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...
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that the “biggest regret” from her time as the nation’s top diplomat was the 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi.
During a question-and-answer session at a meeting of the National Automobile Dealers Association, Clinton called the loss of four Americans in the attacks “a terrible tragedy” and a “great personal loss.”
She blew it, big-time. Yay!! Or something…
n her remarks to the auto dealers group, Clinton waxed eloquent about her own family’s love of cars, but conceded that she hasn’t been behind the wheel since she was first lady.
“The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996, and I remember it very well,” she said. “Unfortunately, so does Secret Service, which is why I haven’t driven since then.”
CBS looked into this further (warning, video autoplays).
Speaking before a conference of car dealers on Monday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday confessed that she hasn’t driven a car in nearly two decades.
“One of the regrets I have about public life is that I can’t drive anymore,” Clinton said in a speech at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) meeting in New Orleans. “The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996.”
She joked, “My husband thinks that’s a blessing, but he’s the one who should talk.”
Former presidents and first ladies receive lifetime Secret Service protection, so Clinton’s admission isn’t that surprising. Former President Bill Clinton has similarly lamented the fact that he doesn’t drive. President Obama, meanwhile, told a group of auto workers in 2012 that he intends to buy a Chevy Volt and drive it himself when he leaves the White House.
Wow! Good thing they’re democrats, so that when ordinary people find out they don’t share the common-man’s everyday struggles, they’re not hurt by it or anything. Of course, in the case of the dems, we’re talking about the political party that wants to make more rules about what cars we should buy.
They’re not doing what we have to do, yet they want to make rules about how we should do these things so that it’s harder for us to do them. And everyone seems to know all about this, including their allies as well as their opposition. So why do they have allies?
A dog would never vote for a politician that would make it harder for the dog to go outside and water the bushes. A cat would never vote for a politician that would make it harder for the cat to catch mice. A bird would never vote for a politician that would make it harder to build a nest.
