As some of you probably already know, I don't like liberals much. In fact, that's actually an understatement – I like them way less than Islamofascists.
But now does that mean that I would kill every last liberal in a most horrible manner if given the time and the opportunity and immunity from prosecution? Probably not. I have a short attention span.
However, It did pique my interest when Snowblower mentioned the death penalty recently, because not only has it now been proven to be a detriment to murder, but I am on record as saying that if the various states would only just advertise for executioners, I'd pay THEM for the opportunity! You know how people say there's one thing they really want to do before they die? Well:
"Hi, I'm Ted, I'll be your executioner tonight… can I get you a cocktail"
Anyway, we've only just begun, and I'm already off topic.
So I got this private message from someone who, as always, shall remain nameless, and Aput felt I was "rather harsh" in my response to Soggy's tripe. "Rather harsh," "rather pointless," let's call the whole thing off…
My first concern is that if I was "rather harsh," then I am failing utterly. My aim is not to make things -"rather unpleasant" for liberals, it's to let them know that there's "wretched refuse," "whale shit," and then them.
They have virtually nothing of value to offer.
And that brings me to how people seem to perceive blogs. Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of you view this as an opportunity to exchange ideas?
That is SO not how I see it.
Because generally speaking, I not only have all the ideas I need, and I know what works, what will work, and what I'm willing to tolerate if it differs from that I know works and will work. So, for example, although I do not believe in God, I see the value of religion. It offers comfort and discipline. Does it infringe on things I would rather see left alone? Yes. So does atheism.
So this blog is not a place for the free exchange of ideas – unless they're mine… If people, especially liberals want to express themselves and get feedback from a bunch of others, that's what forums are for.
And that's why I abandoned that format – people have the craziest ideas.
Although I should probably offer this disclaimer now: The ideas expressed by this writer do not necessarily reflect his opinions or the opinions of the blog bearing his name.
What this blog primarily is… and amazingly, Henrietta got it, it's a place where I can play off the various comments and personalities I encounter. I figure that there are plenty of commentary writers out there who do that sort of things better and with much more seriousness and discipline than I am willing to devote to it, and so, when I read things people post on Vox, I'm much more interested in finding the odd line or idea that strikes me as worth exploiting… er… commenting on.
It's also why I name names – it's important to connect the person with the stupidity… or the brilliance, as the case may be, even if the latter is fantastically harder to come by. Then again, 99% of people graduated in the bottom 90% of their class, so….
Aput's bigger point was that I shouldn't have posted my reply to Soggy as a separate entry and that I shouldn't have assigned it to a group, apparently because it exploits someone who was probably in special-ed.
To that I say, I felt it would have been impolite of me to ask.
And one last thing, I'm not sure if it's a Muslim thing or an Aput thing, but I told him not to address me again until he had his head on straight. So what happens next? He questions my judgment? Does that seem like a straightened out Malaysian to you?
Not to mention that he's defending someone who ostensibly wants to take his religion away from him… unless he knows something we don't… ?!? Like there's a Muslim or two in the Soggy family tree, maybe?
Plus, I'm pretty sure SOG's gay…. and I KNOW Snowy is!
My concern now is that Aput won't get his head straight before I get mine really bent…
