First, call me Dan.
Second, I’m a horrible speller. It goes with the whole moron-hood thing. I try not to be. Spell check doesn’t catch everything, especially homophones; and misspelled words are not written in neon for me as they are for some… but I do catch them sometimes much later. Point them out if you wish, or just look past them. The main thing I ask is that they not be a distraction.
And finally a little about my perspective. The lens through which I see the world is tinted with a Christian, Reformed, conservative, free-market, personal-responsibility, private-property, compassionate, patriotic and freedom loving color. This is not the result of brainwashing–although how would I know if it were–but rather the study of Biblical scripture, society, history and economic thinkers. I am malleable I hope; that is my mind can be changed if I’ve been given sufficient reason to change it beyond mere feelings. I am not rich, nor do I begrudge those who are. I do not believe that rich people are crooks, nor that they owe me or the world a free ride. Nor do I think that poor people are saints. I do not believe that anyone deserves anything from his fellow man except the honor and respect due all men from all men as they make their way in this world.
I see this world as a harsh place because… well it is. It is an unfair–at least by man’s standards–and unforgiving place to exist. This means, among other things, that there is always going to be disparities in wealth despite who you vote for, what part of the planet you live on, or what regime governs your affairs. I don’t believe that anyone outside of your own sphere of friends and family gives a rip about you and your economic well being; and this especially goes for ALL politicians, especially those who are good, trustworthy and excellent.
