Oh ... Really?

Who knew?

Well, I guess my partisan confusion has been resolved, courtesy of Knoxviews proprieter and blogger, R Neal. It has been revealed .. I am a conservative blogger. Only ... I'm not. Not by a long shot.

ET conservative blogs and other conservative outlets

Knoxville News Sentinel
Metro Pulse
Halls Shopper
Terry Frank
Les Jones
David Oatney
Brian Hornback
Lissa Kay <----- ???
Rich Hailey
Rob Huddleston
TN Politics/Adam Groves
The Rep

And that's just from the KnoxViews blogroll.

R Neal recently decided that he wants nothing to do with bloggers that don't toe the "progressive" party line, and post only opinions and ideas he agrees with. Okey doke ... it's his site, his decision. But, of course, that does not mean that no one can criticize that decision. (Seems to be a real point of cognitive disconnect with some "progressives" ... freedom of != freedom from). That's a fight I have neither dog nor interest in right now.

At least I am in good company. But to set the record straight ... I am not a conservative, nor am I a liberal. I can't even totally identify with libertarians, greens, or any other political party. I have varied opinions on various subjects that, in my view, are formed based on logic and reason. Some would be deemed conservative, some liberal, some straight down the middle. I don't choose my associations based on people's political views, and I certainly don't wish ill on anyone just because I disagree with their opinions.

I am in a party of one ... let's say I am a Radical Pragmatic and leave it at that, mmmkay?

So did you make "Trusted User" status? Or do you ride in the back of the bus at KnoxViews?

LissaKay's avatar "Trusted User"?? Heh ... right. I'm practically persona non grata in this blogging community, and I have no idea why. I don't ride in the back of the bus, I get left on the sidewalk choking in the exhaust. I just have this wonderful talent for pissing people off just by my mere existence.

That independent thought process of yours will cause trouble. I have some experience with the same thing.

Isn't it odd that the progressives are the first to conduct a purge? I guess I don't fully understand what progressive means.
