At the end of the debt talks we will have more debt and our taxes will be raised. End of story.
The worst migraine aura I've ever experienced happened after reading a HuffPo story and a bunch of comments. I went on an expedition over there to "know what the enemy is thinking" only to be reminded that the enemy doesn't think - they feeeeeeeeeeel.
To make matters worse, I happened upon an article by John Hawkins, The Slow, Painful Coming Death Of The Independent, Conservative Blogosphere. Ordinarily, I wouldn't link to a silly screed such as this but since I'm not a big important blogger like John, I hesitate to be miserly with my linky-love. Because that's the only reason he posted that article. It's called blog whoring. It seems to be working, but not exactly how he expected.
Allow me to sum up his article to save you the pain of actually having to go and read it. If you're a small independent conservative blogger, you may as well put a dagger in your heart and end it all. Consider yourself a loser, unlike John who is big, important, and loved by all.
Hey, John. My friend Zilla has some advice for you:
Well said, Zilla!!
And how about what Jimmy Bise offered up in the way of rebuttal?:
How Selfish Bloggers and a Hapless GOP Are Choking the Life from the Independent, Conservative Blogosphere
i Own The World has the right attitude:
So head on over to iOTW and leave a comment.iOTW is not a large blog, we’re not a small blog. We’re somewhere in the middle. And being in the middle means that there are plenty of blogs we can help. iOTW doesn’t want any conservative blogs going belly up (except maybe some annoying ones – hehe) because that isn’t going to help the overall cause of conservatism.
So, if you have your own blog, no matter how modest or large, please put a link to it in the comment section of this post. I will be maintaining this post and monitoring its progress and bumping it from time to time to the front page. I will also be going to the blogs to poach some posts to include among our daily content.
Here's my message for you, John.
You see, this is my little blog and if I want to post pictures of kitteh's - I will.
