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...
Had a thought for the Hello Kitty of Blogging, but figured it wasn’t quite as appropriate there, it’s more fitting as a blog post.
Conservatism does have a problem but “how to connect” is not it. The problem it faces is one liberalism hasn’t even had to face.
Conservatism is a reluctant involvement in politics by people who have been cornered and forced to make the time for it, who’d rather be spending that time building things that pull in the money. The people who make up conservatism, therefore, are accustomed to conversations where: If the other person gets up and leaves, you have failed. THAT is the problem. Politics, as we have seen over the last few weeks, to several years, works the other way. If the other person gets up and leaves, that makes you the last-man-standing, and now you can have everything the way you want it because the other person can’t even vote “present.”
Therefore, American politics looks like this:
Liberals say “We demand the country think of creative forces as destructive ones, and vice-versa.” The task for conservatives is to show up — to say, “No, things are what they are, they are not their opposites, so we’re not buying into this nonsense.” But then, get back to creating things. When the other side doesn’t have to do any such thing. And the conflict is resolved by way of last-man-standing.
