About This Author

I'm just your Average Joe with an above-average IQ and a love of science, technology, history, and politics.

I love to read sci-fi, military fiction, and mysteries. I reside in coastal Mississippi in an area that was affected by Hurricane Katrina, which is about as specific as I'm going to get until I know you better. I am also an African-American, though I dislike that term, and consider myself a fiscal conservative and a moderate on most other issues. I'm old enough to remember when every tv show had a theme song and tv stations signed off the air each night. I have been married for 13 years and am the proud father of a 5-year-old son.

I have worked as a corporate trainer for the past 10 years and am way too comfortable standing in front of a group and talking about anything.

My Political Compass:

Economic Left/Right: -1.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.49

I'm just slightly to the left and pretty strongly libertarian but I'm always up for a good conversation.

Libertarianism is a collection of political philosophies possessing the common themes of individual liberty and minarchism. Libertarianism's ideals, although often varied in detail, typically center on policies in favor of extensive personal liberties, rejecting socialism and communism in favor of individual ownership and control, emphasizing equality before the law rather than equality of outcome, promoting personal responsibility and private charity and opposing welfare statism, and advocating either limiting or entirely eliminating the power and scope of the state in order to maximize individual liberty.
