“Inspired” by the wreckage that the unelected Bush regime was doing to the United States of America, I began to blog in the fall of 2002. I began a Salon Blog titled Robert’s Virtual Soapbox. Shortly thereafter, the unelected Bush regime launched its illegal, immoral, unprovoked and unjust Vietraq War. That sure kept me blogging.

Then the 2004 presidential race really got us bloggers going (I supported John Kerry from the get-go, I’m a little embarrassed to say now, although I still believe that Kerry did better against BushCheneyCorp than Howard Dean would have*).

What am I going to blog about when and if the nation ever returns to normal, once it returns to the state it was in before it was hijacked by the election-stealing, bogus-war-launching, war-profiteering Bush Repugnicans?

Well, there’s plenty about President Barack Obama that I’m not happy about, and I’m a Green Party member at heart. I’m sure that I’ll think of something.

*Before I get hate e-mail from Deaniacs, I credit the Dean campaign with creating an organization and a political enthusiasm that appears about to put Barack Obama into the White House.

    I’ve been one of your readers for many years now and wanted to share your site with my facebook friends. So I started a Robert’s Virtual Soapbox group. I hope you don’t mind. I’ve enjoyed reading your stuff and wanted to share it with other baby boomers whom you have special regard for.

    Weird. Just recently I wonder how many people out there have been reading me for a long time but I don’t even know of their existence because they’ve never left a comment or contacted me…

    Anyway, no, I don’t mind that you’ve started a Facebook group in my honor, although of course I encourage anyone who wants to comment on any of my pieces to leave comments directly on those blog pieces.

    The Libya thing — just tell me that you’re not working for al-Qaeda or something. Hee. Hee. Hee…

      Nice to meet you. Yes I suppose I’ve been reading your blog for about six years or more maybe, can’t remember. I never tried to say hello but thought to let others know of the enjoyment I’ve found reading your opinions from time to time. Sometimes when I get so pissed off, reading you calms me down and sometimes even makes me smile.

      I teach Basic and Business English to young people who work for several banks here in Libya. They are given free lessons for a year or more paid for by the bank which they work for. I’m actually employed by Berlitz in Manchester, UK.

      Glad to make contact.

      Glad to hear it! It’s kind of weird to think of the people out there who read my stuff and I don’t even know it… But I’m happy that apparently there are many out there who like my rantings and ravings.
