Hello world!

Once upon a time…  I used to have a blog where I talked about politics and social issues, then the most amazing thing in the world happened… George W. Bush left office.  I stopped blogging around that time, and really stopped paying attention to a lot of the news.

Recently I’ve come out of this social coma a bit.  The pending 2016 U.S. Presidential election… man… the noise machine woke me from my slumber.  I often find myself with something to say about the goings on in the world, but things are different now.  Back in the day I had the blog.  Now with Facebook and how social media has evolved since 2008, I find myself at too much risk of offending people I know.

So this space is for me, where I can talk without pissing off my circle of friends.  I have many types of friends, all over the spectrum, and while some are closer than others, I really don’t want to alienate anyone.

I’ll go into more later, but this will do for now.

Night folks!
