I know I started this blog a couple years ago to be a political one. From June of 2010 to just a few days ago, I let this blog lie dormant. Part of the reason for this was because I had trouble thinking of current events and political issues to write about, especially since other people are usually quicker on the draw than I am. The other reason was that I had decided to move my political commentary to my RedState diary which I’ve had for much longer than this blog. Being part of a community like RedState makes it much easier to get feedback on the political posts of some random guy like me.
Of late, I have taken a greater interest in writing fiction, an old hobby of mine. Most of this is loosely based upon my college experiences, but I may branch out to other topics as well at some point. When I was looking for an option to publish online in a place where I had at least some control over who could access it, I realized I still had this blog sitting around, so I decided to post it here, with password protection while I’m still working out the kinks on the posts in question and deciding if I’m really ready for the world to see it.
At some point, I may just start a new blog for my writings and just leave this one dormant again, but for now, I’ll stay here. In the meantime, I welcome your feedback on my writings and your suggestions on what I ought to do about blogging (whether you think I ought to open a new site for my writings, for example). You can leave those thoughts on this post, in the comments sections of my already-posted stories, or through Twitter. If you’d like to read what I’ve written, particularly if you are a friend but I will consider anyone (though I do reserve the right to say “No” to anyone, friend or not), you can also request access here.
And please keep any insults related to my politics to yourselves, same goes for whining, but I’m pretty sure most everyone reading this is better than that. For my part, I make no apologies for what I believe, and I do my best to respect those who disagree with me.

I divide my time between Georgia’s 13th district and its 12th district, depending on whether I’m at home or in college. Unfortunately, I’m represented by Democrats, David Scott and John Barrow, respectively, in both districts. Since I’m registered to vote in the 12th district, I’ve been doing what I can to help the Republicans oust Barrow.

Courtesy of Smitty over at The Other McCain, we have this sobering chart from Americans for Prosperity chronicling 14 months of Constitutional Demolition.
A depressing read? Yeah, it sure is, and the trend towards an autocratic executive is very apparent through this chart. Congress opposes my will? Fine, who needs them?
According to the atheists and secularists out there, almost all of who happen to be Liberals, the conservatives of today are religious fanatics following a quasi-medieval theology. In their eyes, we “Christianists” are as much a threat to society as the radical Muslims are (in fact, to some the “Christianists” are an even greater threat).
This is why people like Rev. Pat Robertson do us no service when they say things like this:
