I’m not one for the tweeter thing.  Or the Skype, Yahoo Chat Rooms, forums – lets just say, I’m not one for the social morass of quick communications.

So I have a self induced problem.

I write my blog, for the most part from the past. Whether the events I write were ten or twenty years ago or yesterday. Usually it’s yesterday.

That is not really a problem. Not really. I have a life and I’m content living it from day to day and sharing thoughts and events that occur during the living. The problem is the immediacy of other peoples lives – or maybe the fact of carrying two identical blogs, meaning I cross post the one blog to other sites.

I receive comments, not on yesterdays blog subject or writings (some times I write of more then one event in a single post. You ever notice that?), and that leads to confusion on my part when, bouncing from bed (or another activity) I fire up the computer and find someone has sent me a note of interest in this event or that.

The event they reference or leave the note about is, at the minimum two days old in my life, but of immediate reality in theirs. Sometimes I receive a time/dated remark to a post days and days and even months removed (someone leaves a remark on an archived post years old. That years old thing is especially confusing when looking at the entry points of readers and one finds they came into the site from an article five or six years removed in the past.)

I’m a weak person. Mentally deficient even. I wear boots, loafers and don’t tie bows (usually) in my sneakers. I tie knots – if I do tie bows, I’ll tie a figure eight knot on top of it so it generally does not come untied. And I don’t untie the sneakers. No. I tie them loosely enough they become loafers.

Oh. And I become highly irritated when, after washing the sneakers, I have to re-tie those that come undone during the cycle. They never seem to fit correctly after washing. Just don’t.

Yes. Well, I’m drifting from the point of this post, which in all truthfulness, I’ve lost. I was thinking of politics when I started and wanted to express an unrelated rant to make a political point and became side tracked.

So I don’t know exactly what it was bugging me.

The American Thinker. That’s what it was.  The Democrats. The BIG LIE.

Got it.

The Thinker was on about the progressives and why they lie. In my case they were talking about the Democrats demonizing the Tea Party; which doesn’t make a lot of sense because the Tea Party isn’t an organized bunch of people, so what the Democrats are doing is trying to demonize what you THINK.

How’s that. Make you feel better?

Thinker says, in part:

As initial survey data showed (click here), a sizable portion of the Tea Party movement is non-Republican. A Gallup poll from March 2010 found that 50% of “Tea Party identifiers” were Republicans while 43% identified as independents and 7% as Democrats. That’s a perfect 50:50 split.
Of course, it was the huge swing group of oblivious independents/moderates who in November 2008 made Obama president, and elected the Pelosi-Reid Democratic Congress.
Well, in part, it’s these individuals — so-called “crossover voters” — that Democrats are assailing when they trash the Tea Party. If Democrats lose these folks in November 2012, as they did in November 2010, they’ll lose the presidency and Congress. I know people in the Tea Party, and they are hardly terrorists and racists; they are very offended at being so maligned.

So what the Dems are doing is playing mind games.

How’s it feel?

About like blog stat entry points and emails referencing material one has long lived beyond?

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
