It Is Time For Me to Go


I want to thank one and all for an entertaining four years. I could say it has lasted far longer than I had planned but in fact, I had not planned it at all. It was a spontaneous decision on a whim.

I will miss it, most of it,  but not all.

I can assure you that I am in good health.

It is obvious to me that the EB has not evolved into what it could have been. No one can take more responsibility for that than me. Perhaps I should have been more restrictive of the comments but I doubt that would have made much of a difference.

I hope you found the EB mostly entertaining and enjoyable. I did.

Good night Melody. Goodnight Trish. Good night All.

Good luck and goodbye.

    Deuce and Whit,

    Sorry to see the old place shut down. It provided me with a great outlet during a bad time. Best to both of you in the future.

    Melody, happy birthday in advance. Looks like we won't be making any of those midnight rendevous. But this is bigger than both of us, and we will always have Capricorn.

    Ruf, happy birthday to you too. I may have to follow you over to The Oil Drum just to irritate you but it won't be the same.

    Trish, I hope you find what you are looking for. Good luck.

    Best wishes to everyone else.

    I will miss most all of you.....all you good people.

    Like a family I don't have.....even if I'm the wayward son.

    Quirk, I lost your e-mail....could you send it to me?

    What will I do without Rufus?

    OOOO.....

  6. Blogger Rufus II said...

    "We're not interested in what a Canadian has to say about this one Ash."




    Aye typical American 'head in the sand' attitude. Ironically I'm a full blooded American - born in the USA with born in the USA parents. I still carry a USA Passport, can, and do, vote in the USA, but, I choose to live in Canada. Heck, I even have to file US tax returns.

    I used to hear bullshit like that Rufus when I opposed the Iraq adventure - more ironies given the shift in opinion of many of the patrons here.

    As to shutting this place down - I hope not. It could be run with significantly less work from Deuce. What I like about the place is the varied cast of characters and the fact that it isn't a very large cast. If things get too big, too popular, there is just too much stuff going on, too many comments, just too much. Heck, if you want a site to to continue to chat you can go to ashrants.com but I'd rather y'all stay here.

    Loughner is associated with a group called American Renaissance. They are not just anti-government but are specifically opposed to the Zionist Occupation Government.

    Rep Giffords is Jewish.

    Case closed. The guy has more in common with Al Fatah and Hezbolah and nothing to do with American Conservatism.

    However Gifford’s father has blamed the Tea Party for the shooting. I guess he does not want a crisis to go to waste.

  11. Good morning all.

    Ambivalence might best express my feelings.

    It all started out as great fun, a lark, a poke in the eye of another consequential blog gone to seed.

    Hopes were high. The talent and latent intelligence were stellar.

    I will miss almost everyone, despite being persona non grata.

    Deuce, you have a gift. In time I hope you use it again - perhaps with a more mature appreciative cast of characters (sadly, including me).

    Best to all and "Be well".

  15. My father talked about everyone here as if he actually knew you so your closing down is a surprise. I wish you well.

    Quirk: Once again I want to thank you for your kind comments about my father.

    I was going to comment today anyway. A couple of people emailed me to ask that my father's site be re-opened for a while so that they could review some of the material. I have done so.

    I want to emphasise that the blog is not re-opening. I don't mind answering a few questions but I simply don't have the time (or the talent) to run a blog.

    Best wishes to you all.

  23. I was joking about the exit speech. I guess you weren't. I never really fit in but I made the most of my time here and for the most part it was my pleasure.

    Deuce and Whit, you have shown nothing but respect for me and I want to thank you for that. I hope you're making the right decision. I'm sure you are as the decision probably wasn't as spontaneous as the decision it was to open this place. If this is truly you last I want to wish you luck and commend you on all the hard work you put into running this place.

    Ain't no end...

    Admit it Melody, you never did hear that word Pleroma until ol'

  32. Let us quit with the very best --

    I believe in you my soul, the other I am must not abase itself to
    you,
    And you must not be abased to the other.

    Loafe with me on the grass, loose the stop from your throat,
    Not words, not music or rhyme I want, not custom or lecture, not
    even the best,
    Only the lull I like, the hum of your valved voice.

    I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer morning,
    How you settled your head athwart my hips and gently turn'd over
    upon me,
    And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone, and plunged your tongue
    to my bare-stript heart,
    And reach'd till you felt my beard, and reach'd till you held my
    feet.

    Swiftly arose and spread around me the peace and knowledge that pass
    all the argument of the earth,
    And I know that the hand of God is the promise of my own,
    And I know that the spirit of God is the brother of my own,
    And that all the men ever born are also my brothers, and the women
    my sisters and lovers,
    And that a kelson of the creation is love,
    And limitless are leaves stiff or drooping in the fields,
    And brown ants in the little wells beneath them,
    And mossy scabs of the worm fence, heap'd stones, elder, mullein and
    poke-weed.


    The very best --

    the hum of your valved voice.

    Whitman and Twain, they are AMERICA!

    The shooting of the congresswoman and the people around her in AZ was a tragedy. However, does it call for Boehner to shut down the House for a week to 'reflect' on it?

