txzman also goes by the name JPVann on other venues, and is a 48 year old Christian living in a suburb North of Dallas, recently divorced (yes that happens in households where people love Christ) and the proud father of 2 teenage girls . You can read his daily news and thoughts at his web site at Zman Musings at www.zmanzone.com.

A conservative whose values over the years have been shaped by his faith in God, (albeit with a late start...) and a deep understanding of the workings of this country provided by his father, who spent 25 years in the United States Air Force.

I remind most young people I meet of Winston Churchill's famous quote: "Any man who at 20 is not a liberal has no heart; and any man who at 40 is not a conservative has no brains."

And what do I get - usually some comment along the lines that I am a bloomin' idiot. So my new quote? 'Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
