Admiral Stockdale (google him, Zennials!) famously asked, “Who am I? Why am I here?” They’re good questions.
So who am I? What kind of blogging will I be doing? I’ve been around politics all my life. In my BabyGay™ days I was an activist and politico in Washington, D.C. working on Capitol Hill and for gay rights groups. Although my views have always been pro-liberty, pro-markets, and anti-communist it was easy to fall in line with DC groupthink, if only to get the free booze at cocktail parties. I hope to give the reader some perspectives that smash the accepted narratives that we’re bombarded with daily. No idea is too sacred to question vigorously, and disagreement will always be welcome.
I have a background in the western classics, a love of history, three cats, and a brilliant engineer husband of more than 12 years. These themes will probably show up in my writing, and you’ll hear a lot about history and the frame of reference it can bring to our modern (mis)fortunes. I can’t wait to get started! Thank you, Gay Patriot for this wonderful opportunity!
