An Introduction – Holster

Allow me to take a moment to make an introduction and give a bit of a feel for what y’all will be seeing out of me as a contributor to this humble effort. I’m Holster. In part, I’m one of those responsible for this foray into stepping out of the micro blogging/social media muck of truncated thoughts, links, re-shares, memes, and assorted comment thread pissing matches that soils the digital intellectual landscape.

I can’t speak for anyone else here, nor would I attempt to do as such, but over the course of the last few months it made more and more sense to assemble a small group of individuals to present a more cogent presentation of the average American “right wing” perspective on what is going on in our contemporary political, social and cultural landscape. It’s easy enough to spit out 140 character screedlets and other bite sized morsels of one’s take on any given incident of the day, to become engrossed in flinging feces from a slingshot in comment threads over the minutiae in interpretation of what some empty vessel pop media guru or DC careerist said on a talk show or quibble over how some 15 minutes of fame chucklehead said or did something that fueled a riot at the water cooler. Not interested, not interesting, not intellectually stimulating nor entertaining. Not from where I sit. Personally, I require more.

I will never claim any greater status than that of armchair sophist – I’m an average Middle American with an average lifestyle in every way and by all standards of demographic categorization. With that status, the status of being firmly planted in the middle most of average, I have hit a wall. A wall of tired chagrin of being “spoken for” by various pundits, politicians, snake oil salesmen and the random jackass that chooses to foist their thinly veiled bigotry of [perceived] intellect upon the being of me, mine and my “right wing tea bagging Neanderthal” associates. Through the wonders of these here Intywebz, the common ridge runner like myself can do just that. So here we are and there you have it, this scratches the surface of why I chose to participate in this foray into the realm of digital expression. First Amendment – use it or lose it, right?

Oh yes, there will be sarcasm. No, I will not be terribly polite. As a matter of personal protocol I won’t be in the comment threads of my posts much, anything I have to say on the topic will be in the body of the post – I’m not here to entertain your exercises in debate or see your side of things. With that said, welcome to The Spitcracker Picayune. I truly hope you enjoy the reads.
