This site originally started out as blog that shared my ‘not so humble opinion’ about most every topic that one could write about without fear of death. It left no doubt that sarcasm was only one of the quality’s that I possess and that I had no problem saying things that ticked people off.
It then evolved into more of a ‘news papery’ type publication as I had needed to straighten my act up slightly and be a little more respectable. Gone were the scathing observations about certain groups of people; Liberals for the most part, and yes… there are a lot of individual groups that fit under that ‘L’ umbrella. Gone too were the Rule 5 posts of scantily clad lasses that made the heart beat just a bit faster as a ‘decent’ person just doesn’t do that sort of thing… and yes, I did hear that phrase tossed my general direction more than once by more than one ‘Christian’ individual.
I took a break for a few months due to some rather personal issues occurring… and no Virginia, it wasn’t due to all the labels being slapped on me. I’ve been called everything from ‘A-hole’ to Taliban (a Christian one at that) and just about every noun, pronoun and adjective has been applied to me and my blogging. I just shrug that stuff off…actually I get tickled at the mentality of most who rant and rage at what I write… but that’s another post for another day.
It was only a short few months ago that the urge to write hit … well honestly it had been bugging me for a lot longer than that. However, when Life gets in the way, sometimes you just got to roll with it… baby.
Still, at the back of my mind was this drive to get the creative juices flowing. And toward the last of May, I did.
The idea of cranking the R-R back up was twofold. One, there was; and still is, a need for some actual reporting… without the Liberal-cratic twist given to it by the local news rag. They tend to make things look good for some while others; if you aren’t in their ‘good graces’, wind up looking like blithering baboons…
And two, I felt the need to semi-sort of keep respectable… although why I really couldn’t’ tell you.
Well… while the old blog was down due to idiotic actions taken by a babbling bone-head at Bluehost, (my WordPress hosting company) I thought about what I really wanted to do with the blog… what direction I wanted to take it in…
And a newsy type/imitation paper wasn’t it.
First rule of blogging is to be satisfied with what you’re doing. Second rule is don’t worry about what others think about it… if you’re happy, that’s all that matters.
It’s not that I can’t be respectable… it’s just that I’m not your typical khaki wearing, dress shoes, suit and tie kind of guy. If you are then hey… more power to you.
And I mind my manners. I respect my elders. Loved my Mama and still love my Pops. Go to church as often as I can and believe in the Good Lord.
But a saint I am not.
I will let a few words slip out on occasion. I’ll get pretty po’d at stupid things and sarcastic at even stupider ones… that’s when most Liberals are involved.
And that’s why this blog has and still will be undergoing some changes. Just how much still remains to be seen.
Which ought to make things interesting.
