MODERATION


MODERATION
Do not lecture me moderation,
For I beheld the zealot's rapt gaze,
As he laughed in the vault,
Of a looted bank,
And set good money ablaze.
Do not whine of self preservation,
I will not have you so blab,
Remembering the selfless son,
Of Revolution,
Who took out a mortar with his cab.
And,please, do not speak of freedom,
As you watch the fascists,
devour Spain.
Your precious freedom will come to nothing,
If our Republic dies in vain.
Durrati

Durrati, it's a spendid poem, as was the previous one.
One thing I've learned in this long, arduous journey of my life is that you have to let go of all the things that cause you discomfort, anger or pain, because it only blocks the positive energy that builds and enlightens.

Both poems were written years ago, and I cannot let go of the pain of the dreams and ideals betrayed in Spain. The world would now be a much different place if the Republic had not have to turn to Stalin for aide. The same sorry ass story in Vietnam and Nicaragua. I have promised free reign here and I beg you do not be put off by the chatting. Nothing was going on so we talked a bit... I hold no grudges against J.C., I loves me some J.C., as anyone who read my comments can easy discern. I think you know where my resentment lies. Please do not abandon me in these troubled times, you know well mt heart. I invite you again to e-mail.

He was gruff and imposing- or as imposing as an 80X80 cartoon can be. If he'd only waited until I took my new glass-rod vehicle up the urethra- and down the vas deferens, of Dennis Hastert, he'd surely have let me stay. Especially if I'd have programmed the glass vehicle to self-destruct on the way out.

This'll be my only statement on the subject because it's just silly. I could have let it go and probably would have, until the man himself dropped the racist/homophobic/misogynistic bomb on me and duratti.

A lot of the time, I'm an asshole. I'm arrogant and, occasionally, I'm downright misanthropic. But I'm not even remotely any of the things he was "99% sure"- an accusation if I ever heard one- I was.

Let's just say that I have been and continue to be a fervent supporter and an activist on women's issues, gay rights, and pretty much any cause in which there's an underdog to be championed. I could bang out a CV to establish my humanist pedigree but it would be pointless- as I don't need to justify myself to a tinpot dictator at a humorous but insignificant point in cyberspace.

JoeDon-
Although I don't have any animosity towards the General personally, I also don't have anything but camaraderie towards you and Durrati either. I made a personal decision to make amends over there b/c that's the way I am. And if being an asshole and arrogant (not sure if misanthropic can be included) is a crime, then there would be no sitting Repub. politicians.....;) I both admire your and Durrati's willingness to defend yourselves and cringed at the way it all played out. FWIW, I think I'm done posting over there- I check the posts and threads, but my heart just isn't in it anymore- I think my short-lived session of that kind of specific snark is broken. C'est la vie. I loved my time there, and now I've met a whole new cadre of digital community. I'm just glad you're still in the batter's box over here and I didn't 100% lose a friend and snark mentor.
That being said, I'll never view hastert again without thinking of the ultimate kidney stone......
Drop me an e-mail if you've got stuff to say in that format.

I'm back and, as always, leaving all to wonder if I've dropped off the face of the earth. I've merely capitulated to pain relieving medicine that has me feeling quite human for a change.
You made some very kind remarks about keeping me going here. My husband is a good man, and is trying, with the help of a computer science engineer friend, to get a laptop that will be shoulder and arm friendly. I am really very fortunate to have my husband. I'd be fortunate to have him as a friend. It's been no picnic for him and he's been as steadfast as the snow off the lake during a northwest wind. In other words, I've always been able to count on him.
I don't know that I've sorted out my opinion of JC yet. I harbor no ill will toward him as a person. I don't know him as a person, only as a blogger/businessman. His blog was the first blog I'd ever had the courage at which to post.
The only time he disappointed me was during a fundraising campaign. It's something all bloggers do, but I was a neophyte and took seriously a post he placed asking for $3000.00 (I believe was the sum) and he sounded very mysterious and a little desperate. I gave him money, as did many people, thinking there may have been a family emergency or some other personal trouble.
I hope there wasn't anything of that nature. He never said there was. I was happily duped into donating to the blog. I say happily, because I'd rather it be that than any of the things I imagined that he wouldn't tell us he needed the money for.
I was relieved, but I was pissed. I felt like I, and maybe a lot of other people, were the joke.
I dropped in to lurk a bit today, and read the latest rinse and spit treatment of a renegade poster and thought of a new way to botch John Donne.
Ask not for whom the gong tolls. It tolls for thee.
Canuck,
You've already revealed some of what I wanted to discuss with you. I get to feeling dreadfully depressed having been so active in my community and career. How do you make peace, to sound cliche, with life-altering disability? I struggle so with not only the physical pain, but the loss of my old life, and well-meaning family members (thank heaven I have them) who can't understand why I can't get better, even with doctors explanations. Do you have any wisdom to help me cope?

