(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.

My New Readers and Commenters:

Everyone's time is precious.

When you take time out of your busy day to surf the internet and wind up here for a moment or two, I am honored.

I'd like to take this time to give a shout-out to my newest readers and commenters, in no particular order -- when possible I want to reference your profile and/or the blog you write yourself:

- Mr Chuck: His profile indicates "Born in Dallas, TX, grew up and schooled in Highland Park. Texas A&M Graduate Class 1960 2 tours 1961-1965 Vietnam with MACV-SOG Captain, hamlet pacification and eradication of Viet-Cong chieftains." God bless you, soldier, and thank you for your service to this country. My Dad (who passed away this year) has a brother, Jim, who currently lives in Highland Park.

- LL: His blog is "Virtual Mirage." He also has a blog entitled "US Mexico Border Security." Both, very well done.

- NEO, SOC: Welcome back. Neo's blog is here at "Caucasionally Challenged Christian." He also has "Kids Say The Funniest Things."

- Donald Douglas: A powerhouse at "American Power." Mr Douglas is "a pro-victory Associate Professor of Political Science teaching in Southern California. I love my country, and I fully support current U.S. military operations around the world. I despise the hard-left radical agenda and discourse. I also abhor irrationalism in argumentation. I welcome comments and debate, and I'll defend my positions vigorously. Yet in friendship, you'll find no one more trustworthy nor loyal; in battle you'll find an umatched competitor whose tactical elan would make Machiavelli proud."

- Old NFO: His blog is "Nobody Asked Me." He describes himself as "an old retired Navy Mustang, back working since I kinda like to eat once in a while. Raised in the South, but lived all over the world." Nice P-3 Orion shot, indeed.

- deaconbleu: he's a pain in the ass. But he must find something he likes because he keeps coming back.

- WoFat: His blog, "WoFat Rides Again" indicates he is "Retired New Orleans cop. Criminal area of interest: Asian crime and gangs. Blog about anything that is of interest, or pisses me off." Welcome, my Peace Officer Brother.

- Country Girl: She describes herself as "a Mom of two. I am also a hard worker; nothing is for free. I love to take care of anyone who is in need." Wow. Talk about a True American Woman.

- KurtP: His blog is "A Trainwreck In Maxwell." Texas, that is. Thanks for visiting once again, Kurt. Boston Terrier?

- Tim: A challenger indeed. He makes me think. His home is "Tim's Blogfest." For me, he leans kinda left -- okay, fairly far left -- but he's honest, sincere and measured. And, oh yeah: because I'm in the mountains he's one interested skiier. Check him out.

- Sue: Not a frequent commenter but I'd love to have her back consistently. You can access her portion of the Blogosphere at "POLITICS and RELIGION." She describes herself: "I am a 56 year old Christian woman who is saddened to see her country going down the tubes, but who knows that her God is in complete control of the mess we have become. Praying God will spare this country from the wrath to come. . ."

- cj: Here is one very interesting person. She describes herself as: "a 50 year old, single, female who is a writer by desire and a public safety officer because I need to pay my bills. It makes the people I owe money to happy when I do." Her blogs are "An Angry American," and "My Years of Reading Seriously." God bless you, my Peace Officer Sister.

- FJ: Occupation? Harpooner. Interests? "Hunting down and killing the great white leviathan." A euphemism? Digital domain: "FJ's Blog." FJ has a massive South American interest -- an interest to which we should be paying more attention.

- Greybeard: I'll let him make the summation: "Obstreperous. Conservative. Independent. Ex- Dogcatcher, Ex-Cop. Ex-County Civil Defense Director. Retired ARMY Viet Nam Veteran. Small Business Owner. EMS Helicopter Pilot." Go here to his blog at "Pitchpull." You know: pulling some pitch? As in helos?

- Jo: Sorry, your profile doesn't go anywhere. Thanks for visting and reading, though! UPDATE: Jo's blog is "Southern Sass On Crime." My apologies Jo, and kudos to your decision. Been there myself.

- Lonerider: Describes himself as "Just a geek, who moved down here from Canada about a decade ago, married a Texan and now have two native Texan kids."

- Chris: Great photo of he and his beautiful wife. He describes himself as "a married conservative man with a beautiful daughter who is ready to runble with anyone who tries to take away my freedom."

