Who is Joe Kulpa
You are correct if you think that little guy off to the left is me. That's me as a boy at the beach. I have come a long way since then, and moved a long way from the beach. I currently reside in Denver, CO and it sure is interesting living here, to say the least. In addition to all that Colorado provides on its own, it is a true melting pot containing great populations originating from Michigan & Wisconsin, California, and the Mid-Atlantic regions. While my original home, North Carolina, also had populations form other areas, they were mostly from north or south, along the coast. In Denver, the disparities become much greater when combining those from both different coasts, as well as those who live in the middle.
Lets start with the button-pusher... I have what I would think to be is a centric to moderately conservative political view. I believe that women should be given their choice in abortion and that homosexuals should be able to get married. I also believe in the 2nd Amendment, and that it is there to protect the citizens from a tyrannical government, and keep the government in check knowing the citizens have the ability to rebel. Most of my philosophies align with that of a Libertarian, except for the fact that the government and military should be strong forces in the world. I don't think we should give handouts to other countries or provide free protection, but we need to be a force to be reckoned with, both in peace and in war.
I am also an abrasive person, I say things bluntly, and to the point. Its not that I necessarily try to hurt anyone's feelings, but I also don't tread lightly worrying if I will. As a child, I was taught a phrase that I'm sure everyone has heard, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."
