  • A New Direction For Turning Left

    Readers no doubt have noticed that I haven’t been posting much over the past several months.

    Heck, over the past few years.

    Turning Left is always in the back of my mind, but I really didn’t know what to do. What to write.

    I didn’t want to be that snarky guy any more who just wrote for the sake of writing, that guy who just made fun of people, or went on rants.

    I wanted to be more substantive than that.

    I was so angry at times during the Bush years. Many of us were. But to look for people at which I could be angry, or to just be that angry guy during the Obama years, well, that didn’t make much sense.

    And I was not always pleased with President Obama.

    But, for the most part, I was.

    I am.

    So what to do with this blog, which has awesome page rank on Google despite the fact that I rarely touch it?

    Found my solution today.

    We need a new direction.

    No, not right. Or center.

    Let’s take direction as focus.

    We need a new focus. A new plan.

    And here it is…

    We don’t want to become the anti-Fox News blog. We don’t want to become the anti-conservative blog.

    We don’t want to discriminate against people because of who they are.

    But we will be critical about people because of what they do.

    That will be our new focus.

    We will still laugh. We will still likely be snarky at times.

    But we can’t be self-righteous. We can’t ignore our own faults.

    But we can write.

    We invite you to join us for the ride. Please visit often, enjoy, and, please, feel free to share our posts.

    We have something to say that needs to be said.

    We have words that need to be heard.

    We are Turning Left
