Over the past few months I have spent quite a bit of time on Substack. Although I have been blocked by Clint Watts and Design Mom Gabrielle Blair, (who believes those of us who voted for Trump committed a sin and are in need of repentance) most of those substack writers who have allowed my comments have not felt the need to silence my voice and block me from further participation.
I was recently blocked from GOMI and long term readers know multiple attempts to share my work on all social media has been consistently blocked, banned, and deleted for a variety of bogus reasons.
During the early years of my participation on the web I was blocked, banned, and shut out from almost all online forums because I was a vocal neocon who supported the middle east wars, yet I promoted a progressive attachment parenting lifestyle for families.
Because of this seeming disconnect, most moderators called me a troll and blocked me from participating on sites like the Mothering magazine chatroom and Free Republic when all I was doing was sharing my heartfelt views on things.
I do admit to enjoying baiting readers with my words, memes, and movies, all crafted in the name of entertaining good fun. I delight in exposing deep hypocrisies and extreme hyperbole on both political extremes. And I have reserved my most devastating efforts for a certain blogging obstretrician who shall not be named.
Here is a roundup of my favorite Stack writers from the past week, shared for your perusal and edification!
First up David Reaboi (who has some sweet jazz attached to this post…)
I said this in the comment section:
Thanks for such a thoughtful and insightful post. I agree with most of it and comfortably part company with most Trump supporters who now believe the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were a waste.
I parse it a bit differently though. I believe if we went in to help those nations set up constitutional republics with democratically elected politicians, I am comfortable with that.
But if we went in so Monsanto could take agriculture over from fifty million more people, then, no. I do not support that.
I read that farmers using traditional agricultural methods were locked up as terrorists when they refused to use Monsantos seeds.
This type of intervention is what the left has correctly been hollaring about for a hundred years as the Wars have played out.

This report at Real Clear Investigations is a MUST READ!
I left this comment on Jared Holt’s Substack last night:
The right wing people in this country are getting ready for a complete shutdown of the government and possibly an economic collapse around a default on the national debt at the end of the month.
We are stockpiling food, water, and other survival supplies. And we are ready to live comfortably until the day after whatever happens. I know you are prolly too young to understand what hyper inflation looks like in real life, but it ain't gonna be pretty. As a long term political activist, nobody I know is planning to attend any national event.
We are done with them. All signs are pointing to an economic collapse.
