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 big thing that happened yesterday, apart from Commander Armstrong leaving Earth for the last time, was the Obamapologist democrats getting caught in another lie. But this one is not just another cash-versus-accrual-basis-accounting, could-be-construed-as lie, this is a forehead-smacking, “how did they ever think they could get away with that” lie.
Much has been said already about the “Republican woman voting for Obama” who turned out to be a posing die-hard lefty activist. After the info had a chance to come out, it emerged that another so-called “Republican woman” had a similar background. At this point there is very little to be added, except one thing…
First, watch, for context…
For me to make my observation, I must zoom out, use my recollection, think back; it will likewise be necessary to think back in order to get it. But review recent history about the lies coming out of the defenders of the current President. Think about the subject matter. Notice a pattern?
They all have to do with two things: What’s-everyone-else-doing, and what’s in the bargain for me, me, me. They’re all lies that wouldn’t work on real Americans. As statements, they are all statements that would have negligible-to-nonexistent effect on people who actually build stuff. Free stuff from the government? How’s everybody else voting? What the hell do I care?
But, the little people are all worried about their free shit…that, and how do I have to vote to fit in, like they’re still in middle school or something. And, of course, it is offensive in the extreme to ponder seriously what the Obama democrats think about women. And infuriating. Odd reactions to elicit in people, when the core concern is supposed to be about not-offending-someone. There are maybe two seconds — out of 156 — that have to do with “equal pay,” the rest of it is all birth control, abortions and Roe v. Wade. And, tellingly, the ad signs off, finishing strong, with one of the “Republican women for Obama” saying “If we don’t look out for our interests, how do we expect someone else to?”
The entire perspective is diseased. There’s no other word for it. This is all an election is ever about, just groups of people getting together and then whoever is outnumbered is forced to do things to suit the other people who did the outnumbering? That’s the whole point, really? Election time…let’s raid that billfold.
This is the attitude that made America a superpower, huh?
Invented the telephone and the light bulb.
Defeated the Nazis and the Communists, secured “last man standing” status after the Cold War.
Put a man on the moon and launched the space shuttles.
I don’t think so…and I don’t think the America I know, appreciates this kind of message too much…
I think there’s a Republican mole in Barack Obama’s campaign. It keeps doing dumb, stupid things, putting out this stuff that makes me think “Whoever did this should be fired before sundown…no, wait…now that I think on it, I hope that doesn’t happen.”
Our current President is telling lies. They are lies a technologically savvy president, even feeling somehow inclined to tell such lies, would not tell, because it is only too obvious how the liar would be caught. But the lies are not even directed toward Americans who want to be part of the American legacy, Americans who are interested in building great things. That’s my observation: Just like His statements that actually have some truth to them, His lies are only addressed to a part of America. To the little people with little hearts and little brains, who just want to do what they think everybody else is already doing. And pocket lots of free stuff, with the bill sent to strangers.
