The world, as small as it has become, is far too big to paint.

I've been trying to keep up with things and it's a losing battle. It seems as if I can't spend enough time working, playing, drinking and blogging to get everything done. Well, the working and playing I can live withuot but the drinking and blogging are IMPORTANT. It seems that some folks (Aaron Kinney, you asshole) don't really understand that their opinions, to which they are most certainly entitled are not the great, fundamental truths that the rest of us live by. Aaron fancies himself to be some sort of rugged individualist who knows how the world should really be run. In that regard he is no different than I am. Where our paths diverge is in our method for illuminating those truths for the rest of mankind. I do so on my blog, in posts, and on other blogs in comments. In the event that the blog's author disagrees with me I will either argue with him civilly, or make fun of him. When said blogowner has made it plain that he will simply delete my comments, I stop leaving comments on that blog. Aaron, whose blog I had never visited prior to this evening, has decided that he will continue to put comments here--comments which I will delete as quickly as I see them. There are a few other folks who think like Aaron and their comments are also deleted as soon as I see them. I don't go to their blogs, though, because I have no desire to drive up their stats. I think in Aaron's case I will make an exception. Now, Aaron may actually give a fuck what his readers see on his blog--I, with my few loyal readers, don't really worry too much about that sort of thing. This isn't really what I thought my next post was going to be about, but, wtf, blogs are life in electrons.

Well, I know my blog posts have changed the world. Course, I'm awesome like that.

Everything changed, Red Demo, when you saw the light and came out for Ron Paul; bushels of blog-cash, invites to speak at Christian Camps for Children to be Left Behind (check's in the mail), and a "get out of jail free" card.
Oh, and if the world's too big to paint, do what any other good Republican would:
Make believe it's the color you desire. Done!

Oh, also? Blogger totally sucks.

Ohhh, Aaron. You are so convinced of your own superios intellect. To quote Jon Stewart, "Go fuck yourself." That's all the effort I will waste on you, here or at other sites I've seen you attempt to pollute.

(Word verification: tracking. A real, honest-to-gawd WORD!)

Hi, Mutzali:

Always a pleasure to hear from you, especially when I've just had to flush the punchbowl that Mr. Kinney decided to drop a turd in.

I still have my Australian habit of plugging the bathroom drain when I take a shower in order to save the water, which I bail into a bucket that I use for toilet-flushing. I reckon that Aaron would be a two-bucket flush.

Poor mikey:

He's got so little to do that he lurks around other people's doorsteps and tries to sneak comments onto the threads--tsk, tsk.

Bloggers who delete critical comments are despicable cowards.

BTW, the Loose TN Canon is back

William:

I knowudumean. "Critical" I can handle; critical, rude and to the bone stoopid, otoh...

Glad to see you back!

Jim Voorhies said...

Demo, this is your empire. Aaron needs to realize that emperors can feed him to the lions as a fun pastime. He needs to be grateful that all you do is delete his comments.

And, yes, Mack, you have changed the world.

It's your blog.

It ain't censorship if they have another venue to spew and you don't have to post things you don't care to post (including comments).

Personally, I couldn't care less if anyone reads my blog.

Although, beautiful, young ladies who agree with what I post and believe they might make a good match are always encourages to post comments!
