NAME: Tenia Sheeley
POLITICAL AFFILIATION: Republican
HOBBIES: Reading, volunteering at my son's school, working with my son on school work and games with him, cross stitch, music, board/card games, sports (basketball and football are my fav's), working on my web pages, Internet,
POLITICAL PET PEEVE: The excuses liberals come up with to make themselves blameless in any event.
POLITICIANS I'D VOTE FOR AGAIN: Wayne Allard (Sen. CO), Bill Owens (Gov. CO) I really haven't voted that much. Only been able to vote for 7 years and for the first part of my adult life, I was just learning where my political views lied, and what the difference was between democrat/liberal and republican/conservative.
FAVORITE MOVIE: Anything that Adam Sandler has made, especially his new "The Waterboy"!!
BOOKS I RECOMMEND: Books by: John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koontz, Steve Martini, Steven King, Rush Limbaugh's two books.
FAVORITE MUSIC: ROCK!! Metallica, Queensryche, Led Zepplin, Creed, 80's music, hair bands of the 80's and early 90's, and most music of today.
MY ASPIRATIONS: To be the best mother my son could ever have, and a wonderful wife to my husband. And, with my volunteering, hopefully being able to touch at least one child's life. (I volunteer about 10 hours or more a week!)
MY TAKE ON ABORTION: I hate it, it sickens me. Killing children is not right. Putting the lives of women in danger is not right. AT ALL!!
MY TAKE ON CONSERVATISM: Well, I believe I am conservative in just about every aspect. I believe in the conservative movement...less government, abolish abortions. I don't agree with Clinton!! :) I believe that we are all individuals and should be treated as such, not grouped into one category, which liberals tend to do. (Government run Healthcare for example) I believe that the government should NOT be as active in our lives as it are. I am a conservative female. Happy to be one!!
ROLE MODELS & HEROS: Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, John Elway (he just won the super bowl for CO!!) Madonna (always liked her since childhood!), that's all I can think of right now.
I am a handicapped woman (I have had MS for 10 years), but I am not your typical handicapped person. The one's I have come in contact with, in support groups..etc., are all very depressed. They sit and stew about why they got their disease, they are so depressed, they are not getting better, to me at least, by sitting and worrying about their illness. I take the completely opposite view. I am very aware of my condition, but there isn't anything I can do about it to correct it, so no need to worry or stress over it. I do as much as I can medically, and Christian wise (praying to God every night) but past that, there isn't much else I can do, so I live the best life I can, be the best person I can be, be happy with life. We only live once...right?!?!?! It just bothers me when I see other handicapped people, and non-handicapped people, tell me what I should and should not do with my life. I figure, as long as I am doing what I should medically, then there is no reason to sit and be depressed over what has happened to me. I am no different than anyone else, well, except I can't walk as good!! :-)
