Fully realizing the essentially complete futility of the effort, I take keyboard in hand to record my musing on the state of the world; why it is the way it is; the possibility of changing the way it is for the better; and more realistically the possibility of the minority that wants to live free being able to do so, even though it is a minority. That might seem to be setting my sights high, but one can never hit any higher than one aims. Why set limits? My ability should be limit enough. I will post mostly commentary on the above topics and links to articles I would wish someone had sent me, if I had missed them.
I certainly don’t expect multitude of followers, although that would be acceptable, but I have a cadre of friends, family, and acquaintances that may read it. The nice thing about writing, as opposed to speaking, is that you can’t be interrupted. Besides, nothing orders your thoughts like putting them on paper — or on the Internet. I just want to be an idea provider, and hopefully a leader or few, with the necessary stamina will handle the implementation. .
The above was the initial post in my first sally into the blogosphere on August 18, 2016, via Wordpress. While Wordpress makes posting easy, I was unhappy with it and closed down. Finding a more independent way of going online, I decided to set forth again writing my own pages, and here I am, for what it's worth.
