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...
As I become older and more mature, I’m looking at FARK with a whole different perspective. I don’t take quite so much puerile delight in the B.U.F. that permeates the overwhelmingly liberal membership there. The ad hominem attacks they use, the argumentum ad authoritarian, the circular reasoning, the snarky snippets they throw around, and the stark prejudices and biases all these disorders evince, as if any evincing were needed…these all start to bore me.
Aw, who the hell am I kidding.
What better way to spend fifty bones a year. Entertainment, wit, talent, AND you get to watch the widespread destruction of the ability of individuals to think things through logically, on naked display before your very eyes — the single gravest threat to America and the civilized world in the twenty-first century. Scene by scene, act by act. The people who’ve fallen prey to this are not yet ready, willing or able to hide their delusions like our traditional-deluded. They advertise their foolishness. Exuberantly. Jubiliantly. You see, they’re looking for high-fives and pats-on-the-back from their liberal buddies.
…they really hate this. It’s a tongue-in-cheek — kinda sorta — argument about this whole groundhog-day tradition resembling, in a number of ways, the prevailing viewpoint and the amazing control our leftists have come to exert over it.
Punxsutawney Phil is a Left-wing operative
Comparing Leftists to groundhogs actually makes sense
February 2, 2007
The subject might not be as far-fetched as it seems.
Compare the facts about Groundhog Day, and its famous weather “predictor,” Punxsutawney Phil, with the methods of Left-wing operatives.
1. Punxsutawney Phil suddenly appears on the scene from a “hole” of obscurity. If not for massive promotion by the Left-leaning news media, would anyone have ever heard of Punxsutawney Phil?
How many other connections does he find? More than you think.
Just in case you missed it, and you care — and I doubt both of these — the consensus among the FARK membership is that you should not be reading this, and you will become stupid if you do.
You’ve been warned.
Update: Another thing got a chilly reception there lately: It turns out that yes, soldiers really have been spit-upon by self-righteous hippies. It’s not an urban myth. Whoops, secret’s outta the bag now.
