Yesterday I, Lying Lester, published a commentary titled "The Affordable Care Act Stinks". And while, before getting to my thoughts on the issue, I first reaffirmed the fact that this blog is closing (at Octo's request), it does occur to me in retrospect that Octo might object to the content.
I was not sure exactly what it was that he objected to in the first place, but to be certain this last post had some actual content (my thoughts on one of the political issues of the day). It was not me talking about shutting down this blog or praising Octo (all praise that he deserves and which I stand by, for the record).
But the last time I published a post containing political commentary Octo reprimanded me and told me to shut down this blog. At first I did not agree about closing it, but when Octo got that news he just about blew a gasket.
That is when I reconsidered and decided Octo was right and that this blog had to be closed down. So what the hell am I doing still writing posts? I suppose Octo might not find out, as he counseled all his friends and associates to never visit this blog again.
But what if someone does and reports back to him? Frankly that scares me a little. I surely do not want Octo to find out I did anything to question his authority. The consequences could be quite severe. Maybe I should just delete everything and trash can my idea about selling LLIN?
That would be a shame, as I have gotten a few bids so far and it's looking promising that I might recoup what I invested in opening this site. I'm not sure what I should do. Sell it fast, I think, and get back to what I do best... which would be writing for my joke blog, rAtional nAtion uSA.
(RNUSA is a blog, by the way, that I encourage anyone who is desirous of a belly splitting laugh to visit. And it seems to be quite popular with Libertarians and Progressives alike, so if you fall into one of those two categories you'll probably fit right in).
