In Need of a Reminder

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...

The Constitutional Crusader.


  1. No worries, you're not alone. I used to read liberal sites and try to engage them, but it's pointless exercise in fruitlessness.

    Some random liberal blogger found my most recent post and posted it on his (or maybe her?) site and then responded in loony liberal fashion to each point I made in a blog post that I clearly stated was a "vent" and as such posited overly simplistic solutions to real problems we face. Talk about bizarre. I didn't even read the whole thing, it defied logic and was riddled with typical liberal knee jerk talking points and ad hominem attacks. *shrug*

    Don't let it bother you; they're really just sad, delusional nutjobs who wouldn't know a free or original thought if it rose up out of their tofu surprise and bit them on the nose.

  2. I had a troll or two that used to visit my site, and as Fuzzy says, don't waste good energy engaging them as it is a total waste...

    Fight on Patriot...

    Stop by BAA and see what you think about my idea of wearing BLUE on Wednesday...

  3. Sad to say, logic is kryptonite to most of the Left. Rosie O'Donnell captured the essence of today's Left with the very recent quote, "Your feelings are more important than your facts."

    With that kind of deliberate and prideful stupidity, there's little hope of reason seeping in.
