Are You There, Blogosphere? It's Me, Dan*.

On my way home from work today I noticed that the car in front of me was a pizza delivery vehicle -- and it was covered with Mensa stickers. It quite amused me -- looks like high intelligence doesn't necessarily correlate to career success. That explains our current president, methinks.

Intelligence -- even brilliance -- can be quite a cool thing. It can also suck big, hairy goat balls if you expect too much from it. And from this observance comes the title of my humble blog.

Our country, and our culture, is in the grasp of the control of an ineffective, misguided elite: people with the 'right' education, job history, and connections who seem to think they know better than the rest of us how our lives should be lived and our country governed. For much of our history it has been so and that hasn't been a problem. Now, however, it's become unacceptable and,quite frankly, pretty frikkin' annoying. I have started this blog in an attempt to address these technocratic bastages.

I'm not a great writer, so please forgive me if I sound stupid from time to time. I'd love to write as eloquently as Borepatch, but you're not going to read anything from me referencing both ancient Roman history and the need to vote out our "Representatives" . However, I hope to post thoughts that are occasionally amusing, and perhaps once in a white amusing.

Borepatch (pbuh) is fond of using the phrase "blogfather", so I have appropriated that to describe my relationship with him. If you don't read him on a daily basis you are dead to me.

Oh yeah, commenting: I like comments. Please feel free to post any comments you like. Also please understand that if you're too dickulent I'll have to ban you.

In closing, Obama delenda est.

*yes, I realize that quoting Judy Bloom requires me to surrender my e-peen. Alas, my wife confiscated it a long time ago. At best I can allow the confiscation of the sad, empty area where it once lived.


  1. Welcome to the Blogosphere, Dan!

  2. I have a blog grandson? Cool!

  3. HI Dan, Just stopped over from marooned :)
    Welcome :)

  4. The biggest problem (or at least a rilly-rilly Big one) with the effete-elites is that despite the Right Edu this and the Yob-connexions That, they make decisions based on their own damn stupid emotions - feelings - the one area over which they have never exercised or practiced any control or placed any limits for bear of being "inauthentic" or repressed. WTF? They're driving blind.
    And welcome.

  5. Welcome to the blogosphere! I'll stick up for my possible fellow Mensan for a moment; you may have seen a person driving a pizza truck because of the current occupant in the White House's economic policies.
    Personally, I don't see any above average intelligence displayed by Obama -- no high level practical knowledge, no superior reasoning skills, no tangible acheivements.
    FWIW, my Mensa card is next to my NRA card and my Mensa license plate frame is on an F250 with LaRue Tactical stickers. IOW can't judge a book by the cover :)

  6. But were you lucky enough that your local Mensa chapter wasn't just a place where they bragged about how damn smart they were?