- David Wyatt: A man whose name is "in the clear" and unafraid. His blog is "Hallelujah Tis Done." My guess is: he plays the banjo!

- Jennifer Leeland: Holy moley, a published writer visits my blog! I have purchased some of her books for my wife and she enjoyed them! Her web page is here. She definitely is "romance with an edge."

- Clint: His blog, "The.Outer.Marker" should be followed! He is an "Airline pilot by day, but dedicated to advancing the ideals that have made the United States of America the greatest country in the world, by night." Great blog, great conservative insight.

- Nickie Goomba: Ah, a man in my own proverbial "back yard." Dude, we're pretty much across the river from each other! Separated by a few thousand feet in altitude. Nice avatar too. Primary blog is the "Goomba News Network." Give me a blast on the e-mail. I'd like to buy you a beer some time!

- Ron Russell: His blog is "TOTUS." I'm guessing it's not quite the same TOTUS. Or am I wrong? What, Ron, does the first "T" stand for?

- Chicago Ray: CR actually lives in -- imagine this! -- Chicago. A web and HTML genius, CR is sufficiently skilled to have his own business. His blog is -- you guessed it! -- ChicagoRay. As you might guess, his blog is a visual wonder. You want to create a website? Go to Chicago Ray!

- Borepatch: Clearly, a weapons devotee with an interest in our Second Amendment. His blog, "Bore Patch," is a wonderful spot to find. As he describes: "Internet Security and Firearms. Either way, helping you keep your muzzle clean. No extra charge." As the former Rangemaster for my 2,000 + department, I can relate to an interest in our Constitutional Freedoms.

In summary:

Somehow, in the merest past few weeks I've managed to acquire an entirely new set of readers. And, as we all know, a blog lives and dies with not only its standard readers -- what I call my "Usual Suspects" -- but also by its fresh blood.

A massive THANK YOU to all my loyal readers, and to my newest readers. Please come back. I value each and every one of you, indeed!

Thanks for the plug and the kind words, BZ. In troubled times, like minded people need to support each other. I'm glad Greybeard showed me the way over here.

Let's hope 2010 is the year that begins our return to what this country was meant to be.

As a loyal reader it's great to hear from other people. I too, have received some visits from some new people. They are some of the same ones. Their blogs are really interesting and it makes this thing fun. I go on some left wing sites and even comment. I am bloodied, but unbowed. Fun, yes?

Thanks for the kind shout out BZ, it's appreciated!

Actually the name stuck from my early days on the net, and I used it so the people in the early newsgroups and chat rooms at AOL (before children found them and computers became cheaper in the late 90's) would know my name and locale without asking..

Yet, I would and still do actually get people who asked where I live if you can believe that shi&!

They all graduated to be Obama voters I imagine. Thanks again sir and Happy New Year to and yours in 2010.

Good list of blogs.

Info: LL has a new book coming out soon, a novel that will be available on Amazon.

Just remember: The more people that buy his book, the more books he will sell. Say what?

To BZ's newer readers: He is one of the most gracious and servant hearted bloggers to his readers that I know, and is consistent at that I might add. Sometimes I don't have time to read BZ as often as I used to, but I always come back to see what his takes are on the news of the day and as always I am intrigued, informed and delighted to hear most if not all of my conservative views relayed here.
Keep up the good work BZ. :0)

Just went over to LL's blog. WOW.. Looks like he has written a few books and has one that is going to sell on Amazon soon. The info. is on his blog "My Journey". He sounds like an awesome guy and his new book coming out sounds like a GREAT read.

Oh I'm so glad your wife enjoyed the books!
I love this blog. I don't always comment, but I love the perspective. You often nail the core of an issue infinitely better than I would...and I WRITE for a living. LOL.
Proud to be a "Usual Suspect" on this blog, BZ.

Thanks one and all. We are about to be smashed upside the head with 2010.

Hope we're all ready!

BZ, I'm genuinely stunned. You're such an accomplished blogger, & I'm truly honored to be mentioned, I guess that equals "honorable mention...?" Anyway, thank you for your constant kindnesses toward us. I always look to your blog ASAP when big news hits. By the way, i'm mighty rusty at the "banjer" but hope to havde time to "un-rust" soon. I really enjoy bluegrass. God Bless you & yours in 2010.
