...he bravely ran away, away, brave brave Sir primate

Speaking of laughs, I saw over on the Middle Road blog where the Writers now recommend the monkey picture blog because he is so ‘brave’. Marconi must have swallowed something bad recently to spew that kind of idiocy. Of all the possible descriptions of the monkey picture blog, bravery falls somewhere near dead last. There may be redeeming value over there, I don’t know, because I don’t ever visit the cowardly scum’s site, but whatever is there is printed out of sheer pitiful cowardice. He bravely hides under a rock so you don’t know what his motivations, connections or affiliation are nor where his self interest really lies. There is a reason for that, and it is not ‘bravery’. It is pure self interest and he fears you will find him out.

In the same sidebar they commend GlenD for his bravely positioned blog comments. That I buy. Why, because Glen holds very strong opinions and does not hesitate to express them. He also has the conviction to stand behind those statements. When he does, I know that I can search his message and analyze it critically based on what I know or can find about his affiliations and motivations. That way I can weigh what he says with reasonable accuracy. When monkey picture spews bile, I just ignore it knowing he probably doesn’t believe most of the crap anyway and has so little regard for its worth that he can’t muster the courage to even stand behind it.

Anonymous blogers keep their identities secret for precisely the same reason Ku Klux Klan members do. They do not want to take personal responsibility for their own actions. They don’t have the courage to back their weasely opinions. Truth is, they don’t really believe most of it. If you knew who most of these anonymous pundits were you would laugh your ass off that they had the balls to say anything at all about that particular subject. The CEO of a passenger rail line lectures you anonymously on the evils of air travel. The career government worker who anonymously tells you all about the world of business. They fear you will find them to be the charlatans they really are.

Cowardice. That is what keeps them anonymous, period. Nonys try to fool you into believing how much they care. Bullshit. They fear far more than they care. I recommend you stay away from the MONKEY PICTURE blog as it may be bad for your mental health. Looks like it may have driven Marconi a little crazy already. (:-))

Bruce is back!

Well, thanks to general lunacy (good nickname for Stanly TLC, eh?)although I'm referring to the general economic malaise on the island and the looming spector of immigration control, whatever the reason, the migration of Mongolians to Saipan has been halted. The last of the ladies should be returning mid april. Bad news for Saipan, but good news for me and the doctor.

Afraid we have run into a king hell roadblock on the mutton rib front. No one sells dry ice here. Matter fact finding ice for a drink is a hit and miss affair, away from the western joints. The layover in Korea, necessitates
dry ice. Excarabating the problem, is the hoof and mouth issue with meat exports from Mongolia. A friend of the doctor is visiting from Saipan and he might be amenable to bring back some canned, otherwise, you are reduced to staking out the carmen safeway.

Nice slam job on your post, by the way.

No Mongolian ladies? What will Body Motion and similar places do for employees? Monkey picture in a g-string as goosebanger over on middle road suggested? Not a pretty sight. Shivers.
Carmen Safeway has some pretty decent lamb from time to time. I'll just have to be at the right place at the right time. I agree, trying to ship it in from OM does not sound likely. Thanks for the thought.

Did the canned mutton brought in by the sister to be forwarded on to Canada ever show up?

Not so much a slam as an expose'. Pontificating bravely from under a rock equates to near zero believability.

Hello Bruce good to see more than just the 'Sour Grapes' glad you are getting some time to write. Thanks for the comments, it's just the way I see things, a different perspective at times, no harm ever ment....
Mini Golf?

Bruce A. Bateman said...

The point is, Glen when you offer an opinion, you own up to it and stand behind it no matter who agrees or disagrees. I applaud that.

The slithering anonymous blogsites, like the one mentioned in this post, offer little but unbelievable slime oozed out before they duck back under cover of their cowardly masks. Not to be believed, not to be taken seriously by critical analysts of current events.
Yep, still putting!
Most of the time I seem to have too many things going on to blog. Maybe I should break out my coal powered laptop and carry it around so I can blog at a moments notice as some do. I would probably get more posts written.

Thanks for commenting, Glen.

That's the best write-up that I've read since the one that I wrote boasting of my Marianas Cup win.

While on the face of it, the LIL blog seems a tad juvenile, possibly silly, you may be underestimating the influence of the satire, tasteless or not. The sheer number of comments and her recently posted statistics do seem to point towards a growing constituency. A phenomenon that is probably not disimilar to that of a talk show blowhard, or loopy shock jock.

It has been interesting to watch the symbiosis between the writer and readers. As distasteful as I find some of the commentary there, I would be less than honest if I didn't admit that it is infectious.

Many of the positions on local matters voiced in the LIL blog are nearly identical to a couple of the other CNMI bloggers that are involved in regular disputes with her. Hard to make heads or tails of that one.

Bruce A. Bateman said...

Yes, anonymous, and you appear to have the same level of maturity as well. Maybe you've been on the Wuv Boat a bit too long.

Bruce A. Bateman said...

Well, Captain, while your insight regarding the monkey's influence is appreciated, I must disagree if it is your intension to suggest that the influence you mention is numerically significant. Monkey’s blog has the same 20 or 30 regular ‘choir’ members as most of the other blogs here. Each with his/her fairly predictable position on current events repeated endlessly. So a lot of comments, half from the blog host and half from the regular gallery, does not indicate a high level of influence to me. The same goes for this or any other local blog.

The childish and obsessive rants you mention are what keep me away. Likewise he/she/it’s inconsistent stance on many issues (and obsessive stance on others) keeps me blissfully away from the monkey poo over there.

Thanks for reading and for your comments.
