    If you didn't already know it...

    Today is the greatest day of your life.

    This site lowered my blood pressure considerably. If you have the time, I recommend fooling around in there for a while. It's one of those things that you can chew on later, instead of all the craziness going on in the real world. I haven't even decided yet whether it ends happily or not. But it seemed to end peacefully. So there ya go.

    That is some crazy stuff. Going to have to give it more than the cursory 2 minutes that I did.

    Happened on your site by accident. Very nice; I enjoy clear thinking that's more or less absent party line bullshit and the standard vitriolic ranting we tend to see in blogs that center on politics. I'll dedinitely stop back.

    Just curious -- Does the person whose information is on the right sidebar ever post?

    -- n.e.

    Thanks for commenting :)

    Yeah, Kim still posts occassionally. She has a lot more committments than I do, so I can't fault her too much for not equalling me in frequency. Sometimes I worry that people will think she's just a figment of my imagination but she really does exist! I will make sure she knows that you asked though.

    I appreciate you saying that I don't spew party talking points too much, but I am fairly partisan. Kim tends to be less so and probably I have moved this blog to the right in her absence.

    I try to think for myself and encourage other people to do so as well, but I am certain I will sound like a party shill on some topic if you listen long enough. Diversity of opinions is what makes this country great but everyone has something they are sure they're right about while anyone who disagrees is wrong :D The important thing is divorcing the judgement of ideas from the judgement of people. Sometimes that is impossible (at least it is for me, no matter how sure I am of the concept's value), but if we are going to all live together it is an important goal towards which to strive.

    Take care,

    Very cool M@.

    BTW, the EUnuck we were playing with is from China! Can you imagine -- lecturing us on Kyoto, Democracy and the world court. China subscribes to none! And would harm him if he suggested they did!!

    Take care,

    Ha! I had to go back and comment again on that post of yours. Why do these people never stop decrying the "arrogance" of the US in the most arrogant of language?

    Wow, you are also extremely prolific! I came back today to see if you'd responded; I'll have to check more often to not fall behind.

    "The important thing is divorcing the judgement of ideas from the judgement of people"You know, if I could find a way get more people to abide by this concept, my life would be much more happy. I live in the Bay Area (wasn't sure where you were stationed) and it's not the norm for people to do so -- opinions, out here, count against you. Politics are hard to discuss, even with longtime friends, unless you are going to be a parrot. I revealed I wasn't a democrat and they haven't called me back since, these "lunch friends" of mine. May be a coincidence. We'll see. I think they were weirded out when I proclaimed myself a "mostly libertarian." They didn't know how to respond -- I think knee-jerk hatred would have been the case if I'd claimed republican allegiance.

    I really can only have decent political conversations with the wife and my friends from back east -- most of whom originate from the mid-west, though I'm not sure that their geographic origin has anything to do with their acceptance of people despite belief . . .

    in any case, thanks much

    heh. *that other person* ~ i am a figment of your imagination. admit it, m@. this is like the fight club of the blogging world. i am m@'s bleeding heart liberal, i am m@'s complete lack of surprise, his raging bile duct.

    At 11:54 PM, Blogger M@ said...

    Heh, sometimes I am more prolific and sometimes very much less. I really appreciate your compliments, and I am flattered that you are interested in my opinion. I really do have no credentials.

    I have never served in the armed services, and if I gave that impression somehow I apologize.

    Beyond that, I agree with you that it's hard to discuss ideas outside of a group already in agreement. I am nothing like a saint when it comes to judging my ability to tolerate what I think is foolishness, but I realize that it's the only way to propagate good ideas through our culture. I have been trying to resist getting all riled up from the election, and I hope afterwards we can have a little more sanity. Until then, I guess I'm committed to the partisan sprint to the finish :S
