Why We Keep Blogging

A couple of commenters have asked this. The main reason is that the lies are still out there, still spreading. Although, as I have noted, very few big liberal blogs have covered Loose Change, when you look at the teeny, tiny blogs there is a steady drumbeat of support for this movie.

Here's a Technorati search for "Loose Change" for blogs with a lot of authority (hundreds of links from other blogs). As you can see by looking at the graph, the term barely registers. A few of the posts have to do with money, several are from my Brainster's blog, and a couple are from good folks like Damien Penny. I believe the only blog with a lot of authority talking about Loose Change positively in the last two weeks is an Italian blog, but even there I'm not positive; Babel Fish didn't settle the matter.

But if we drop the authority to nothing a different picture emerges. There are about 100 references to that term per day and while some still concern coins jingling in one's pocket, there are a startling number of posts on teeny, tiny little blogs recommending this trash film.

Oh boy! "Liberals" are part of the problem. They will never give attention to Loose Change. Like the controlled right, the controlled left's job is to keep people blaming each other and not point the finger of blame where it supposed to go. This problem transcends the left and right paradigm so many of you are hopelessly trapped in.

Well it certainly explains why there's so few "truthers". You're not left o right, up or down. You're off in your own little dimension. Parallel universe maybe?

Actually I do believe this is more of a political issue then many people think.

Almost every insult I got from my movie always accused me, in the end, that I am a supporter of Bush.

These people do not care about the victims of 9/11. They either want to be against the government because it's cool and rebellious, or have a reason to hate Bush.

We all appreciate the blog. Thanks for putting it up.

I think you'd find, literally, millions of websites posting about Loose Change because of all the on-line journals, personal diaries, myspace, facebook capabilities out there for regular people to tell everyone and the world what they've discovered.

You had something on the 9/11 poll where Republicans buy the official version by 70%. There was something on the news last night on a new poll on the Iraq War that had 66% of Republicans in support. Its team spirit-partisanship like on Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity where callers refer to the Republican Party as "Us" and "We," as though they've got the contract for something because Republicans are in power.

Not parallel universe. Once one sees the mechanism used to control them it quickly becomes passé. Snap out of it guys, if you honestly love this Constitutional Republic a.k.a. America, you'll see through the lies.

We see through your lies. Does that count?

My "lies" are simply truths you don't like. I can lead you to the water but I can't make you drink.

Funny how your "truths" get obliterated one after another in here yet you apparently fail to have any recognition of that fact. I don't know what you've been drinking but it surely isn't water. Kool-Aid is more like it.

Obliterated? Only in your eyes. But you'll change your tune in due time.

You've been obliterated in the eyes of far more than my own. If you could produce any actual, testable, verifiable, hard evidence than I would change my mind.

Unfortunately, you ignore all the existing actual, testable, verifiabe, hard evidence available and still refuse to change your mind. So out of the two of us, it's plainly clear that you're the one whose mind is firmly closed, barred, locked tight, welded shut, and hermetically sealed.

Ok, I've tried to be objective and keep an open-mind and read this thing faithfully every day, but...this blog SUUUUUUCKS.

I'm officially signing off, because it's nothing but a waste of time. There are so few facts in here, way too much opinion, and a whole lot of assholes.

So, ciao. See you fuckers when the truth comes out!

Ah, the ever popular "You Suck!" retort.

A: Why is it that not a single structural engineer has backed you guys up?

B: You suck.

A: I never thought of it that way!

LOL. A sterling example of objectivity and an open mind, eh?

You can lead nesnyc to logic, but you can't make him think.

Abby, thanks, that was the first laugh I've had around here for quite a while.

That's the second person in as many days who bitched about the blog and left because it didn't conform to their biased view. Good riddance.

Horseshit! You haven't been objective, you've been handwaving and crying like a baby the whole time.

If you want opinion go back to 911blogger, I'm sure your walled garden would be happy to see you come home to pick the daisies.
