Why do you write a Blog Fred?
Lately, and several times in the past as well, I have had some people ask me why I blog, why I take the time and exert the effort.
“If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worthy reading,
Or do things worth the writing.” (Benjamin Franklin)
OK, here’s the *WHY*, short version; I was forced into 100% disability retirement when I was 48 years old, that was almost 15 years ago, and blogging is my *outlet*, it keeps a lot of people that really need to be *dealt with* from getting hurt.
I began this version of The TexasFred Blog back in April of 2007, this is the 3rd edition of TTFB, the 1st edition was a freebie blog from Google and as most folks know, you get what you pay for, and it was FREE. The 2nd edition was accidentally *crashed* by my blog guru guy, so, now I have this.
I write about a myriad of topics, I am not one dimensional, but my primary interest has been guns, politics and what has/is happening to this once great nation. I have pointed out, in detail, how the Democrats have done irreparable damage to the United States, and as time passed I came to realize that the GOP had moved so far to the left that they were nothing more than Democrat Lite and not much, if ANY better than the Democrats.
Sadly, the GOP has embraced the ways of our enemies; Communists, Socialists, Liberals and other assorted trash.
So, I began a selfish indulgence as I used the blog to vent my anger and frustrations. It beat the *other* options, and let’s face it; I’m a BIG guy, I don’t look good in *prison orange*, it’s just NOT my color.
Once upon a time I had aspirations of making a bit of money as a blogger, I knew I had a lot to say, and it always seemed that people wanted to hear it, but other than a few very generous donors I haven’t made much money, just enough to keep the blog on line, and of late my donations have dried up, but after a while even that didn’t bother me as I began to actually see, and feel that I was making a difference.
Why do I blog? Democrats and Liberals hate me. That is a great reason in MY opinion.
Yes, I really am OK with that, you see, I stand for everything the Dems, Libs and other assorted moonbats hate.
I love my immediate family, I love this nation and I love *some* of my fellow patriots as if they were blood family. I have some *blood family* that leans a bit to the Left, or has a bit of loose wiring and has made fools and hypocrites of themselves on numerous occasions, so, I try to avoid people like that.
I distance myself from those that talk out of BOTH sides of their mouth. If you can’t speak the truth, and stick to it, keep your mouth shut.
Socially I make every attempt possible to avoid those on the other side of the political spectrum, not because I’m afraid of them but because I don’t have the time to waste trying to change their way of thinking. I’m not going to change their Liberal minds any more than they are going to stop me from being a staunch Conservative.
I detest Libtards and old Hippies that support Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. I detest Obama, but it’s NOT a racial thing, regardless of what Liberals tell you. I detest Obama because he is a Liberal/Socialist, America hating dope head and he is trying to destroy America, and to this very day I am convinced that he is a Muslim and will give this nation away if at all possible.
I call it as I see it, be the target of my criticisms Black, White, Democrat, Republican or anything somewhere in between, I speak the truth as I see it. Can a man be more *fair* than that?
I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and an avid shooter.
I am a very adamant supporter of stopping ILLEGAL immigration into the USA and for removal of all that have come here illegally. I have made some very forceful statements regarding what I believe needs to be done to secure our borders and how the ILLEGAL INVADERS need to be dealt with, and nothing has yet been said or done that changes my views on the invaders or their fate.
I’m not a Republican nor am I a Democrat. I am that which both Parties fear, a reasonably well educated, Conservative, America 1st gun owner that isn’t afraid to speak his mind.
Why do I blog?
I hope to be remembered; as a patriot, as an honest man and a true friend to those few I consider worthy of friendship.
I hope to somehow make a difference in the direction of this nation, for the benefit of my children and grandchildren, America, my fellow citizens and our future generations.
That is why I blog. Can you think of a better reason?