jackie_o-
It's so good to hear your thoughts. It's like they all say, behind every great woman there's a liberated renaissance man. ;) God, I'm laughing at that one! There's one some of the General's troops would tar and feather me for. There's actually a very telling comment, around #169, on the Katherine Harris Thread, about tolerance from a lurker. It really grabbed me. Speaking of which, I think our resident excommunicated friends are more apt to respond in anger to this particular situation. For me, if I am betrayed by a close female partner, nothing hurts as much at that. Yet I've learned to either grow a thicker skin or lose my naivete, I don't know if it's healthy or not, it's just survival. I think this will, as all things do, heal in time. I love the General's mission and I respect the courage and the sheer audacity of his blog, I've just decided it's not for me, at least not for now. THIS is my favorite thing about the net, meeting and sharing with interesting people I would never otherwise meet. It's an amazing tool to both destroy and build community. Which leads to my next thought- it doesn't replace the face-to-face friendships I've lost, and believe me, I've lost a lot, particularly in the last two years, but it does provide something close to it. I'm an intimacy-oriented human being for many, many reasons- I find in knowing the real part of a person you can also be real, and that's the Holy Grail of life for me- the only thing I'll be taking with me when I do the off-the-mortal-coil shuffle.
One more thought- I have a theory. I believe that the General is actually the first fully sentient Artificial Intelligence that the web has birthed. Think about it- does anyone know if he really exists? And I thank Jeebus every day he's on our side. Now, as to wisdom to help the coping, I have lot's of thoughts and experiences and ideas, any of which could be helpful, but wisdom is in the mind of the recipient.......I just wanted to offer you the choice of posting it here or in e-mail form, ok? I'm going to post about universal participation in prejudices on my blog in a few minutes.
There are gongs in my dreams-

P.S. The only thing I ever, ever take, besides my vitamins and minerals, for arthritis pain is Advil. Period.

Hey Gang,

First my thoughts on J.C. I think he's a funny guy with a big ole mortgage up there in the northwest. I read on the web that the blog is worth something a little over half a mil. Not bad for a part tine gig...
That's what all that " I didn't feel like commenting the past few days" shit is about. There tellin' the general that he's not going to be getting their hits and hits are where the money is. He would get more hits if some of his regulars would go away. I think he's sincere about his politics but confused. Where would comedy be if black people had rose up in anger against one of their own and said "that is too painful you can't say nigger on the stage?"
Will they never learn that comedy is a natural ally to our cause and stridency it's enemy????

Joe Don, MzNick's callin' the shots our wee Lil General is dancing.

Jackie,

How delightful... "For Whom The Gong Tolls" on my site! Yer a sly one.
We all thank the Gods for your hubby, it is reassuring to know that at you have his steadfast support, which we can give in words, but words and deeds are different things, Heh?

I believe this is the comment that Jackie-0 was referring to at the General's, the remark J.C. thought so offensive that HE Himself had to appear to rebut it, and call her offensive, and some of my best friends are black..blah...blah...blah.

"being african american, being brown all my life, and knowing a great deal about descrimination, i will explain to you what it feels like to see another brown person enter this country without so much as a thank to those who came before them. death, lynchings, marches, sit-ins, shootings, dogs, hoses, hatred and violence, did we come thro all of that just to let someone else in for free? while you're going all soft and gooey for the kind, noble, gentle illegal alien, just remember how your unions shut out black men who wanted to join, kept them from aprenticeships, needed to learn some of the highly skilled trades, kept those jobs for their sons who now go to college, so the jobs go to the gentle illegal alien, who gets low wages no benefits and job training because it's cheaper. no, these illegal aliens are not the new "nigger", they are the new white man who will someday be getting what we still can't.
A Brown Gurl | 03.31.06 - 2:05 am |"

The truth can hurt. I love hispanics people and culture as everyone who visit my site knows, but brown girl is right, this hispanic generation of field hands will join the melting pot much easier than her people.

It's funny, it's the last thing I think of re:blogs on the left, that they're worth anything $-wise.
Re: the fish, again, rub it in, that's it, rub it in. We used to have incredible stocks of perch up here, but they've had to cut the daily take in half last year- it's the feeder fish right above minnows, so if the population is really hurting, everything does. Some people were taking a 100/day and selling them to fish 'n chip huts. I haven't caught a decent one since I was a teenager.

That is that comment I was referring to. The whole thing is, what difference should it make to anyone what she feels. Since when have bloggers become the arbitrators of right and wrong as far as the feelings and opinions of commentators. She was simply speaking from her own life experience and expressing herself in her own vernacular. So, what's the problem? I think it's in the fact that she's not towing the blog line.
It's a tricky issue. Anyone ready to discuss immigration has to be flexible enough to respect a lot of different viewpoints.
Glad you liked the gong line. I supppose there are only a few of us in a certain generation who would really get the joke.
Canuck,
I'll write, damnit, I do it tomorrow. Advil eats my stomach. The last anti inflammatory that worked was Bextra. Oh well.

