MANFREDEYE:

This website is primarily a political issue blog, based in Indianapolis, and devoted to topics affecting that city, the State of Indiana, the nation, and the world. I also enjoy a good joke, and have no problem posting the ones that strike me as particularly funny. Beyond all of this, I am not averse to posting anything that I may find unusual or bizarre or keeping a strong topic up to date.

The overall mission of this blog is to take aim at authority, to shoot down propaganda.

MANFRED:

I am one of the nameless, faceless, employees for the State of Indiana. Overworked and underpaid, we are the butt of countless jokes about “lazy government workers.”

I am here to tell you now, that is a load of crap, especially since the Mitch Daniels administration came to power. And having worked for several administrations, including Republican ones, I know what I’m talking about. I also hold an Associates Degree in Business Administration from Ivy Tech State College. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.58.

My political views may best be described as liberal. I currently support Democrats over Republicans, but that is only choosing the better of two evils. I really feel that a strong third party is necessary in order to shake Corporate America’s vice-grip on political power. I tend to support the Populist party of America, but would be willing to consider the Green or even Libertarian positions simply because they are not the status quo.

I feel that our political leaders have gotten too involved in our everyday lives. That there is too much intrusion into people’s sexual practices, their religious affiliations, and too much erosion of their other freedoms. In fact, I believe that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution in general has been seriously violated.
