Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
Their signs say one thing, their actions say something a little bit different. People on the inside accuse people on the outside of missing the point, but can’t or won’t offer a cohesive, coherent statement of exactly what it is they’re trying to say. I’m given to understand there is a great deal of momentum in this movement, but what they have accumulated looks less to me like “momentum” than the much more superficial quality of visibility. Momentum may come after the definition of the message. And, were it left to me, I’d say that would be a necessary first step before the visibility.
Thought I’d help them out. And for the record, they can count on my support if they go with the first seven items.
1. Too Big To Fail, with the S&L bailout, was a fraud and a sham, let’s never do that again.
2. Sarah Palin is completely right about “crony capitalism” and it needs to stop, gosh darn it.
3. When you have one guy saying something…when you have one guy saying something…and the crowd around him repeats it…and the crowd around him repeats it…you may not have realized this…you may not have realized this…but it’s really, really, creepy…but it’s really, really creepy.
4. See all those old people joining us in our demonstrations? They are testament to the waste of human potential taking place here; they prove that entire lives are being wasted on this leftist gobbledygook. And it doesn’t make a face any prettier.
5. When people are born with silver spoons in their mouths, they don’t end up satisfied, they end up “demonstrating” for more goodies. Me and my friends are living proof!
6. If you spend some kid’s entire childhood telling him how wonderful and special he is, rather than teaching him a rugged work ethic and marketable skills, it doesn’t make society more orderly or better-functioning, it just brings rancor. And again, me and my friends are living proof!
7. All you kids just a few years younger than us, still going to school: See the way we’re dressed? When you dress like this, you can’t get a job. Think about your higher ed: Too many of our universities are soaking up copious quantities of money, and teaching students like us nothing but a bunch of drivel that will land them on Wall Street, with signs in their hands, crapping on police cars. Maybe it’s too late for us but you can still save yourselves.
8. Everybody should have the same amount of stuff.
9. Everybody should be making the same amount of money.
10. Like the spectacles lady says: Corporations control the government, and we need government regulation to protect us from these corporations.
11. Those OWS protesters telling you this isn’t about overthrowing capitalism, are a bunch of damn liars! It is! We’re a bunch of Bolsheviks and it’s high time we faced up to it!
12. George W. Bush has screwed up this economy so badly, that millions of people are lining up around the block to shell out hundreds of dollars to get a fancy new phone, with a new numeral and letter printed on it. It’s just brutal!
