Poking head out of foxhole, seeing if the artillery barrage has ceased

Well, if this hasn't been the most interesting weekend. Mostly starting last night (late Saturday) with me being informed my Mother had spent Friday night in the hospital. Nice to know but why 24 HOURS LATER?!?!?!

And then my post yesterday. I appreciate the civilized way we can all debate a very controversial subject. If you'll cease fire and let me brush myself off, I'll go ahead and jump back into the foxhole so you may continue the barrage.

Who am I kidding? Debate is AWESOME. I'm not in a foxhole, I'm charging the fucking machine gun nest, weapon in hand, screaming my war cry (think "Full Metal Jacket" warcry). I even sent out a message to someone on IM about how much fun it was. He's probably wondering what the hell is wrong with me, but... that was entertaining (working with almost strictly females in a small office setting gets many debates going too, but I'm usually drowned out. They're bigger than me).

It keeps my mind fresh, and it's great to hear (see) other people expressing their own opinions. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't agree with everyone. Finding the middle ground or agreeing to disagree is some of what makes life interesting. Try not to hold a grudge against me, because I don't hold one against you.

Oh well. Tried to stay off other people's blogs as the day went on, mainly because I wasn't sure if any of you want to hear from me any more. If you don't like what I said, that's cool, but I'm still the same goofball. I write (or try to), and something any writer, especially bloggers, should value is the right for free speech. Bloggers have already shaken the tree here in the States.

For instance, the local paper had an article Sunday how bloggers have shaped political discourse. (The following is directly quoted, would credit if I could)...

-Bloggers applied the pressure that led to Trent Lott's 2002 resignation from the U.S. Senate after making what some construed as racist remarks.

-It was a blogger dubbed "Buckhead" who in 2004 exposed forged documents used by CBS News and Dan Rather in stories about President Bush's National Guard service.

-Former Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., was unseated two years ago after conservative bloggers attacked him and forced the state's largest newspaper to modify its coverage of the race.

-Blogs raised early questions about the Bush administration's handling of the Hurricane Katrina crisis. A study by Loyola University Chicago sociologist Lauren Langman concludes that the blogs forced critical mainstream news coverage that weakened support for the president.

-Last year's U.S. Supreme Court nomination of Harriet Miers was withdrawn after conservative blogs derided her qualifications. Bush took the unprecedented step of holding a conference call with the bloggers in an unsuccessful attempt to quell criticism.

There are some things that may cause me to move the blog, but not any of you personally. I may have reached the point where the restrictions here have just about frustrated me enough to stop, and/or move elsewhere.

I tried linking to something here within the site itself that would have helped me explain my position yesterday. Couldn't do it. Got turned down. Three times. It's within the site itself, for cripes sake.

Also, I'm greedy. I like to write, and want to get paid to write. Not pay for me to be censored.

Haven't made a decision yet what to do. I'd hate to lose touch with many of you (still reading a story somewhere, and enjoy so many people's writings), so I doubt I'd out and out leave. But I need the ability to be uncensored, and give credit where credit is due. I don't plagiarize, so I'm forced to find creative ways to give that credit.

Getting tired of editing myself. I don't cuss all that much, I'm not overtly sexual (that you know of), but I enjoy the company here. And, I have met some very beautiful women who with whom I have had many entetaining conversations with (not all about sex, ya pervs). So how to find the balance...

When/if I make to my 100th post, the first thing of my "100 things you didn't know about me" will be why I end my posts with this color.

Loyal, if you leave I will hunt you down....you are one of the good ones.

You'll find the voice that does not require linking to other sites. That's the primary restriction that bothers you, and it is one you can live with once you learn to not navigate waters that require it.

More importantly, you keep me sharp and you're as prolific as I am. I need more good male writers to read, dammit, and you'll deprive me of much needed comment.

So fuck off this fucking idea that you'll leave. Bugger.

--Seriously

(p.s. -- hope your mom is okay.)

Tell ya what, Seriously my man (um, not MY man... dammit, I gotta pick and choose my words better), considering the reactions I have seen from some folks around here on other blogs, I'm rather surprised that this supposedly adult community that "open mindedness" is only applicable to what they themselves think is right.

Ah well, read my next post. You'll understand.

And yeah, my Mom's fine. Was gastric issues.

