Note ClarkDV entry to your, "A non-political question,......,posted by you on Mon. Oct. 17th.
This is a perfect example of the looney left's cowardly, imbecilic bovine scatology. A classic example of not being able to handle the message, so let's shoot the messenger.
Note he said you and I are stupid for using our own name, implying we wouldn't if we didn't have too. In his cowardly machinations he states on my blog he should not have to identify himself to those "crazies" out there who might do him and his family harm. I think you and I are reasonably well known to many people and are easy to find. I have lived in the same house nearly 44 yrs. I have no fear of any "crazies" that I or my family can't handle and I am sure you feel the same.
He said on your blog mentioned above, "I come here to make sure that the conversations aren't dominated by conservatives". Can you imagine the hubris dripping from such a statement. He has clearly anointed himself King of these blogs and implies only he is capable of saying anything that is factual and interesting to most people.
I will stop pointing out the foibles of the looney left. You may have noted I wrote recently after a couple of months of no posts, even in this environment of riches for those interested in politics. I did so because the looney left likes to shoot the messenger, display their self-ordained brilliance, and espouse, from the bushes, their own agenda with no regard for the subject of the blog. They are simply incapable of sanely and civilly debating the issues. This is why I write and after all these years, never get.
Steve, I will not post again in the near future. I ask that you consider doing the same regarding politics. You have many other areas of interest that you write about and I think that is fine and beneficial to many people. I follow you on most of your posts and have not found a single case, in the comments, where anyone was less than civil and can't find a comment asserting you are stupid.
My position is neither you nor I have any obligation to provide a forum for these people. I find it very interesting not a single liberal/progressive has approached the Times Gazette to write a blog.
