All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Pick a Name

I realize that some bloggers have a no anonymous commenting policy.   I don't really want to go that route.  I don't ever recall deleting anyone's comments, unless they got caught in the spam system. 

I don't care if people agree with me or not.  I'm not going to freak out if you have something contrary to say.  The issue, as I see it, is that anyone can be "anonymous".  When you do that, nobody knows who  is who.  So please sign your "name" or what ever alter ego you want to use, so we know who we're talking to.  Thanks.

    Boy you are a rude little person in someone else's house aren't you? Res is entitled to his rules Nancy.

  3. Susan,

    I'm not too worried about if I get anonymous comments. It doesn't bother me that much. I don't think I'll spend too much time engaging people that don't want to be identified.

    I know. It is just getting really irritating that the trolls are making havoc on so many conservative websites and they think it is ok to be rude.

    Your's, Vox's, Nate's and Lucianne Goldberg(Jonah's mom) have the only websites now that are still salons and have not become saloons. I can't tell you how much of a relief that is sometimes.

    Not that I frequent salons, but as for Nate's, drinking distilled spirits, smoking stories with a pistol on your hip feels mighty saloonish to me. It's just a classy saloon.

    I know what you're saying, though.
