Losing a Reader
I'm losing Argie. Argie is a reader of this blog who has threatened to stop reading. He made the statement in the comments of this entry about Dubya's many lies.
Before I ever saw Argie comment over here, I saw him commenting on torontomike.com. I don't know him personally, but his comments are always ultra conservative. In that same thread about Dubya's many lies he actually tries to argue George W. Bush isn't a bad president. Next he'll try and argue that our Toronto Maple Leafs are a great hockey team. Here's the comment he just wrote:
Mike: I was just reading some of your previous posts on Harper and Bush. Boy you’re scary! You’re so Toronto (i.e. left) that I don’t think I can visit your blog anymore. It’s nice to get opinions from both right and left but you seem more Jack Layton than Stephanie Dion. There’s no hope for you unless of course you enlighten yourself and sway a little - actually a lot more - to the right.
I'm not a political blogger, but I write about whatever is on my mind, and occasionally that's political charged. Sure, I've defended same-sex marriage and the decriminalization of certain pot offences, but I don't think that makes me scary. In fact, I'll bet my socially liberal views are shared by the majority of Torontonians. As Argie said, I'm so Toronto.
Argie, let's agree to disagree. You want me to enlighten myself by swaying a lot more to the right and I want you to enlighten yourself by swaying a lot more to the left. I'll miss your visits, but as Popeye said, I am what I am.
