The Blog name was carefully chosen. My own name is a derivative of the “Gipper” and I have a relative bearing a similar name. I have created the blog for the sole benefit of expressing my opinion(s) on a variety of subjects. I am not a political ideologue, but have strong opinions of subjects found on both sides of the aisle. I would best describe my beliefs as those of a social liberal who is fiscally conservative. I’m not sure who will find and read this blog as I’m not trying to hype it through SEO’s or other methods. It is, as I’ve said, for the sole purpose of expressing my opinion. It simply makes me feel good once I have posted a thought.
