I'm back, finally!

Welcome back!

I know it's been a while since I updated this space, but I've been busy, what with work, family and the election. Yes, Obama is the president-elect ..... a least for now.

Tell you a little about me .......

Male, libertarian-leaning, former Marine, Christian ....... that about sums it up. Married, two kids ...... happy. Can't get much better than that, unless I win the lottery.

I'm currently following Voxiversity II (see Vox Day's site) .... we're studying Murray Rothbard's study of the Great Depression. Rothbard is an Austrian economist, and it's pretty interesting. There's a reading assignment every week, followed by a quiz on Saturday (I'm holding on to an 80 avg). I'm learning a lot, even though it's fairly high-level theory (and despite never having taken economics).

Politically, I lean heavily towards the libertarians. Worked on Bill Frist's first campaign, and Sundquist's too. Became disillusioned with Republicans (Democrats, too), and have pretty consistently voted Libertarian in the last 3 or 4 elections. But don't expect any deep analysis of the political scene ..... I leave that to Vox, Hotair and Ace! And, yeah .... I'm disappointed that Obama won, and not just a little concerned.

Enough for now ..... got to get ready for Sunday dinner.

Later ........

The first post ..........

So here we are ........ my first blog post.

Ok, so I'm new to blogging; but then again, everyone is.

I'm not sure why I've started this blog ...... practical reasons? Just interested? Need to vent? We'll see ..........

The practical reasons - I need someplace to put 'things' that I need to remember. A friend gave me an old Palm Pilot, and I use it on occasion ...... my biggest challenge with it is remembering to take it with me!*

Right now, I'm following a couple of blogs ....... conservative blogs (since it's the election season right now). Vox Day, Hotair, Ace of Spades, and Rachel Lucas. All conservative (or farther right!) sites. Found Vox Day via, and found the others through his blog. Good stuff ........

Do I need to vent? Not sure, but at least I've got an outlet. This blog will be imperfect for a while (maybe longer) .... until I get more familiar with the interface and such. I'll also provide details about me as I go along.

Comments? I don't expect many (if any), since I don't envision this blog going anywhere except my own litle world, but then you never know.

That's all for now ........... more later!
