Welcome to Political Yen/Yang.
I am new to the the blog world, but I have posted on aol message boards for several years, under the name LASunsett. This is an intriguing medium of communication and is enjoying a significant success, after bloggers were credited with being the spark that ignited the whole Rathergate controversy. This is certainly a communication tool that gauges the pulses, of those that are a part of this ever growing high tech world and only stands to gain more popularity, in the coming years.
For this reason I have decided to join the ranks of anonymous posters that do not seek fame and fortune, but rather enjoy a good debate with like minded people, regardless of political affiliation and regardless of ideology. I hope all that read my posts will enjoy reading some thought provoking pieces. You may agree with them or you may not.
My objective is not to convert anyone to any beliefs I may hold. My objectives are:
1. To provoke others to think for themselves in a fair and objective manner, free from partisanship.
2. To learn from those that choose to participate.
(But partisans are certainly welcome to comment, if they feel inclined to. I only ask that you present your comments and arguments in an intelligent fashion, without personal insults. The same courtesy will be afforded to all that do.)
In the coming days, I will post some thought provoking commentaries on issues of the day, as well as some events and issues of the past that have affected where we are today, and where we want to go. We cannot effectively gauge the future if we do not understand where we have been and where we are today. All events past and present have meaning and many times they can give us a foundation, for understanding how to successfully navigate the future.
So, once again, welcome to Political Yen/Yang. I hope you enjoy your experience, visit often, and tell your friends about this blog.
