Good Morning America: Things Need to Change If They Are Going to Stay the Same

I thought it was a good idea to simplify my life and start posting under my real name. Part of the reason is that the world seems to be waking up to the reality of the Obama administration, and President Obama's own commitment to Marxist socialist thought.

Under these circumstances, it does not make sense to continue anything that makes my communications more difficult than they need to be. For a while, of course, I was sort of proud to be part of an American tradition of anonymous posting which dates back to the days of the American revolution. Accordingly, I'm a little sad to put the anonimity of Augustine 25 behind me. It's the end of a very short era. :)

I'm reminded of the story of how a top banker met with Napoleon and was pleased when he learned that Napoleon did not want to take away any of the deposed King's deposits. Napoleon made a clear distinction between business and politics. When the King returned to power, he put no pressure on the banker to confiscate Napoleon's wealth. In this spirit, I'll find fresh new ways to keep business separate from politics.

For those who do not know me, here's my official bio:
