On this day, May 14, 2003, I hit “Publish” on my first blog post at the original Blogspot site.
This blog is now officially 20 years old.
I’ve spent the last twenty years trying to figure out what was going on, and it now appears uncontestable that what is going on is an attempt to return society to a two-tiered feudal system, with the people Thomas Sowell calls “The Anointed” as the royalty, and everyone else as the serfs – owning nothing, and no one giving a damn about their happiness.

We were so young back then
I wasn’t too far behind you at 1/23/2004.
We’re still here
And thanks for writing. Many lurkers out here. Never think your work isn’t being read and appreciated.
Definitely a return to a hierarchical, feudal system, with no upward mobility for the peasant caste – but with some peasants allowed to join the priesthood or the warrior caste in the service of The Anointed. Forward to the Past!
Aristocrats and Marxists alike agree that the bourgeoisie must be eradicated!
Congrats! It’s been a really long, strange couple of decades, and it’s been an honor to call you a colleague in liberty.
Happy anniversary. I hadn’t realized it’s been so long. When I think about it, I think I got here in… 2007.
Sheesh, I feel so old.
Congrats on keeping after it all these years. Who’d’ve thought, back in the old days, we’d be here now. And so many have given up blogging, yet you’re still here.
Yeah, GrumpyOldFart, I think we’re all feeling a bit old now.
Happy Anniversary and wishing you many more (as long as it is still fun and/or worthwhile for you)
Congrats! I started following you in 2004 or 2005. Keep up the always good work! 🙂
