Home is Where the Curmudgeon Is….

Somehow, whether by accident or design, you’ve stumbled across the online home of Daniel Allen Butler, author, historian, semi-professional beach bum and curmudgeon extraordinaire. Whether you choose to stay is entirely up to you.

Now, a little truth in advertising: I’m a white, Christian, heterosexual, Southern, gun-owning, flag-proud American man. I smoke cigars, drink Scotch, cuss a fair bit, and don’t apologize to anyone for any of it. I’m an omnivore, who prefers his red meat rare. I believe “global warming” (as opposed to historically recorded climate change) is a late 20th-early 21st Century liberal myth that has little to do with environmentalism and everything to do with social engineering and “redistribution” of wealth. I believe that government at any level is a necessary evil, and I never imagine that “The Government” is my friend in any way, shape or form. The Second Amendment is damned near sacred to me, because all the other amendments — and the Constitution as well — depend on it for protection. Oh, and I despise socialism and socialists.

In other words, I’m one of The Deplorables….

There, that should scare off any progressive, tree-hugging, gender-bending, bed-wetting, anti-firearm, feminist snowflakes….

Now, if you’re still here, we can get down to becoming friends.

If you want to learn more about who I am and what I do, feel free to wander around a bit. I hope you like cheap Scotch and cheap cigars, because that’s what I have for visitors: the Balvenie is all mine, and keep your hands off my Romeo y Julietas….
