Yeah, I know, it’s been a looong, looong time, and I really can’t come up with any excuses for it.
Just a bit worn out, I suppose?
I keep telling myself: “OK, now THIS I must write about”, and then, before I’ve even had a chance to finish a thought in my head, much less put it down, sixteen other outrages happen. So which ones to cover, which ones not to cover? Most of them you’ve probably already read about on at least ten different sites who still regularly update and, at the end of the day, what can I possibly say about scandal X and exactly why it happened, not to mention what will happen next which, if the perpetrator is a Prozi, is a resounding nothing. Just like the previous 25,000 times.
And if it’s the Establishment once again stabbing their own voters in the back, turning the knife while laughing gleefully, what more can I say that I haven’t already said several hundred times? Should I say it again regardless? If so, which ones should I focus on and which ones shouldn’t I?
So I throw my hands in the air, mutter “let it burn” and promise myself that tomorrow, TOMORROW will be that glorious day when the Muse will come back and it all will come together.
Meanwhile, the site languishes for which I’m deeply sorry. This site and you, dear readers, mean the world to me. We’ve been through a lot together, and just pulling the plug just isn’t something I can do. On the other hand, if I don’t pull the plug, then I owe it to your weary eyeballs to at least occasionally put something new up here to read.
I suppose I could start posting funny cat photos 😉
Kidding! But seriously, sometimes I wonder if I shouldn’t just let politics take a hike and start writing about whatever. It’s not like anything is about to change. At this point, the Junta in DC and their RINO allies could lock up the doors to a nunnery, set it on fire and make s’mores, and all that would happen would be the usual few days/weeks of “something needs to be done” followed by “oh look, another scandal about which something needs to be done!”
So what do YOU think? Should we change focus, tone, stay the same, activate the self-destruct button or something else entirely.
After all, without you all, this site would have never been A Thing™, and I have always valued your input, even when I can’t seem to get through the spam trap that is my inbox on a regular basis.
I am in the same boat as far as being overwhelmed with the constant stream of Orwellian bullshit coming from the oligarchy. I don’t know what to focus on because there is so much to be outraged over. Watching your Republic die and it’s corpse being raped will do that to ya. But two points jump out at me. One;… Read more »
The militant homosexual lobby is going apoplectic over my home state because…wait for it…they didn’t want people forced to violate their religious convictions by being forced to provide goods or services under the force of the government. And now people everywhere are refusing to do business in Indiana because the state government is…wait for it…bigoted. This is “Hands Up, Don’t… Read more »
We’re seeing the beginning of the end for the United States. Unless we get a Reagan in 2016, or worse, Cankles or Fauxahontas should sleaze their way in, The United States will end by 2020. On then lighter side of the news, The beating Harry Reid took New years has finally convinced him it’s time to hang it up. The… Read more »
I can understand that your majesty. Life gets in the way and with the scandal an hour regime in Washington and their milquetoast RINO enablers it is hard to keep on expressing the kind of outrage necessary in a new and novel way. That being said too many are giving up the fight. Perhaps some of us need to rush… Read more »
Dear Misha Write about the mundane and the good in TX and the areas near where you are located. Need ammo to convince wife that we need to have a retirement spot somewhere warm(er) than MI and closer to AZ but not in AZ…. and, yes, we need to keep this community in touch. We are not yet at Farnhams… Read more »
FrJim – am overseas at the moment, only channel in English is CNN. One would think that the KKK has re-arisen in Indiana with all the faux lather and protesting going on I happen to work in IN when not traveling, great state outside of a couple of major population centers and universities. I do think we need to print… Read more »
I am aware that the Emperor lives in the Great State of Texas. I am in the State of Ice, Snow, Granite and actual weather, aka New Hampshire. I was involved in a discussion online with a retired lawyer regarding militias, the second amendment and stuff. He was responding to someone regarding rebelling against the government. He said: What government… Read more »
angrywebmaster @ #: What government says its citizens have the legal right to overthrow the government? If government said “you have those guns to kill us off at need,” how is that not a defense to a criminal charge of treason, fomenting rebellion or whatever? This shows that your interlocutor has a fundamental misapprehension of from where our rights derive.… Read more »
I don’t understand. I posted here last night (or early this morning), it was the second post. Now it’s nowhere to be found. Did I do something wrong/ (JP, I checked the spam box and the awaiting moderation cue, nothing from you at all. The last comment I see form you was on Friday at 2345 or so in the… Read more »
Yeah, ain’t going nowhere, just need my motivation kicked back into gear. In the meantime, there’s always cat photos 😉
Emperor Misha I @ #:
Well, here’s a cat picture to help motivate you.
Your Immensity; I can certainly sympathize with the idea of “let it burn.” We’re watching what our forefathers spent their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” to purchase for us get whittled away by Prozi scum, who aren’t fit to lick the shoes of those who built it. There are times when “let it burn” is not only easier, but quicker;… Read more »
So, what we had heah….was a failya…to communicate. Combination of overload, burn out, and time needed to process. Not the first time, Sire, and probably not the last. Do what you need to stay functional, because your voice on the intarwebz is a note of fresh air. When you post, you post, and the home site remains. Happens to me… Read more »
And what is this thing about giving up?
I’m guilty of not helping to carry the load, but my problem is a combination of burnout/frustration/incompetence. I see a topic, and think “Ok…I can do this one”…..and then realize how my country girl/redneck writing looks next to the Pros. Doesn’t take long for me to just say “Screw it”. Oh well. Sooner or later someone is going to screw… Read more »

” I do have a life.” I think that’s a large part of what happens when bloggers slow down. Life asserts itself no matter who’s sitting in the Offal Office; bills need to be paid, chilluns need to be slavishly hauled to and from expensive extracurricular activities, and next year’s woodpile needs to be built up so the family can… Read more »
Ped Jism/Sed Jimp/Ed’s Jimp (Sorry, I like to play with anagrams when given a bunch of letters 🙂 ) mistakenly concluded: Which is why you are a “Conservative”. You don’t like change, even though there is nothing you can do to stop or slow it down. Change will happen in spite of you. I may be a conservative, but assuming… Read more »
Emperor Misha I says:
Dammit! You just threw out all my excuses. Well…guess I better get to lookin for something to write about.
