The last few days have been nothing short of amazing here at ChicagoBoyz due to the work of Lex Green and the regognition it received on the Glenn Beck show. The posts and comments are some of the most insightful I have read in some time. Hopefully we will secure many of the new commenters for more sharing of knowledge in the future.
I am inspired and am learning a lot. I have learned that there seems to be a wave forming. A very large wave that may still be a long way away. It sort of reminds me of a vacation I just took to Michigan a few weeks ago. As I was enjoying a swim in the waters with my kids we would see a boat go by out in the distance. Several minutes later the wake from that boat would provide us with some waves to play on. Has America just seen the boat go by? I am not sure that I have seen it yet – because I live in Madison, Wisconsin.
For those who don’t know, Madison is one of the hardest liberal bastions in the nation. Imagine Berkley with snow. Here, it is the same old same old, from having lgbt counselors at the high schools to leftist marches on the state capitol. All the old “indian” names of the parks are being taken down in favor of more politically correct names (as an oddity, I believe that 50 years or so from now, the native American culture will be largely forgotten for this, but I digress). We still have stupid hippie communities. Didn’t think there were any of those left, did you?
On top of being relatively isolated from the fun (guess how much coverage the Beck rally got in our local media) I own my own business, am raising two kids, and all the rest. My plate is full. I want to help but don’t see how I can, besides sending money to those who have more time than myself. And that is what I plan to do. I would imagine that there are a lot of people like me that are super busy that may feel the same way. Am I wrong?
But there is a little good news. Ron Johnson is giving our senator Russ Feingold a real run for his senate seat and that is something I never thought I would see. I love this ad – even though Johnson is a Repuplican, he portrays himself as just a “guy”, not a politico – video.
I hope guys like Johnson won’t sell me out if they get elected and it won’t be the same ‘ol, same ‘ol in DC. From the looks of it I am thinking it won’t, but the glass will be half empty until I see the new wave in action.
