No, I am NOT resigning from Prog Blog, and thoughts.

Leave it to a conservative to misunderstand my statement at Prog Blog. đŸ™‚

I’m more posting this because I see Greg’s post at the top of the Blog Culture category at the Canadian Blog Exchange and want to update it with an accurate account. What I stated was that I wouldnt be posting editorials at Prog Blog anymore, but I would remain involved as a moderator on the admin side of things. I stated at the very end of my note as a matter of fact that I was not resigning, but maybe some people didnt get that far.

I realize it was a long post, so maybe its sorta like where the people leave the theatre because the movie is too long and so they missed the ending.

Greg was also confused as to what exactly “progressive bloggers” are. As I also stated to Greg at his blog in comments, Progressive Bloggers is more then just a cross-pollination of the Liberal and NDP blogs. We have a nice group of Green Bloggers, and our largest group of blogs – close to 50% – comes from either blogs unaffiliated with any party, or blogs that are also members of James Bow’s blog aggregate, The Blogging Alliance of Non-Partisan Canadians., but who also feel a kinship with our progressive ideals and values on political and social policy (Stageleft would be a good example of 1 such blog).

So, I hope I’ve killed 2 birds with 1 stone – I am still very much a moderator at Progressive Bloggers and have no intention of leaving anytime soon, and the majority of members there are actually not NDP or Liberal bloggers.

Basically, for simplicity sake, We can be called a big umbrella group of anti-conservatives đŸ˜‰ (Though, I will also concede we have a few Blogging Tory affiliates as members too – those would be the “red Tories” amongst that blogging group who are in sympathy with us on social positions such as abortion or same-sex marriage – but the vast majority of Progressive Bloggers does share at least 1 core value – to defeat the group masquerading as a government in Ottawa before they can do any more damage to the country).

  • Ibbitson’s forecasts and advice seldom are worth anything. I will admit though that the CPC probably has until the Spring to make hay of Auditor-General reports of sins/transgressions past by Liberals. Does wonders to remind voters how corrupt, evil and mendacious the Liberals were. So, keep it up, CPC. It’s like the Holocaust … Canadians need reminding what Liberal “values” are. They haven’t changed, by the way. Canadians might even demand a national day of remembrance. That would be nice.

    I can understand how Liberals, and their supporters, must be getting tired of hearing about their party’s corruption all the time. I believe the CPC had a similar problem listening to shrills on Liblogs and in the MSM say how “scary” Harper was. In the streets. In our towns. In our cities. I’m not kidding. I’m not permitted to make this up.

    And, as another criminal (perhaps even Liberal) would have said, “And that’s a good thing.”

  • re: “little brown envelopes”.. The Tories would do well to take Ibbitson’s advice in the Globe that the “Liberals are corrupt” meme will not work with Dion as leader. That’s so 2004.

  • From Werner: “Anyways, you have already been included in my Recommended Links.” Poor Tribe. If anyone has ever visited Werner’s blog, they will recognise a kiss of death.

    From Aaron: “Finally, an honest assessment of the Progressive Bloggers. Anti-CPC ranters.” What about equality. Don’t the NDP, the Greens, the CHP, the Communists and the Marxist-Leninists count for something? What about rants against left-handed Ukranians living on farms in the 705 belt? Oh, the bias, oh, the injustice! Scott, you just have to modify your hard line stance on only bashing the CPC. I can see the court cases lining up now … wait … no, that was the sound of little brown envelopes passing under the table. Sorry.

  • Hello Aaron.. I wondered how long it would take for you to get here. Thanks for visiting.

    And to the one fella.. “shut up” is a bit of a strong word. Aaron’s allowed to vent on here like anyone else – even if he’s wrong on most accounts :em21:

  • And yes, I really do know how to spell ‘epileptic’. So there.

  • (Whoa. All of those animated smilies scared the shit out of me! I’ll bet they cause eplileptic seizures.)

    What? No link to my blog yet you pander to elfin eyes? Well, I never… :em58:

  • Gahd, I hate Aaron Unruh

    Shut up, Aaron Unruh.

    Finally, an honest assessment of the Progressive Bloggers. Anti-CPC ranters.

  • These Blogging Tories will hear what they want to hear. When you made your announcement, I suppose, they were hoping for some big scandal in the progressive blogosphere or something. They were already salivating and all at the mere thought of it.

    Well, tough, no scandal in the progressive blogosphere, just one blogger deciding to join a political party and finally setting up his own blog (about time, too!).

    Anyways, you have already been included in my Recommended Links.

  • I am not familiar with Blogger as to whether they have a template to allow 2 columns on their page. Some of our blogger compatriots would be better to answer that then I.

    And thanks for the link

  • Man I wish I could figur out how to get a left-hand column on my blogsite.

    Oh, and I am happy to have you linked from my site.

    Cheers,
