So it is a good time to start working on this blog.

So with everything that is going on in the world and here in America, I think it is time that I start writing on here in Notes from Outpost 187. This is a blog about politics, foreign policy and social issue blog, and there is much to write about. For those who know me know I have opinions and thoughts  on a wide range of topics. I try my best to be thoughtful and take a Socratic approach to things. I also have a great interest in our world, and I want to share them with you all.  I am merely trying to add to the discussion and contribute to our democracy.

I also would love to hear your opinions and thoughts. Please try to thoughtful and polite, but if you can’t be, I forgive you.

I am a critic of the President, but there is a difference.

I am very critical of President Obama. He is the President of the United States and I am a progressive, so as you can see, I would have a lot to be critical of. He has made decisions, policies, actions and inactions, that I have disagreed with; however, there is a difference between me and conservatives, I am critical of him for reasons based in reality, an area that conservatives rarely travel too.  I am a progressive, not an old school, bleeding heart politically correct liberal, and I am also a realist.  I also do not believe in hypocrisy. If you follow conservatives you will know that, since President Obama became President, they have lived in a world of hypocrisy.  It is astounding how hypocritical the right has become, which I will write about in the future. And it is amusing to see how hypocritical my conservative friends are. Mind blowing.   But, sadly, so are liberals. Which to me is enraging since we are supposed to be the adults room amongst the feces flinging children.

So in this blog you will see criticisms of POTUS when I disagree and praise when do I agree.
