So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Introduction to the Blog

2009 was an extraordinary year, both for me and for my country.

As for me, I was rocked by something that had never happened to me before as an adult. I lost my job. This blog will not be about that personal experience. Losing my job is purely incidental to the birth of this blog. I am, after all, one of many who have recently experienced job loss – perhaps 1 in 5 of all Americans by some measures. I fully expect to land on my feet and anticipate 2010 will be a much better year for me personally. This blog is not about me.

This blog will be my way of organizing my thoughts on the extraordinary and historical American political trends that began in 2009, and seem poised to come to a head in the years 2010 – 2012. I will use it to make occasional postings on the current events of the day, with a particular focus on fitting them into what I consider to be at the core of contemporary American politics – quite simply the popular understanding of Liberty and Constitutional Government.

The events of 2009 gave birth to the idea of maintaining this blog. It is not in my nature to use social networking media, at least not in the way it is typically used. It seems to me the assumptions underpinning everyone tweeting what they had for lunch today might be appealing to extroverts. I am, however, an introvert. I don’t care what you had for lunch today, and it is none of your business what I had for lunch.

However, “web 2.0” technology certainly does afford anybody the possibility of reaching anybody else with information and personal opinion that can affect general opinion. It seems to me this is a powerful modern tool for Liberty and Constitutional Government, and I intend to use it throughout 2010, maybe beyond.
