I am, as the post says, in need of a reminder. Of what, you ask? Of the fact that I'm not alone in the universe.
This request comes because I have delved into the belly of the beast recently, visiting the left wing side of the blogosphere in an attempt to "stir the pot" as it were. One such blog is called J. Miller Rampant, and I am beginning to regret ever going there. Not that I didn't understand what I was getting into. I did. To a point.
When I first visited this blog it was actually completely by accident. I was randomly searching for other conservative blogs to plug my own site on to grow my following, when I happened across J. Miller. I decided to give him a read in an attempt to see what the other side was saying. Well, as you might have guessed, this guy didn't have much to say beyond the usual liberal talking points of "Bush failed", "trickle down doesn't work", and the like.
Well, I did what anyone does when faced with illogical conclusions. I asked questions. J. didn't like that too much, apparently, as he and his followers attacked me personally for daring to bring to light the fallacies in liberal thinking.
I'm not sure what possessed me. I thought that maybe I could reach a civil discourse with SOMEONE out there on the other side, for I know there are level-headed lefties out there if you know where to look for them. I know one of them lives in San Fran here in California, but so far he's the only one I know. Well, him and my fiancee's aunt Susan. My own family has their share of misguided left-wingers, but only one of them as far as I know is of the Kool-Aid drinking variety.
Another reason I'm putting out the call for a reminder that others think the way I do is because one jackwad decided to attack not me, but my fiancee personally for daring to express her views on everyone's least favorite lunatic Michael Newdow, who was so enthused about the Supreme Court ruling he was waiting for that when he heard said "Hmm. Bummer." and moved on with his life.
This is all I have to say to people who would dare spew hatred at my family for exercising their God-given right to speak their mind: Judge not, lest ye be judged. The left is always touting tolerance and inclusion, but did you ever notice how they never have to be the inclusive ones? They can exclude whoever they want from whatever they want, and nobody on the left bats an eye. But when a right-winger DARES discriminate against ANYTHING, it's national news. I would try to wrap my brain around it but if the tissue ruptures I'll have an aneurysm.
If you would like to know how the above incident went down in full, feel free to visit "Musings of a Bored Mind" by Daphne of Argos. It was quite the heated argument for a while, and I regret allowing the dingus who started things to drag me to his level.
Continuing to fight the good fight, despite fatigue...
