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...
Conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly took aim at “unmarried women” at a recent fundraiser and in an interview with TPM, saying that they overwhelmingly support President Obama and are all on welfare. Democrats aim to exploit the comments to pressure the more than 60 Republican candidates who have earned Schlafly’s endorsement.
“Unmarried women, 70% of unmarried women, voted for Obama, and this is because when you kick your husband out, you’ve got to have big brother government to be your provider,” said Schlafly, president of Eagle Forum and infamous for her opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment.
It is revealed in the audio, although not in TPM’s article, that Schlafly had a coherent point to make about this. Side note: Hey TPM, do you realize that under our new Shirley Sherrod standard, this means you can be sued?
Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Schlafly’s point is just one that intelligent and observant people have been noticing for a very long time now.
The democrat party has positioned itself as a savior for people who are in desperate situations. And so — as you might logically expect — their strategies have evolved into ways to make people more desperate…and to make more people that desperate.
Yes, Schlafly should apologize. She should say “I’m sorry I ‘singled out’ — no pun intended — the single moms. They are, as I noted at the time, most statistically significant to Obama’s victory, but the problem is so much bigger than them. Other people on welfare, for starters. The illegal aliens who shouldn’t be voting in the first place. All those people who would rather be gainfully employed who had their jobs taken away by Obama’s policies. Even the banks! The banks who now depend on government largess to keep from folding, the automakers, the car dealers. The dependency, the addiction to paternalistic government, it’s everywhere. Our country decided two years ago it wanted hope and change, and now we see what that is and there’s nothing hopeful about it.”
Something like that.
So let me get this straight democrats. You want to stigmatize and scandalize the Republicans for putting forward the appearance of making a plan to stop this? This is going to make all of America really angry with them, huh?
Go to town. Do it. Can’t wait to watch it happen.
