TBP Praiseworthy: April 1, 2011

We had a truly wonderful birthday week at The Bold Pursuit! On March 25, 2009, I published my first blog on the original blog page.

During the past two years,The Bold Pursuit has evolved from a simple page to a full website with columnists, staff (we need volunteers!), five blog channels, content partners and more. Thank you, readers, for supporting us, visiting our website and encouraging all of us to keep working and staying true to our mission.

Below are some of the articles and best wishes that were submitted for TBP Turns Two week:

Author, columnist and Fox News contributor, Erik Rush, sent his best wishes for our two-year milestone in Happy Birthday … Acknowledging Those Who “Get It” 

Hearkening back to your premier 2009 entry, “I Get It”: It is important that we acknowledge and support those who do get it. Obviously, there are a lot of folks who don’t, or who do get it but can’t articulate the message effectively. Then there are those who just want to get noticed, for better or worse. When people are out there spreading the words of wisdom, liberty, and patriotism consistently and without receiving all those kudos, it becomes pretty apparent that they’re not in it for the glory. They are, of course, the ones we want to see acknowledged, because they deserve it! … 

Happy Birthday

Robert Arvay, a frequent contributor to The Bold Pursuit, offered these kind words, “From The Patriot’s Notepad:

With all the very, very many websites devoted to political and social discussion, The Bold Pursuit is one of the few which combine high intellectual standards with ordinary common sense. I am privileged to have been allowed to be a small part of this enterprise, and I wish it many more years of ever greater success…. “From the Patriot’s Notepad”

Our Monday columnist, John Wayne Tucker, dedicated a column to The Bold Pursuit: The Anniversaries of Freedom

“He was not a Republican, nor was he a Democrat, having lived long before either of those parties would be conceived. Yet, both parties hail him as one of the greatest men to have served our country. He was a governor of Virginia, ambassador to France, author of the Declaration of Independence, our first Secretary of State to George Washington and thus at the heart of the first Political Party Controversy as he fought with Alexander Hamilton over the powers of the Federal Government. As such, he became the leader of the Anti-Federalists and champion of the common man and the principle proponent of an Agrarian Society in America. He was our third President … click here for the full article: The Anniversaries of Freedom

Our Senior Editor and Advisor, Genevieve, penned her personal greetings in “TBP Celebrates Our 2nd Birthday!”

What began 2 years ago as a mission to “provide an environment for political coverage and commentary, as well as motivate and support efforts to protect our country, our Constitution and citizens” has developed into an excellent resource of perspectives and beliefs of Conservative Patriots. The Bold Pursuit encourages a courteous exchange of ideas and opinionsCelebrates

We were moved by another personal story, one in which many of us can relate, by Cynthia Toney: Never Say Never, Never Say Die

On this, the second anniversary of the founding of The Bold Pursuit, I am reminded of an anniversary of my own.

“Seventeen years ago this month, I officially became a Republican… “Never Say Never, Never Say Die”

The cherry on our cake was a fun cartoon created for TBP by Luis Sandoval (righthandedcartoons.com) You’ll have to visit the site to see this funny, but affectionate tribute (BTW, that is Thomas Jefferson sneaking up behind me : )  http://www.theboldpursuit.com/tbp-journal/2011/3/25/congratulations-on-your-first-two-years.html

Thank you readers, writers, editor and staff for a memorable two years. We invite all of you to join us on our quest and be “… bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led…” (Thomas Jefferson).
