Skip to comments.Regarding "The Pig Trap"

As I have said more than once, the main point of this blog is just simple therapy for me
I just need a creative way to blow off steam, and beating my wife, taking up recreational heroin, or soaking these drunken douchebags down with bear mace and leaving them gasping and writhing in the gutter where they belong dont seem like great options. Nobody reads this blog except a handful of my regular passengers, a few cool, smart people from out-of-town that I direct to it, and people at HotAir.com that I sometimes direct to a post over here, if it is funny or has some bearing on current events. I dont do this for money; you will note a distinct absence of banners and Google ads on my site. On a good day, I get 30 or 50 uniques a day
I think my record was 375 or 400 the day after I posted Stop Being Black.
That is, until I posted The Pig Trap.
I wouldnt say this is going viral, but we do have a serious case of the sniffles here, and nobody is more surprised than me. Tens of thousands of people have read this post. I look at my stats, and I cant believe what I see no less than ten thousand people read that post Thursday. Hundreds of hits are coming in from Australia, of all places. Dozens of websites have linked to this post, people have copied and pasted the whole fucking thing into their blogs, people are pasting the link into discussion forums, Twitter and Facebook are blowing up and sending hundreds of hits per day, and I cant believe some of the websites I am getting traffic from
I am seriously humbled by what I am seeing thank you all. I dont do this because I want to be the next Thomas Payne I do it because I just want to vent a little, and I like writing. And I want to reiterate that I am not an advocate for violence, its just that I look at what is going on today, and I dont see the alternative. I dont think of myself as a particularly brave man, and I get nauseous if I think about this shit for too long. I dont want to see what I know is coming. I wish that someone smarter than me would stand up and say, This is how we fix this!
But I just dont see that guy
Apparently, I have struck a nerve and I probably just got added to a list.
But as I once heard David Codrea say, If you have ever filled out a 4473, you are already on a list.
Thank you again.
No thanks - only if his language was cleaned up...
I missed this the first time around...
Nope - Jim has had to roust a few FReepers because of language and some of us are pretty tired of it being allowed - in any form - whether copied or otherwise. If a person isn’t able to write without resorting to gutter language, then what could that person write that would be worth reading? I believe the FR rules apply to anything posted whether original or not.
Really. Get over the language - not excessive, considering the enormity of the observations - and read the post!
Wow, this describes me.
Long read, but valid.
If you expect to recognize the threat and deal with the consequences, this is a MUST READ.
If you are too prissy, then Read the Declaration of Independence, then consider what happens when enough Americans get tired of abuses far worse than those experienced by our Founding Fathers.
I read the pig trap and have this cautionary revision suggestion. Made with admiration and affection.
There was the original story of the pig trap and it was done very well. That’s where the blog should have ended.
Then the essay veered off into some additional subject matter that made the essay very long and somewhat uneven. Next time finish your original subject strong—and then write another one on the other subjects. Don’t confuse your audience.
