Four Years of Blogging

Share

ThePinkFlamingoLogo

The Pink Flamingo went on line at the old site on October 4, 2005. There is no way I will even copy the first post it was so pathetic, not that it isn’t still pathetic. During those four years the world has changed.

When The Pink Flamingo began blogging my main promise was to support the Republican Party and be as honest as I possibly could. This has not changed. Conservatives have changed. There is a tendency online for conservatives to be more irrational and more extreme. I’ve seen that Libertarian Party infusion I’ve been fearing step in and attempt to hijack the party. Thanks to those same Losertarians good, decent Republicans are now damning George W. Bush and worshiping a seriously disturbed Libertarian demigod who knows when to turn on the tears.

Today I am far more pessimistic than I was four years ago. This pessimisim is not about Barack Obama, who is on the way to becoming comic relief. The pessimism I see is the constant attack on good Republicans by Libertarians who have no shame, no honor, and no decency. Lying about their conservative leanings, these anti-war, conspiracy believing, nuts are marching lock-step with their fearless leaders like Ron Paul and a few others, taking our country over a cliff.
