The Carnival Is Coming To Town!!!

Roll up! Roll up! See the show! BogsBlog is the host for the next Carnival of the Liberals, beginning Wednesday, April 25.

No artificially colored cotton candy (aka candy floss), sickening rides or freak shows here. Well, maybe some of the latter. But,
basically, you write a killer post on your own blog, then I link all my visitors to your site to read that post (and possibly many other posts on your blog). This goes on for two weeks.

Looking to generate some traffic on your own blog? Play along! Submit a post for consideration here by 11:59 PM Eastern (GMT -5:00), Monday, April 23. I know it's a tight turnaround, but I also know you industrious bloggers can handle it!

Topic? Whatever's on your liberal mind. However, if you want suggestions, I have some...
  • Abstinence-based sex education: Is it helping or hurting kids?
  • Hate crime legislation: Is it needed?
  • What important issues are currently being ignored by our elected officials?
Get creative. Open your mind and pour it out on the page. Get to work! I and the rest of Blogland are looking forward to reading your post!

are you the bitch that nursed Romulus and Remus?

she said...

did you know the figures of the first emperors were added later, in the 15th century? originally Lupa stood alone. she had been erected on the Capitol as an emblem of the fusion of Latins and Sabines.

Pete Bogs said...

she - I had no idea... but the Renaissance, which followed shortly thereafter, was all about remembering the "good old times"

Hellpig said...

wow bogs a bloggers discrimination day love it

hi Freya

Pete Bogs said...

hell - everyone is free to read and comment here, as always...

"Topic? Whatever's on your liberal mind"

Just busting your balls Bogs you know I love you,actually you are probly the only lib I am willing to talk with.....feel honored

Hi.

What is the sense of talking about things people believe in? I mean issues, beliefs, right vs left, opinions.

Bogs, does it really make a difference what anyone says here or on any forum? Is any communication on any forum doing anything? Is it accomplishing anything?

Hellpig. Do you feel that if you stay strong by your beliefs you will get others to change their beliefs? Why do you come here or any forum? This is a serious question to you. Does anything we say on a forum do anything in the big picture?


sincerely,

Hellpig's former troll.

she said...

hey hell. he excluded us animals from his carnival. bogs turn in your environmental creds.
i thought libs loved animals. grrrherhaa

existential angst alert! no troll. nothing you do makes a difference so give up your futile commentary.

Pete Bogs said...

I don't think any of you pigs or dogs would want to post something liberal-themed on your own sites... that's the main point of the Carnival of Liberals, which I did not create, but am participating in... should be fun for you guys, though, having new libs to share your wisdom with... lol...

she - I agree with you... anon is getting a bit nihilistic... must be watching Bergman movies or something... or Interiors...

she said...

"cribs" works for me.

Anonymous said...

I give up.

Bird said...

great idea bogs - the time limit is too tight for me, unless you accept a post written before your invitation to the carnival.
i posted a piece on the Sups' recent decision the other day- though it's not my finest piece of writing - but maybe it's an "early" entry????

even conservatives are welcome to comment at the roost - though civility is a must. even ab and i have managed to maintain a kind approach to each other on that post (shocking indeed.)

hellpig - did you ever catch the southpark episode about the museum of tolerance? it's a hoot. i was shocked to discover there actually is a real Museum of Tolerance (and colleagues who attended a workshop there said it is almost as bad as the southpark version). yes, sometimes "tolerance" can be taken to an extreme - and thus outlive its usefulness. (hey pig, how are the mariners doing? and bogs - are you following the marlins? ooopss...totally OT!)

flap/flap/ and away!

Hellpig said...

ANON you are the outsider here

get a clue

This is why we refer to YOU as the TROLL you aren't my former troll you have not the balls to post at the STY

Aunty Belle said...

Bet that troll lives in a Loch.

Pete Bogs said...

bird - I can be previously written... but must be submitted via that link on this post... go for it!!!

Pete Bogs said...

anon - don't bring that shit over to a second thread here...

Infinitesimal said...

Ummm...

Belle, I am dollars to donuts that anon/troll is NOT from the loch.

His is a much more refined style.

Aunty Belle said...

Sweet Shoat..done left ya ' a note on the #$%^&* UN over at yore Sty.

Infini? Ya think our ole' Loch lounger ain't this troll? Well...methinks you might have keener insight--I'se takin' yore hunch.

Bawgs, lib only essay/ post?
Dern.

Infinitesimal said...

Oh, Belle I think he left one comment on topic in the post below perhaps, as anon... but I do not think he was the one posing questions to your sweet shoat or leaving other personal remarks prior, or since.

