I started co-blogging with Borepatch 4 years ago in June. Before that, it was Random Acts of Patriotism. I left it up in case I ever decided to revive it. Looking back, I like a lot of those early posts, I was more hopeful.
But today, it's 10 years since my first post. I looked it up. I think it stands up to the test of time.

Like a blank pad of paper. I don’t exactly know where this is going, and the one thing I’m sure of is that no one is reading it.
If you’re a liberal, planning to vote for B. H. Obama, think guns are a problem, think global warming is going to kill us all, or don’t eat meat because it’s mean to other species, this will not be the blog for you.
On the other hand, if you think the United States is still the greatest country on the planet, the Constitution means what the words say on the parchment, words like honor, freedom, commitment, and sacrifice stir you, the flag waving as the National Anthem is played brings you to your feet, and the Marine Corps Hymn still gives you goosebumps, bookmark this page and come back.
