I’m NYTexan, my liberal blog focuses on national and Texas politics, Iraq, political corruption, scandals (some days I can’t keep up with them), veterans issues, the environment and what every else pops in my head.
I started thinking about a blog after the 2006 elections. I didn’t want the events of November to just be a fluke. America was finally waking up to the reality of the Bush administration and the war. The neo-cons and religious right had high jacked the country and I’d had enough.
I encourage comments from all sides. I will not edit any comments. They post as you have written them. However, your comments will be deleted for the following reason only: I will not tolerate racism on any level especially the use of the “N” word. By the way this statement was up long before Imus.
I was born and raised in The Bronx, New York. I’ve spent most of my adult life in Texas. Hence my nickname nytexan.
Things I miss: Real NY Pizza
Things that scare me: The Right Wing
Places I won’t visit: Crawford Texas
Occupation: I work in the legal field.
Location: Central Texas because of the air quality and the crayola box of weird people.
CV: 20 Years at NASA, 6 Years at the Treasury, 3 Years USCGR, 3 Years NBC affiliate photographer, eternal dabbler in Art, Poetry & Music – Oh yeah, wannabe shadetree psychologist.
Why I’m here: The catharsis of sharing what I’ve learned and observed. I am a concept person who sees patterns in everything. The patterns in small inanimate things and in biological things are surprisingly similar. What appears to be bizarre to others often have simple explanations. A population of conscious and unconscious travel alongside each one of us. We should be most aware and responsible for our own behavior. My observations are about this country, other countries and what drives the people that populate them. I research just about everything that crosses my path and have assimilated quite a collection of opinions.
