Conservative opinion and Economic analysis.
I’m Kelly or @KLSouth on Twitter, that 140 character-limit social media that forces rants and diatribes into witty one-liners and good tag lines. Specifically, it increases the substance to character ratio, which makes Twitter, well, Twitter. That’s the problem. If I’m on a Twitter roll, I don’t want to speak in SMS jargon. So I’ll say it here.
By trade, I’m not an editor, blogger or journalist. And, I have no desire to be one nor recognition as one. But, I write stuff. Some meaningful. Some not. Some people will read it. Some might miss out. I post here only as a gateway to a larger discussion beyond Twitters 140 characters. Thus, the title… “Furthermore.”
Chicago native, sports enthusiast, Investment Banker, Calvin Coolidge conservative… I’ve been a season-ticket holder of conservative politics since high school or age 16. My Mini-Self Portrait spans 25 years of business and executive management, strategy consulting and investment banking. I’m a free-market capitalist, limited government conservative and a strict Constitutionalists.
In between career assignments, I waltzed my way into a Fellowship at the US Senate. Because of my acumen of the inter-workings of Congress; the legislative process, Capitol Hill and the lobby-gamesmanship of K Street, I can easily alarm a reader by demonstrating the intellectual dishonesty and intrinsic self-preservation of a Beltway politician.
My curiosity meter is always pegged. My compass always wired. No need to donate to cognitive dissonance volleys of hyperbole. Instead, I’m motivated in exposing the truth of the cowards. I choose principle over prestige, morality over popularity and the hard working fella over heartless bureaucrats. I boycott phonies who hold others to a higher standard than themselves.
I build equity through the path of reason, fairness, empirical data, truth, clarity of logic and I’ll defend them without apology. From Politics to Media Bias to Chicago Sports, I love comical warfare. I’m an irony junkie. And, there is way too much fodder out there.
I’m living and dying with the Cubs…. and the Bears.
