First and foremost, I'm an independent, which means I do not agree with either side of the political spectrum. There is some things I like from progressives and some things from conservatives. There is also things I detest from both sides. You will see me post stuff from both sides here. If you don't like it then leave. I used to be on the left but am much more in the center. I'm what you'd call a true Jeffersonion liberal, something neither side can seem to get right. That's also known as a classical or traditional liberal. I am also part of various communities. I'm disabled (blindness as the channel implies), I'm also part of the LGBTQ community, and I am mixed race. Even though I belong to these groups I disagree with them a great deal on many issues including ANTIFA/BLM/CRT. On the other hand as an atheist I disagree with the far right on their Christian nonsense. Probably my biggest right leaning views is freedom of speech, gun rights, and people taking reasonable personal responsibility for themselves. Also, probably my biggest left leaning views is mostly economic with civil libertarian social rights. That's something many may not like here. All I can say I'm a mix of both and that's what you'll find here. I'm the silent majority that isn't so silent.
I am (was) an internet specialist, one of the grandfathers of the BBS age, and a hobbyist ISP in the 90s serving 72 lines on a 56k FRAD. My wife and I love animals and we are active guardians trying to save as many critters as possible. Warning, I will sling honest four-letter expletives to express myself. I'm a Constitutional libertarian that believes God gives us our rights, NOT the government.
