Nah. I have a feed reader so I get the scoop from about 100 blogs a day. Here's one for you.

You'll find Amanda, (who resides in Austin TX, by the way) shares many of your views.

Godz46 Godz46:
Seriously though...how do you get a "feed reader"?


Go to www.feedreader.com and have a read. It should explain most everything. You'll find that most blogs and news outlets have "RSS". In fact, this site has RSS. Once you have installed your feedreader you simply "copy shortcut" from the little orange RSS, XML or ATOM box on a website, paste it into "New Feed" on your feedreader and it will update regularly.

You can get bulk RSS feeds as well, then edit out the ones you don't want. Best way to find them is with a google search along the lines of "RSS FEED"

Have fun!

Amanda sounds like a feminazi I wish she would move to Canada


Here's something off a another blog for you NYC.:

$1:
It seems like any time any one I know writes a letter to the editor, calls in to a radio show, posts a diary here, or really expresses their self in any way politically, they get some sort of email, letter or call back, from republican "patriot", calling them names and accusing them of hating America.

I just read Mike Stark's recent diary, which he updated to include a little bit of badgering he's received, and I want to say something, just to get it out there, just in case anyone with a shred of decency or half a brain in their head still wonders. For all the other folks, the wingnuts who want to intimidate us, I have a message too.

Liberals do not, DO NOT, NOT hate America. Fuck you if you think that. Fuck you if you think we should all be deported to Russia, or France, or even Canada. Nothing against Canada, or, hey, even France or Russia, but this is my home, just like it's the home of millions and millions of other progressives who are not traitors, who aren't America-haters.

Progressives and liberals DO NOT want the terrorists to win.

We DO NOT hate the troops.

We DO NOT hate the rich.

We DO NOT hate life.

We DO NOT want to turn you gay, or wipe out your religion, or make you have an abortion.

So stop saying it. And fuck you if you do, fuckers.

What do we want?

We want a fair shake for everyone, regardless of the circumstances of their birth. Some day, I'll get sick. Really sick. I don't want to have to be wealthy in order to afford treatment. And I want the doctor who treats me to be the best doctor available. I don't want the best doctor in the world to be sitting in jail somewhere, or working at Denny's, just because they happened to be born poor, or black, or female, or, god forbid, gay.

We want to be able to drink the water and breathe the air. When I lived in New York City (I was there on 9/11, so don't you even fucking start with me, wingnut. I saw it. I saw the smoke and the fire, and the big empty hole in the sky, and the posters of lost love ones like wall paper everywhere you looked until you wanted to scream and cry and personally rip Osama's head off, so don't even fucking start.) every summer, they issued a smog advisory for the day. If you were old, or young, or sick, you weren't supposed to go outside. That's idiotic. God gave us the world, you say, to do what we will. Well ownership implies responsibility. If your dad gave you a car, would you trash it, or would you change the oil every 3000 miles?

We want to be able to say what we believe, and not have you folks act like fucks. An awful lot of you right wingers seem to want a Christian state, complete with the death penalty for heretics and gays and Jews and all the rest. That DOESN'T WORK. Look at Iran; look at Europe during the middle ages. It's ALWAYS A DISASTER. As soon as you wipe out all the liberals and heretics and gays, you'll start in after each other. You'll kill and kill and ten, or a hundred, or five hundred years will pass, and people will look back and wonder how you could have been so stupid. You want hell in America. You're not going to get it, because of one last thing that we are not:

We are not wimps.

Wingnut, my family has been in this country longer than yours. I guarantee it. My family has lived in the exact same place for thousands of years, and I'm not giving it up. We were sent on a long walk with small pox-infected blankets. We came back. We were shot and killed, and hunted for sport. We held on. Along the way, some of the toughest, meanest, orneriest folks in the history of the world married in. I'm Cherokee, German, Scotch, Irish, and African, black, yellow, brown, red, white, and fucking blue. I am an American. I am a patriot. I am not afraid of you, wingnut. WE are not afraid of you.

I will not give up. I will not back down. I will not move to Canada. I will stay on my mountain, and I will fight for the America I love, the one that stands for freedom, the one that is a shining beacon to all the world, showing a new way, a way out of medieval bloodlust and ethnic and tribal violence.

I don't hate America, wingnut, you do.

I agree with her post Xerxes It was a little childish that she needed to say fuck all the time. I think what makes America great is people like me and her on two different ends of the spectrum. I want what she wants just have two differnt ways of getting there. And NYC very rarely has a smog alert. I was in NYC on 9/11 also it was just as bad as she says.

Understandable. I read it three times now and I agree with almost 95% if not more of what she says. Her ethnic background is what america should be. Even though I am 100% Italian and so is my wife. But if and when I have children they could marry who they please thats America.

Oh please... go to her site and tell her that. [drool]

Ummm. I'm not sure how the author of that diatribe from the dailykos took on a female gender, but I think Kos is a "he".

It wasn't Kos who wrote that, it was just a regular contributor to the site. But you're right, it was a he.
