Third Time's A Charm

I figured I'd go ahead and try this whole blogging thing one more time...I mean...I'm sure if you throw enough substances up against a wall enough times, eventually something is going to stick, right? All I can really do is hold on, start writing, and keep writing.

So many times, success is just a matter of not knowing when to quit. The only way you can ever really fail is by ceasing to try. And, when you really stop to think about it, that is a large part of what separates "us" from "them". Theirs is the philosophy of having been beaten before ever attempting. The "I can't." that drives them to demand sacrifice from others because they think they need it to survive. The hopelessness that causes them to rationalize killing and fight to keep it legal. The beaten-down notion that just because things are so very hard now, they will never have anything like what so-and-so has, so it must be taken by force and given to them in the name of "paying your fair share".

So, here is my attempt. It's not the first, and it certainly will not be the last. I will write, and do so on a schedule, and some of it will be relevant and wise, a portion inane or outrageous, and a bit will just be plain filler (like this post). But hey, at least I'm trying.

Happy New Year! I hope it's as great for anyone reading this as it has been for my family and I thus far.


  1. VERY glad to see you blogging again-you have a lot to say that the world needs to hear. I'll be a regular here.

  2. Thanks for your support! I'm getting ready for a blog post tomorrow as a per-cursor to my BIG post for the 22nd. I think it'll be a decent lead-in, because I just can't ever STOP telling the story of my daughter. I never will.

    And, I know things are going to be a little abortion-heavy and lopsided at least until after this month is over, but I can't help it, because for personal reasons, this tends to be where my conservative activism really comes out full-force.

  3. Looking forward to your first article!
