A comment for a comment............

yesterday i wrote in my blog concerning harriet miers being put up for supreme court justice. i got this comment..........

Shoes,
It's very sad to dismiss someone just because they say they are born again. Do you think there is any connection between the drop off in comments to your blog and your obviously biased slant on anything to do with the current administration?

let me address this today. no it isnt sad to dismiss someone just because they are born again. you'll forgive me if i seem to work off of my past expirences. born again christians give other christians (ie: jim bakker, pat robertson...etc) a bad name. i find most of them to be zealots that will not only NOT see your points but most dont even recognize your right to have a point that doesnt agree with them. they are a group that never has anything to say good but points out that if you dont agree with them then your on a bullet train to hell so the answer is NO, i dont think its bad to dismiss them. i want free thinkers on the supremem court not someone who believes in a mythical figure. the bible does NOT trump the bill of rights.
second i couldnt care less about the drop off in comments on my blog. those fluctuate depending on content anyway. i dont write here to get comments (though i do enjoy reading them) i write to get my point out there. like it or not....hell, like me or not i'm telling you my thoughts. read it ...dont read it , its up to you. i dont write to please others, i write to please myself.
lastly, i am biased against this administration. hell, i'm biased against all politcians. i think they are all crooks. i think there should be term limits. i think the people should vote on raises for our elected officials. i dont think their benefits should be fully paid until they die. i dont think big oil should be calling the shots in government. i think the cost of campaigning should be greatly reduced. thats just a few things. i also think that organized religions should be abolished. that barry bonds records shouldnt count (not because of steroids but because hes a prick). i think the fcc is a bunch of jackoffs. i think the bible should be considered fiction....the same as a harry potter book (harry potter is a better read....and yes i've read both).

so if you dont agree with me thats cool. dont come back...or come back and lets discuss it. see nobody wants to discuss anything anymore. its just say someone is a jerk and turn away. you may not change my mind but i will always listen to intelligent debate. i lamented the fact that grampapinhead is quitting his blog....and he and i almost never see eye to eye but he was passionate and made good points. thats all i ask.

thursday.....rollin towards the weekend.

Shoes,
I feel like I finally made the big time. I love your blog and I love you and your wife and kids. I don't always agree with you, but I do respect your opinions. Lets discuss in depth at B&P's 25th anniversary party in November.

I am still a firm believer in the one term President. Say 6 years? The 2nd term always seems like the kiss of death for so many Presidents, even the successful ones. Also, they can concentrate at the job at hand instead of getting reelected. I would put limits on Senators and Reps as well.
