I'm an old friend to the grand blog master here at Rattington Post and have been asked to contribute here. I didn't have to think twice. I'm pleased to be a part of Rattington and look forward to the partnership.
Hopefully the readers here will enjoy my stuff and also visit my site: www.badgerbenson.com and also give my show a whirl on BlogTalkRadio - www.blogtalkradio.com/badger-benson I try to do a show each Friday at 2 PM Central. We'll be featuring the Rattington Post on the show from time to time.
A little background about myself - In my 30's, living in a smalltown outside of Omaha, Nebraska (Ben Nelson sends you all his love. You can forward your hate and I'll make sure he gets it. Note - Nebraska don't like him either, especially me!) I've been married for a year now. We have no small badgers or rats running around yet. I'm actually a Nebraska transplant from rural Iowa. (You may also forward all hate mail to Senator Harkin to me, I'll do my best to get it to him.) I've always been a farmboy. From an early age I've been interested in history and politics. At age two I was held by Ronald Reagan during a campaign stop. There's a sidestory to that where he was invited to the family farm, but unable to attend - which led to the meeting, and a nice letter addressed to my parents. At age 14 I began exploring the early concept that was the Internet, (get your head out of the gutter!) it was through the Prodigy service I was able to find a contact that works with Rush Limbaugh. I didn't believe the guy. The next day was my birthday and Rush wished me a happy birthday over the national airwaves, referrring to me as a "courageous young warrior". Well the warrior is all grown up now, but still in the fight. Aside from my rural routes and brushes with fame I've spent time in numerous fields - seed corn production, both UPS and FedEx, Pella Windows, time in both radio and television, and also my own business as a wedding videographer.
Today I'm just having a good time annoying liberals with my blog posts, piffy Facebook status messages, email alerts to friends and family, cartoons, short videos, blog posts, and Internet radio program.
Thanks for the invite to be a part of the Rattington Post. It's going to be a lot of fun!
