About Think Weiss

Think Weiss began as a Facebook Page, which has amassed over 1,000 followers. Granted this following was largely the result of my taking advantage of Facebook's option to create a new page based on your profile, which causes all of your friends to "auto-like" and "auto-follow" it.  I feel lucky to have only lost a few "friends" after I did that. I’m still struggling on Twitter.

A play on the idiom "think twice", I settled on "Think Weiss" after a series of failed attempts to come up with a punny yet memorable title that included my last name. One reader pointed out that it also works as a play on “think wise”.

My shtoyle usually has a decent level of insightfulness laced with just enough snark to keep people entertained and informed. Hopefully, my subscriber volume will reflect that one of these days.

Politically, I identify as a leftist. I say “leftist” because centrist Democrats have largely co-opted the term “progressive”, much like they did with “liberal”. I look forward to the day they try to co-opt “socialist”. Bernie Sanders is my hero, and I despise fascists.

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my wife, Michelle, and our dogs, Eddie and Maddie. I’m on the autism spectrum, and I’m proud of it!

I have a B.A. and an M.A. in Sociology and an A.S. in Computer Programming. There’s no need to ask if I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. If this endeavor is successful, maybe I won’t have to wonder about that anymore. 😁

With that in mind, I hope you’ll subscribe to my newsletter and my YouTube channel.

I also have accounts on the social media trifecta (FacebookTwitterInstagram). I’m sure I’ll be on TikTok one of these days.

If you enjoy Think Weiss and would like to support this endeavor of mine, you can make a contribution of any amount.
