I'm back. I have no excuse, as my good buddies have churned away for years and are now retiring from posting, I have decided I will return to posting, something I haven't done regularly in years.
"Jersey McJones" was a moniker I picked out of thin air on the Hannity board back in the very early 2000's, when I first started blogging, mostly against the war and the then-GOP One Party State. ANYONE REMEMBER THAT? Anyways... The "Darths" as they were known back then (co-opting the negative connotation liberals had ascribed to Dick Cheney), kicked me off. So I went through a bunch of other monikers, and kept getting kicked off, so I moved on, but I took Jersey McJones with me. It was the name the Darths all knew me by. Jersey McJones was banned again, this time by Gillespie over at Hit 'n Run. So much for Reason. The Confederate Yankee even tried to get me in trouble at my work, until my IT buddies stepped in and put a quick stop to that sleaziness.
For many years now, I have only commented, and only on a few blogs that I like (see the listed). One's I mainly agree with, I read, but rarely if ever comment. They're there more for your perusal. I prefer to debate. And Lord knows we have a lot to debate about.
First let me say, I am glad Donald Trump won the election. He has already mobilized more popular support for the Left than Bernie Sanders to the tenth. I am not glad to see the GOP back in charge of literally everything. If their main complaint is that government doesn't work, than perhaps it is they who are making that so, for it is they who have been the majority party at the local, state, and federal level for decades now. It is no coincidence, in my anything but humble opinion, that the country has been in the doldrums ever since. Now they have even more power. How badly will they use it? What about Trump? What happens when they fail spectacularly?
So let's start off like that. I'll deck out the page more in coming days.
