My personal bent is to let everyone say what they want, within minor limits, especially if they blog. Those limits are when they and their cadre of sycophants personally attack me. Which is exactly what happened with these two bloggers. So, I’m in Seventh Heaven when I read a whack job like this: THE CHIV’D AWARD THIS WEEK GOES TO………………………
If they want to post opinions, that’s fine – just be decent and recognize that is what they are writing, an opinion. Most opinions are just plain worthless; nothing more than conjecture, speculation and cheap guessing – fantasies rattling around in an empty head. That doesn’t say that the opinionator is worthless. Unless he correlates him or herself with their opinions. If so, then they are psychotic and need help.
You can find the blog the Tuluwaa babies are talking about here. You’ll have to scroll down a ways until you get to this: Thanks to Jon and HCDCC members but Linda Atkins needs to learn basic civility. Based upon my own personal experience with John Chiv I’d say he needs to learn how to practice what he preaches. The same goes for Jon Yalcinkaya. From what I read I’d say these two individuals are two kinds of the same hypocritical slime.
People that live in glass houses should never throw stones. – Unspoken words taken right out of my mouth:
Guess what Mr. Chiv’d….you are a public figure as well. You have a political blog and put yourself out there as a member of the media. As a public figure, you may be criticized the same as anyone else. For instance, you claim to be accepting but you are terribly small minded and in many ways a complete bigot!
If these three specimens of humanity only knew how much the general population hate their political guts, they’d crawl back under their rocks and never out again. Either way, they are like snakes eating their own tails. They are proven void of all credibility.
Man! Do I love it when I’m right.
It’s been a while since I posted on this blog. I’ve been re-stoking my boilers.
It’s also been a while since I posted any MacLeod Cartoons. When I checked his Facebook page (www.facebook.com/MacLeodCartoons) I found the following quote. What this man says about political cartoons can easily be said about me and my Joe Blow Report. Kudos to James MacLeod.
Joe’s Moto: Everything is about something different.
Why, if it’s not Kym Kemp and Hank Sims. Why doesn’t this surprise me? Is it true what they used to say, “Birds of a feather always flock together”?
I was checking my Reader Blogs and saw a new post by Eric Kirk. When I got to his blog I found this:
On January 24. Kym has the details.
The link, Kym has the details, to my surprise went here, to the Lost Coast Outpost website:
Kym Kemp / Yesterday @ 10:17 p.m. /
Well, I can certainly see that Kym wrote this article, so I went to her web site, Readheaded Blackbelt and look at what I found – A complete knockoff of the Lost Coast Outpost. What really caught my attention is when I thought to leave a comment on Kym’s blog and got down to the bottom of the page and found out that my normal login was not available and happened to see this:
Contact: email@example.com. © 2011 Lost Coast Communications.
So it is with some lament that we say, it’s been a trip, Kym.
Here is what he says about his blog:
If life were meant to be boring, we would all be living in Disneyland and eating paste. But we chose otherwise. Enjoy and participate actively in this temporary escapade we call “life”. Adventures are not meant to be spent lounging at the side of the road. –TLC
The comment that he posted Thursday, June 30, 2011, has been my mantra my whole life:
“Your silence gives consent.”
–Plato (429-347 BC)
When all of you brilliant individuals choose to ignore and exclude Joe Blow’s observations and comments, guess what? You AFFIRM everything he says. A joke on all of you that I’ve known for thousands of years.
The Joe Blow Report came to a towering decision this week, wrote a specific comment to see if the decision was justified – it was, so now we move on. From the beginning of this blog our interests were directed locally. Since our roots are in Southern Humboldt we concentrated on blogs originating there. For example three come to mind, (1)Ernie Branscomb (a punk I went to school with – [my school-time opinion of him] – it hasn’t changed in 50 years), (2) Kym Kemp and (3)Eric Kirk. Kym was conversational and seemed open-minded – turns out she’s not, and the Great Kirk, a Garberville celebrity. Go there, check them out. Each has an interesting and informative website. They also have a rather faithful and diversified list of followers. Each are an absolute authority on all matters relevant to themselves. Think not? Just question them or make a critical comment on something they assert, and they’ll straighten you out in a heartbeat. If they don’t, just be patient some of their adoring fans will. Of course, afterwards if you are lucky, you’ll believe that you just managed to escape a lynching.
Between the three blogs and the select people that regularly made comments on these blogs it was easy to get a pretty good cross-section on the thinking and status quo of the local SoHum community. Each of these three people are unique in their own way. Their writings vary with their ages and experience in life. What they believe and how they approach life is clearly evident. In time I was able to ascertain that all three possessed one equalizing quality: The all believe they are of the elite class of Americans. They’re really only wannabes, but that doesn’t slow them up when it comes to talking down to those that challenge their make-believe status.
Not only are they wannabes, they are not very decent to anyone that’s not a groupie. They all open their blogs to anyone wanting to join in on the conversations they post, but when they don’t want to acknowledge a specifically directed question or comment offered to them, they just look down their respective arrogant elitist noses and ignore you. Doing that in public is simply RUDE. It is also indecent, demeaning and derogatory. What bloggers that do this don’t realize is what they are saying about themselves. It is how they are defined, or define themselves, as wannabe little elite gods. It doesn’t take the other participants long to pickup on what’s going on and join in on the circle-jerk.
All they have to do if they don’t want to talk to someone is simply tell them, “you’re not welcome on this blog.” But then, that would require them to lower themselves to the “sub-human” level, and then they’d be admitting to everyone that, in their heart of hearts, they’re really not “wannabes.” When you accuse someone of being a second class citizen and then treat them like some pariah, you certainly can’t expect that bully to be decent, now can you? So, why would they listen to anything you have say? They won’t and they don’t. The fact is, they try to use what you say against you every time.
When I think of these people I am reminded of the first time I read the Charles Dickens’ novel, The Tale of Two Cities. I think this is what’s happening in America. These wannabe Aristocrats will be worse then the real Power Elites by the time this mess shakes itself all out. By then I don’t think it will matter. They’re already doing a pretty good job. They’ve got their “mock” guillotine working pretty darn good too – you either agree to their unsubstantiated, unproven and unsupported opinions telling you what to believe and think or – off with your head.
