This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Duly Noted As A Swipe From Riehl World View


This is something that needs to be spread far and wide. As I was reading the zillion of blogs Snooper visits, I found this one at Riehl World View.

TNR: There Goes That Rationalization

Unless I missed it, TNR seems to have gone dark on the Beauchamp affair, again. In any event, I watched Band of Bloggers on the History Channel tonight - they have a website here

The History Channel wants to capture what it's really like to be a soldier. We're launching a new website showcasing first person experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan and all other American wars.

and then I remembered reading this once at TNR.

Over the course of the war, we have tried to provide our readers with a sense of Iraq as it is seen by the troops. Usually, these stories have been written by journalists who have traveled to Iraq and interviewed soldiers there, but last January Beauchamp sent us a first-person vignette that seemed a powerful contribution to the genre.

There are any number of milblogs at milblogging dot com, the History Channel had any number of blog excerpts in their segment and many of the bloggers on film, in interviews and on the ground in Iraq. And the best TNR could do was the husband of a staffer with a fabulist streak?

Lastly, did they ever once link to one of the popularly read milbogs in their quest to provide ... readers with a sense of Iraq as it is seen by the troops, particularly since the Beachamp affair? Or have they given up on that mission, as well? Hmm.

Exactly so...
