Pimp your blog!


And now, an increasingly-regular feature here at CC HQ, for when I am too damned lazy or busy to, you know, blog -- pimp your blog. The restrictions: Canadian, progressive, and in desperate need of additional traffic. Take it away.

I wouldn't normally, but it's my birthday tomorrow.

Sometimes I write about politics ('cause I'm a politician, dontcha know). Most of the time I write about nerdy web applications and, well, myself.

Here. Y'all stop by and wish me a happy 28th birthday*.

* HOLY GOD JUST YESTERDAY I WAS 24. HONEST.

I've pimped my blog before here, but I still qualify, and I'm kind of a slut.

Been doing some blogging for the All Spin Zone as well as my own livejournal. I thought I might branch out a bit from 'play' blogging on livejournal because there's so much stupid and so few hammers.

"Sheena ain't no progressive"

words and their meanings, like everything else, evolve with time (wingnuttery notwithstanding).

the only thing more pathetic than the obtuse are the willfully obtuse.

Sheena's a libertarian Kevron (what kind of name is that anyway?). As such, she doesn't see herself as a progressive. That is, she's a rabid capitalist who thinks the so-called progressives are too prone to legislating morality. Libertarianism is the new black so you should read up on it. I'm a progressive but I tend to agree that progressives with time on their hands tend to legislate morality. My blog is here:The Internationalist. It's mostly self-indulgent navel gazing with some liberal perspectives.

KEvron said...

"(what kind of name is that anyway?)"

which? "sheena", "libertarian" or "KEvron"?

"As such, she doesn't see herself as a progressive."

nor do i (i prefer "liberal"), but i don't pretend that i don't understand terms like "progressive", "libertarian" and "fuckhead".

"Libertarianism is the new black so you should read up on it."

i'm well versed, having known more than a few in my lifetime. i think of them more as "the new anarchist". perhaps they should read up on the notion that from chaos comes order, despite best efforts (and maybe read up on the other notion, "the devil you know").

"progressives with time on their hands tend to legislate morality."

Is the above a statement from a visitor from another planet? It has been my experience that conservatives of all stripes, Taliban, American Taliban or evangelic X-tians and the Roman Catholic Church, to name just three, seem MOST interested in what everybody else is doing and therefore imposing moral strictures on others.

Generally, true progressives think morals are a personal issue and only feel society should be involved when a person's behaviour effects other people excepting consenting adults.

Libertarianism is very big on individual freedoms (except abortion or homosexuality) and the magical hand of the "free market" which can sort out all the irrelevant crap. Libertarians tend to not agree with interventionist foreign policy, but also tend to not believe in evolutionary theory. They are a funny flock of ducks and Congressman Ron Paul is a classic example of a Libertarian.

By the way pimpin' my joint it is:

House of Infamy about the only legislative assembly in the Western world to have a search warrant executed on it by the RCMP. The almost five years since have been an ongoing exercise in trying to bury the documents and other information siezed that black day in December 2003.

So you're calling her a progressive, a libertarian or a fuckhead? And you're doing it because you think progressive is straightforward? That's very funny. I agree with her, libertarianism is a strange bird: pro-gay, pro-choice, pro-capitalism, not so easy to pigeonhole. A lot of libertarians think of themselves as progressive. They're wrong, but they do (social progress is of a piece with economic progress). You and Sheena should kiss and make up though. She's a good egg.

The Internationalist said...

That is, IMHO, libertarians are wrong *because* social progress is of a piece with economic progress, you can't have one without the other.

KEvron said...

"And you're doing it because you think progressive is straightforward? That's very funny."

if you say so. i surely didn't.

Ah, but you are calling her pathetic and obtuse aren't you?
