Joe is the middle child of the
family – and does his best to live up to every negative stereotype associated
with such a social stigma. He seems
to have acquired all the negative traits the “experts” associate with middle
child syndrome but was denied the positive ones.
Neglected? That’s him.
Taken for granted? All the
Famous middle-children include
Ted Bundy, Rasputin and Lucretia Borgia. But
then, so was George Washington. So
you never can tell about these things.
Since the whole world is
against him, Joe had no choice but to develop an early independent streak.
The first Republican in a long-line of leftists, Joe came of political
age in the era of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.
Besides Reagan, he credits two other people in assisting him in becoming
The first is Bill Buckley, the
founder of National Review who made it cool to be conservative.
The second is (hold your breath) James Watt, Reagan’s first – and the
all-time greatest – Secretary of the Interior. Watt’s
classic tome, “The Courage of a Conservative,” a volume the Library Journal
called a “mean-spirited
diatribe larded with erroneous statements,” is now required reading on
Joe’s list of important books – surpassed only by P.J. O’Rourke’s “All
the Trouble in the World.”
Clearly the brains of the duo,
Joe is on a single-minded quest to spread the gospel of conservatism wherever he
goes. But charity begins at home,
so he is anxiously waiting for his nieces to hit those rebellious teen years so
he can begin the brainwashing.
Joe also serves as editor of
PoliticalUSA.com, one of the web’s longest running political websites.
His mother made him let his brother write for the site and the rest, as
they say, is history. As an
aspiring novelist, Joe is at work on his first volume – a political novel with
generous helpings of betrayal, sex and revenge.
But it’s mostly about revenge.
turning to a life of politics, Joe was a stockbroker specializing in emerging
high tech companies. Unfortunately, he got out of the business before the
mid-90's market boom and was mired in a NASDAQ of the 700's for just about his
entire financial career. If he had held onto the stocks he owned back then
he could have retired a millionaire many years ago. Keep this in mind when
you consider his opinions.
A former intelligence analyst
in the United States Navy, Joe spent the early years of his adult life drinking
his way through several backward Asian countries.
In the process he picked up an ex-wife, lots of rattan furniture and
several unidentified diseases.
Joe, the pro-life, anti-gay marriage conservative, is divorced, happily single and doesn’t particularly like children (but he still doesn’t think you should kill them.).
