Who am I?
Let’s start with who I’m not. I’m not a gay feminist liberal like a lot of bloggers on the net. I’m not even some perverted college student who just uses his site to get off on reading visitor chat. If you know anything about blogging, I’m sure you’ve seen your share of that kind of crap.
I’m just a guy with something to say about the world around me, so I’m putting it here. If you agree with my opinions, fine. If not, go somewhere else or get your own site. You are free to believe whatever you want. Just don’t waste my time with emails telling me how much you hate me because I really don’t care. (BTW, you will notice there are no email links or other contact info on this site.)
Social Baggage is guaranteed to offend someone somewhere. If it’s you, congratulations! You got your money’s worth.
A little bio information, now… I’m over 30. Married. One kid. Two cats.
When I started this site in July of 2000, we lived in Southwest Missouri. Back then, I had been working in a factory for a major corporation for about 6 years, but had a better life in mind.
I started developing websites in 1996 and found it came quite naturally to me. By the dawn of the new millennium, I was ready to make it a career. For six years, I worked freelance as my own company giving the moon to people for next to nothing.
In 2006, my family and I decided it was time for a change.Â We didn’t know what God had in store for us, but we trusted Him with our future and left Missouri without looking back.Â A month later, I was hired as a web developer for an advertising agency on Hilton Head Island, SC.Â My office is a mile from the beach.
Now I’m the Director of Web Development for that same company.
My family and I are actively involved in our church.Â We enjoy spending lots of time together, whether we’re playing on the beach or playing Guitar Hero.Â Our family believes strongly in the principle of “give and it shall be given unto you.” God has blessed us, so it is our privilege and responsibility to bless those around us.
I’m a conservative Christian political activist. I make no apologies for it. I believe Jesus Christ is the one true Son of God and that there is no other way to heaven except through Him. Abortion is wrong and prayer in school is right. My heroes are John Ashcroft, George W. Bush, King David and a man in his late 60’s with Down’s Syndrome who was never expected to live past his teens. These are all imperfect men (like me) who trusted God to work with them despite their failures.
Politically, I believe in freedom. I do not think it is the government’s job to take care of people. It is the government’s job to defend our borders, uphold the law and leave us alone. Income tax should be abolished and property tax is a crime against humanity. Oh, there’s a lot more to it than that, but it’s a good start on where I stand.
