    What areas do you obsess over, even feel passion about? What rises your ire & why?

      Mostly religion and spiritual matters.

      Nothing "raises my ire" too much.

            Almost everyone on HubPages know my obsession & passion:  I am for family planning & small families because I want children to have the best socioeconomic, cultural, & educational opportunities.  I don't want children to grow up in poverty & want, struggling for even the most simplest of necessities.  That shouldn't be.  I want everyone to have at least a middle class, comfortable life.   

            I believe in meritocracy i.e. those who have the most intellectual & educational qualifications to get the best possible job & get promoted in accordance to their innate abilities.  I am not a fan of the its who you know philosophy.  I am a pro-choice advocate although I am a strong proponent of sexual & reproductive responsibility.  I believe that each of us is accountable for our lives, good or bad, positive or negative.  I feel that it is so futile, if not immature, to blame outside sources for the state of the life a person makes.
            I classify myself as a Liberal Democrat although I believe that each, if physically, intellectually, mentally, & psychologically able, should pull his/her weight. Irresponsible, thoughtless behavior raises my ire.

      I obsess and am passionate about my writing and God.  Injustice raises my ire.  Injustice can include all the isms (ie:  racism, sexism, etc).  It includes bullying.  I cannot keep my mouth shut when I see injustice, even at times when it would be safer or better if I did.  I accept that life is not fair and injustice happens, but I feel the need to fight it any way I can.
