JUST A TAD ‘BOUT ME
I am your typical patriotic, small limited government, comma-happy, stream of consciousness conservative living in the heart of all that is blue, New York City. (Any of you who are so inclined are welcome to pray for me). I love New York, but I despise its liberalism.
I hang my hat in a little out-of-the-way enclave of Brooklyn, known as Gerritsen Beach. It is very un-Brooklyn-like and there are plenty of flags a-wavin.’ It’s a different world here.
I enjoy writing about everything from current events to the many ways one may prepare chicken marsala – although I am, admittedly, more apt to discuss the idiocy of modern liberalism than supper. (I should probably amend that a bit).
I am a political junkie who believes that well-intentioned liberals are the way they are because their common sense gene has taken a sabbatical. Perhaps it is something viral – or maybe something in the hard-wiring – but I don’t really know.
I adore baseball and have three walls of shelves full of New York Mets memorabilia. I am also a New York Jets fan. (I’m a glutton for punishment, yes?)
I cannot stand when people use Albert Einstein’s “definition” of insanity as a plausible and reasoned argument for anything that needs “changing.”
I truly believe whole-heartedly that the United States of America is, indeed, the last best hope of the world. With every atom of my makeup, I believe we are a noble and good nation. With equal fervor, I believe that no one does pastrami like Adelman’s on Kings Highway in Brooklyn, New York. (Their onion rings are also sensational).
I believe in small limited government, lower taxes, a strong military and vinyl still being the best way to listen to the Beatles.
I adore my wife, two daughters, sheep dog, cat (who thinks he’s a dog) and love a good cigar.
I hate it when people think I hate them because we may differ on given positions, e.g., I am against same-sex marriage so I must therefore hate gays.
And there is nothing wrong with hate – when directed correctly. I hate evil, for example.
