Doug points out another great blog. It is

The Conspiracy to Keep You Poor and Stupid
By Donald L. Luskin

I came across this blog many months ago but like anything on the net, if you don’t link it today, you will forget about it tomorrow. In The Third Wave, information is what we fight wars with. And the blog is what the common man has at his fingertips to organize and store info on the web. Even a homeless man (individual that chooses to live on the street) can organize and be heard by anyone that is connected. And here is where it gets good. You will only be visited by those who choose to come and listen. No gov agent can make you. It is up to each individual to glean information at this generation’s version of the General Store. Instead of old men, the crowd consists of a diverse group that is judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their blog. And people who say stupid stuff get laughed at. And we can give a big Amen to whatever truth we do hear. And we take notes on our blog so others can follow.

So back to Mr. Luskin, he has it correct with this post IN BLOGS WE TRUST

Now on to the subject of Mr. Hacker. I am in the middle of reading his essay Proactive Liberty. It's good, real good. I like this guy. I want to read his blog. But Mr. Hacker has a problem with being forced to do anything against his will, and no amount of wining by Doug will get him to change his mind. Mr. Hacker has made the choice to not use Microsoft Internet Explorer. But Blogger does not play nice with Opera browser. What to do? Simply sidestep the problem by installing W.Bloggar, a wonderful, free program that will allow you to update and maintain your blog without the need of any browser. Do it for the children Allen, I want my son to read your blog.

Oh Doug, w.bloggar works with Blogger, b2, MovableType, Nucleus, BigBlogTool, BlogWorks XML Blogalia and Drupal blogs.
