So I decided to write a blog. You are probably here because you have been lured to my site by one of my very interesting and informative articles and have decided to join my legion of loyal followers. Or perhaps you are just really, really bored. In any case thank you for giving me your time instead of googleing “Why do white people…” or watching a Youtube video about the latest Flash Mob in Mumbai. I hope I didn’t just lose everyone to looking those two up.
Before you decide on leaving or continuing on let’s get to know a little bit more about me and the things you will be reading should you continue to follow my continuing downward spiral of a thought pattern.
I am a neo-traditionalist. I think that completely throwing away some of the old ways is wrong. Some of our best ideas have been around for a long time and aren’t quite ready to be thrown out just yet. I did say neo though so I want to see some evolution. Let’s see our old traditions evolve to fit a new era. I want to see change in many things, in our ideas and in the way we do things.
That’s a little intentionally vague. To get down to it, I am entrepreneur just getting started, I got married two weeks after high school and haven’t stopped since, did my time in the U.S. Marines and have been indelibly scarred with deep patriotism. Getting my degree didn’t solve that. Though many young college students take that time to “realize” how our conservative capitalistic society is evil, the real world had already gotten to me. I like our way of life and the society that makes it possible. I am a Christian of Southern Baptist background, but disagree with many of the viewpoints that my fellow Christians have developed over time. If I identify usually with a political party it is Republican, but I see myself as a Libertarian. That doesn’t mean I think any one group is always right. I think education is one of the most important legacies we can pass on. I wish for everyone to get their finances in order and my wife coupons fantastically and I love her even more for it. I am a pretty big tech nerd. I am a bit of an insomniac and lastly I think too much. This is a deadly combination that has affected me in ways I will never escape, gave me time to come to some conclusions others don’t. Now I feel the uncontrollable need to share them with you.
So that is it in a nutshell. That little paragraph will probably sum up every post I make from here on out. Hopefully you will follow me and enjoy the trip.
