Hey kids! Guess who's back!
That's right! It's über-right-wing blogger, who put The Blog's hometown on the map, Kathleen O'Brein Wilhelm, aka: "The Deer Xing Lady!"
If you are not up to speed on this entertaining lady, take a few minutes to catch up...
... and here.
Go! Enjoy! I'll be here when you get back!
See, I am a Blog of my word.
After those two awesomely crazy pieces of blog-fodder, Ms. O'B W went AWOL.
Not a peep in months.
In that time, Avon Lake Patch editor Lori E. Switaj resigned(?) retired(?) was fired(?)
I don't know. I do know that since her departure, The Patch has lost most of it's local voice, replaced by generic "news" and "sponsored" stories.
*Digression and Full Disclosure*
Many years ago, Ms. Switaj interviewed your Uncle PC about an award nomination he had received for an old school "ink and paper" newspaper, The Avon Lake Press. The PC did a number of interviews with several papers around that time and is here to say that Ms. Switaj's interview was, by far, the best.
*End Digression and Full Disclosure*
The fact is, The Blog has been, for the last few weeks, "this close" to unsubscribing from The Avon Lake Patch.
The only thing that kept me around was the occasional blog post by one Carl Peterson III, under the nom de blog, "A Different Drummer." Carl is not an Avon Lake local. His blog actually originates from a location much closer to The Blog's current Los Angeles home, Northridge, CA.
He is brilliant, BTW... If you are a fan of this blog, you should go check him out.
But, after all these months, there in The Blog's email, the newest edition of The Avon Lake Patch, was a new deer-shit missive from Ms. O'B W.
Oh, my dear Kathleen! (May I call you Kathleen?) I have missed you desperately!
Finally, after all this time! A new post!
I'm so excited that I am all tingly in some of my naughty parts!
And, oh! My darling Kathleen! You did not disappoint!
Your latest rant was so worth the wait.
As always, I hate driving traffic to odious posts like this. But, The Blog is not sure about the copyright legalities of copying and pasting an entire blog post here.
So, go ahead and visit her blog for her latest.
You already know that I will still be here when you get back.
Usually, at this point, The Blog posts excerpts with commentary.
Instead, I will boil it down to the basic theme...
"Evil government, blah, blah, blah...
Communist, Obama, Communism, Communist, blah, blah, blah. yada, communist, Obama, yada, yada."
God! Oh, God! I love me some Kathleen!
I went and done it.
I reread her post and cannot stop myself from excerpting and commenting.
So, here we go...
"Yes, our soldiers--God Bless them--do protect our freedoms; not government."
Because our soldiers don't work for our government? News Flash, Katy! (May I call you Katy?) our soldiers work under their Commander-In-Chief, the president of the United States.
"Obamacare is too scary; worse than the wildest tornado, or ax murderer..."
Seriously? Maybe you should run that theory past the residents of Washington, IL...
...Or Lizzie Borden's parents.
"This government tore apart the greatest health care system in the world that did not need a total fix."
"The greatest healthcare system in the world?" Yes. That is why America ranks number one in infant mortality and #57 in overall healthcare, just above Haiti and Somalia, while the rest of the industrialized world laughs at our asses.
"America, our history is built on the sacrifice of many for the freedom of all."
Sounds pretty Socialist to me.
"This government, and Obama, is against all that America is built; capitalism, the American dream and the right to eat, drink and be free. America must not be a slave to government, or we perish."
As someone who eats badly, drinks too much and, yes, smokes. (Just not in restaurants, bars and public buildings, and I'm okay with that.) What the fuck are you babbling about?
Communist, communism, commie...
The Blog loves him some Kathleen O'Brien Wilhelm, and is glad she is back.
She is, IMHO, the dumbest woman who has never sat on a couch with...
Steve Doocey and the guy who isn't Steve Doocey.
