It Has Been a Pleasure
It Has Been a Pleasure.
I have run the Republican Party Animals for almost five years. During that time, I have not only proven that there is a big audience, even in a lefty town like L.A., for large-scale conservative live events, but, through my blog posts, I have been able to make a genuine difference in the never-ending fight against liberal mushy-headedness.
In the past month alone, I got the U.S. Department of Defense to drop two asinine, taxpayer-funded programs: the “Power and Privilege” military indoctrination program, and the “use humor against your rapist” training video for “non-violent intervention.” After I exposed both programs, the DoD eliminated them. Over the past five years, I have had the pleasure of scoring many such small but important victories.
And I was looking forward to scoring many more. Sadly, an exceptionally vindictive young lady has taken it upon herself to destroy in one minute what it took me five years to build. It was an assassination, to be sure, but at least it’s the kind of assassination you walk away from, and that’s something to be thankful for.
As the movie says, “We may be through with the past, but the past isn’t through with us.”
The news of the passing of the great Richie Havens brought this song to mind. It’s always been my favorite version of this particular classic, and it speaks volumes to me right now, and not for the first time in my life.
