In with the new and out with the old

If you've ever looked at my sidebar and visited any of the blogs listed there, then you know there are some new names on the list. That's because I finally deleted my old political blog, The Foothills Opinion Post. I kept it up just to have the links for sites I visit each day for news and commentary. The most read ones were moved over to the Bloggerhood.

With the swearing in of Obama, I've moved on. The old blog was so full of recrimination and vitriol that I felt it better to just wipe it clean. I'm willing to give the last administration a pass if things can be turned around. I'm sick to death of hating my country's leadership, policies and actions. I'm just as tired of bitching about it.

So in that vein, I thought the old political commentary (at least mine) should be put to rest. There will be more posts on current events on this site than before, along with commentary on the economy and markets. (I am slowly becoming involved in the stock market) (Yes, I know it's not such a great time, but I need an opportunity to make a living) But it will have a more positive tone and I will do my best to keep the faith (Naive though I may be) that the new guy will do the best he can with the situation given him.
