Listen to your friends

Older readers know that my closest friend on the web is Warren . Warren doesn't post much anymore and we miss him here. I have been devoting too much time at a good friends blog rather then this one. The friend is a good man whom Warren and I are fond of. However he has delegated way too much authority to an anti American clique.

I was offered the spot of moderating the Jewish forum at a much larger blog. However my place is here amongst friends and our official troll. I belong with the people I have grown fond of like Mr Beamish, Jason , Always on the Watch , Esther, Farmer John and Rob Bayn.

I would like our older posters to wish mercurial Justin Morris a speedy recovery from health concerns. I would also like our older posters to let Warren know that his style and wit are always welcome.

On a personal note my search for the phantom Essex Moose has become a local joke. I know Mr Moose is out there as I have seen the tracks and other odious evidence. I have been fooled by a couple of fake Moose calls but I will find the elusive Essex Moose.

The Internet is a von Neumann probe hellbent on enslaving mankind.

Don't tell anyone else.

Whew! For a minute there, I thought you were leaving us.

Beak, just had a run-in(s) with someone invincibley ignorant and too smart by half. I have had a couple with the same person. Its hard to argue with someone that refuses to even consider that, they might just, by some remote chance, be wrong.

Justin, if you read this, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

The moral is listen to your friends
as they are wiser then you. I was not even tempted by the offer of a much larger forum. The man who made it is a friend but he has some soul searching and housecleaning.

He also wants to link this site to his own but I like the small community of friends and family.
I would also have to shift focus on something this blog has never been. I run a Pro American blog with next to zero focus on Judaism or Israel unless provoked by trolls
like 167 or Ducky.

My passion and my greatest love has always been for the country I love. There are plenty of good blogs that focus more on Israel like our friend Esther, Pam of Atlas Shrugged or the Madzionist blogoff. My focus has been on the enemies of the country I love and totalitarians of all types.

I also like the flexibility to serialize a book or do a rare personal post.

This blog will stay in current form and format.

If you ever do find the Essex moose, perhaps you can then start to help me look for the "green flash". Supposedly it appears in the moment immediately following a sunset over open water. If you ever spot one, let me know.
