After years of a mediocre online presence I have grown sick of myself.  I don’t think it’s related to what I write, what I post, my political leanings or any of those common topics that make an online persona what it is.  I don’t think it’s my online persona per se.  I am just sick of myself, in all areas of my life, online and off.  So, with some hesitation I will be removing all of my various blogs over the next few days to weeks.  I may re-emerge in some manifestation but at this point I could not tell you what that manifestation will be.  I blame recent life events for this identity crisis, as I’ve labeled it.  I no longer really know who I am or who I want to or should be.  Some things will never change and that is my dedication as a father.  I will always love my children with all of my heart and will never cease to be everything that they deserve.  To be honest, my children are, what I consider to be, my one saving grace.  Loving them, and being loved by them, has made some pretty tough situations survivable.  However, every other aspect of who I am is fair game. It’s time to make a change, for better or worse. I don’t really know if anyone reads this blog anymore but if there are any passers by, farewell…  Thanks for stopping by.  Maybe our paths will cross elsewhere in the future.

Seriously? One day into retirement and Barney Frank is throwing his hat back into the political arena. This is what is wrong with US politics today. Individuals like Mr. Frank think politics is a career, as opposed to public service. It’s time for some new insight with regards to the “fiscal cliff” and the state of the US economy. Putting Frank back in the game will just ensure that the same old, stale ideas are rehashed over and over again. It’s time to let some new minds “take the helm.”

My wife posted this video on her facebook page.  I think it is amazing and wonderful.  Our soldiers are amazing men and women who put their lives on the line everyday so that we may enjoy our freedom and our way of life.  I can’t say enough about them or about this video but I am certainly going to try and communicate my respect for them through my writing on this blog.  This video makes me think and feel so many things.  So many things that I can’t even put into words yet.  What I do know is that each and every one of them deserves the warm and loving reception they received from their loved ones.
