Required Reading

Still breathing. Panting, actually. I've still not seen a Saturday, excepting Christmas weekend, since October.

And I love it.

I am almost at full stop where blogging is concerned. The reasons are simple and unambiguous:

1. I got into blogs and finally blogging in order to explore ideas and engage in debate.

2. I was ignorant of the true character of the Left. I thought they were too stupid to recognize evil when they saw it. Far from it.

This post I found via American Digest pretty well covers all the ground I've traveled these last few years, and then some.

You argue with a competitor. Even an opponent. but what is become of the part of the American polity that supports creatures like Reid, Pelosi, Gore, and Obama are gone a far, far toss beyond of what "loyal opposition" could ever be stretched to mean.

You defeat an enemy. That's all that's left to do.

My sixty-hour work weeks don't leave me time for proselytizing for individual responsibility and against increased government. I have had time to collect about twenty copies of "Atlas Shrugged" over the years. I drop one or two a week off in various public places.

Sounds silly, you say? Our elected government just spent more money in the last six months than it has in the years since I left high school. Harry Reid is Senate Majority leader, the Republicans ran John McCain for their candidate, Charlie Rangel chairs Ways and Means, and Joe Biden is in line of succession to the Presidency of the United States.

Not so silly, I'm thinking.
