What I don't like about some political posts is the "I'm better than you because I know the truth" that wafts off them.
The posts we create ourselves are opinions, musings, speculations, personal analysis (via our different lenses [mine being full of shit!]), and oft the stuff of dreams.
I will have no problems with such posts that are of a "Here's what I think..." nature.
I am profoundly turned off by, and will stop reading, posts that take the approach, "Here's where you're wrong ya dumb ass, honkey mother-f..."
So within that/those constraint(s), I will back your attempt to topple the government in power.
See you at that barriers; I'll be the one in the mauve gasmask.
Totally off this particular issue...: Cold-Dodger, the posts you have put up this week have left me awe-struck. Granted, you're competing with the Gladys Lotts of the RfM world, but still!!
Crisp, clear, incisive... I don't think I've sensed you trying to be judgmental, even. Just really good, here's-my-point-and-how-I-got-here, writing.
Half the time I don't know enough to know whether I agree with you or not, but I goddam love reading what you write. I'd say that you remind me of a younger, brasher, more informed me, but that would be more than just an exaggeration. (Okay, maybe just a tiny exaggeration...)
I would read your blog and listen to your podcast every day, but try to keep it to 15 minutes, as senility now allows squirrels to compete for my attention...
