Hypocrisy Sighting:

A Reader Comments On OTBL's "Terms of Use"
I had to take a few minutes and read what the OTBL folks think is an acceptable "Terms of Use" for registration for OnTheBorderLine.net

This is a private blog and all postings and comments become property of the administrator of the blog.

You have got to be kidding me!

Are these the same people who are crying that School Board members freedom of speech is threatened by a Code of Conduct that 5 of the current 7 New Richmond Board members voted for at its inception?

Who's Who's at the OTBL blog...

Doing a little research on the following post running at www.ontheborderline.net by Chris the admin, I discovered an interesting coincidence. My findings have at least to possible conclusions:
1. Chris doesn't mind taking credit of the work of other bloggers on his site.
2. Chris is also posts by the name In The Know.

Posted yesterday, the current post is titled "Six Basic Functions Of School." The link to that post is: http://www.ontheborderline.net/?p=3498

Below is a snapshot of part of the post. Notice the name of the poster: Chris.

What is interesting is that I ran across a post done on 7/30/2005 titled "The Purpose Of Mandatory Public Education." It's identical to the current post, with one exception -- the name of the post is In The Know. The link to that post is: http://www.ontheborderline.net/?p=1498

Below is a partial snapshot of that post:

Interesting. This might help you readers of the blog better understand who's who on the borderline.

Q: Why Don't Spines Tingle @ OTBL?

A Note For Luke At www.ontheborderline.net

I'm not a frequent user of this Blog, but I do read both Blogs for entertainment. I appreciate that "atbl1" does allow an open exchange of opinions.


You seem to have an issue with me, yet you insist on hiding behind anonymity. I suspect that is due to a deficiency in justification for your comments, and personal frailties. I've freely given my email address (dtrende@comcast.net), and would be willing to communicate with you regardless of how "off the chart your comments have been".

If Jack wins, I sure hope he'll bring his Emmy to the next New Richmond School Board Meeting to show it

Here's A Thought...

"Redneck slumggullion, like any stew, makes a tasty, nutritious and conherent whole. And why not? Society too, human society, is like a stew -- if you don't keep it stirred up you get a lot of scum on top. Coherent or not, these chucks of words share one commone theme: the need to make sense of private experience by exploring connections and contradictions among wildness and wilderness, community and anarchy; between civilization and human freedom. Eat hearty, mates."

Lady Liberty Trades In Some Trappings -- No Joke Here

Could Elvis On Mt. Rushmore Be Next?

As the congregation of the World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church looked on and its pastor, Apostle Alton R. Williams, presided, a brown shroud much like a burqa was pulled away to reveal a giant statue of the Lady, but with the Ten Commandments under one arm and "Jehovah" inscribed on her crown.

And in place of a torch, she held aloft a large gold cross, as if to ward off the pawnshops, the car dealerships and the discount furniture outlets at the busy corner of Kirby Parkway and Winchester that is her home. A single tear graced her cheek.

It was not clear if she was crying because of her new home, her new identity as a symbol of religion or, as the pastor said, America's increasing godlessness. But although big cheers went up from the few hundred onlookers at the unveiling, and some people even wore foam Lady Liberty crowns bearing Christian slogans, she was not universally welcomed.

We Can't Make It Here: Verse 1

There’s a Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign
Sitting there by the left turn line
Flag on his wheelchair flapping in the breeze
One leg missing and both hands free
No one’s paying much mind to him
The V.A. budget’s just stretched so thin
And now there’s more coming back from the Mideast war
We can’t make it here anymore.

Commenter Fact Check

In the comments section of an earlier post

The Fable of The Beavers and The Skunks

an anonymous commenter
called into question the following:

4/7/06 08:21, clean you own house first said...

"How "Above" is it (to) call anyone who supports public education a "Socialist" when
that would make 75% of Americans "Socialist" Even your Seperation of School and
State website admits that ,at the most, 25% support your privitazation of "Government"
schools. Reasonable people see them as our community schools not "Government Schools"like
you idiots.(That's pure propoganda and you know it)."

At 4/7/06 15:25, anonomous said...
"I think you are clearly above them (referring to OTBL) since you decided that since your facts are so correct, you need not cite your numbers."

