The Hunger Game of Thrones

This semi-functioning Blogger interface is really starting to piss me off. I could not even find a way to edit yesterday's post. I have said for a long time blogging is dying, and it looks like Google is doing its utmost to kill it off. I feel like Dr. Jack has the old blog strapped down and is trying to shove that rubber mask over my face. Only instead of Kevorkian, it is Google and Blogger driving the Van of Death.

I had a political post all composed in my head, but I am just not in the mood.  Either you know and understand Obama is nothing but a walking socialist tax and spend cliche or you don't. If you really think the problem is we are not taxing enough, you ignorance of mathematics is beyond remediation. We could take 100% of everything every millionaire and billionaire has and the Feds will still spend more than they take in.

It is the spending, stupid.

As I said before, the only political card the Democrats really have to remain in power is an ignorant, politically uneducated electorate.

On the bright side, if you're a died-in-the-wool Democrat, the Roman Emperors used the bread and circus tactic with success for about 400 years before the decay ond societal breakdown led to the sacking of the city by Alaric the Goth.

On the other, less optimistic hand, the socialism as envisioned by Obama and company has pretty much failed everywhere it has been tried starting with the nutcases in Revolutionary France (where even bathing was frowned upon because that meant you thought you were better than someone who did not bathe) and continuing right through the shining examples of modern North Korea, Zimbabwe and Cambodia. Europe is heading away from Big Government programs as fast as possible while the Democrat Party is doing its best to saddle our great grandchildren with debt that makes the Greeks look like mere amateurs.

I guess this is a political post after all.

I almost commented the other day when you complained about blogger, but thought you might not want to hear it.
Fools rush in...
I just switched to blogger, as you may have noticed, to get certain benefits I wasn't getting with my domain provider.
They told me that if I wanted to improve my blogging experience, to upgrade my agreement and use Wordpress. That sounded like to much work and money.
Since, I've had no negatives at all, (except Freddy posted at my old place that she had problems commenting at my new place).
However, I'm not using Windows on the laptop I blog on.

Seriously, take a look see at Wordpress.

And I'm afraid we do in fact have an ignorant, politically uneducated electorate.