    If reflecting on this shooting results in all parties toning down the rhetoric and taking a more civil approach, all the better. But with the problems we have in this country, shouldn't Congress be doing it's job?

    On This Week Christiane Amenpour and George Stephanopolous tried their damnest to convince everyone that the shooting was the result of the heated rhetoric in this country. They were disappointed when George Will said in country of 308 million you are going to have some 'whack-jobs' and it looks like this was one of them.

    Christiane was obviously upset when Dick Armey told her she should be looking to psychology not sociology for the answers here.

    Oh yea, Donna Brazile presented the liberal case by calling for more security.

    It's a great country we live in.

    No, that has never occurred to me. But it has occurred to me that you may have used a male moniker here in the past.

  110. So that no one has to go cold turkey, I've scheduled posts to go up automatically every morning at 6:00 for the next few days. The first post will have content. Tuesday on will simply provide a fresh thread. We'll keep the bar open 'til we run out of food and spirits.

  112. From Wiki:

    Etymology

    Main article: Names of Vietnam
    Việt Nam (Vietnamese pronunciation: [vjə̀tnam]) was adopted as the official name of the country by Emperor Gia Long in 1804.[12] It is a variation of "Nam Việt" (南越, Southern Việt), a name used in ancient times.[12] In 1839, Emperor Minh Mạng renamed the country Đại Nam ("Great South").[13] In 1945, the nation's official name was changed back to "Vietnam". The name is also sometimes rendered as "Viet Nam" in English.[14]

  113. Great News, Whit. Maybe we can figure something out. Bob (Hunter Thompson) had it right earlier - This place might be too weird to live, but, dammit, it might be to Special to Die.

  115. I admit to being all the things I am accused of being, but thank the Lord I ain't Quirk.

    Jesus, what a fate.

    And I admit to not understanding women at all, the most mysterious things in the whole universe.

    I also affirm that "The Exstasie" is the best poem of love ever written.

    Which should be taken seriously, and not as idealism, as dumb shit Quirk says, a sixty year old acting out as sixteen, forever.

    But that's what you get, living in motor city. The loosening and degradatioh of all things noble and true.

    You get the drift of the stars, fate, muzzieness, rather than destiny, the struggle with G-D, like the Jews.

    So there!!!!!

  117. Our Quirker got high on dope, and laughed with his girl friend for three or four hours, about some poor kids, in iron lungs, in Deetroit.

    That says it all, to me.

    Death will be good to you Quirk, and to all of us.

  121. I do not understand women.

    What seens to me so simple seems to them so goddamn complex in their minds, that I swoon.

  123. "I voted today, and frankly, I voted for unity," said Aldod Akon Deng, 65, who is originally from the south. "I am here since 1964.

    About 3.9 million people registered to vote. A simple majority must vote for separation for the referendum to pass, but 60 percent of registered voters must cast ballots for the vote to be valid.

    Results will trickle in after polls close Saturday, but results won't be finalized until February.

    Still venting Bob?

    There were no children mentioned or involved in the story you're recalling. Once again, you take a few bits of info and construct your own "Bob's World" view of it. Most often, as in the case with Mel scope photo, it is 180 degrees from the truth.

    You admit you've screwed up. But then you continue to do it again. You say your sorry but it makes no difference. Hearing someone repeatedly say they're sorry eventually gets old.

    Someone said, being sorry is the highest act of selfishness, seeing value only after discarding it.

    Rant on Bobbo.

  128. How is it Quirk that I find you totally disgusting one minute and laughable and enjoyable the next?

    I don't know.

    You are an older man, like me. Perhaps it is time to strain our necks upwards, towards the stars.

    Melody is a middle aged woman with domestic duties, and time on her hands. A taker of wonderful photos (someone back there has true talent with a camera) many on the sexual side, she is a very wonderful wonman, I love when she talks of her grand daughter, such talk warms my heart more than all the porn in the world - that's what I like - a good kitchen scene, with just a hint of sexuality - not this flaunting of buns, whose buns I know not - this flaunting of buns on the internet.

    Like Deuce said - beauty is everywhere where you find it.

  129. Laughing about kids in iron lungs -

    Christ, after what I have seen with my wife -

    you are disgusting

    And remembering that in your old age
    too


    You are really really WEIRD Quirk

    and totally disgusting


    harharhar - kids in iron lungs - har har har- something to laugh about in my old age - har har har

    You are NUTS Quirk

  130. .

    And so you continue.

    Once again, you spin things from your imagination. There were no children involved. Some older people and a tour of the leaves turning in upper Michigan.

    More, you forget the point of the story. The fact that when sober I recognized that laughing at such was wrong, but that under drugs the extraordinary can seem bizaare and funny.

    You bring this up as an excuse to mitigate your current behavior. You accuse me of being juvenile. True enough. Maybe I need to grow up (not likely to happen). But it is usually harmless, and if I see that I have offended I will usually cease, apologize, and back off.

    You on the other hand, after being politely told to back off on numerous occasions, have continued this weird call for an 'ass-off' between daughters for the better part of two weeks.

    You have said you've had a bad week and I suspect there are things you’re not telling. For that I am sorry, but it is still no excuse for continuing your silly ranting.
