's going to fail, why should anyone be forced to live in a body that's falling apart around them? Forced to place more of a burden on the people they love?

Illegal or not, I've been the hand once. It was a damn privilege.

Do you believe in spanking your children?
I was brought up on spare the rod and spoil the child. But it never did a damn bit of good for my opinion of my father, though my half-brother could've used a good bit more of it.

My kids are a good bit too old for the question to apply, but if somehow I wound up with another child (don't give me that look, Addie, it's a hypothetical), I probably wouldn't.

Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
Hell No. And I don't recommend anyone say yes around me.

A mother is declared innocent after murdering her 5 children in a temporary insanity case, do you agree?
Innocent? No. Anyone crazy enough to do that isn't going to get over being crazy. But then apparently, even the Joker's insanity isn't enough to keep him locked up, so why am I surprised that a jury would acquit a now-"distraught" mother?

Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
Why would I be? My family knows what I think, and the rest of the world can go to hell.

1 question...
1 chance...
1 honest answer...

That's all you get. Ask me one question. Any one question, anything, no matter how crazy it is. An honest answer. No catch.

All comments will be screened so your question stays private between you and me, and only you will get to see my answer to your question. But I dare you to repost this and see what people ask you.

ooc: obviously, they're not really screened, where's the fun in that?

questions )
sylph_fics: (Default)
As usual, this waste of time was borrowed from [ profile] _call_me_snake_.

The Personal:
If you could have chosen your own name: My name suits me. Possibly too well. I wonder if mother did it deliberately.
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: white
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 232 lbs
Ideal Weight: Apparently, this one. It's where I tend to stay barring lack of food for a while.
Best Feature: Do I seem the type to care?
Worst Feature(s): Physically? Probably the eye.
Zodiac Sign: ...why would I know? I was married by the time the "Age of Aquarius" began. I was born on the Ides of March, though, if you're truly curious.
US Presidential Candidate:So long as Luthor never makes it back into office, I don't much care. That disaster in Qurac, and then the frame-up for an attempted assassination was enough to convince me to stay away from politics.
Body Type: *shrug*
Ethnicity: Not something I've ever looked into a lot. Caucasian.
Believe in God: Do they exist, yes. Do they give a damn? Obviously not.
Want Kids: I have two living children, thanks to the Titans' ability to have the strange touch their lives, and I'm grateful for it. But I have never been a good father.
What Drugs are you on: None, and I much prefer to keep it that way.
Favorite Exercise: I get enough exercise with my job, though I'll admit Snake's answer had merit.
Fave TV Show: I'll watch whatever sports are on, but that's about it.
Fave Movie: *slow, wry smile* I think in this case, I have to say "I Was A Male War Bride".
Best Tip for not binging: For not what?
Fav Low Cal Meal: I'd be hungry again in about fifteen minutes. Sorry, no.

Have you ever:
Shoplifted: God, but Frannie tanned my hide for that.The lesson stuck (on me at least).
Been Arrested: Once or twice. Never my favorite experience.
Had Sex: I mentioned I had children, right?
Had Sex in a Public Place: Depending on what you're calling public, yes.
Made out or hooked up with a friends boyfriend/girlfriend:: Hell No.
Skinny Dipped: Yes
Had feelings for a married man/woman: What a question.
Tried to commit Suicide: What counts? I know I'm going to get back up.
Seen someone die: I really have to answer that? My business name is Terminator, after all.
Lost a parent/sibling: All of them.
Had an abortion: I'd quote Snake and say I'm the wrong gender to have to worry about that, but with some of the things in this insane reality..

Describe your ideal guy/girl
Build: Anyone who looks at my history knows I have a preference for women that can hand me my hide. So. Strong, fit.. but feminine.
Height: I don't care.
Eyes: I seem to have bad luck with green eyes, blue, though...
Hair: Long
Personality: Strong-willed, stubborn, dangerous, sarcastic... yes, I freely admit to having a type.
Job: I find myself agreeing with Snake again. "Not a cop"--yes, Wintergreen, I know Pat was. Look how that turned out. I ought to add "Not a hero", but the same would apply...

I See: too much.
I Feel: tired.
I Want: my doppelganger on the end of my sword. Preferably repeatedly.
I Need:
I Hate: any number of things. My double and the monkey are currently on the top of the list.
I Love: my family
I Like: my job, most days.
I Lust: (sorry, my kids read this. not answering).
I Cry: rarely.
I Eat: often enough.
I purge: (what, now?)
I Fear: this damned immortality.
I Wonder: when the Fates might consider the scale balanced.

From Call_Me_Snake and others, via this link, the numerology thing that's going around. )

Some pieces aren't far off, others... yeah. Right.
sylph_fics: (Default)
I'm going to describe myself in 6 words. Please respond to this message with your own 6 word description of me. Then post this in your own LJ and see if people can describe you in ONLY 6 words.

"Just a man with a job."
sylph_fics: (Default)
you are olivedrab

Your dominant hues are green and yellow. There's no doubt about the fact that you think with your head, but you don't want to be seen as boring and want people to know about your adventurous streak now and again.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.
the html color quiz

Well, I certainly spent enough time in it...

And that's not a bad summary, for some aspects of my personality at least...

I think it fits better than [ profile] _call_me_snake_'s, at the least.
