9 Years Later

9 Years Later published on No Comments on 9 Years Later

It was December 30, 2007 that I wrote this posting:

This Blog will be for the discussion of Politics and News. With Any luck, it will be successful.

via The start of something new… | Political Byline.

That above was the first entry on my new blog political byline; after my first one, The Populist was hacked, either by hackers in some foreign country or by neocons, who were pissed at me over something I had written.  Either way, I lost of years worth of work; due to some crappy hosting that I was really not even paying for. The hosting company folded, for what that is really worth.

2006 and 2007, feels now like an eternity ago. How things have changed! Bush is gone, Iraq is over; and now, it’s blew up again. Al-Qaeda is now taking a backseat to a group called ISIS; and they ain’t playing either! Obama has come and is about gone. The Tea Party rose, got exploited, and fizzled out. Ron Paul retired and now, his kid Rand is running for President. Hillary Clinton Ran, got defeated, by a black man and now, tomorrow is going to announce, again. New names: Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker. It is all rather strange.

When I started in 2006, social media was non-existent. Trackbacks were the lifeblood of blogging. New names: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Pinterest. Cell Phones or smartphones, as they’re called now; basically rule us. Before I got this silly Galaxy S4, the last phone I owned was a Sanyo (I think?!?!?!) flip phone —- Egad, remember those? Now, apps are a big part of my life; I have 8 screens of them on my phone! In the days before smartphones, the first thing I would do, when my eyes opened in the morning, was go take a leak; now, I check my phone.

In the old days, if something big happened, my Mom would IM me or I’d hear about it some other way. Now, if a big story breaks; my phone goes nuts with alerts. I do everything from set my alarm to wake up to timing hamburgers on the grill with this thing. I even usually call in my refills for prescriptions with this thing. I don’t even have to climb the stairs anymore, except to grab my daily three square meals or take a leak.

The funny thing is, the Galaxy S4 is old technology now. They have a Galaxy S5, S6 and S6 edge now. Jebus, can we slow down, just a little? I’m just getting comfortable with this phone and now, its old hat. :roll:

9 Years. That’s a long time. I’m still that kid from southwest Detroit; an analog kid, living in this digital world:

…and everything has been good…..so far:

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. 😀

Andrew Sullivan calls it quits

Andrew Sullivan calls it quits published on 1 Comment on Andrew Sullivan calls it quits

This is mildly surprising.

One of the things I’ve always tried to do at the Dish is to be up-front with readers. This sometimes means grotesque over-sharing; sometimes it means I write imprudent arguments I have to withdraw; sometimes it just means a monthly update on our revenues and subscriptions; and sometimes I stumble onto something actually interesting. But when you write every day for readers for years and years, as I’ve done, there’s not much left to hide. And that’s why, before our annual auto-renewals, I want to let you know I’ve decided to stop blogging in the near future.

via A Note To My Readers « The Dish.

Sullivan has been blogging for a very long time, since before 9/11. 15 years. That is an eternity in online years. I can understand the reasoning:

I’ve had increasing health challenges these past few years. They’re not HIV-related; my doctor tells me they’re simply a result of fifteen years of daily, hourly, always-on-deadline stress. These past few weeks were particularly rough – and finally forced me to get real.

I can totally relate. Sitting on my butt and writing for 10 years, basically caused me to get type II diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I mean, it does run in my family; but sitting around and writing did not help any either.

I did not always agree with Sullivan, but I did think that he was a talented writer.I hate to see someone just walk away from the blogging scene. It causes the field to become more bare. I think lots of opinion is good; and Sullivan had a legit position — even if I did not agree with it.

I wish him and his partner the best.

So glad that I am an only child

So glad that I am an only child published on No Comments on So glad that I am an only child

This was my thought after reading these three postings over at Protein Wisdom, ran by Jeff Goldstein

Basically, Jeff’s brother is severely screwing his Mother, who is dying with cancer, over. I give Jeff credit, he is handling that little situation very well and with much restraint. Because if it was me; I would be going to florida, finding the nearest gun store, picking up a nice .357 and a box of shells.

My best to Jeff in getting that little situation straightened out.

Responding to stupidity

I rarely, if ever, engage in Blog wars anymore. Because quite frankly, I think they suck and they do nothing, but cause problems for all parties involved.

However, when I see that someone takes it upon themselves to make baseless accusations against me; I feel the need to correct the record. What I am referring to is some blowhole on a blogspot webblog took it upon himself to accuse me of being a lap dog of Rod Dreher’s. Now, had he taken the time to search my site and see that I have disagreed with Rod Dreher in the past on this blog and my previous one; he would see that I am not a lap dog of anyone at all. But, no, this clueless blowhole, who is obviously an insecure person, who is trying to make a name for himself, by tossing rocks at blogs, like mine.

Now, whether this guy is jewish or neocon or both, I really cannot tell and honestly, I could really care less. Although, from what I read over at that blog, namely about myself. He sure is acting like one of them, like this guy here.  However, if he is going to directly link to my blog, he might try doing his research first, before pontificating.

As for what I wrote, I don’t retract that one iota; I will stand for Christ, before I will ever stand with those who deny that He is the Messiah. If this blowhole has a problem with that; he needs to take up with the Lord, who spoke this world of ours into existence in six short days.

Again, I really hate to go there. But, I felt the need to set this little ankle biter straight. Also too: Dude, get a WordPress blog! Hosting is not that pricey anymore, If you cannot afford a domain and a wordpress blog, you need to get out of blogging. Because Blogspot is about yesterday’s news. I’m just saying…

 

 

This is good news

This is good news published on 1 Comment on This is good news

Obviously. I am not a fan of this guy….

But, this is good news for all bloggers everywhere.

I am hearing that the guy will appeal; but it is going to cost him, big time.

The reason this is a good thing, is that one of the biggest fears of being a blogger, is being sued for what you write. It has a chilling effect on freedom of speech. Thankfully, the right people won this case and that’s a good thing.
