You can read my old Daily Illini columns and the e-debates that ensued from them at my old blog, Conservative Means, Liberal Ends. To read the last 20 or so entries I’ve written on Urbanagora click on this link.
Billy Joe Mills graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2006. He majored in Political Science, Economics, and Finance. He began law school at UIUC in Fall 2006 and will graduate in 2009.
His undergraduate activities included: Daily Illini Columnist; Provost Search Committee; Illinois Student Senate Committee Chairman; College Republicans Committee Chairman; Participation in 13 public debates alongside undergrads, grads, and professors; Founder of the Political Forums Newsletter; Martin Luther King Commemorative Committee; Tuition Policy Advisory Committee(testified in Springfield on behalf of Committee); Dialogues on Diversity Chairman; Chancellor’s Advisory Committee; other committees. In law school he is co-president of the Federalist Society.
Billy (that’s actually me, I’m writing this, but I’m pretending it’s not me by writing it in 3rd person, which is why I sound so damn good so far) has also been the recipient of multiple awards and scholarships, including the Lincoln Academy Laureate, which is awarded by the Governor to one senior at each university in Illinois as voted by deans and faculty.
Outside of school Billy has been a Precinct Captain in Schaumburg Township, an intern at the Cook County Public Defender’s Office, and a researcher in economics and comparative constitutional law at the Center for the Study of Democratic Governance. He is also Governor Edgar’s research assistant at the Institute of Government and Public Affairs. Billy is addicted to becoming skilled at various games, thus he currently plays about an hour of chess a day on gameknot.com (you can play me, my name is onemanbandbjm).
In 2006 he, along with William Shatner, founded The Billy Joe Mills Institute for the International Dissemination of the Glorious Triumph of Democracy and Capitalism – ©Copyright 2006. It has quickly become the world’s most frequently cited Think Tank (relax, just a joke).
He enjoys poker, fantasy and real baseball, the Chicago Cubs, da Bears, classic rock, wearing vests, and not drinking alcohol.

Here’s the bio that I wrote for the Daily Illini:
Billy Joe Mills is a conservative in the most traditional, Burkean sense. He believes in radically changing government, at times advocating for the march of militant moderates. He is so extreme that he has reportedly confessed to being a straight white male Christian conservative. However, he is a devout moderate President McCain conservative, thus none of his beliefs are derived from his religion. In June 2006 Mills, along with Sir William Shatner, established a neoconservative think tank devoted to the violent spread of peaceful liberty. As a first year law student he considers Billy Joe Mills to be the next Denny Crane. While serious in debate, he can often be spotted playing with bouncy balls on campus, and he was co-founder of the Bouncy Ball Appreciation and Distribution Association (B.B.A.D.Ass.). He frequently denies the accusation that he is blissfully unaware of himself, particularly on the subject of arrogance. His views are too complex and nuanced to be understood by most people, but 99 percent of the time they are simple and brutish. He believes in helping people by not helping them much at all, making foreign peoples less violent by going to war with them, and lowering taxes on rich people to help poor people. Mills is so desperate to meet new girls that he strongly encourages strangers to email him, but warns that he does not like getting emails from girls he does not know.
