Welcome Legal Insurrection visitors! It was very nice of Professor Jacobsen to throw me that link. I used to be more of the red meat conservative, but my faith journey is leading me to a gentler line of blogging. I hope you find something worthwhile on my front page. I'd deeply appreciate feedback and comments if you've got the time. I blog to learn and as you know much more about so many things than I do, your comments are always illuminating.
My old and very dear friend Kelly the Little Black Dog is a progressive* who is unhappy with President Obama, having this to say in a discussion with me the comments.
We seem to live in different realities. You see him as this socialist Marxist. I, and many progressives, see him as right of Mitt Romney.Sincerely, I think President Obama was about the best the progressives could have hoped for, but apparently I'm wrong. Since most of my regulars are conservatives, it might be enlightening for all concerned to pop over to that post and put in your $0.02.
Devoid of rancor and anger, we might be able to learn something from each other about how we each see the world.
Kelly moderates his comments, so it might take a while for the conversation to develop. I'm still certain it's worthwhile for all concerned. Kelly is very smart, very well educated and as kind a person as you'd hope to meet. If you ever wanted to engage in a civil conversation with someone who didn't see eye-to-eye with you, he's your little black dog.
* - When I go off on progressives here, I wince a bit inside, knowing I'm taking a jab at my buddy. I certainly could use a little more prayer and allow a little more influence from the Holy Spirit before I write, of that I'm sure.
