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 liberals have used the buckshot-approach to try to generate a scandal out of the reading of the Constitution in Congress, with dry-humping stories like this for example, and this. It seems they want to position themselves as being against this, and get themselves on record that way, but I got a feeling that if I say something like “liberals are against the reading of the Constitution in Congress” I’m going to get back a whole bunch of don’t-you-dare. It’s an old rule. I think Ann Coulter once observed that if it was possible to take an anti-American position in Scrabble or Parcheesi, liberals would take that position and then scold you with genuine hatred if you notice it & point it out.
You know, I didn’t think this going in, but…it seems to me the Republican establishment, breaking form from tradition, have thought this out better than the democrat establishment. The “Joe Six-Pack” voter, the guy whose vote means so much because he doesn’t know a single thing about Washington politics and doesn’t care to learn, has now seen it up close for two or three days solid: The democrat party wants to govern without any restraint. They think the Constitution is an obstacle, and not an authoritative one, just a pain-in-the-ass one. It’s undeniable now.
That was a good message to get out. Well done.
But let’s stop talking about the establishment. Let’s talk about the media…the liberals who claim not to be liberals. Chris Jansing — pretty girl, but what an airhead. Complicated? Really, Chris?
What kind of life do you need to live, in order to breeze through it in blissful ignorance of the complications the politicians hand down to the rest of us? It’s obvious Chris Jansing’s tax accountant gets the whole job done, presenting Ms. Jansing with not a single piece of paperwork other than the signature blocks…and that must be a short meeting. This must be an accountant who tried to explain some decision made to her, years and years ago, and got back the “I can’t hear you la la la” and since then has given up on it. I guess she’s never seen that U-turn sign that tripped me up a year and a half ago, or anything like it…maybe she rides in taxicabs, maybe she has a chauffeur.
I’m trying to envision this…how do you think it’s a problem when the lawmakers have to do something complicated? How do you not understand the law can be a complicated thing sometimes, and that’s just the way it is?
Or does she really think it should be complicated for the rest of us to follow the law, and simple to pass the laws? When, for the rest of us, following the law is something we just have to do to get our stuff done, whereas for those who make the law, making the law is what they do and they get paid handsomely for it.
I’m taking all these possibilities into account as best I can. But still, all the conclusions come to one single point: Jansing is intellectually anemic.
It’s a complicated process to pass laws now? Horrors. What a frightening thought. ::eyeroll::
