For The Last Time...and Rockstar INXS

Look, I welcome everyone's opinions here. Right, left, or somewhere in the middle. In fact, some of my favorite blog friends are right wing freaks. And I love them, even though I generally disagree with them. They stick to the topic I am discussing, they keep it brief, and they don't hijack my space to make their own points. And I have the same courtesy for them and their space.

So on that note.

To all of you Anonymouses out there: STOP USING UP ALL OF MY COMMENT SPACE TO MAKE YOUR FEEBLE LITTLE POINT. IF YOU HAVE THAT MUCH TO SAY, GET YOUR OWN DAMN BLOG. And don't say that you "have better things to do, like work" which is the excuse I always get when I ask why you anonymouses don't get your own blogs so you can spout your moronic bs whenever you want. For the time it took you to write 10 paragraphs in my comments, you could have taken the 2 minutes it takes to set up a blogger account.

I was not at all partisan in my questioning of why nothing was done to prevent this disaster and why the response was so slow. I blame everyone in the federal and Lousiana state government along with the New Orleans local government. Regardless of their political party. I am generally pretty anti-Bush around here, but I have not said anything on here about Bush and his handling of this crisis (except to joke that he should have let them use his plane to save people instead of taking time out of his busy riding-bikes-with-Lance schedule to tour the disaster. And that was funny.).

So why exactly do you freaks come to my blog and, I guess because you see that I link to moveon.org, make comments about Hillary and Bill Clinton's handling of some other disaster or about the NY Times and what they said about the levees years ago? You are totally off topic.

Here is my deal: I am a fan of New Orleans. It is my favorite place on this planet. I have been there countless times for Mardi Gras, for St. Patrick's Days, and other times just for the fun of it. I want it to be there, and its not. Its not there because SOME PEOPLE didn't use the funds they were supposed to use to fix the levees, or because SOME PEOPLE voted against using funds for that, or because SOME PEOPLE think poor people aren't important enough to protect, or some other reason. I don't really know what the reason is, and I don't know who those SOME PEOPLE are. I don't know if they are on "my side" or "your side" and I don't care whose side they are on. I want them punished for not doing their job of protecting Americans. And I am also ranting about the fact that it took so long to get help to people while they were starving and dehydrating and dying. Especially since SOME PEOPLE, whoever they may be, knew it was coming and didn't prepare, and after it happened they didn't act.

This is a NON-PARTISAN topic for me. I want the heads of whoever is to blame, Republican or Democrat. Yep, you guessed it, I think Republicans are more to blame because since 9/11, which happened right in my backyard, we were supposed to be upgrading our responses to emergencies. And our response to this emergency SUCKED. And guess what, when you are the President...the buck should stop there. I know, I know, its a real bummer to have to cut your vacation short. But as the President, its the least you could have done. Oh no, wait, *what you actually did* was the least you could have done. I stand corrected.

Ok, I am getting mad and ranting again, and I am getting off topic. My point is this, and I don't think I can make it more clear: This is my blog. Yes, it is public and I am sharing my opinions online and blah blah blah. But guess what. I don't care. You can disagree with me and I have no problem with that. You can ask my many satisfied right-wing customers. But don't hijack my space for your own ends. If you have that much to say and feel so strongly about it, GET YOUR OWN BLOG. From now on, I will be deleting long and blathering comments for the sole reason that I am sick of scrolling past them trying to get to the comments I really want to read. And I am not defending myself on it anymore. Here is my defense - my blog, my decision.
-----------
I knew Jordis was going home tonight. She had just lost it over the last few weeks. You could see her confidence shrinking week after week. I have no doubt that she will be a big star, and I know that losing this competition was the best thing for her because she is too good for INXS. Her voice is absolutely amazing and I can't wait till her solo CD comes out some day soon. Please, dear God, let JD be next. I am so sick of him. I am digging Marty more and more, and Mig is looking more and more odd to me. Suzie has improved like mad over the past few weeks, and I think she has a shot. So, sayonara, Jordis, we will definitely be seeing you around soon.
-----------
Tomorrow - a return of the happier, more uplifting True! (Wait, have I ever been happy and uplifting? Ah, well, I will be back tomorrow anyway, happy or not.)

I wanted to be the first to send you an official welcome to the shitty blogs club.

Keep up the good work.

Bumbling Bav said...

Could I use your shit kicking boots, I got a teacher to take on!

Patsy Darling said...

My Tivo is out of control it recorded all of Rockstar Inxs up until when they announced who was voted off, I figure you might have ranted about it good thing there was no way I would have been able to sleep tonight not knowing.

Last Girl On Earth said...

You go girl. I back you 100%! This IS your blog, and I love it here! You do and say and delete whatever the hell you want to!

Ally said...

Yes, what Last Girl On Earth said. AND, I don't think you CAN be 'off topic' if it's your own blog, you can rant about what you like!

Toryssa said...

Your blog indeed. And just for the record, you have every right to be pissed off. This is major huge horrible... just really fucking bad. And if people don't have the sense to question and be angry, then really... sod off.

HighMaintenanceHussy said...

Anonymous people are cowards.

Over here there has been a whole lot of publicity about how Bush gave a speech which included something to the effect of, "the good news is that we'll have a beautiful gulf coast." Once again, as an American abroad, I had to hang my head in shame. I'm so sick of people asking me how we could've elected him for a second term.

You keep up being the sassy, smart and lovely person we know you to be. :D

MommaK said...

You go girl! And if all else fails just change your settings to not allow anonymous comments. Its your space and they have already taken up too much of it. WE love you just the way you are:) *hugs*

Kathleen said...

