We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It was interesting to see the various major linkers to that (surprisingly) controversial piece on Multiculturalism and Arabs we posted the other day because I had only been vaguely aware of one of the sites, and unaware of the others.
The most productive of blog visitors was reddit. That link- collector gets huge traffic, judging by the number of visit they sent over here: over 15 thousand. No comparison with what FARK can send, but powerful still.
We had thousands of visitors via linkswarm, another link-aggregator which seems to have a vast and loyal readership.
We also had thousands from a site which our pure and chaste selves had never seen - Ernie's House of Whoopass. Ernie provides general links plus hard-core p*rn links which make visiting Theo feel like going to church. This photo is the most modest image I could find at Ernie's place.
Yeah that thread got kinda wordy..I checked and double checked and sa where only to of my personalities made comments..I was kinda shocked.
I guess that must have been the day UPS delivered my new sock puppet and I was cleaning my M-14 ans AK-47.
Special note to prospective gun owners . I am a collector but if you're going to get just one or two (one for the wife, they love shooting) then get the same caliber. And make that caliber a popular one like 5.56..lots of ammo around although prices are rising ...don't wait for "Crunch time", by then it's too late and you'll be easy prey. Oh yes and buy at leat ten clips for each weapon ..you don't get to call "time out" to reload.
