Open Thread

Hey, indeedy. Rock on. Or however Duncan Black gets thousands of comments at Eschaton while contributing absolutely nothing for the tenth time each day to the national discourse.

Heh, indeed. Open thread. Also, too.

Repeat 487 times.

You don't get the traffic, he doesn't make much sense. All in all, I think you come out ahead.

(Although he probably rakes in some good change with the ads.)

As desperate as I am for money (and August is still looking pretty grim), the one thing I will never do is monetize my site through ads. I'm getting sick and tired of going to Eschaton, DKos, FDL and all the big liberal blogs and seeing ads for NewsMax and the Romney campaign.

Brother, after all the traffic I got from you (including your previous blogs), if I had a dime to spare, you'd get it. But I'm almost in the same boat... my munificent ten-hour-a-week job ends on the 31st. After that, who knows?

Sucks to be a 57-year-old who hasn't been able to find work in 4 years.

And the rethugs have the BALLS to talk about their amazing economic recovery...

jp - Isn't it good though for Rethuglican ad money to be wasted by "falling on deaf ears?"

You got a site worth checking in on regularly. I'll make it a point not to merely lurk so much.

Be well.

Lance: Through the years, you've been one of my few regular commenters. I've never had the slightest problem with you. You even leave the seat down and turn off the lights when you go. Now, if I could only get you to clean out the litter box once in a while...

jp - re: litter box - My cats hate me for my lack of attention there too (whadya mean it can't go one more day, Fluffy?).

You're a good man, jp.

That counts far more than numbers. Too many people fall into largely represented categories you or I would not want to be part of no how (akin to Groucho's, "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

Its always been a mystery why D. Black even bothers - he never says anything except to piss and moan about people who drive in Philly. Gave up checking Eschaton years ago. Stupid blog.

Yours I love.

Thanks, DMomma. I only go there to pimp this blog then I'm out. If you can spare it, please show your appreciation by dropping what you can in the Paypal kittie. August is looking scarier and scarier.
