What an interesting week its been. I’ve changed cars almost as often as socks, I’ve lowered myself to the level of a nitwit economist, I continue to distill a high level of either antipathy or apathy amongst my readers, and I’ve been called names again. Hell, I even called a couple. Work has been somewhat of a hoot, and the kids are grounded for intransigence above and beyond the call of duty.
The much ballyhooed return of MDVP. Not a moment to soon either. I was annoying the hell out of some people while I awaited the return of the ultimate compassionate conservative.
Antisocialist has been added to the blogroll. Another of those I don’t always agree with, but if I agree with anyone some of the time I find that to be an amazing achievement. He does an incredible job of sourcing his articles, and has some excellent posts on his blog.
I’ve also added a screed apart. He writes some intriguing stuff about the shape our society is in. He even uses charts and pictures so I don’t have to work to hard for it.
anita of whacked out, tormented stories without endings fame has a journal as well. She intentionally hid this from me so that her friends wouldn’t know she reads my blog. she is a smart person.
Other than that I’ve found the usual intolerant nonsense for the most part. I think I’ll do a blog soon giving links to places that will make you piss your pants laughing. Amazingly they aren’t all pauliac blogs. I met an economist who flat rails against the use of knowledge, instead offering numbers as a reasonable option. The problem is all his math is flawed. I actually like people like this. You can go to there blogs, say anything you wish, and have a good argument. You can even change your point several times (i know because I did this with the economist) and they won’t even notice. They are so busy trying to convert you they have no clue what you are saying. Blogging is a gas. Of course reading these blogs is like watching two monkeys bang a football. It’s all wasted effort.
The rum is chilling, the lime is sliced, the coke is new and therefore fizzy, and it is almost time for cuba libres’…
