This isn't really a blog

I blogged at Born Again Redneck for six years and eventually realized that I had nothing more to say. I started this blog as a way to share stuff that I enjoyed with my buddies, Chuck and Andy. So, if anyone else stumbles over here, don't expect much commentary on politics and daily affairs. I got tired of saying the same thing for 6 years and it all boiled down to: "Most Democrats are insane. Half the Republicans are fools and there's a crook and a liar in the WH."

Why I hardly ever blog anymore

I'm too old. I've been there, done that and seen it all. Politics is predictable. Human nature is natural and the sky has been falling since Adam took the apple from Eve.

I prefer watching the paint peel off the side of my barn while I sit in my rocking-chair and observe the flow of the seasons and enjoy the simple but magical world that man has not created.

Why I left San Francisco after living there for 25 years

Sarah and the San Francisco Poster Wars by Ray Gross at American Thinker:
I am gay. I live in San Francisco. For the last few years I've had a terrible secret, one I felt necessary to hide from hateful and intolerant people. Who would these people be, and what am I hiding?

I am hiding from the Liberal Left. I am hiding that I'm a conservative.

Gay people are used to feeling the fear of backlash and intolerance. It's been a common theme for me, and I hid being gay for a good part of my life because of that fear.

But here I am, hiding again, hiding from those who have been telling me my whole life that they are the tolerant, loving and accepting ones. And I believed them, joining them in pinning the labels of hate and intolerance on the political right.

Now I fear them. They are not tolerant or accepting. They accuse others of hate and intolerance and yet, by their behavior they show themselves again and again to be the hypocrites they are. They are incapable of seeing the irony of the situation; that those who preach "tolerance" are intolerant, and those who champion "love" exude hate.

Like Pavlov's dog they are trained by the left and the liberal media to salivate at the mere mention of the words "conservative" "Republican," "right," "Christian," and "Bush". Now, they have a new favorite victim for their hate and intolerance, Sarah Palin.
The rest of the article is quite an eye-opener.
