Rantings and remarks on different political things. I’m not a member of any political organizations or political parties, but to make things easier in the name-calling, I’m a Libertarian.

This is short, sweet, and to the point. I have poorly thought out, weak, and unqualified opinions on gun control. But there are views on guns which match my own, but they’ve been formulated by someone who did think them through,who  presents strong arguments, and comes with excellent credentials.  Larry Correia is a highly experienced

When the shootings in Aurora happened, I stirred up enough trouble with an angry midnight rant and the unexpected attention that I hoped not to say anything else on the subject. But..I can’t help it.

But when it becomes harmful and dangerous to the business, I don’t think that it’s okay to just cough up the phrase, “that’s Office Politics for ya. Take it or leave it.” If someone tells me just to take it, I think I’d rather lead it, than leave it.
