Bloviating Zeppelin: New To "The Usual Suspect" List

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

New To "The Usual Suspect" List

Yes yes, I know, perhaps I should have done this months ago. It's just that so many other things took precedence and, of course, there is no dispute that James holds a massive part in the overall Blogosphere.

It's simply time I put some Left Wing bloggers into my Usual Suspect list.

DailyKos is too simple and too obvious. James would be about Right. So to speak.

I have to write two things about James: first, he has a truly incredible blog here, filled with stunning, technologically-fabulous updates. His site puts most others, quite frankly, to shame -- of course, my own included.

Second -- when left wingers have commented on my various posts he addressed the issues extant and made things involve the topics -- and not the individuals posting. In other words, I listened to what he said because he deserved listening.

James is always welcome on my site, and I have seldom excised comments from various posts except for those who were far Left of Che himself.

James writes from the heart, soul and from an experiential base -- meaning, he's "Been There, Done That."

He and I may agree to disagree on occasion, but his arguments are cogent, logical and mature. How can I possibly object to these parameters?


Welcome aboard, James!

I totally agree. James reminds me of a couple of my liberal relatives who 'have been there' and are not OBNOXIOUS. He is the lib. you would want to go fishing/swimming, playing basketball, golf (whatever) with. He is honest and everything you said was right on.

Chatterbox and I reamed a conservative once who laid into James and personally attacked him. This conservative reminded us of a wacked out 'Fred Phelps' to say the least.. Long enough.. sorry.

Ditto your comments and Rebecca's. James is the ONLY liberal on my blogroll and about the only liberal I haven't banned from my blog :-). He's got a great sense of humor and he isn't hateful and mean.

James certainly deserves my respect for loyalty to his issues, if for no other reason. He can offer a good argument and lays a solid foundation when putting forth his views. He's got a great site, he writes well, offers some contradictory opinions -- with no personal attacks unlike many on both sides of the aisle. what's not to like?

Well, I certainly appreciate the kind words BZ. I'm getting a good reputation in Conservative circles. Heck, my "Bush is the spawn of the devil" line doesn't ruffle feathers anymore.

Truthfully, I've come to respect a lot of you Conservatives. I thought you guys were racist whack-jobs but I've put that mindless crap to rest.

Anyway, it is an honor to be on the list. And I shall try not to disappoint you all as I am adding to the Chronicles of Bush Bashing as we speak. See post tomorrow!!! It'll be a riot.

WEll Blo:
You did well to add James too. I used to think that I was more Centrist, but naw. He really is closer to a Centrist than anyone out there, except the Bush Bashing, I often find myself in agreement with him on social issues. Where we differ is fiscal policy. BTW I have been recently obsessing on The Federalist Society White Papers as well as the Cato Institute White Papers. These papers are pretty much policy analysis and are a good supplement to loop quantum gravity and stationary black holes;) Ha! I think I will just be a bit more professional and focus on analysis from now on.

And lastly, keeping the fingers crossed and praying for you and the family:)

Mahndisa: thanks! That's why there haven't been many posts recently. I've been a bit detailed with other events. I'm posting when I have the time and a breather.
