In the day and a half after I posted “Braley Bites” I had five views of my blog from Washington DC, including two from house.gov (U.S. House of Representatives) domain names. A similar phenomenon occurred when I posted “Bruce Braley Buffoonery” and “An Open Letter To Rep Bruce Braley.” I’m beginning to think I’ve got fans in high places.
Let me follow a hunch and extend a hearty welcome to Representative Braley or (more likely) a couple of his staffers. I’m glad to have you here! Anyone with an open mind is welcome.
Let me start off by saying I have nothing against Braley personally. He may very well be a nice person in private. I don’t know; I’ve never met him. It’s his public policies that I don’t like. Unfortunately, the progressive policies that he promotes affect me quite intimately: taking the bread from my mouth through taxation, subverting the Constitution I swore to defend, and wrapping the noose of interminable debt around the necks of my children. It’s hard for me not to take umbrage at all that I’m afraid.
But I hope that you find the blog enjoyable and enlightening. So long as you’re here though I would ask that you please patronize my advertisers, to generate revenue for my site. You see, unlike you, I don’t have swarms of armed thugs to take other people’s money for me and I can’t borrow money from the Chinese in my children’s name.
Or maybe I could forgo all that ad revenue stuff and you guys could just hook me up with a big, fat federal grant. Watch how fast I change my tune from “Braley Bites” to “Braley’s Brilliant” then!
