A Disclaimer...

....this is wee disclaimer for this site... along with a sort of Mission Statement, I suppose... as you people know, I don't do politics... I don't do religion.... I like stories about people being stupid... I like cleavage... I like jokes... I think GW's ears are funny... and, I think that Kerry's glorious fizzog would make any baby cry... I'm just a normal person... still, in general, I am one hell of a tolerant individual... I have my beliefs, and you have yours... hopefully, never the twain shall meet... otherwise, we're all doomed.... so, I have prepared the following list of things that must be understood before reading or commenting on this blog...

... oh, go ahead... there's more in the extended entry...

...I believe in personal responsibility.... If I did it, I'll clean it up.... If I said it, I'll stand by it... what I do is MY fault... not because I was abused, marginalized, or disenfranchised as a child, but because I am who I am... my Mother loved me, but she punished me... my Father loved me, but he punished me too.. did I hate them for it?... of course not, they were only being parents... good God, people... they punished me BECAUSE they loved me.... show your child a little discipline, and it'll go a long way...

... I really don't give a shit about your views on politics... and, I don't care who you are... what?.. you look a bit taken-aback... Hell, like reading your newspaper column, comments, or book is going to make me suddenly change my mind about MY political beliefs?... what the Hell are you, some sort of egomaniac?... you think you can change ME?... don't shove your views down my throat, because I sure as HELL don't do it to you... and, I require the very same from YOU... this is my blog, baby...

... I believe in the right to Personal Defense... be it firearms, blades, or an overly developed ability at beating the piss out of someone.... The cops are not here to defend us, people... they are here to clean up our bloody mess after we're killed... defend yourselves, people... no one else will..

... I believe in the right of freedom of expression with mutual respect... you can voice your opinion all you want... as long as you maintain a conversational posture... the minute you begin getting upset or uncivilized?... well, it is time to leave this website, or get yourself banned... my site is for commenting on the mean size of breasts in Georgia this year, and not your whining bullshit....

... I believe in the War on Terror... I believe that this is a World War.. I believe we are right, strategically AND morally to be stamping out these evil Islamic radicals who want to murder us... I don't care if you are Christian, Muslim, or Atheist.. being intolerant, disrespectful, demeaning, or otherwise uncivil to ANYONE of another faith is just fucking wrong.. worship your God, and leave everyone else alone... you have no right to lecture me, and if you try to convert me, you'll likely end up bleeding...

... I believe that women are the finest and most terrifying of all things ever created...

... I believe that I can get along with anyone... of any race, religion, creed, sexual preference, political leaning, or College Football allegiance... just as long as they are respectful, courteous, and smile a lot...

... and, lastly... I believe that blogs are supposed to be fun... when you come here, I'm not trying to change your mind about anything... I have no soapbox, children... I have no great cause... I'm just here... and, I will remain here until I see fit to be somewhere else... I write because I like language... I tell stories to you tards because I have no children to spout them to.. I post about cute brunette librarians because I dream about them every night... any questions?.. this is it... this is me... this is my blog...

... anything taken remotely seriously that has Ever Been, or Ever Shall Be written on this blog... is missing the whole point of this exercise entirely.... and, they probably need a good psychiatrist... because.. and, here is the real kicker.... if you aren't here to have fun and laugh, children... why the fuck are you here at all?...

Bullshit So Far

holey monkey, I am not even sure how I came across your site but I clearly should buy you a beer- the SWG Manifesto is glorious! Cheers man- stick to your guns, call it like you see it, and may your Georgia Mean increase!

Right on Eric. Yet another pontificator must have checked in via the great equalizer that is the intardnet and email and the anonymity that it provides. I love those types. Everybody is always a swinging dick behind the keyboard.....

Well I'm glad you got that Straight! Thought I was in the wrong place for a "second".

Bullshitted by Sam on August 24, 2004 11:15 PM

Man, you wrote hell out of this one. Excellent!!

Bullshitted by Jim on August 24, 2004 11:24 PM

Can I say "Right on"? :) Very cool...post.

I have to admit though, I feel kind of wierd saying "right on"...it's one of those Oregonian sayings that is kind of growing on me...yet, being from the midwest all of my life it doesn't feel natural coming out of my mouth, or typed by my fingers. :)

Obviously, or I wouldn't have to sit here and explain what it means...right :)

Anway, love the disclaimer :)

Dearest Straight White Dude,

Ok I'm convinced. However, I don't have a college football allegiance....But I do have a strong allegiance to beating the piss outta people.

All My Best,
Cute Brunette Librarian or Mia...Pick One

You tell em!!

Bullshitted by Junebugg on August 25, 2004 06:45 AM

Nice Post(I guess you just have to explain the joke to people sometimes). I do have kids, and many of the stories I tell 'em come from here. And I do have a college football allegiance. Go Bucks.

Keep up the good work.

You totally hit the nail on the head...keep it up, this site is great!

What'd I miss? Geoff unleashed similar wrath... who's trollin?

Bullshitted by Key on August 25, 2004 12:27 PM

The only reason I read any blogs is to laugh my ass off.

[pours Eric 2 finger of something 25 years old from Scotland]

I'll drink to that.

By the way, what DID bring this on?

I hope you didn't throw a troll-whackin' party & not invite me? :-)

Bullshitted by Harvey on August 25, 2004 02:15 PM

...no trolls... just some general feelings about my blog.. relax, people.. we be cool...

Bullshitted by Eric on August 25, 2004 02:25 PM

wonderful! i love it. love it love it.

Bullshitted by k on August 25, 2004 04:45 PM

ahhh... shut yer pie-hole!

Bullshitted by Mudfish Billie on August 25, 2004 05:10 PM

LOL - I am always amazed that people do not understand the point of blogs. You can say or not say whatever you want. Don't matter what someone else thinks. They don't like it, they can get their own blog!

Sometimes a blogger will make me crazy, even though I like them - but that's okay, I'm out of my mind most of the time anyway. But, I would never tell someone they couldn't say what they want to say on their own blog.

Anyhow - where was I? Oh yeah, very nice rant Eric! *grin*

Bullshitted by Teresa on August 25, 2004 05:52 PM

Sounds good. There's enough political blogs, and I don't come here for that. I come looking for squirrel sex stories. Hey, there's a link now...

Bullshitted by Evilwhiteguy on August 25, 2004 09:41 PM

Squirrel Sex Stories!

Now *that* would be a good title for a blog *grin*!
And this is a very nice island to come to away from the hubbub going on out in the rest of the world.

Keep up the good work and go Salukis! (to the nearest liquor store most likely)

Bullshitted by Guy S. on August 26, 2004 04:17 PM

Hmmm... from the uncharacteristic lack of focus in the writing, I'm guessing Teresa's had a little too much to drink.

I'm going to go take advantage of her...

Hey, Beautiful! What's a nice girl like you doing in a sleazy dive blog like this?

Bullshitted by Harvey on August 26, 2004 04:22 PM

Harvey I thought you were only minimally functional right now...

As for why I'm here, Eric has way more fun than I do - what better reason is there to hang out here... *grin*
