Thanks Jazz for letting me add to your blog, I will try to not let the standard you set sink too much. Here's a short description of my political views, so that the esteemed reader can decide what to hate me for.
If you're right wing, that will be because I'm not fond of people that use the bible to argue a point. I support legal abortion and think that it would be cheaper to have a basic universal healthcare system than people getting free service in the emergency room paid for by my taxes or health insurance bills. My support for a minimal guaranteed social security that prevents people from starving is nearly socialist. I also don't think a tax cut that pays me $400 by adding several thousand dollars to my share of the federal deficit is realy making me richer.
If you're a liberal you will love to condem me for my views on the death penalty, use of corporal punishment in child education, my moral stand on abortion, and that I see nothing wrong in making people on social security work for free.
As for "what is he going to add to this site", I'm a news junky, browse a lot of technical blogs and news services, especially from Europe, and have a strong interest in technology legislation like the INDUCE act.
So you can expect posts on subjects not normally covered by Jazz. He's also much better in ripping the politicians of the day, so I leave that to him.
