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.

Gene Kelly Tap Dancing On Roller Skates

Over the winter I saw a live performance of Singin' In The Rain @ a local theatre with aspiring actors.  The lamppost scene still gets a standing ovation – a tribute to Gene Kelly's tremendous talent in the 1952 film.

  2. Enjoyed, sent it to my family - especially the young ones who have not seen any of the gifted old-timers. Really one-of-a-kind!!

  3. Yeah! But, can he read a teleprompter?
