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...
GOPUsa. Regarding the Navy yard shooting, and Piers Morgan making an ass out of himself about it:
The question is… why? Why promote “gun free” zones when ANYONE, even a liberal, would know that it means the only person who will have a gun is the bad guy. Why make American society into one big pond of sitting ducks?
It seems like liberals want to feel good about themselves regardless of the consequences. Did it ever occur to them that creating an atmosphere in which one race (any race) can feel like they can do anything and the media and politicians will be on their side could have devastating consequences?
The mind of a liberal is almost impossible to understand. They are so bent on making themselves feel good, but they pay little attention to the people they say they are helping. If you can figure them out, you are certainly smarter than I am.
I don’t think we can lump them all together. Theirs is an ideology built on deception, and where you have deception you must necessarily have deceivers and deceived people. Where you have those, you have different factions of people toiling away working toward different goals, with different priorities. At least two sets; two at the very least. Were they truly unified, there wouldn’t be any need for deception.
In the comments, I thought JDZ brought up a great point:
One obvious difference between a conservative and a liberal is how they approach budget management, and to show the effects of these differences, just compare the fiscal sta[t]us of a Republican controlled state or city to a Democrat controlled state or city. Every conservative state has their finances under control or improving whereas most liberal run states are sliding even more into growing budget deficits with higher taxes and fees in an attempt to stop the bleeding.
The liberal mindset seems to feed on political correctness and social justice as the focus of human life while conservatives embrace the whole spectrum of human life with individual freedom and responsibility being a fundamental premise in their lives. Conservatives are more pragmatic and fully embrace the basic thought that the individual most create an independent life for themselves through our free enterprise American [capitalistic] system whereas liberals embrace socialism and a lower standard of living built around a nannystate government providing more and more welfare like government subsidies for more and more people. The connection between “makers” and “takers” seems to be missing in the liberal mindset. They fail to acknowledge that for millions of people to be living off of government handouts (takers), the government has to confiscate earnings of taxpayers (makers) and that this dynamic is a destructive dynamic when unbounded through unreasonableness, and is the core reason fr the failure of socialism across the history of the world.
Liberals have a strange view of time; time is the T in the S.T.A.C.I. quintet of reasons why liberal ideas always turn out to be wrong. Any honest inspection of these conservative vs. liberal states & counties, is going to eventually conclude that the difference has to do with looking down the road. Conservatives do and liberals don’t. A great example of this is the bill our Gov. is about to sign raising the minimum wage to ten dollars an hour. There are many other examples, but let’s just look at that one. Who, in their heart of hearts, thinks this won’t raise the price of goods & services, and drive businesses out of the state. Who? I’m sure you can find some liberals who will mouth or write some words about “making the economy better for the least among us” and so forth, but you’d never get them to actually bet anything on it. What they’re doing by arguing this all has to do with looking good in the moment. Winning the argument. That’s the eminent trend: Winning the argument and looking good, to other liberals, as opposed to acting toward the realization and ultimate fulfillment of long-term goals.
