Phnom Penh, Cambodia
This blog was born of my frustration with the endless arguments around gun ownership and regulations and climate change idiocy. Not only did I KNOW the conservative arguments on those topics and so many more were wrong, but I knew why we were having so much trouble convincing the country to vote in Democratic candidates who would actually enact the changes that polling said Americans so desperately wanted and needed.
But, then, the very model of a very stable genius decided to join the deep back bench of Republican candidates for president, some how screwed up and actually won! and we’ve been fighting the deepening cognitive dissonance of the conservative voter ever since. #COVID19 just compounded and magnified the problems that we were already experiencing.
I hope that in some small way all the snarky, sarcasticky, profaney ramblings of have helped my readers understand the reasons these things are happening and what we as citizens can do about them and cope with the incredible stress that Trump’s America has put us all through.
I have to say that as a full-time citizen and part-time blogger it has been tough to keep going. Real life has a tendency to bite you in the ass at times. It helps that I have some loyal readers who comment as frequently as they do. I can see from the statistics that WordPress publishes that it is only a very small percentage of visitors who do leave any sign that they’ve been there, a like, a rating, a comment, or a share. It’s nice when they do. We appreciate it.
Well, y’all, that’s the story of Ye Olde Blogge for now. If you have any questions or comments to make, I’d be happy to answer or respond.
