Not dead yet

Been in Las Vegas for the last week. Had a blast, spent a pile, but was unable to blog. I'm back now, and will resume my regular irregular blogging schedule shortly. Stay tuned.

On a completely different note

After careful, painstaking research, I have come to the conclusion that my blog layout, well, isn't very good. In fact, it's bad. Really bad. Really, really, really bad. Stuart Saves His Family bad.

This is a cry for help. Anybody know anyone who can do some good design for me at a reasonable price? Or should I bite the bullet and hire Sekimori, which everyone else seems to do?

I'll be back soon

...honest. Things are still pretty hectic, but I've got a few posts I want to make and I'll try to get to them by the end of the week. I'm impressed with many of the suggestions that were made in the "I seek a challenge" post and I hope to do at least one or two.

Haven't had a chance to update lately. Still don't have the chance, but I wanted to post to explain why. Things have been very busy at my real job (you know, the one I get paid for) lately and it hasn't left me a heck of a lot of free time. Some of you know the reason for this; the rest of you will find out on May 12.

I seek a challenge

As a way of exercising the ol' noodle, I'd like to try to defend a position with which I disagree. I'm taking suggestions for topics; if you have a good idea, please post a proposition I despise in the comments and I'll do my best.

The Neolibertarian Revolution

Neoconservatives, as far as I understand them, are a wing of the conservative movement that's particularly interested with expanding American hegemony for the good of the world; instituting a sort of Pax Americana. By way of analogy, I've been calling myself a neolibertarian for awhile. While most libertarians happen to favor an isolationist foreign policy, this does not necessarily follow from basic libertarian principles. All libertarians agree that national defense is a proper function of government. As a neolibertarian, I just think that the best defense is a good offense. I believe that a muscular foreign policy is good for this country and good for the world.

My neolibertarian ideals were fully on display when I wrote my three part essay on the libertarian case for war in Iraq.

Turns out that not only am I not alone, I'm not even particularly creative in my naming. The fine folks at QandO have created the Neolibertarian Network for likeminded bloggers. They lay out the essence of their vision for a neolibertarian ideology. Personally, I think it could use a little fleshing out, but it's a heck of a good start.

I have no illusions that neolibertarianism will be any more successful in the political sphere than simple libertarianism, but stranger things have happened. I am proud to join the Neolibertarian Network, and to wave the flag of pragmatic, hawkish libertarianism high.

I hereby pledge

Per Patterico:

If the FEC makes rules that limit my First Amendment right to express my opinion on core political issues, I will not obey those rules.

Now that's an easy pledge to make.

Another brief hiatus

No more blogging for the rest of this week. I'm heading to scenic San Francisco, baby, the heart of Blue America. I regret only that I don't have any inflammatory T-shirts to wear to tweak the locals.

No blogging next week

I realize that I haven't exactly been updating this blog on a regular basis, but I still wanted to let you know not to expect anything next week. Business is taking me to the United Kingdom. See y'all when I get back.

30,000 hits

Sometime today, this weblog got its 30,000th hit. Yeah, yeah, I know, the big guys get that many in an hour, but still, it's a milestone. Thanks to all my readers for helping me reach it.
