The Unofficial View in 2015

As 2014 has now culminated in its preordained demise, we would like to say thank you for reading The Unofficial View.

We are looking to make a few changes for 2015. We euphemistically refer to those changes around here as “improvements”, but without implementing them and without testing them, there is no way for us to know in advance whether or not that will be the case. New year, new hopes, right?

Based on traffic reports for the site, one of the features here, the (sometimes) daily reading list, appears to garner enough interest to indicate that we should do that more often. Like every day. Or something close to every day. In conjunction with that idea, we have initiated an “Outliner” at Diigo—an online bookmarking and research tool. The 2015 list can be found at this location and a partial list of the 2014 articles that caught our eye is at Diigo, here. We expect the outline for this year to be fleshed out as the year progresses, but our preliminary assessment indicates the following topics will factor rather heavily moving forward:

  • The Imperial Obama Presidency – Or, Obama Flips Off the US Constitution
  • The Slow Decay (and hopefully, eventual demise) of Obamacare – Or, SCOTUS Holds Obama et al in Contempt for Flipping Off The American Public
  • IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups – Or, IRS Flips Off Conservatives
  • The GOP Establishment and Their One Finger Salute to Their Constituents
  • Election 2016 – Hillary Flips Off Obama and Mitt Flips Off Common Sense
  • Big Government – Unofficial View Flips Off Government Encroachment on Personal Liberties

The Unofficial View has contracted with Visibly Media ( to help us focus and increase our social media presence. In addition to our Facebook page, look for us this year on Google Plus, Twitter and maybe even the occasional Stumble Upon.

We are looking into the possibility of adding guest editorials and op-eds. Contact if you are interested in participating.

One of the big modifications we are investigating is the addition of a “Point / Counterpoint” section to the site where current topics and events are discussed from opposing viewpoints. This idea is still in the development stage for us and has little substance at the moment. Hopefully, that will change in the near future as we move forward.

Again, thank you for reading The Unofficial View in 2014 and we look forward to your views and comments in 2015.
