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...
The Blaze. Another actor is turned off.
It’s hard to believe in the presidency anymore. I voted for Obama, I love Obama, but I don’t want to see Obama on “The View,” I don’t want to see him playing Frisbee, I don‘t want to know that it’s $40,000 a plate at George Clooney’s house, and I adore George Clooney. Hey man, I‘ve got a friend of mine who’s got a $7 an hour job at Dunkin Donuts and he can’t get a $9 an hour job over at the country club because there are so many people in front of him. I believe that the president should be his desk all day. I don’t want to see him on vacation, I don‘t want to see him at Martha’s Vineyard, I don’t want to see Mrs. Obama in Spain. No, no, I do not want to see that because everybody’s struggling. These CEOs shouldn’t be taking all this money. No Rolls Royces. No private planes.
The “don’t want to see” stuff really says a mouthful; that’s the whole deal right there.
Because if Obamandias is re-elected, and this is just a matter of simple common sense, you can tap dance around it all day if you like but it’s still true: He can’t spend the next four years killing Osama bin Laden a few more times.
But He can spend that block of time re-appearing on daytime talk shows. Which is precisely what He’ll do. Fly around, play golf, make the most Super Awesome Mega Wonderful Speech Ever, play more golf, crack some jokes about how Michelle won’t let him do something…and, when the country’s pain becomes even more severe, remind us that He inherited this mess. In front of microphones. And teleprompters.
And then He’ll appear on some more shows.
The killer knockout punch against the idea of re-electing Obama? If He loses…the list of things He will be doing, will be no different. Not even a tiny bit. You take out the impact of all the executive decisions that Romney & O would decide differently…and we can argue awhile about whether there’s something considerable there or not…what we’re left with is, who is going to pay for Obama’s jet fuel between 2013 and 2017. That’s about it. You should vote for the President if you want more pug-ugly liberal spinster women being nominated to the Supreme Court, and if you want the taxpayers to pay for Michelle’s vacations and Barack’s speeches. Those are the two big gains. Barack Obama having stature and profile…people listening to Barack Obama…Barack Obama flying around the country, having teleprompters and adoring fans…that isn’t part of the choice, if these factors don’t change between the choices. We’re essentially voting on where the bill is sent.
