Tuesday, 10 Wintring 2013
My, how the time flies as the years progress! I can hardly believe that we’ve made it to Wintring already – just like I can hardly believe that it was eleven years ago today that I first spewed forth some bloggy goodness onto the internets. I’m still banging the rocks together, but these days I’m more of a hoopy frood who knows where his towel is at and less of a party animal with a fantastic girlfriend and reasonable gainful employment as a cog in some big corporate machine.
During those eleven years, among other things, I’ve found a whole bunch of interesting characters out in the wilds of liberal blogsylvannia, gotten some good therapeutic rants out about the state of the world that decided to interact with me, survived four years of
unenjoyment entrepreneurial freedom emptying out the meager remnants of my (cough) retirement fund left over from the corpo-weasel raiders of the Bush years unemployment, and almost had a tree fall on my house. I started this blog in a wake of a wonderful Bartfest held in the fall of 2002, and the excitement of finding like-minded individuals who weren’t falling for, nor happy with, the unending hypocritical kimchi coming from the Illegally Installed Drunken Cokeheaded Deserter (During Wartime) and all of his fellow Republicant welfare queens. We went home from Las Vegas, hopeful that the 2002 midterms would signal a slight return to sanity. Our herd of cats, whose ideal outcome would have been somewhere between a liberal version of the current Republicant abomination and a Democratic House and/or Senate, thought that maybe the adults in the room would stop sending pallets of unmarked bills to Iraq, or even focus on reversing their spending spree and their turning of Clinton era surpluses into Republicant red ink, once the midterms had corrected the course of the ship of state slightly. Which indirectly led to the incident which cemented my decision to leave Hazeltucky Hazel Park for more tolerant environs*.
But I digress…
I started out with a site on blogspot, and then migrated to using the web host for my good friend Bartcop in April of 2004. Earlier this year, I signed up with another web host and have been sporadically updating the site since. I have even been introducing some of my previous posts here using the Funny Farm Archival Retrospective Tracking System. Here’s another one that just sort of popped up:
No Wonder That Frelling Irony Alert Siren Keeps Going Off
No, I can’t believe that even a Republicant would be arrogantly idiotic enough to say this:
“It’s extremely difficult to govern when you control all three branches of government”
Er, when would it be any less difficult than when you can do whatever you
want to do think is best for the country? When you can finally do things exactly the way you think will work best?
