[Interesting] Selected Blog Quotes

Posted by Lex Fear on September 22, 2006

“Just as many Germans woke up after World War Two claiming they simply didn’t know what came over them, many right wing Americans are going to have to one day explain their support for a regime that attempted to justify torture.” – Kel, The Osterley Times

“For my part, I wish reporters would stop saying that people are on the ground. Troops on the ground in Afghanistan… Our people on the ground in Iraq… Where else would they be? Larking around in trees?” – Harry Hutton, Chase Me Ladies… I’m In The Cavalry

“But who’s surprised with the pro-choice culture we live in? If a mother can kill her baby just two minutes before it’s born why should it acquire the dignity to live only two minutes after?” – Jessica Clark, Dead Yet Living

“A special message to all the new readers from Daily Kos: Get lost we don’t want your type round here.” – Guido Fawkes, Guido Fawkes’ Blog

“Whilst at the DIY superstore, I carefully considered the assorted power tools before me and then proceed to pick the one I felt most comfortable performing the ‘quick-draw’ with.” – Mr Angry, I Am Livid

“Chavez is addressing Bush at a level that Bush likes to engage the world.” – Memiors of a Samurai Barber

“My quibble here is minor, but one that I think presents an important note to the conversation. Clinginess, emotional instability, a propensity toward manipulation, and an inclination toward jealousy are not actually stereotypes of women, —but are certainly stereotypes of Evil Ex-Girlfriendstm.” – The Dane, Nowhersville

“The pope has all those crazy muslim extremists with their panties in a bunch, which in turn has led to them living up to the adjective I just assigned them, which in turn has led to tons of people doing google searches involving the phrase “crazy muslims”.” – Patriot Xeno, Right Hand of God

“In the end, we have reacted out of fear, willing to do anything for a false sense of security, which is exactly what the terrorists want you to do. Acting out of fear creates chaos. What most people don’t realize is that you have always had a higher probability of dying by suicide than by a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. That includes 2001.” – Alabama Moderate (comments), The Gun Toting Liberal

“YES I know some may find it hard to believe I do believe in the BIBLE” – Mark De Hoog, Blog This

“Right I’m off to buy shoes…

Gosh that last line was camp.” – Yellow, Dark Side of the Moon Chaplaincy

“Please do not fret, for I have wondrous and magical plans for this little corner of the internet” – Reed, The Plural of Ajax

“There seems to be a trend in uniform departments to move good people constantly. Crap officers get to stay in post forever. HR deliver the usual nonsense to justify this – the infamous ‘development opportunity’. Just as you get to know the players, you are moved. This is why we stare blankly at members of the public when they try and tell us about local problems.” – Inspector Gadget, Police Inspector Blog

“The bottom line is the Pope meant absolutely no offense by his remarks and he owes no one an apology. Anyone who carefully reads his lecture can clearly see that this debate has been blown way out of proportion.” – Jimbo, The Pope Blog

[Blogidarity] New Offerings

Posted by Lex Fear on May 6, 2006

Some new links I have to share with with you which I have found through other excellent blogs:

I Work With Fools – A blog where you can write in and share your nightmare stories of work hell. It’s a good place to let off steam if you don’t already use your blog or have a blog to do that.

I Am Livid – I thought my ranting was pretty vitriolic at times till I came upon Mr Angry;s blog. Still it’s a very funny read and some good observations, exactly what I like to see.

Gun Toting Liberal – I’m neither red or blue, the closest I would consider myself liberal with conservative values. I have to say that this is an excellent blog with some excellent commentary of US politics. I agree with a lot of things said by the GTL and it is very different from the typical left/right stances.

Ideal Government – A UK blog with articles on the present government and ideas on how it should be. Anyone who is concerned about ID cards, sweeping legislation and general mismanagement by New Labour should check this out.

Not Proud of Britain (But Would Like To Be) – Another UK blogger with political commentary which is pretty much summed up in the title. Short posts and easy to digest.

Whilst I’m at it, I would also like to credit some of my existing links, so hats off to:

Sojourners – I am currently reading a book by Jim Wallis called God’s Politics, and I’m finding it an excellent read. It’s helping to shape my own view of politics and culture.

Pepipoo – The best place to go for UK Motorists for advice on the law and their rights.

I Heart Irony – Rohan described himself (in my comments a while back) as a frustrated writer, which motivated him to start this blog. As a frustrated IT Monkey (and frustrated UK citizen), I can fully relate. This is also what makes his blog especially funny, witty and gives it edge. Keep it up Rohan, you’ve got good observational skills.

The Policemans Blog – PC Copperfield’s is the first blog I read, after spotting it a the national newspaper. This is the one that got me thinking of the idea of blogging out my frustrations. PC Copperfield opens the doors that are normally shut to the public and in doing so exposes the general bollotics that takes place at the higher levels of our police force. At the same time showing us that ordinary coppers are just like us and also share similar resentments to the target/statistic driven culture we all live in.

The Magistrates Blog – Another thought-provoking, revealing blog, this time into the closed world of the courts. Bystander affirms my faith that the courts are there to protect us and to allow us to be judged fairly and equally. Magistrates and Judges are people, they are appointed for our benefit. A lot of public organisations use the courts as a threat, as though it was just another part of the prison system. This is a wrong perception of justice and I am grateful for a blog like this.

You’re Nicked – Like PC Copperfield, Stan Still is one of the flourishing anonymous police blogs that are blowing the doors open on this institution. I find this blog thoughtful and intuitive.

Overheard in the Office – Short, funny dialogs between co-workers, managers and other company bods. This is always good for a quick chuckle during my lunch break.

In Training – This blog is by a girl who is engaged to a Royal Marine. As well as just personal experience, Kath offers quite a funny, energetic commentary on politics and culture of her country. Fiercely patriotic and ‘right wing’, she also shows an interest in UK politics and culture.

I do want to comment on other blogs and links, but for now I’m spent, so keep coming back to check!
