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.
