Onward, Caffeine Soldiers!

This is not a blogger's blog, this is a commenter's blog.
Here's to all brave commenters who really fight the battles of the blogosphere - you're my cup of coffee!
I raise my mug to salute you!

A hard day's night

It's been an interesting discussion at FDL - http://www.firedoglake.com/2006/07/18/every-bomb-makes-hezbollah-stronger/#comments

Starting with a great post by Steve Giliard, imho one of the best informed and most thoughtful liberal bloggers. And, sadly, one of the much-too-few afro american ones. He's running a great site, especially if you're interested in history. Check it out!

One note to Jane and Christy at FDL: Closing a thread when it is still hosting a civil discussion is a total no-no imho. This smells like censorship and control freaks. Pls think twice about this policy!

Ok, back to the discussion - the forces of good won! By saying this, I don't want to deminish the few right wing guys who had enough guts to take part in a discussion at a liberal site. They are much better than those simple minded followers who are only capable of blogobating at 'save' right wing sites like Powerline, Protein Wisdom, the Freep and others. But, truth is, it is almost impossible to defend Israel's current actions. So, they were fighting for a lost cause. However, the discussion clarified many points that may have been unclear for some, so let's hope that some lurkers did learn something.

OK, a general point now. I don't know yet if my moods will make it possible, but my idea is to establish this site as a meeting point for liberal commenters. A site to exchange experiences, to release the steam because some blogger simply didn't get it, and to direct others to interesting discussions or a thread that desperately needs more liberal firepower. Just because I'm sometimes annoyed at arrogant bloggers who think they are selfmade men and who disregard the armies fighting for them.

Hooray for the commenters! Here's to us!

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his thoughts with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This blog shall gentle his condition.

LMAO. Go through Steve's archives and you will be LYFAO at all the BS. The poor guy is right about 50% of the time. You know, like flipping a coin? The guy is clueless, if not entertaining. Good night.
