As you know, I've been having some fun trying to beat business guru Guy Kawasaki to the top ten in technorati ranking game.
Unfortunately...as I wished for links, because it's all about the links baby! I have been linked by some peoples blogs who I feel are dead wrong in their ethics. This came as a great shock to me.
I wanted success at my competition and success I have been getting. So successful in fact that I have been linked by certain blogs and websites that I would perhaps rather not be. Please be advised that I would rather not be associated with any racist blogs, or those that preach bigotry in any form. My presence as a link on their sites is an unfortunate side effect of my Kawasaki competition at technorati. And, we can't control how our ideas may be used by others, that is a risk within a democratic structure like the internet. I can take a stand though.
I am in the process of making comments regarding the racist and prejudicial opinions on some of these blogs, along with a request that I be removed from their blogroll.
I feel racism and hate is dead wrong.
I believe we need to talk to the very people we most fear and judge in order to understand each other and to learn to at least tolerate our different opinions.
I believe in free speech and that everyone is entitled to their opinion...but in the words of Woody Allen, the lamb will lie down with the lion, but the lamb won't get much sleep. I am vigilant in my rejection of racism, agism, prejudice and hate.
Especailly with the headlines of war, the crisis in the middle east, and hate crimes even in free countries I feel it's especially important to take a stand for peaceful conflict resolution, understanding and at the very least tolerance.
With prayers and meditations heading from my heart to the middle east we need to take a stand and not allow the residents to play out their own horrors and resentments. Perhpas no one should live in the middle east.
We wouldn't allow little toddlers to act the way we allow the middle east to act. We teach our toddlers about time-out.
It's high time we turn the whole fertile crescent into Time Out International Park. No one can live there any more. Militia will be the Park Rangers, with 50 dollars U. S. and a passport and complete search of your bags and person...you may go visit Mecca.
Fertile Crescent? Your priveledges have been revoked. You are grounded. You may come and live in Canada where we play card games, allow gays to marry, have medical coverage based on income, hockey, beautiful beer, cold winters and hot summers. You will learn to love the leaf of peacekeeping on our flag. You are not allowed to fight but rather debate. And play sports. Sports is the marriage of art and war. Technorati Ranking is the new black. My joyful teasing of Guy Kawasaki's desire to be top ten rank in technorati is a metaphor to me about how to fight. Fight with art. Not the art of war.
Fertile Crescent? You will be returned to Nature: Time Out International Park.
Or else? Go fuck yourselves, you're worse than a toddler without a caregiver! You should be ashamed.
There is only one race. The human race. Every other concept of race is socially constructed based on superficial adaptations to environment.
You are fighting over something that doesn't even exist you idiots.
Tired of moving stones?
