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.
