Hey, this is the beginning of a new blog that I introduce to the caring public. A look at my life through the Google Blogs and YouTube. As I share with you the experiences of living in Ohio.
I will introduce myself to the public right here.
My official YouTube profile - http://youtube.com/LILVOKA
Other social networks to follow me:
I am socially blogwards (a take on being socially awkward).
I keep fighting for what I believe in, regardless of what anyone says about me, I am here to make a difference.
I came to the conclusion that the American public is seriously uninformed about issues.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the economy, health care reform, subtle racism, partisan hacks are some the most controversial issues right now. Hopefully President Obama and Vice President Biden will mend the nation and heel the wounds of a hyper-partisan predecessor and the ilk that influences talk radio, the internet and corporate owned media.
Time and time again, I get criticized by those in an opposition. Usually it's the ones who don't post videos, or have little to no views on their own videos. But they want to criticize me, eh!
Well I am getting tired of it, as well as the supporters here who enjoy me explaining how I feel about the current situations in our country.
But with all hope and faith aside, here's what describes me.
I am socially and politically a moderate.
I can tolerate other races [White, Black, Arab-American, Hispanic/Latino American, Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander and/or other nationalities]. I am tolerant towards gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered.
I support civil rights, the gay rights movement, and want religion kept out of the public places.
I am against abortion. That's pro-life. Although I am not a woman, I never support the practice. However, I can't decide on the other person's decisions. I would rather avoid abortions with adoptions and proper training in sexual education.
I am supporter of gun owner rights. I am a strong believer in the right to bear arms. I am not ashamed of anyone holding their beliefs to carrying a legal weapon. The only control for a gun owner is self. Gun control should only apply to keeping them out of young children who are not properly trained to handle them.
Care about my community. Local residents seen my Tour of Poor Dayton. The motive for making these videos in which you see on this profile or my other profile at is pretty simple. Give a retrospective of what I see growing up in community that is hard hit by the loss of manufacturing, population decrease, crime and a loss of hometown feel.
I support the environment causes but to a certain. But oppose grassroots efforts to stop progress, that includes radicalism. I object to urban sprawl destroying our communities.
I don't trust the government, corporate owned media, religion, and divisive politics (and politicians). I am against war and meddling in the businesses of other countries.
I supported the Democratic Party in 2006, 2008 and will possibly support the national party in 2010 [if Republicans and the Right continue to chatter about Obama's intangible associations]. I am now registered an Independent.
Another thing: If I make any mistakes in presenting the video, please inform me by sending a message. I am not trying to be perfect in making videos, nor I am trying to be a "know-it-all"! I am just expressing my honest opinion about an issue and willing to correct the record if I was wrong about it. Besides, I am not a journalist or fact checker, I am an average guy with a camera!
