Some Necessary Comments

This blog was created by yours truly and the contributors you see here. It was always - and remains - an outlet for ideas, discussion and debate. It should go without saying that the comments of one author aren't necessarily shared by the other contributors to this space; and certainly that the comments of any one of the authors don't reflect the opinions of those organizations we're involved with, nor are they shared by our friends and family at large.

Nevertheless, and so as to eliminate any question (should one be raised in the future): the postings contained herein and any comments are the opinions solely of the writers individually, and in no way represent the opinions of affiliated organizations, companies, or persons not connected to the site. This includes but is not limited to our respective friends, families, Churches, employers, volunteer or membership organizations.

I've seen similar disclaimers on other blogs, and given some stories I have heard recently, I think that this is an appropriate time to add this to the blog.

As always, we welcome comments from you our readers, should anything be unclear. Thanks for sharing your time with us; we're honored that our readers use some of their valuable time to follow what's going on here. God bless you all.

For Guests and First-Time Visitors

I saw this on another blog and thought: what a great idea! I simply must copy it!

Well, here's the thing about the marketplace of ideas: the best rule. So this post, backdated cleverly as it is, should work as a place to get familiar to the AFB if you're a newcomer. Sound good? Great, let's get started...

I'd first visit the link In The Beginning, which takes us back to when this blog was created and why.

Since this place is all about Balanced Government, you might be wondering what that is. Go over there next, check out the posts and the comments - the comments are often better than the posts, which are sometimes just conversation starters. Go ahead and add your own two cents if you want: I get e-mail notifications of comments, so we can all go back and re-start a good conversation or two.

And as always, you can contact any of the contributors here to encourage us or simply pick a fight. Hope you enjoy the blog...
