How about this idea for a conservative (i.e., center-right) website? For an annual fee, one receives editorial content, the ability to comment on website material, and a private area only for members. It’s a competitive environment out there, but the idea just might catch on with the right mix of writers, content, and pointed commentary […]

The Sunshine of My Life

 

“The sun of real happiness shines in your life when you start to cherish others.” — Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

When I think of summer, I experience a restorative state of mind: easy days, dazzling sunlight, leafy trees, blooming flowers and cheerful moments. I think of a bright, yellow sun, bathing the skies and shooing the clouds away. A sunny day lifts me up, even when things might not be going well.

It’s like getting a little holiday hug! I poured a coconut milk eggnog, with Bing and Satchmo in the background, and started writing my cards. I soon found myself a little teary-eyed looking over the names on the Ricochet Christmas Card list. I recognized them all and realized how special this site is. I thought […]

On Seven Years at Ricochet

 

Ricochet is productivity and procrastination, accomplishment and distraction, enrichment and inertia.

I know this well because this week marks my seventh year in this community. I came here after @jameslileks linked to his Ricochet article and described how paying for the privilege of commenting kept discourse civil and productive. I joined soon after, and don’t spend much time on other political/ cultural discussion sites.

“5” I don’t have an opinion about Trump, either way. However, he’s sitting behind the Resolute desk, so let’s end the ‘permanent campaign’, both sides. At least until 2019, shall we? There…That’s more like it. (We now return you to regularly occurring opinionating. Thank you.) More

Why I Am a Reagan Member of Ricochet

 

I have been a member of Ricochet since it started. I signed up for a free test drive through their Facebook membership. By the time that expired I was hooked and signed up. At the time, the hook was a free membership for NR digital. I have let that lapse and I am still here. National Review used to be my go to page for conservative news, but those days passed somewhere during Obama’s second term. Ricochet is where it is at!

The main feed has news and commentary by contributors. It is not comprehensive by any means, but reflects a broad spectrum of conservative and libertarian thought. I am not sure if it is all “center-right” but I am not sure what that means. I do know that I see, intelligent, topical posts by leading individuals. I don’t always agree, sometimes I do, and sometimes it is just worth a laugh. The gems on the Main Feed, though are not from the professionals, they are from the Members.

We Need Your Support

 

It’s that time of year again: the annual membership drive. You know, when Rob Long talks on the flagship podcast about how important it is that people join in order to keep Ricochet afloat, he’s not just blowing smoke. It’s real. We really do need your support to keep this thing going.

Why should you join? Simply put, Ricochet is worth the money. The value you will receive far exceeds the minimal cost. For a small price every month, you get access to a community full of intelligent people to talk to. And it’s not just politics. We talk about everything from theology to Hollywood to travel to cats. This is a real community full of people from diverse backgrounds with interesting points of view.

We all know we’re a talented bunch, but it’s always gratifying to know that others (especially strangers) think so too!