Pete Bogs said...

there were at least two separate "anons" posting here... I have disabled anonymous comments...

Sanford said...

Sheryl Crow Punk'd the world and media!

Hellpig said...

ABOUT TIME............LMAO

Sanford said...

Bogs, was Sheryl Crow being a Troll when she made comments about people using only one square of toilet paper?

Infinitesimal said...

I heard about that,
who's going to police that?

And we have sooooooo many other things we could cut back on paper-wise. TP is not one of them. NO M'AM

"I don't have a square to spare"

Sanford said...

"Infinitesimal said...
I heard about that,
who's going to police that?

And we have sooooooo many other things we could cut back on paper-wise. TP is not one of"

It was all a joke by her. It was not serious. Was she a troll for bringing it up?

Bird said...

farewell to the anonymous commenters - though not all anons are trolls, nor obnoxious.

now if we could just disable the non-anonymous commenters who resort to taunts and name-calling.

crow's remark was a joke? haha - she needs a new writer then. as i research it more, i'm beginning to think that sometimes, this effort to encourage us to decrease our carbon foot prints is a plot to keep us distracted from fighting the bigger fights. i suppose we need to do both.

flap/flap/swoosh!

Hellpig said...

hey Bird I hear they are cutting the 7.2 billion a year that SF gets from the Feds.......also no more FBI,FEMA,or other Fed agencies.....Maybe next time your santuary city mayor will abide by the laws of the USA,how much revenue did SF lose when the military moved away?

AAAAAAAHHH the Glorious Republic of the Morally Challenged San Fransico


All ANONS are Trolls too lazy to even register a fake name

Bird said...

pig,

sf declared itself a sanctuary long before newsom spoke up this week. You know, SAN FRANCISCO - St. Francis de Assisi (saint of mercy and so forth). the declaration was largely sympbolic.

but there are two, important details which informed newsom's recent statement about sanctury - details which have been largely ignored by folks that love to gawk at the headlines and stay on the surface, rather than exploring the depth of an issue. those details are:

1. in the past year, the feds have conducted raids in sf that have targeted, abused, and terrorized not illegals, but lawful immigrants and naturalized citizens. oh, excuse me - your last name is gonzales - you must be illegal - let me scare the living daylights out of your family and detain you illegally until i discover - oh - what- you're a CITIZEN??? HELL YEAH - San Francisco will not put up or TOLERATE (we're so intolerant here, you know) such abuse of its citizens.

and

2) public employees of San Francisco are too busy with the work of the city and have no business, desire, nor legal right or obligation to help the feds harrass honest citizens and LEGAL aliens.

Hellpig said...

which is why they are cutting the funding...no more road repair or socialist services for you

someday god will flush that god foresaken city with an earthquake and push it into the bay

Bird said...

yes pig, i'm sure god will punish san francisco because we try to protect citizens and legal aliens from stupidty.

which god we talkin' bout?

Hellpig said...

ROFLMAO.......Looks like GOD came through Bird

Freeway burns to ground because Illegal invader crashes fuel truck,invader was also not properly licensed,imagine that

Pete Bogs said...

hell - we had a truck explode and take down an overpass here about a month ago... what was God's excuse then?

Hellpig said...

Not sure Bogs link me to a article on it and I'll tell you

Bird said...

Pig,
whuyda mean "illegal invader" and not "properly licensed?"

i've not seen any reports yet that state James Mosqueda is in the country illegally, nor that his license isn't proper. Can you substantiate that claim? Or are you merely going by the last name? If so, that is similar to the situation which the City of San Francisco and Gavin Newsom wish to combat - the unfair targeting of citizens or legal immigrants based on their last name or physical appearance.

Now, I have read a news report that states Mosqueda has a clean driving recordand that he was driving above the speed limit at the time of the accident. The investigation is ongoing.

But god's punishment? Your comment reminds me of Pat Robertson - I think it was good ol' Pat - who said 9/11 was God punishing the US for it's evil ways.

Bogs, do you recall? Was that Robertson?

Hellpig said...

no bird I will not engage you here,I'll wage my war on your soil,to the aviary...hypocrite

Bird said...

no pig, i won't engage with you at my roost unless you follow the rules, and i don't care to engage with you here any further as you have resorted to name-calling.

winging off....

Pete Bogs said...

bird - it was Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell chatting together who made the comment about 9/11 being the fault of feminists, etc.

there's at least one post on BogsBlog about it...

pig - here's the link...

senseless death

btw, I am posting over at Fragmentia 13 during this carnival... there's a link on the BB homepage...
