Today's interview is with Laura Long Collins of Survival Theory...
The panel is ready with their questions...
Who among us is not fit to survive?
Think of all the idiots that have to be saved from their own stupidity. Remember the 2 men who almost died last year after dueling with flourescent light tubes like they were lightsabres? Don't forget the old joke: "What are a redneck's last words before he dies? 'Hey ya'll! Watch this!'"
What is your favourite book?
It's usually the one that I just finished reading. I'm sure most of you would think that it would be about politics, but I prefer reading novels and reference books. I've been trying to finish Hyperspace by Michio Kaku for two years now so I guess that makes it my favorite by default.
Out of 100 opponents of the war on terror, how many are opposed to the war because George Bush is leading it but would support it if lead by Bill Clinton?
How about 60 or so. . . I figure about 40 of them would actually be true war opponents. Maybe 70/30. . .
What would Bill Clinton have done different than George Bush in the war on terror?
He would have had the FBI parade a few terrorists in front of us, let them stand trial, and said it was all over. Then it would be business as usual. Oh, he would have cut defense spending again since we'd all be safe then.
What was your worst day blogging?
I'd have to go with the days that I got threats because I posted pictures of the Duke Lacrosse players. Normally I wouldn't care, but knowing that those people lived in my immediate area made it a little scary.
What's your favorite passage of scripture?
I really don't have one.
Do you remember your first kiss?
Sadly yes. . . it was not a good experience. I was mortified. I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about.
Liberace or Elton John?
Sir Elton John of course
The Dixie Chicks or Melissa Ethridge?
Is silence an option? If I had to sit down and talk with them, I'd have to go with Melissa Ethridge. We could at least talk about her battle with cancer. I wouldn't talk to The Dixie Chicks about anything.
What's the most scary thing you've ever done?
I'm not a daredevil. I don't take physical risks. I did take a motorcycle to 130 mph once. (Yes I know, that was stupid.) That's the only time I've risked my life.
What do you disagree with George Bush about the most?
Immigration- I want the borders properly secured once and for all, with no amnesty for those who come here illegally and drain our social programs.
Name one Democrat you'd vote for president.
Um. . . find one who shares my views on national security, freedom, immigration, religion, and social services and I'll be able to answer this question.
Name one Republican you'd never vote for president.
I believe in religious freedom for all. Any politician who tries to impose his religious beliefs, or lack thereof, upon the rest of us will never get my support. I don't support those that want to impose morality laws, nor do I support those that try to oppress others' religious freedom.
Completer this sentence: The day Hillary Clinton becomes president, ____________ will roll over in his/her grave.
Who wouldn't be rolling in their grave?! Pick anyone who thinks women are weak. Pick anyone who thinks a woman shouldn't be Commander in Chief. Pick any conservative. Pick anyone who thinks she tries to play the race card to her constituents in NY even though she's white. Really, pick anyone.
Name one thing Tom Cruise is good for.
When the press is talking about Tom Cruise they can't talk about Paris Hilton, Brittney Spears, or Lindsay Lohan.
Who's the most underrated of all patriots of the American Revolution?
I have no idea, and wouldn't want to pretend that I do. I really don't know that many specifics about the American Revolution. Ask me in 20 years about the Second American Revolution and I'll have an answer for you.
What was your first car?
I had a hideous 15 year old Buick, that was primer grey. It was ugly but at least it ran.
In a Texas Death Match between Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, who'd win?
Britney of course. . . She's got that white trash/ redneck attitude. She could definitely take Paris. I'd actually order pay-per-view to watch that match.
Thanks to our favorite Survivor, Laura Long Collins, for taking the time to answer the questions.
Next week, we have Dr. Phat Tony and Jan Bussey (CascadeExposures) lined up. Those should be interesting, too.
