Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
I'm listening to Yo-Yo Ma and friends play a stirring arrangement of Copeland on the Capitol steps... and I look at the clock and realize we don't have a President. Article 20 says the President's term ends at noon. It's 12:03 Eastern Time, and Barack Hussein Obama still hasn't sworn the oath. Imagine that—for one brief moment, America has no President.
