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...
We’re getting a better picture of the iPresident’s incoming administration. It doesn’t look good. His own supporters aren’t terribly happy.
You know what “change” I’d like to see? I’d like to see The iPresident Messiah Man-God questioned by someone who talks exactly the way He does…”wait wait wait, hold on, hold on, hold on.” Does He lie awake late at night reading books on how to be a prick? He’s got this condescending way of talking down, like He’s trying to restore order where there previously was chaos, and meanwhile He is the one interrupting. What an asshole.
This is how He got elected. Any question not convenient to Him, He wanted treated like a child chewing dinner with his mouth hanging open, or burping at the dinner table without saying “excuse me.” That was just simply inappropriate. We don’t live in a country in which questioning our most powerful elected officials, is some kind of breach of etiquette. There are other countries like that. This country is supposed to try not to be like that. You dick.
Biden will be given nothing to do, it would seem. That genius Joe Biden, you remember him…walking encyclopedia of all this foreign-policy knowledge, so much more of an intellectual powerhouse than that dimwit Sarah Palin. Remember all that?
Aides say Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama sometimes rib each other in private meetings, and they maintain that Mr. Obama was not unduly angry at Mr. Biden for his gaffe predicting that Mr. Obama would be tested by a world crisis in his first six months in office.
Since then, however, Mr. Biden has not had much to say to the news media.
Today, two new reports indicate that Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) has engaged in further conduct meriting the attention of the House Ethics Committee. The New York Times has reported Rep. Rangel was instrumental in preserving a tax loophole benefitting Nabors Industries at the same time he was soliciting the company’s chief executive for a donation to the Rangel School. In a less serious but still troubling report, the Washington Post revealed Rep. Rangel took a property tax break intended for permanent primary residences on his Washington, D.C. home while declaring New York City as his permanent residence.
The Ethics Reform Act of 1989 and House rules prohibit members from asking for anything of value from “anyone who seeks official action from the House, does business with the House or has interests which may be substantially affected by the performance of official duties.” Members are also prohibited from taking official action to induce another to provide a benefit to a third party.
Well, it’s a good thing we got rid of those slimy Republicans with their corporate buddies and their loopholes and what-not…those ethically compromised Republicans. You recall that too, right? It wasn’t that long ago.
Buyers’ remorse indeed. If this election was like a handyman fixing up your kitchen, or that funny rattling noise your car was making…you’d be flipping through the yellow pages already, flailing around for someone with better references who can do the repairs all over again, right. Him, and the Better Business Bureau.
Well done, voters. You’ll have a chance to try and fix this…in about two years. God only knows what’s going to happen up until then.