You go, girl! LOVED the rant!!! You say what I think but it all gets too caught up in my brain to write.

trine said...

you know what True, I think I like angry-true!
it is good to be angry now adn again and good to shout - especialyl when poeple don't respect you. Good for you!!

i am terrible for not sayign what i feel and it is NOT A GOOD THING. So you GO!

:-)

Michelle said...

You should say whatever you feel like here, it's your zone and nobody elses. I totally agree with you about all the contestants on Rockstar INXS. I have come to a point though where I hope JD wins the whole thing. I can't stand him and he deserves to be stuck with INXS. I would hate to see Marty or Suzie or even Mig waste themselves.

Tay said...

Go Suzie Go!

JM said...

Well put...rant all you want to!

Molly said...

Yes indeed. It is YOUR blog, your freedom to rant, stupid anonymous commenters who have nothing nice to say.

I thought of you when Jordis got sent home last night, but I have to agree that INXS was not a good fit for her. She will have more success on her own, so it wasn't such a bad thing and now she has the exposure...

jlybn123 said...

Hey, as others have said, this IS YOUR BLOG, and that gives you the freedom and the right to do what you want with it!!!!

Isn't that the whole point of blogging????

thephoenixnyc said...

RA!!!! Well said milday!

Peanutt said...

Blog on sister!
Funny how when you actually speak to the anons their comments are nowhere to be found today, are they?????

Holly said...

That was well said True! Anonymous commenters are cowards.

If they have such strong feelings which they want to have heard, I agree... let them get their own blog, and let them post comments associated with it.

Do they actually think they are going to sway people over to their line of thinking with these long winded comments that most of us lose interest in 2-3 sentences in?

Guppyman said...

Even though I think you are a raving lunatic that leans way too far in the wrong direction politically... I still support you chooping A. Nonymous off at the knees for their useless overblown ranting.... This is your space to use how you want....

Anyway- I am avoiding the politics of the situation, so I'll move on to INXS.... I have become JD's biggest supporter. I hope he wins the entire thing. I want him to be the front man for INXS!

Think I'm nuts? That's ok.... If he wins, then I only have to avoid one band on the radio.... Just have to turn the station quickly when I hear INXS.... But you know every one of the folks who are left will get some kind of recording deal... Then I'd have to turn off both INXS and JD songs.... that'd really suck!

The only other one I would want to get stuck with the geezers is Mig... I can't see liking his music very much either after this show.....


Was that too long of a comment?

;)

Danielle said...

i am addicted to rock star inxs and i knew jordis was going hoe too, shelost her passion, i hate jd's ass he needs to go next i want susie or marty to win, i really think they are most talented and like their personalities the most also

Miss_Vicki said...

I'm not going to get into politics here, instead I send good thoughts and prayers to everyone who needs it and has been affected - women, men, children, animals. All of them.

I was so pissed - I DVR'd the results show last night and I went to watch it and it only recorded the first 30 minutes!!! I was freaking out!!! So I didn't find out who went home until I checked the site this morning. I think Jordis is great, she's just not the right singer for INXS is all, she'll do great. I think Mig is probably next, and it'll be JD Suzie and Marty in the end. I couldn't even begin to preduct who'd win, it could be any of those three.

Daisy Mae said...

What is up with these anonomus posters lately? Everyone seems to be getting "on my soapbox" comments from anonomous people who are too whimpy to come out of hiding and leave their email addy or anything like that. A bunch of whimpy turds.

Mamacita said...

Yours is one of the best rants I've seen yet on this subject.

And I agree with 'most everything else everybody who got here before me said.

But I can't resist an opportunity to state once again how much I absolutely hate anonymous commenters. Cowardly assholes, every single one of them.

I don't buy the "I don't have a blog and my email is private" crap either. Not a good excuse, not in this day and age. Wimp Wimp Wimp.

No contact information = shut the hell up. Period.

Oh, I'm in a mood today. . . .

mary said...

True, you are so, well, TRUE! :)
I agree with all that you said about your blog and anonymous posters.

I also agree with every observation and thought you shared about the INXS show. I feel the exact same way about J.D. right now. Hubby and I are really pulling for Marty now. He's got the best all-around talent and charisma for the band, we think. That said, I'll be first in line to get Jordis' and Suzie's cds when they come out. I love those girls' voices. Mig = odd. Yes!

InterstellarLass said...

TRUE Dat! I love the way you tell people off! You're sooo good at it! Rock on wit cha bad self sista!

Raehan said...

I want to be like you when I grow up.

Cori said...

Can I borrow your balls of steel? I promise to give them back after I stand up to just a couple...ok, hundred(!) people. Pleeeeze!

Evey said...

Great post true, lets hope that this will be the end of NOVELS that none of us care to read. Good on you for telling them how it is!

I am sorry to say I never got into Rockstar...perhaps I should have then I would have something intelligent to say! lol

Charlie Mc said...

they are cowards those anyonymous fuckers!

LisaBinDaCity said...

You go Jersey Girl! After having my fair share of shitty anonymous comments I'm also of the school of my blog, my rules.

pia said...

welcome to the club! Was thinking about putting a post together of truly sick comments I have gotten but then they would come back and comment about how dare I showcase the comments that they made, so....

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

well, if you're not happy and uplifting, then i can honestly say i always feel like i am once i've left here

maxandzoesmom said...

you rock as hard as jordis does!

she did't need to be hanging out with those old farts anyway.

jd is a freakasaurus rex.

Michael Manning said...

Go Jersey Girl! I have you linked!!

Kym said...

This is one of the best posts I have read on a blog! You hit every swinging jerk on the head! Thank you for saying it perfectly!
