A few quick facts about me: I’m a 28-year-old husband and father of one beautiful daughter residing the great Buckeye state of Ohio. My day job is in the microbiology field, I have played guitar for 13 years, and aspire to one day write science fiction novels. I’m Catholic and tend to be conservative in most of my views, but by no means do I bear blind allegiance to a political party. I love football, and I’m a fan of The Ohio State University, an alumnus of Wright State University, and a long-suffering supporter of the Cincinnati Bengals. I very much appreciate an irreverent, even sarcastic, sense of humor, but I also respect the importance of gravitas and those things which demand it.
Wellsy’s World came into existence in late November 2008, and exists primarily for two reasons:
1) For a personal therapeutic benefit; instead of my previous habit of internalizing a desire to burst out an argument at news and opinions throughout the world, this blog provides an avenue through which I can release those thoughts and emotions that the world brings out in all of us.
2) To provide a thoughtful conservative viewpoint on the issues of the day. Various caricatures and misconceptions exist about conservatives, and I hope to dispel some of them by keeping an open mind and by debating with facts and arguments, not name-calling and demonization.
Politics and news is the main thrust of this blog, but I’ll also share cool science and tech stories, and comment on significant cultural touchstones that shape us as a people.
Wellsy’s World is unashamedly conservative, but I strive to keep an open mind on all things, and I’d encourage any civil disagreement (or uncivil agreement) any of you would care to express. In any case, whether you agree or disagree, I hope my postings will give you something to think about for a few moments during your day.
Thanks for stopping by, and you’re welcome back any time.
