Just like most of you, I read a lot. I love books.
For those of you who've joined the kindle revolution, I don't hate you. I'm just not with you on that technological concession
yet. I still need the feel and smell of book pages, thank you very much. I fear, eventually, libraries will become a thing of the past. I try not to think about it, but it really bothers me that my future grandkiddies might not have the library experience I did.
Where am I going with this? Well, I read a lot of blogs too. Today I read a blog post about writer's block, which I've been having a lot of lately. The blogger made that the topic of her post. So here I am too, borrowing her idea.
I enjoy reading political blogs. But they aren't my favorite. There's nothing wrong with blogging about politics all the time. If that's your thing, have at it. Seriously, we should all do what we love. I also enjoy reading a few favorite political blogs regularly.
But my preference is the personal blogs. We're here on earth to connect and relate to one another. We are each other's inspiration. Every creation in our entire world is based on human interdependence. So yeah, I like to read about human dynamics. Sometimes I find it in a political blog and sometimes I find it in a blogger's public journal.
I'm blocked. So when I'm not working, I've been reading, getting into the heads of my fellow humans.
I like reading Rush Limbaugh because he tells it like it is. He speaks his truth, doesn't matter if he comes off sounding brash. I don't care for sugar-coating. Give it to me straight. From Rush:
Did you ever think in your lifetime you would ever see an angry white old guy be so popular with the news media and with the American left? I thought they didn't like angry white guys. They happen to love Joe Biden, an angry white guy.
I am aware that the consensus opinion seems to be that Biden was mean, rude, and disrespectful. What I want to say to you is that the Joe Biden that you saw last night is the Democrat Party. It's the modern Democrat Party, particularly the last 12 years.
By the way, when I did a internet search for pictures of Rush, I saw a labels of him as a racist. This reflects the mentality of half the country, which I reference at the end of this post. It's pretty sad that you allow yourself to be manipulated by others in mainstream media. If Rush is racist, then so am I. So are we all.
Thomas Sowell, on the other hand, takes the scholarly and polite approach with his editiorials. I think he's one of the great thinkers of our time, IMHO. From Thomas:
Like so many people who have been beaten in a verbal encounter, and who can think of clever things to say the next day after it is all over, President Obama, after his clear loss in his debate with Mitt Romney, called Governor Romney a “phony.”
If you want to know what community organizers do, this is it — rub people’s emotions raw to hype their resentments. And this was Barack Obama in his old community-organizer role, a role that should have warned those who thought that he was someone who would bring us together, when he was all too well practiced in the arts of polarizing us.
I have no Obama/Biden fanatics to quote.
I can take the liberal blogs in small doses. Have you ever immersed yourself in illogical banter? You come away feeling confused, possibly light-headed. You blink a lot and ask yourself, What just happened? Sorry, I have no quotes from the adoring mass on the other side of the party line.
And finally, I also like to read Michael Goodwin, a Foxnews columnist. He also writes for a major liberal publication in New York. I find him to be as fair and honest as a writer can be in crooked main stream media these days.
The Democratic Party has lost its mind and its way. Its political philosophy of inclusion and progress has been consumed by virulent strains of anger, dishonesty and intolerance. Its leaders don’t just want to win an election; they want to silence any American who disagrees with them.
Rush, Thomas, and Michael said it all for me. The media and the democratic party is a wrap as far as credibility. Half of the country has revealed themselves as either unintelligent or emotional or both, so they choose Obama no matter what.
So if you don't mind, I have other things I'd like to blogs about. I think it'll help to unblock my writing mind.
That's my truth and I'm sticking with it.
