About Chris Bolts Sr.

This is a copy from my Facebook page, with a little amendments:

Activities: I play video games. A lot. So much so that the Mrs. threatens to ground me into the ground every time I play them. By the way, I won’t only be commenting on political stuff, but video game stuff as well. If there is a little reprieve that any of us will get from the rough and tumble of politics it is in the realm of video games…unless those overtly political too (I’m looking at you, Grand Theft Auto IV…)

Interests: I am studying to get my Master’s in Taxation. After I get my Masters, I will pursue my CPA. In the short term I want to work as a tax analyst for either the IRS or one of the Big Four accounting firm (gotta get that GPA up!). In the long run I hope to open my own estate planning firm.

Favorite TV Shows: I love TrueBlood. My co-worker got me hooked on this show. I also like Heroes, Lost, Supernatural, Smallville, House and 24.

Favorite Movies: Braveheart ranks at the top. I also like Predator and Terminators 1 and 2. What the hell happened to Terminator 3 and Terminator Salvation?

Favorite Books: Atlas Shrugged, hands down. This book basically helped me expunge all beliefs in progressivism and liberal thought. That’s not to say I agree with everything that John Galt, er, Ayn Rand says. I happen to believe that Ayn Rand had a little contradiction of her own: she doesn’t realize that the removal of God is what gives men the license to commit so many of the heinous acts they commit in the name of social justice and progress. This is not to say that men who do things in the name of God are angels, but when men say they are doing things in the name of God, that generally is a shield to excuse the abhorrent behavior they perpetrate on men (I’m eying you, Islamic terrorists). It is no surprise that some of the most lethal regimes were all in the 20th century and were led by men who have an absolute hatred of God. I also enjoyed Milton Friedman’s Free to Choose and Capitalism and Freedom, F.A. Hayek’s Road to Serfdom, Amity Schlae’s The Forgotten Man, and Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations. Oh, and for fun I enjoy the entire Harry Potter series.

Favorite Quotations: “The poor want some things, the rich everything, and the avarice all things”. Benjamin Franklin

“The best thing I’ve done as President was minding my own business”. Calvin Coolidge
