True American Hero – Rep. Allen West

I first heard Congressman Allen West about a year ago when he was a guest on a local talk radio show.  In an election year it might not be too surprising to have someone running for office appearing, but the show originates from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Rep. West was running for office in Florida.  The radio hosts; Quinn and Rose, were enamored by West and I soon shared their enthusiasm.  His matter-of-fact style and forthright message is, unfortunately, refreshing.  It’s only unfortunate that an elected official (he won!) is so open and honest; that he is the exception rather than the rule.  Even the politicians that I like often seem to care too much about appearing civil when confronting the other side. 

Bumper Stickers

Every once in a while I am sent an interesting e-mail and I would like to share some of the content.  I have hesitated as I kind of feel like it is cheating, but recently I was sent several that contained bumper stickers.  They are political and do not reflect positively on our current President, but they are still funny.  I hope that you enjoy them and feel free to pass them along.

Conservative Environmentalist – Oxymoron?

I have an internal dispute raging inside myself.  OK, there is not actually any rage, but two of my core beliefs are often at odds.  I am a conservative and an environmentalist.  Most people that I encounter assume that since I work for an environmental agency I must be a liberal…wrong.  I really do not think that these beliefs are at odds for the most part.
