Yes, I’m still sick. No I won’t bore you with details. Not to sick to crawl over to the computer and put together a few odds and ends though.
First, I wanted to link to a post I did in reaction to Ferdinand’s Manifesto. If I had it to do over, I’d tweak a few things, but I still stand by it. Many of the points I make could just as easily apply to the new Mens Issue’s web magazine started by Welmer. I’m really rooting for it to be successful.
I hope The Spearhead becomes one stop shopping for men( and like minded women) of all ages and stations in life, who are concerned with mens issues, both at the micro, and macro level. The nine contributors are all good writers and thinkers. Send some traffic and feedback their way.
A few political notes…
The whole Obama birth certificate “conspiracy” never did anything for me. I think the energy and focus on it has been silly and counter productive.
The fact that he hasn’t shown the press his original certificate does nothing to convince me either. Either something on it is mildly embarrassing, or he understands that it is to his advantage to have “right wingers” foaming at the mouth about a non issue for years on end. Seems like smart, Chicago style politics to me.
However, since before the election, I thought this issue was legitimate and worth pursuing. The evidence that Bill Ayers wrote Dreams From My Father is substantial. I have little doubt that Ayers wrote the book that made so many “conservatives” get weak in the knees for Obama.
On that note, let me plug a piece written by T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII, a real conservative who understands what kind of guy Obama is.
If you haven’t checked out Andrew Breitbart’s new website, I would encourage you to do so. It’s the place that broke the Acorn and NEA scandals. If you believe in the message, I encourage you to link to it.