Morning Loyal, went back and read the responses in full to your post yesterday. All in all, the debate was whole and healthy. My feeling is.... that as long as we realize that for every opinion we form, that there is probably an opposing opinion and that our soapbox is not constructed from the conviction and stregth of those opinions, there can continue to be healthy debate. The willingness to at least look at other sides of a topic and to adapt our thinking based on new and different information feeds me.... and then what Seriously said.


rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 2:03 am:
At least the responses themselves were civilized (no cursing, I was surprised), though I disagree with what some people think and agree with others. But that's fine. I expressed my opinion (or most of it), they expressed theirs, and that constitutes a healthy debate.

Thanks for the support, oh Monty Python guy on piano...

Loyal, you wrote on a very sensitive subject with the intent of opening it up to debate. There was nothing wrong with that post. I did not personally comment, but I did review the comments recently.
You raised several good points and I didn't find it offensive at all. You are a good writer and a thoughtful person- don't get all caught up in it anymore. Just keep on bloggin' away because we like you, we really like you!!!


rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:11 am:
Ah, the eye. I always find myself looking at the eye (and not in a LOTR Mount Doom way).

I hae another issue I'll be bringing up. I'm still new at blogging and this site, so I may be on a path to self destruction.

Ah well, hopefully y'all will still like me.

(Wow, look at all the l's in that sentence!)

well what you do in your life is up to you if you find this bloging not intesting enough to put the effort i see you put in it then stop but if you enjoy it as much as everybody here including my self then keep up the good work.and from what i can see you have not been censored stop holding back or editing your self how will you know if you dont at least try? and balance is what you make it not what is


rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:23 am:
Oh, I find blogging extremely interesting. And bloggers. And I enjoy finally writing and having the public read it.

We'll see. I'm trying to decide what to do....

I've always been curious about why you end your posts with that color... hurry up and hit 100 so I can know.

rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:30 am:
Artistic! Am I happy to see you. And your pretty smile.

How about if I just post 5 times a day and get up to 100 by this weekend?

I don't think anyone will stop watching your blog or appreciating your comments on theirs because of your stance on this subject! We are all (well most of us anyway..lol) sensible adults who can agree to disagree or at least debate an issue! I appreciate you making me think!

rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:35 am:
I made you think? Uh oh, bad things always happen when I make a woman think.

Guess that's another reason why I'm still single.

Hey LC, is that shit brown at the end???lol I myself am disgusted with what I perceive as kiddie porn among some other very odd combinations.

It is fucking hot here isn't it. I hate the summer, welcome to Hell!

I would miss not being able to read your writing. You are witty and play on words very well. You can post on my blog anytime, even if you call me a 2 faced bitch (Mr. Happy, now banned licksuckfucku2) I can handle it!

Anyway, keep on keeping on!

rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:36 am:
Gonna go into calling people names in my next post, but I don't know you well enough to call you that. Yet.

If I came over and said that, would you shoot me or slap me?

Nothing like a good debate. I love them to get my blood going and my mind in gear.

You've got to be kidding me! Um....

Aw hell, was trying to find a way to make a debate out of your comment and couldn't find one.

Paper or plastic? You choose one side, I'll take the other...

rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:47 am:
I find myself devoting more time to writing here than I do with what I should be, because I receive the almost instant gratification of responses. Silly thing to think, but it gives me that ego boost.

Funny thing... whap... someone told me the other day they had heard someone call boobs "whappers"... and I look at your pic...

there are possibilities to give credit .... and lots of things within the site can be linked already. Let me know what you wanted to link (we can always ask, right?)

and, I'm with the rest: plz don't go....


rm_LoyalCumpany replies on 5/16/2006 3:51 am:
Goddess, your blog is one of the biggest reasons I stay here. Been a faithful reader since I discovered the blogs in the first place, and factored heavily in starting my own.

Hmmm.. combine our 2 blogs and we could take over the Earth. Venus? Both? A lemonade stand?

hmmmmm .... given the choice between lemonade and champagne, I definitely think the latter wud work better, for both humanz and Venutianz....

.... sounds.... interesting.... besides, champagne works better for.... other things too ~grinz~

Good choice. Wouldn't want to rule anything, would take too much time away from simple plesures.

Seriously, after getting out a long term relationship, I feel like I'm taking "how not to get laid 101", thanks for the blog.

found a quote for you by the way...

I think it is appropriate.

Common experience shows how much rarer is moral courage then physical bravery. A thousand men will march to the mouth of the cannon where one man will dare espouse an unpopular cause.

There you go my dear... in a nutshell
