I am going back to the past, I was going through my post back in 2011 and ran across this one and figured I would repost it...I was looking for my first post 10 years ago and posted this:
This is my first posting on my new blog. I have been inspired by others whose blogs and websites I have been frequenting for years. It is a work in progress so bear with me in my first journey into blogging."
And now 10 Years have passed,
I got into blogging because I was collecting facebook bans...Old NFO's blog, and I had gradually branched out to others and eventually took the plunge
I have blamed Old NFO for foisting me on the blogging world, and through blogging I have met some really good friends, from Mack, both in Meatspace and in the blogworld and his co blogger Pudge, I also have met Aaron and "Murphy" at the NRA conventions, if I hadn't had my blogger credentials, I wouldn't have met Mossad Ayoob I also met the Elusive Lawdog and now count him as one of my friends, and There is nobody like Momma Fargo along with many others. I have wrote a short story through Old NFO and got it published. I have experienced a lot of cool stuff, learned a lot of really neat things and have broadened my horizons that I wouldn't have had if I hadn't taken the plunge and started blogging. My Blog has had over 2.4 million views in the 10 years, over 3000 post (Dang, that is a lot of scribbling) and over 4 000 comments, plus the spam, LOL, I have looked at my early postings and there is a big difference in my writing style, blogging has given me confidence in my ability to write and express my thoughts and organize them in a logical manner. I want to say "Thank you" to everyone that has stopped by over the years for a visit.
Now below is a couple of humorous posts that I pulled off from my first year and I thought they were worthy of repost.
We've all heard about people having Guts or Balls, but do you really know the difference between them?
GUTS - Is arriving home late after a night out with the boys, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the Guts to ask:
'Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?'
BALLS - Is coming home late after a night out with the guys, smelling of perfume and beer, with lipstick on your collar, and having the balls to slap your wife on the butt and say:
'You're next, Chubby.'
Medically, speaking there is 'No' difference in the outcome........
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1. Liberals; and
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girliemen.
Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.
Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines, and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today's lesson in world history: It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above. A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off...
