A New Campaign

I’m working on a new political campaign, so don’t expect to see as much of me here for the next few weeks. As one newspaper had already covered Bo (Mark Bodenhausen), we had to announce today, before we were able to complete the website. Hopefully pulling the announcement off on a Monday will place us one day ahead of the last day filers in the news cycle, though.

Feel free to check out the site, submit better graphics, vote in the polls, and otherwise participate in the campaign. I’ll take all the help I can get on this one.

One of the key issues will be eminent domain, which is a very critical issue in Birmingham, Alabama. In addition to the famous WalMart land grab in Alabaster which Neal Boortz covered extensively, a very similar case happened in Roebuck, which is physically in the district where Bo is running. A new case just hit the paper yesterday, and we are working on a response to this one right now.

They once put black people in the back of the bus in Birmingham, until political activists changed how we deal with race issues. They are now putting property owners in the back of the bus, and I guess it is time for political activists to get busy protecting their rights, too.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.
