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...
I don’t think my eyeballs can roll as much as is called for…but…current theory: Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii. But, being a lifelong left-wing hacktivist just like Professor Elizabeth Warren, He’s had a habit of doing the Elizabeth Warren thing which is to boast of diversity credentials He doesn’t really have.
And, if certain college transcripts and other papers were to be made available to the public, we’d see a whole lot of other professors, editors and clerks ‘fessing up to “fact checking error[s] by me.”
We have the “home country” thing…
We have “Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate” — and now we have this.
Somewhere around the 2005 to 2007 timeframe, Obama, just like Prof. Warren, stopped checking the box. And that’s where my thinking is: This is a box that should never have been checked. She’s a white girl without a drop of Cherokee blood in her, and He was born in Honolulu.
But they both did check the boxes. In Obama’s case, there’s just a lot more effort involved in hiding the evidence of what He was saying about Himself…no, I don’t think He was born in Kenya. But I’m not going to presume people are crazy for thinking He was, when it looks like He Himself was insisting on exactly that just a few years ago. It isn’t just one thing. It’s now up to three things. And, it looks like it would be up to a whole lot more than that, were Obama’s life not so thoroughly shrouded in secrecy.
And frankly, people who are trying to perpetuate that stigma, whether they’re being compensated for doing so for not, should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. Who the heck are you to call them these dirty names? Were you there, in Honolulu, back in ’61?
Much of this is damage being done to Obama by Obama Himself. He’s got this habit going — and it’s bigger than a personal habit, it’s like a whole culture that surrounds all of the people, who in turn surround Him: “We’re too good to ever directly answer any questions” I guess you’d call it. Why did it take so long to produce the birth certificate? I’ve heard the various litanies about how nutty it is to be asking for it and He shouldn’t have to show us anything…but the problem is, we get that with every little thing we ask. About anything. Still no bin Laden death photo. And, other than the stonewalling, that’s a completely unrelated subject. But the stonewalling is still there. It’s present with every little thing He does, any question He doesn’t want to answer, you get back some snotty monologue about all the things that are wrong with whoever asked. Just answering the incredibly simple question, or presenting the paperwork that was requested, is ruled out from the get-go.
Dude — that’s weird.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I wanna know what happens when Barack Obama is driving a car, and gets pulled over by a cop. License, registration, insurance. What happens next? I have no idea how that goes down. I’d love to find out.
This is essentially a philosophical issue. We’re dealing with the relativism of our left-wingers, with the pliable notion of “truth” that is the spongy building block of their special stretchy universe, on steroids. Their brand of truth is whatever it takes to move the agenda…what’s the word…forward, and since that changes from one year to the next, truth, also, changes from one year to the next.
So Barack Obama can start being born in Kenya, and then stop again. Just like Elizabeth Warren can start being part Cherokee. And then stop again.
Hillary Clinton has been specializing in this sort of thing for awhile now. Her accent changes to suit the occasion…
It’s important to understand that this isn’t actually “lying.” When an agenda is present and it is held to a higher level of importance than facts, the facts essentially cease to exist. The agenda becomes the new truth. Try this simple experiment: Find a fact that is objectively measurable and therefore undeniable, one that is unfriendly to the progressive agenda. It’s not hard. There are plenty, if you just look. Odds are, if you’re not a proggie, you have more than a few that are among your favorites. The fact doesn’t have to completely shatter their precious agenda, it just has to make some difficulty for it. A failed global-warming prediction will do nicely. Now find a progressive, and try to get him to acknowledge the undeniable, measurable fact. Try it on a weekend so you can make a day-long project out of it, like building a fence or a birdfeeder, if you have the time. Give it a good honest effort.
Seems like it should be do-able. It’s not. Facts don’t mean the same thing to liberals, as they do to normal people.
See how it works? If Professor Warren feels like she’s part-Indian, she must be. If Obama feels like running for President, then He must have been born in Hawaii. Otherwise, if He’s struggling with His ethnic identity crisis that’s been so thoroughly documented by His ghostwriter…maybe, for today, He was born in Kenya. Feel, feel, feel. That’s the lodestar.
Update: One more video…because Boortz is having some fun:
