Vanity, Vanity, All Is Vanity!
I am a vain person. I know it! I confess it! I am not ashamed of it.
I mean, after all, I have spent more than 8 decades succeeding and failing and then succeeding again and I have gotten where I am today by pure guts, grit, opportunities taken advantage of and …. Divine Intervention. I am entitled to a little vanity!
One sign of my vain nature has been my tendency to be overly concerned about how many people I can attract to read this blog. That, in itself, is a totally frustrating and mostly useless exercise in both arrogance and vanity.
So, I have been guilty of doing what most vain bloggers do —- I have posted my posts in big, bold letters (almost shouting, actually) and I have been overly concerned with width of the material, space between the lines, quality of the typeface and a whole bunch of other things that blogging experts (I detest the word, “Experts” because in most cases I have found that “The Experts” don’t really know any more about anything than I do …. I mean how many of the “experts” are millionaires or billionaires after all?
Hey, “Experts,” show me your accomplishments in life and I will decide whether to view you as experts or not.
Right now, I am in a guilty mode for all the vain things I have said and done and for the time being I am reducing the size of all this blog crap because I don’t really have a right to believe that I have anything to say to anybody about any subject under the sun because most everybody knows more about things than I do already …. and who the f**k am I to come along and pretend to be somebody that I am not?
I blog about politics!
Why do I blog about politics?
I blog about politics because I like stirring the shit and there is no more shit to be stirred anywhere else than in politics.
Now you have a grain of truth from me …. for a change.
So I am not going to obsess anymore (for awhile any … I am so damned unsettled and changeable that it is not funny) — I am not going to obsess about appearances and blog visits and numbers or any of that other senseless useless crap … and I am just going to spill my guts in rants about anything and everything that comes along —- and, as usual I am going to be controversial as hell.
So good morning and God bless you … and if you are here, then know that I appreciate you for taking your precious time to visit with me this morning. I will do my damndest to entertain you, to inform you or to shock you.
Love to everybody,
