I am sorry I haven’t posted or approved — or read — comments for a few days. I had to dig out of about six inches of snow on Wednesday and take my father for a routine medical appointment and do errands. Then I stayed up most of the night watching over him because there was a chance he would need my assistance. And then I spent Thursday and Friday preparing for the blizzard that is blanketing the mid-Atlantic region in snow.
Also, I wanted to be less enraged with Gay Patriot West, aka Daniel Blatt, and have several hours clear in order to write the sequence of posts I need to write in order to explain my position and then approve and answer comments. I may not have that block of time for a few more days due to the blizzard. The snow looks like it is going to break the record at Thurgood Marshall-BWI airport of 28.2 inches that was set in 2003.
I’m going to be spending the rest of the daylight hours clearing the snow on our walkway and driveway. It looks like it’s at least 30 inches in spots and it’s wet at the bottom. The night temperatures for the next several days will be in the teens, so that slush will turn to ice if I don’t get it cleared. And I just got a robo-call from the county saying we could get up to eight inches more snow before the storm ends. If you want to pray for us, I welcome that. Please God let the electricity stay on — we both sleep with respirators for obstructive sleep apnea — and let the roof hold.
I did see a comment in my comment queue from Daniel calling me passive-aggressive for declaring war on him publicly without trying to persuade him behind-the-scenes to change his ways. No, no, no! I am 100 percent aggressive! I’ve already punksmacked him a few times over the course of the last year and seen no sign of improvement. Daniel has made Gay Patriot the safest place on the Internet to get your gay-hate on, and he regularly pronounces his benedictions over hatred toward gays. No one in the conservative blogosphere has to denounce homosexuals — all they have to do is wait a few minutes for Daniel’s post or column and then link it. The way I see it, Daniel is doing more than practically anyone else to destroy any chance homosexuals have of equality in America — and I consider that a form of genocide, even if it is a very slow-motion one and if it’s not affecting you then you will find that word much too extreme. I saw no reason to believe that back-channel communications with Daniel would alter his attitude or behavior. So I decided to make an example of him.