A little fact checking appears to verify that "Clean you own house first" has the facts correct, even though he speaks broken English or has a missing letter on his keyboard . Marshall Fritz Article

So a whopping 25% of the U.S. Population are Non-Socialists ( in accordance with the International
OTBL standards of Socialism) and support the end of "Government Schools".
Looks like your side has some catching up to do. If you work hard you may someday reach President
Bush's approval rating of 32%.

The OTBL Agenda: Agree with us or be called a "Socilaist"

Richard M. Nixon: Socialist Scum?

Followers of the Hudson-based blog www.ontheborderline.net by now know that anyone who dosen't agree with them is quickly tagged as a socialist. Readers of that blog also so know that originality and creativity are not cards in the deck they play with. They pull most of their sources of information from a variety of site and use the cut-n-paste option available in the software package. One of their avorite sources of information is the Ludwig von Mises Institute and an often quote economist attached to that site is Murray N. Rothbard.

In the interest of finding out who else has been tagged with the socialist boogieman, a reader did a little research and found an interesting article by Rothbard on the von Mises site calling Nixon a socialist.

Read Rothbard's article on Nixonian Socialism.

Behind The OTBL Agenda: The Southern Baptists

Southern Baptist Convention Says School Reform Won't Work

"Today school boards, administrators, and teachers have far less power to determine what goes on within their schools than they did even 10 years ago," Bruce Shortt, a homeschool father, Houston attorney and author of The Harsh Truth About Public Schools, said in an e-mail report. "Instead, most of the power over education that once resided locally has flowed to the state and federal governments, the teachers' unions, and the courts."
Sound familiar? If you follow the information posted at the www.ontheborderline.net site, you will hear echoes of this quote daily. A resolution, voted on at the recent Southern Baptist Convention, urged reform of public education by calling for church members to run for school boards. The resolution was introduce by a leader in a movement advocating an exit strategy from government schools.

Read the about the resolution in Ethics Daily.
Read the actual resolution.


When CATO Speaks People Listen

CATO Says:

"Basically no one is poor in America though andyrand.
I don't believe you could possibly think otherwise."

"the only reason they are revolted by my phlosophy is because they'd rather be lazy. They'll come around. Too lazy to help your fellow man yourself. Too lazy to help your family yorself. Too lazy to help yourself. Government save me from the bad things about my sloth! "

"But why should the government put a gun to my head and tell me I should be helping people solely because they made a stupid decision to live in New Orleans? You cannot make such a justification. They are not my problem. "

“there is a segment of the population that your namesake
(Ayn Rand ) refered to as the social ballast.”

Still The Greatest Country on Earth

Even with it's faults which we point out often here, America is still the Greatest Country on the Planet.

The atbl BIG WORD

We've all heard the saying "Nobody likes a wise guy", but did you ever stop
to think if that's really true? Maybe the people who don't like wise guys are
just jeolous because they want to be wise guys but lack the word power for the job.
At least one anonymous commenter on this site really likes OTBL because
"Your arch-nemesis site uses words, which can be hard to understand...."
Well we have to admit that we here at ATBL tend to agree with Confucius who said, one picture is worth 1000 big words. But then again there are those who earnestly believe that he who useth the biggest word is the "most rightest". (Yeah I know it's poor English so don't bother commenting ).
But we will not shy away from a chanllege. We can use big words that can be hard
to understand just like OTBL and we'll even try really hard to understand them.
So we are introducing the First ATBL BIG WORD (that can be hard to understand) and
that word is "Ontology" (insert sound of game show bell here.)

Don't Do It Jack Bauer!

We see the local media elites at the New Richmond News have dug deep into their vast corporate treasure chest and are now offering four Minnesota Twins tickets to anyone who comes up with the actual name of the OTBL'ers anonymous blogger, the forever flatulent Jack Bauer. Our mole embedded into the NR News organization tells us that no expense was spared on the thickets. Since they are "knot hole"day tickets, I think our mole meant no expense was incurred.

Here at ATBL, we believe in the power of anonymous blooging. In fact we believe so deeper in this time-honored principle, we are upping the ante to encourage Jack Bauer not to leave his outhouse on anonymity and take the filthy lucre of the NR News. Our offer to Jack Bauer are free tickets to the next Minnesota Viking Superbowl Post Game Party. All Jack Bauer has to do is to remain anonymous and contact us one week prior to the next Viking Super Bowl victory.

At your own risk, check out the Vikings Super Bowl Site.
