Bullseye?

So I haven’t been blogging much, because when I have a quickie curse at the Endarkenment, it generally ends up on Facebook… which annoys my commie musician friends no end. But last week I blurted out something that seems to have made me Famous, with all the brightest lights of the wookiesphere reblogging and retweeting it. While one can always take pride in a well-turned phrase, I’m not all that thrilled…if it doesn’t get me shot some day, it will be because it got reattributed to P. J. O’Roarke or somebody.

    Saw the quote on “TwoFour”. Don’t tweet or facebook or any other “networking”. Did take the liberty of modifying your sentiment for use as a tag line on several forums, to wit-
    “You have the right to force me to pay for the feeding, clothing, housing, education, and medical treatment of yourself and your children when i have the RIGHT TO FORCE YOU TO PICK MY COTTON.” After which I quote Section 1 of the 13th Amendment.
