    Anathema: a person or thing detested or loathed. (dictionary.com)

    Trust me, soon enough you will understand why I have chosen this name.

    I am a 19th Century man living in a 21st Century world that has no place for me. I am that unpleasant shadow in the corner of your mind that you don't like to admit exists. I am your "odd" uncle that nobody wants to talk to at Thanksgiving dinner. I am the cranky old man you don't let your kids look at when you walk down the street.

    I am NOT Politically Correct, Socially Conscious, Environmentally Friendly, or Gender-Neutral. I am Spiritual, not Religous.

    I believe in Right and Wrong as the only two ABSOLUTES in the world. I believe these concepts were created at the time our forefathers started to band together into the first social groups thousands of years ago and still remain the same today.

    I am an Anachronism, a Traditionalist, and the most unpleasantly Closed-Minded person you have ever met.

    ..... You have been properly warned.

    No, not a Troll. Just someone who doesn't pull punches or engage in social niceties simply to keep from offending other people. You kow that little part of your brain that keeps you from saying or typing the things you REALLY think..... I don't have that anymore. I am openly and honestly the most closed-minded individual you've ever met. You will not change my mind on anything; nor am I here to change yours. Understand that and we'll get along just fine.

    LOL. Not in the least. I'm about as Conservative as you get. If anything I'm an Authoritarian/Fascist so I'm about as far from a Liberal/Democrat as you could ever imagine.
