Lawrence "Liberal Larry" Chomstein was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Having grown up in the capitol of greed and decadence, I have a unique perspective on the conservative mind, if there is such a thing."
Larry cut his progressive teeth at UC Berkeley, where he majored in Greco-Roman Sexual Positions and Interpretive Clog Dancing. He obtained his Masters in Gender Studies at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where he organized the school's first Free Mumia March to a nearby Starbuck's.
In 2003, Larry travelled to Iraq where he volunteered as a human shield against the coming U.S. "shock and awe" campaign, but left shortly before the attacks to seek medical attention for severely burned testicles.
"Iraq under Saddam was a vibrant country, with wonderful people, but having one's gonads hooked up to a car-battery five hours a day was a cultural tradition this Ugly American was just too eurocentric to appreciate."
Larry now resides in the Seattle area where he works as a sales rep for a company that develops hemp clothing products.
"We have a whole line of underwear you can wear all day, then roll up and smoke that very evening."
Larry is not a communist, but believes in a "kinder, gentler, fair-market form of capitalism" in which the means of production and distribution of goods are controlled by the state.
Larry is single, but was up until recently engaged to be engaged to a beautiful young womyn who might or might not have been a member of the transgendered community.
