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...
“Newt at his best,” says Weasel Zippers. And I agree, it’s certainly right up there.
This whole thing with The View, it’s quite indefensible. Provided, I mean, one concedes that the presidency has something to do with things above & beyond public relations. That’s what big-eared Nero has been doing, right? Just P.R.
Fundraisers, golf, vacations. Now you could make the case that some of these things are legitimate expenditures of time…not a strong case, but you could make the case. That’s a different thing entirely from saying President Obama is managing His calendar, and the priorities upon it, in any kind of a proper way. Speaker Gingrich is correct, President Obama’s just not being serious.
Frankly, I’d rather have thirty years of presidents like that fool Todd Akin compared to four years of an Obama.
This attitude…this “In what new creative ways can the country worship Barack Obama today?” thing…four years ago it was just annoying. Four years ago it was just a tell-tale sign that our free press had abandoned the critical thinking involved in its obligation to us.
Now, it’s nothing short of dereliction of duty.
It’s a problem many years in the making. It’s been building outside of politics. People say “Omigosh, I’m just SO busy!” and you’ll notice it’s always the same people saying that. And they don’t act like busy people. They don’t have heads crammed chock silly full of the details they’ve managed to cram in, as a first step to getting the things done with what meager amounts of time they’ve managed to scavenge…like genuinely busy people do. There isn’t any great variety in the things they do manage to get done, from one week to the next. None of that desperate, productive-as-can-be-managed juggling you see truly busy people doing. It’s pretty much the same stuff attended, and the same stuff neglected. The months come in, the months go out, it doesn’t change.
What that stupid catchphrase means is “Omigosh, I suck at managing time.”
Screw this glory hound. Once again, I see that if I agreed with President Obama on each issue He has, He would remain among the worst presidents ever. Because He spends too much time screwing around, and He isn’t effective. He just plain sucks.
