“What We Did Right” in the decade since 9/11: Another great Afterburner, thanks to Bill Whittle’s aptitude for placing events in Big Picture perspective:
An ex-Californian, I seek escape from culturally and economically stifling Progressivism and European-style “social democracy” to live and celebrate the classically American Way of Life — one founded in the optimism, initiative, entrepreneurship, boldness, achievement, cultural confidence, and love of Liberty that I grew up knowing and fell in love with.
I produce the “No Fear Pioneer” podcast, post daily on Twitter as kulak76, and frequent The Stratosphere Lounge and Bill Whittle’s site. I greatly enjoy Ricochet’s podcasts and discussion threads, and don't post there nearly often enough. I mostly publish here now and again, when I find the time and inspiration for semi-substantial writing.
