It's been over a year and a half since my last posting saying I'd be back soon. Soon has arrived, and it is now.

There have been a lot of things that have changed in the past few years since I was actively blogging and keeping up with the melee that seems to be our political structure, some changes for the better, some for the worse, some changes of a personal nature, a great, great many changes that have happened in our country and in our world since I decided to pull my shingle in that day back in 2009. Some days it seems like yesterday, some days it seems to have all happened a lifetime ago. However, these are things that are private and personal to me, and while there are blog sites that are dedicated to the musings and going's on of the day to day and personal reflections, that was never the intention nor purpose of Highly Opinionated. This is a site that was, and is, dedicated to the following of current events and news, and how those events and happenings affect us politically and as a society.

For those of you who are finding me for the first time, let me qualify my positions by stating this: I am not politically affiliated nor aligned with the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, the Tea Party, the Green Party, the Libertarian Party, nor any other political party in existence today or prior to today. Our founding fathers warned us against the formation of a party system in this country, yet we have not heeded their warnings and have done so. It affects us adversely today, as can be seen by the current gridlock in our national government and the closure of "non-essential" offices and agencies of our government. We'll discuss "non-essential" at a later time, quite likely tomorrow morning.

For now, I am back, and intend to be back, for the foreseeable future.

Welcome tell you the truth, I'd completely forgot about you...then I saw your name on an email and said, "That name looks familar."
Well like I said, "Welcome back!"

Much obliged. Easy to forget about some of us when we drop out of sight completely, so no harm, no foul. Glad to be back in the fray.
