I apologize if the name change on the blog causes any confusion or inconvenience but the more I think about it the less inclined I am to declare myself as a staunch Liberal like I once did. —– I find that if I am going to be totally honest in expressing my opinions on this blog then I have to say that I am now striving to be a little more fair to all sides of a conversation whether I might agree with all of those sides or not. I still reserve the right to bite ass when I get incensed …. that is part of my warm and fuzzy nature … to growl and roar …. but I am trying to see other people’s perspectives a little more these days. I might utterly fail at it but I am trying.
I have to be honest with myself because if I am not honest with myself how can I be trusted to be honest with anybody else?
I know that some of my attitude changes are going to cost me some readers but I don’t know what else to do. It is impossible to please everybody all the time. That much I already know. But it is what it is and I am stuck with it and I hope you will stick with me and understand my present dilemma.
I trusted the Left when I first voted for Obama in 2008 but since then I have seen this administration do some things that I can never agree with (The Trans Pacific Partnership a.k.a, “TPP” being one of them) and so I am feeling a little bit “Let Down” (Betrayed is too harsh a word right now) — and I have never placed much confidence in the non-agendas of what I consider to be the radical right wing in this country — although some of their ideas are becoming more enticing to me as time goes on.
I wonder if there are other Americans who are experiencing the flux-uations in political loyalties that seem to be plaguing me at the moment?
It is gratifying to note that the Google thing indexed my blog 6 days ago.
I guess I should be content with an index entry every 6 days or so because I guess there are some blogs out there that don’t even get that much. It is an amazing thing to have something big and invisible deciding whether or not the things I write about are acceptable to their audiences or the degree to which they are acceptable.
I love any form of censorship, even highly selective value-based censorship. It all plays into my vision of what we are becoming and it piques my memory of what we once were and probably will never be again.
