As big as the internet is, there is almost no place to speak up without being drown out by spammers, trolls, and people who have many words but few thoughts.
I decided the only way to have a voice was to claim my own outpost on the electronic frontier. Twenty First Summer is my refuge from the ridiculousness and screeds and vitriol flying around the internet. I am here to comment on important issues and encourage meaningful discussion on these issues. Reasonable, thinking people will find a haven here.
This is not a political, religious, or single-issue blog but loaded topics are not off the table and I do have my opinions. I am very libertarian (not the same as “liberal”), pro-God and pro-guns. I like pizza, Mexican food, Howard Stern, Big Bang Theory (the TV show), World War II documentaries, jazz, and heavy rock music. I love my country and think the United States is the greatest nation that has ever been or will be.
I am the middle of three kids; we grew up in a very loving home in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and I currently live in the upper Midwest, USA. I have college degrees in English and digital electronics, and work as an communications electronics technician for a telecomm company. My hobbies include amateur radio/electronics, cooking, pets, motorcycles, and shooting/firearms. I have been a strict vegetarian over 30 years.
I hope to make my peaceful little corner of the internet a place that is actually worth your time.
