Just a few quick words of explanation; my family is still very much embroiled in a health issue which takes a lot of time and demands a positive attitude - which is somewhat harder to maintain when I'm keeping a close eye on the ever-depressing news and worrying about what Obamacare is about to do to my family. Without lube.
And while the work I do on Hope n' Change is satisfying and is maybe even developing a little reach, I've got to weigh whether it's the best use of my time and energies right now when it comes to my family - especially as I might be able to turn that time and energy into entrepreneurial profit-making ventures (which, in its own way, is a good way to piss off Obama!)
I haven't made up my mind - I'm just buying myself a little time to think. I can already tell you that my voice and perspective won't be silenced and I won't disappear. And I can also tell you that the camaraderie and wise voices (decidedly not my own) on this site mean the world to me. Hope n' Change has become a community that I wish more conservatives would listen to, for wisdom, moderation, and humor. And you wonderful folks lift my spirits on a daily basis.
SOoooo, let's look at this as a short "Labor Day" vacation during which I can gather my thoughts and sort my priorities. And maybe grill some hotdogs and have a cold beer beneath the soothing, healing shade of an American flag. -Stilton
