I started this blog sometime in 2009. At that time, I had just witnessed lame duck President George Bush, Hank Paulson, and Congress literally steal a trillion dollars worth of taxpayer money and deliver it to their banker friends. I was incensed when Paulson told Congress not to worry about who got what. Really. Except for some grumbling- people apparently didn't care. I was amazed.
That's when I started this blog. I had just retired. I had been a cop and I know grand theft when I see it- even when the suspects call it something else.
So I guess I've been writing here for 3 years. Tonight, loyal reader Fredd asks a fair question. Does anyone read this blog? And if they do- why don't they ever comment?
A few commenters have told me that they have attempted to leave comments but were not able to do so. I restructured the commenting box- hoping that I had fixed the problem. That was months ago. When I went to the new flipcard system I went from 250 pageviews to 1500 but I'm not sure the commenting problem was ever really solved. The lack of comments has left me bewildered. Even nasty ones. I used to get more comments when I wrote on a smaller site- most of those were the caustic, anonymous, and chicken shit variety. So...
I would like to ask you for one small favor. If you have read this page, would you please try to leave a comment? Anything, even a letter will work. If that fails, would you please send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org? Maybe describe the problem...I promise not to sell your addy or get in some flame war with you if you are honest and say the site or my writing simply doesn't interest you.
I am going to leave this up for a few days- while I try to decide whether to continue to write here. I want to thank all of you who will take the time to comment or write. I also want to thank Fredd for asking a fair question.