I guess I feel a little mad at myself for letting myself get swept up into the blogging for bags-o-cash. I know it's not just JC. It's the whole system. They used to have the high road when it came to the MSM, but money changes everything. And the people that post there, they're good folks.

After numerological meditation, along with a visit to my phrenologist, I have determined that the gibberish following the General of Nothing's threat to my "internets" future, is but an alphanumeric/binary love note to yours truly. It says the following;

"Dear Joe Don,

I am being held captive by Papa Legba, Yoruba, Lizzie Borden, and their proxy MzNicky- which means something I haven't been able to decipher along the lines of "shizznit" meaning "shit" in some colloquial Ebonics (all I can come up with so far is "Mickey").

She keeps me duct-taped to an Eames reproduction here in the study and forces me to view my screen through her voluminous, sheer, granny panties, which are saturated with a blend of Spanish Fly and Ipecac to keep me simultaneously aroused and nauseous.

Joe Don, I love you with every bone fragment of my brokeback and it is you I think of when I hurl and nut concurrently.

Please set me free. Please, man, I'll suck your...."


There you have it. Personally, I'd rather be in thrall to Blogslut but that's just me.

Also, I'm guessing that battle boy's real first name is Joshua- just from "Ofjoshua" and the "j.c. christian".

Joe Don,
I'm really not an "early adopter" so will you indulge me with this little question? Did JC have all your personal info in the email and send it back to you? This is the kind of stuff that makes me want to quit the internets.
With all due respect, I normally have my own policy (emphasis on OWN) on not publishing emails, but this is whistleblower in my book. If he turned your own personal information back on you, well, I think you know what I'm asking.

jackie_o,

What I published above- with all the numbers and routing(?) information(I really have no idea what it all means except that he knows where- and who- my ISP is), was what he sent me. I assume he collected the data through his role as blog administrator or big kahuna. He never published the info- merely sent it to me. And he had my email from a couple messages we exchanged previously when all was well. So, making the info public is my own doing. I'm just frankly stunned that a difference of opinion like we had there could possibly necessitate that kind of threat. Christ on a crutch, man, I'm already over it. No big deal.

I went back and posted a take on the whole thing under a different handle and used his email address because I figured mine would be blocked. Is that some kind of grievous offense, posting under an email not your own?

In any case, the whole thing is just silly.

joe don martin, esq. - Not questioning your intentions but it sounds a little iffy to me. I don't think posting under a new handle using someone else's email address is really sensible. I would be very upset if it happened to me and I think you would be too.

Let me say that I like your stuff. You are off the wall and I really appreciate off the wall. This whole recent GJ fiasco is a big cluster fuck. I would like to see you, Canuck and Durrati brought back in to the tent because honest to gawd I don't think any of you intended to shed real blood and you all have great stuff to contribute. That is the issue. Did any of you mean to hurt anyone over at JG? I don't think so.

Back to the General. My opinion is that he is about as a fine a person as any of us could ever meet. He has to walk on the razor edge every day. Poster's can get away with murder by comparison. I am continually amazed by the quantity and quality of his work. He is in an awkward position having to moderate a process and multiple constituencies, that are to some degree, out of his control. Pity the manager and pray that you (or me) don't wind up in those shoes.

There may be no way back. If so, move on.

Who runs the nonmen's auxillary? What is their mission? God help them. We have far more in common than what divides us.

Troops,(Jesus I'm calling you troops)

Fellows,

The General's blog if full of felching, rimming, fisting, anal sex references (Jackie has a much longer and funnier list) and a guy can't talk about getting a little pussy or exploring a vagina?? That's just weird... We all know male/female sexuality can be problematic, but some like it...

Joe,

the genral knows where you live and some of his troops are wack...have you thought about security? I mean besides the vibro ofjoedon sleeps with under her pillow, I suppose you could throw iton the floor and escape in the confusion...are you suggesting that our former leader is only 105% heterosexual? Blasphemey, Sir... Hoo Ha

Marks, the leadership is a hydra, but if you want to do the most harm, aim your arrow at Kentuck. I leave Annti out of it, though she took you to task, cause I like her even if she don't like me (some people get away with that) and because she is no prig...

durrati-
re: troops- perhaps you're developing a case of the Generals? I always knew power corrupts.... And remember, if it's the captain's mess, let him clean it up!

Kid,

"I have been an Anarchist all my life," he replied, "I hope I have remained one. I should consider it very sad indeed, had I to turn into a general and rule the men with a military rod. They have come to me voluntarily, they are ready to stake their lives in our antifascist fight. I believe, as I always have, in freedom. The freedom which rests on the sense of responsibility. I consider discipline indispensable, but it must be inner discipline, motivated by a common purpose and a strong feeling of comradeship."
