Hello, and welcome to my website.

My name is Clinton Alden.

Irreverent, sarcastic, sardonic, acerbic, obtuse are just a few of the adjectives that have been tossed at me from time to time. Reflecting that, yes, I too, can be an asshole. But more than anything, I strive to be human.

About Me: I'm an unapologetic advocate for human rights, a creative extremist, raging against the plutocratic machine of oligarchy, a blogger, political commentator, and US foreign policy critic, backyard philosopher, redneck astronomer, and part time raving lunatic!

” So the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or for the extension of justice? In that dramatic scene on Calvary’s hill three men were crucified. We must never forget that all three were crucified for the same crime–the crime of extremism. Two were extremists for immorality, and thus fell below their environment. The other, Jesus Christ, was an extremist for love, truth and goodness, and thereby rose above his environment. Perhaps the South, the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.” - Letter from a Birmingham Jail [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.]
