For me it is always a good read because it highlights the best and worst of our human existence, it is controversial, it is confrontational, and as a result never really dull. It is also probably the only place I can go on the Internet and be called a redneck or an imperialist.
I guess my passive resistance philosophy doesn't cut the mustard with everyone.
Just in case you are wondering I am not offended at being a redneck or an imperialist. It is kind of amusing in that perversely funny sad kind of a way. I have been labeled this way because I commented on another commentator's assertion that Chinese Indonesians have superior DNA to their Javanese counterparts and made a comment that Hitler also though his DNA and that of the Aryan Nation was far superior to that of the Jews. This was then interpreted to mean that I had labeled all Chinese Indonesians as little Hitlers in waiting, just not true!
However, it is what it is! The idea of superior DNA in one race is indicative of racism and degenerates into racial hatred, the idea was wrong then and the idea is wrong now! My whole life has been fighting for the underdog, fighting against injustice, and fighting for what I believe to be right. So, to stand accused of being a redneck and a white imperialist strangely enough put a smile on this man's dial!
What is even more interesting is that having an opinion and commenting on the May 1998 riots in Indonesia made me into a smart arse white imperialist! Bizarre...
As Uncle Ned always used to say (and until his dying breath)...Such is Life!
Now it is time to get on with life now that I have enjoyed my 15 minutes of fame as a redneck hillbilly and smart arse white imperialist.
