Out Of The Blaze

Glenn Beck, and his staff, have recently started a website called, “The Blaze” which is set up “to post, report and analyze stories of interest on a wide range of topics from politics and culture to faith and family.”

Although this new site has some great news stories which I may stop by to read from time to time, the comment sections are chalked full of idiots. It's just another realm where people who enjoy attacking one another are going to hang out. Great discussions are fun, stupidity just annoys me and I don't have the time to devote attempting to change the minds of the ignorant.

I believe it's important to note that I only waded into the comments section on a few articles, and those two endeavors actually turned out well. It was the reading of other comment sections which made me come to this conclusion. I didn't even want to dip my toe in the name-calling pool that this comment section displays.

Throughout our lives there will always be narrow-minded people spewing comments that can't be backed up by any sort of intelligent facts or discussion.

It's difficult to believe, I know, but I occasionally post articles that I later find out have some errors in them. When these ar discovered I will correct the error or make note of it in the comment section.

This is why I don't want you to read my work and get mad and run away, point out where I have it wrong. That's the whole reason I write, so that I can engage in friendly discussions with people who can help me understand another side of my observation.

Unfortunately there are some subjects where you and I will disagree because there really is not much in the way as "evidence" to substantiate either one of our claims. In these cases, we can agree to disagree, but I still love to read your views, and welcome them on this blog.

Enough of this ramble, it's time to be productive around the house...


  1. Are you posting these to your FB? You should. :)

  2. Nope. I figure if people want to see them they can come and follow this site. My articles can annoy some folks so I try not to clutter my FB pages with my views on things. :)

  3. I just added the share buttons so people can share my articles to their favorite social sites.
