About this Blog

Politics. Economics. Media. Sports. Put into context.

I’m Kelly or @KLSouth on Twitter, that 140 character-limit social media that forces rants and diatribes. Specifically, it increases the substance to character ratio, which makes Twitter, well, Twitter. That’s the problem. If I don’t want to speak in SMS jargon. I’ll say it here.

I use this blog only as a gateway beyond Twitters 140 characters. Thus, the title… “Furthermore.”

My bloodline is of Southern ancestry. Chicago native, but reared under southern heritage. Half my life has been spent in the south. And, a long line of family members are from the south. It’s central to who I am. But, more than anything, I’m an “American.” I love this country.

I’ve been a season-ticket holder of conservative politics since the age 14; free-market capitalist, limited government, strict Constitutionalists – and I’ll defend my positions without apology. By trade, I’m not an editor, blogger or journalist. Nor do I care to be one. But, I write stuff. Some meaningful. Some not.

Sports enthusiast, Business owner, Financial and Corporate Advisory, Calvin Coolidge conservative. My mini-self portrait spans 25 years of business and executive management, strategy consulting, business planning and institutional finance and Mergers & Acquisitions.

In between career assignments, I waltzed my way into a Fellowship at the US Senate. With knowledge of the inter-workings of Congress; the legislative process, Capitol Hill and K-Street, I find it way too easy to unravel, the all-too-often, intellectual dishonesty and deception of a Beltway politician.

I choose principle over prestige, morality over popularity, and the hard working fella over the heartless bureaucrat. I boycott phonies who hold others to a higher standard than themselves. I despise hypocrisy from either party or person. And, I’m motivated in exposing the truth of the coward. You should be too.

I am always amazed at the grace of God.

Thank You!

    I’m looking for others just like you. Together we can unite people and reclaim our country from the collectivists. We can do this by creating and connecting others in this community seeking the same broad objectives you have described above.

    Good to know you.

    Glad to see another former Washington, DC Insider telling it like it is — I don’t feel so alone anymore!

    And I’m @shannanclan who have been learning from your business-side with gratitude. i’m a catholic living as a contemplative monk, wondering, as i was the son of a member of parliament (as well as reagan’s nephew), just how much of the world i should hold on to, at least in my prayers (its the tongue i’ve got to watch!)…

    Actually came across you blog via a friend from Facebook, as a former Chicago area business man turned Floridian, its nice to find someone else with similar beliefs. Still a Chiago sports fan, how about those Cubs!

    I used this type of economic analysis to help small business owners understand who to better run their companies. Keep up the good work.

    Great site. Found you on Twitter through a recommendation. Sorry. Love your website. Thankj you so much. I’m going to place a link to your site at my blogging site, http://www.1600watch.com if thast’s OK. Please check out 1600 Watch and if you are uncomfortable with my positions, I’ll remove the link. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, so to speak.

    Somewhat similar to your own position, I’m a licensed Professional Civil Engineer, licensed General Contractor, licensed truck driver (Class A CDL) and am just a dad completely fed up with the Globalist run, socialist disaster we call Washington D.C. I have additional major in Biology and English, like to write and became a part time blogger.

    I quit blogging occasionally due to anger and frustration. I prefer to be positive and solution oriented rather than spread divisiveness, though I fail to remain calm a good deal of the time.

    Anyway. Great website. Thank you so much.
    Bruce K.
