Afflicting the Comfortable

I’m sorry, but Weekend News Digest will be delayed.


Not because I’m on style strike.

See?  All better.

But simply because I’m so outraged by lynch mob mentality that I can hardly type straight, let alone cut and paste.

If I could beam right into your brain the neurons I would twist around are the ones that seek approval from groupthink.  The ones that depend on other’s opinion rather than standing up for what is right.  The ones that can’t read plain english and think that profanity is truth.  The ones that remember your name Spongebob and are not all about Fine Dining and Breathing.

Not so much of that here and it’s a good thing, but it is a cautionary tale for us all.

I don’t give a rat’s ass what you think of me.  Less than that if you are simply an unprincipled wind shifting hypocrite.

Let me state in a meta sense that if I EVER see such pitchfork persecution here you’re ban hammered to oblivion.

After I play with you for a while, it is my cat-like nature.

    I like to sleep, eat, have sex and then repeat.

    Profanity is the never the truth in itself.  Often it proceeds the truth and occasionally it is uttered subsequent to the truth being laid out all truthy like.

    I don’t care for pitchforks, thank you.

    Enjoy your vent!  I had fun with it!

  5. even though you don’t give a rat’s ass what I think of you since I am a cat I can say we are picky picky lot and I remain an ardent admirer.

    And I don’t give a rat’s ass that you don’t give a rat’s ass about whether I should care a rat’s ass.

    the season premier of “Burn Notice.”  Sam, aka Bruce Campbell of Brisco County Jr and Sam Raimi films fame, said:

    I’d hope you didn’t resort to bannings here, regardless.  We’ve managed to keep the banning here extremely low (despite some early hiccups), which is how I’d prefer it in a well-running community.  

    Have you ever heard back from the dkos admins about the possible DOS attack?

    you are loved here is your wonderfully cryptic posts. Since I no longer frequent the orange bubble for sanity reasons but as you mentioned trolls, I kind of figured it was that place. You are a braver person than I to tread the threads over there.  However, I will always have your back and if you need, I will venture once more into the orange kool aid sea to defend the 1st Amendment and a friend.

  6. through the generalized assholery you were subject to ek in the threads and the group bullying was just pathetic.

    I was at work last night when all of those stupid diaries started and that was some serious blog nonsense.

  7. this essay.  I don’t need to read them.  Been there.  Done that.  Don’t want a flashback.

    You do get a special award for trying over at GOS.  Here:

    This site was supposed to be a place where you don’t criticize the DK site. Now you’re all over it. I’m guessing because you haven’t received any compensation from them for your own blog. LOL.
