Someone with the moniker Smithhere didn't like my news on the Martha's Vineyard charter flight of illegals.
You left out the part where the local residents had no advanced notice ( but Faux News was waiting), yet they housed and fed the immigrants. Only then were they moved to Joint Base Cape Cod which has a village that is usually reserved to house military families, but has also housed Katrina refugees. But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good story. Ok, go ahead and publicly attack me on your site now
I replied (then changed my mind about leaving it in the comments section, because after all, the idiot asked me for a public rebuttal)
So I replied:
do you have a blog?
Do you run with some news articles on your social media?
If so, do you let people find the entire story by including many links to various sources that collaborate the information you've presented? Aka, journalism?
ABC, Fox, Al Jezeera, Today.com, even local news outlet from Texas that broke the story.
But, you ignored all that, and bitch about how this occurred (I only report on the news, I don't create it) and praise the residents for pitching in, only now, when suddenly the problem is in their front yard, not where it's been a daily occurrence for decades, in the border states of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and Florida... where no one from Martha's Vineyard has been affected.
So, those are the facts, I stated facts, just not anything past the headlines. Not the day 2 events, or day 3, or the lawyers, politicians reactions, or the ICE and Homeland Defense reactions.
So, you are on attack mode because I'm not a believer in your religion of politics. I report the news, sometimes.
Do you, ever?
It IS a good story, it's pioneering a new method of political intervention by changing the first stop of illegals from a border town, to the private island of the megawealthy.
Also, you nimrod, anything I say on my blog, in the fucking comments section, is hardly a public attack. Only about 4 people, other than me or you, will ever read this reply to your invitation to a rebuttal of your complaint about how I choose to report the news... which you were oblivious of the time I did so, before events unfolded that YOU wanted me to, either time travel to learn of and report on ahead of time, OR do follow ups.
I don't choose to do follow ups, and the immense amount of time to waste researching how the illegals get treated, by who, compare that to the way the illegals in California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and Florida are treated, and follow up on how the Martha's Vineyard volunteers quit caring about illegals the instant there aren't any on the island, ignoring all that cross into the USA unless they suicide fly airliners into the twin towers (21 years ago the week of the Martha's Vineyard charter flight) and how the illegals get treated by the system in place to either deport them, or integrate them, in comparison to the hundreds of thousands in the past 12 months that didn't get the welcome wagon flight to the Massachusetts island, to the open arms of dumbfounded lefty liberals.
I choose to run the news about the averted railroad strike, the civil rights violation in Louisville of Tae-Ahn Lea, the auction of vehicles in Nigeria, record auction results in petroliana, and a flying hoverbike being sold in Japan on display at the Autorama.
You? Did you blog about news?
You show up, when I'm busy, and complain that I don't praise your tribe, or do enough to follow up on ONE news event.
Now, I doubt, strongly, that you can see that this is not YOUR news channel, or YOUR news anchor.
Instead, this is MY BLOG.
I'm busy over here.
Idiots like you are always complaining, because you aren't creating anything.
The famous Theodore Roosevelt quote about striving valiantly and daring greatly
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910
