Wow. Jeff MacMillan, determined to talk sense into us poor saps, attacks me for not posting yesterday or today regarding Saddam’s capture. Sorry to disappoint, Jeff. Didn’t know my opinion meant that much to you.
Since you asked, I spent yesterday (in between hating my country, of course), taking my 3 year-old to see Brother Bear at the movie theater and cleaning the house in anticipation of my in-laws coming to visit for the holidays. (Hating your country is so much easier when the house is clean, you know.)
And today, I woke up early, hated my country, then boarded a 7am flight to Detroit where, in between hating my country and all it represents, I met with several of my customers and discussed their upgrade plans with regards to my company’s software. (If you’re interested in what I do for a living — though hating America is its own full-time job, it doesn’t pay the bills — feel free to read today’s InfoWorld for an idea of what I do.)
My flight was delayed — surely a plot by the evil administration running our evil nation — and I returned to my house around 9:30pm. I’m tired, but figure I can get another two hours or so of good old-fashioned country-hating in if I put my mind to it.
Jeff, you’re more than welcome to post here. And as many of my staunchly Republican friends and family members will tell you, I absolutely adore a spirited debate when we put our cards down, argue issues, and change each other’s point of view. But when you descend to accusing me of hating my country, or of being hypocritical, then I’ve lost interest in chatting. Not because your comments are getting to me but because you clearly have no interest in debating but simply insulting me.
Good luck to you. I’ll post some thoughts on Saddam’s capture shortly, just as soon as I get in some good ol’ country-hatin’…
