Just Not Feeling It

Posted: August 16, 2014 by Marner in Blog Administration

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much lately, and there’s a reason: I’m just not feeling it anymore.

I’m having a hard time getting motivated to write about anything when I know it’ll just be the same half-dozen people reading it. The vast majority of the people out there just don’t care. They believe they have no power to change anything, so why bother getting interested in it? I’m not a prolific writer and I have a hard time writing for self-enjoyment.

The other reason I’ve been dropping off is that every thread becomes an opportunity to point and laugh at B4V. I really don’t understand the obsession with them. They are not what anyone would consider thought leaders for the conservative movement and they have no influence outside their own little bubble. Krauthammer, Carlson, Hannity, etc. are worthy of discussion, but Noonan, Cluster, and tired? Who the fuck cares outside of this small group and their small group.

So, that being said, I don’t know when or if I’m going to be posting again. I have more important things to do right now. Football season is starting and I’m going to pretty busy at work for the next 6 months or so. If I find my motivation, I may start writing again at some point in the future.


AllPolyticsNow: Out of Business

I see that Cluster has put up a closed sign at AllPolyticsNow and he’s back commenting at B4V, just like the old days. This was his plan all along, even though he denied it when it was suggested to him.

AllPolyticsNow was born of noble intentions, as a place where there could be a free exchange of ideas from across the political spectrum. But as time went on, Cluster stopped participating. Then earlier this week, he reappeared from his sabbatical to suddenly declare a new day at AllPolyticsNow, unilaterally stripping his collaborators of the ability to post articles there. Hence, this place. Now it appears he’s closed up shop for good and has retreated to the comfortable confines of B4V, where he doesn’t have to mix it up with “the other side.” Just like we predicted he would. Adios, Cluster.

AllPolyticsNow Is Closed
