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 can’t get my message across in SMS jargon. I’ll say it here. Thus, the title… “Furthermore.”
My bloodline is of Southern ancestry. I was reared under southern heritage, yet Chicago born. Half my life has been spent in the south. It’s hospitality and charm, is central to who I am. But it is the privilege and mark of distinction of being “American” that I am most thankful for.
Calvin Coolidge conservative. I’ve been a season-ticket holder of conservative politics since age 14; free-market capitalist, limited government, strict Constitutionalist. Born upon incredible founding principles; the US Constitution limits Government, not the people. Truth and logic is my Trinity – and I’ll defend my positions without apology.
By trade, I’m not an editor, blogger or journalist. Nor do I care to be. But, I write stuff. Some meaningful. Some not. Sports enthusiast, Business owner, Corporate Finance Advisory. My mini-self portrait spans 25 years of Business Strategy & Consulting, Finance, Capital Markets, and Mergers & Acquisitions.
In between career assignments, I waltzed my way into a Fellowship at the US Senate. With insight into the inter-workings of Congress; legislative process, and K-Street, I understand the distinction between policy & jurisprudence and politics & dishonesty. Exposing it, is part of my life’s rich pageantry.
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.
