About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Follow Up - Encore - Solution To Doug's Billing Problem

As promised below are the responses from 2007 to the original posting repeated on July 17 regarding my billing problem.  You will see below two readers replied with what made sense to them.  There were many responses in 2007 I did not publish – in one a reader let me know she told her boss about my billing problem & asked for a raise to cover the fuel surcharge she incurred commuting to work & another responder did a complete constitutional analysis of Carol's solution to my billing problem.
To understand why the original billing-problem posting is my favorite please refer to Neal Boortz's regular commentary from his radio program & message on his blog - "Don't believe anything you read on this web page or, for that matter, anything you hear on The Neal Boortz Show unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your own satisfaction."  It is this same common sense standard I always encourage readers of RTE to use – questioning & commenting are how we all learn & I thank everyone who participates & contributes.
Admittedly the billing-problem posting was out of character – but really no more so than someone asking you to sign a petition to repeal the First Amendment commenting while you have pen in hand "I don't know where the Republicans think they have the right to say what they want to say."
Responses – Solution To Doug's Billing Problem - 2/26/07

Received more responses to my billing problem note than any other ever.  Shows what an alert group we have who cut right through the baloney. Below are two responses representative of the ones that got right to it. I won't show the ones who thought this was serious - if you did, read it again in light of the following two responses & also if you thought this was serious & still get your news from the hostile media use this as an example of why you shouldn't believe anything that doesn't make sense to you.

Response # 1 from the Historian

"what has fuel surcharge have to do with insurance;??? what has health care surcharge have to do with fuel???? somebody is pulling your leg."

Response # 2 from our SC Business Man

":-) There are times when a bit of levity is appreciated. We need more of them so we don't turn into Democratics (You know how they hate being called Democrats.)"
