Obviously, this blogsite of mine is a labor of love. I don't get paid to write or give my opinions. I don't even pimp it out with advertisements. Would I love to be a paid opinion-giver? Sure, but until then, I have a day job and this is my side hobby. I do, however, wish I had more comments on my articles sometimes.It can occasionally be disheartening to spend several hours sometimes putting an article together in my sparse spare time and then getting no feedback on it. Sure, we all love the validation of a pat on the back, but sometimes even a dissenting opinion still lets me know folks are reading. I get traffic, mind you, lots of it actually, but seldom do I get real comments. Such is life.
That said, I just got an anonymous comment from someone who came across an article I wrote FOUR YEARS AGO, on August 2, 2008. In said article, I praised Jon Voight for his outspoken criticism of then-candidate Obama. It was refreshing to see a Hollywood Conservative.
Last week, Jon spoke at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Something tells me that my new commenter was actually trolling the Interwebz for articles pertaining to last week's speech and came across mine by accident. Regardless, this is what I received:
Anonymous said...This plays well to the crazies, but what about the people who actually know what socialism is, or who know that Obama is seated well to the right of Richard Nixon on the political scale?
And this was my response:
Are you seriously holding Richard Nixon up as the paragon example of a Republican to compare against B-Hussein the Obamessiah? At least pick someone alive, instead of a disgraced criminal from 50 years ago. And are you speaking from experience as a Socialist?
I don't exactly consider myself a crazy. I'm really not even remotely close to being "fringe" on the Right. I'm not religious, I have no problem with gays, I don't have a stockpile of ammo in a bunker with food for a year waiting for the Zombie Apocalypse, and I haven't eaten at a Chik-Fil-A in a looooong time. But I do want Obama out of the Oval Office. Period. End Quote. Thanks for reading, though. I appreciate the comment even if I disagree with you.
