A tired blogger.

I'm just plain tired of blogging about the political, social and moral condition of our nation.  There are so many others who are doing the same thing.  I feel like I'm preaching to the choir most of the time.  Very few people are commenting anymore, including me.

I think I'm going to change tracks for a while and maybe refresh myself and some of my readers.

I have been writing my congressmen and women and all I get back are form letters and pablum.

I don't think any politician in Washington, D. C. is capable of a straight answer.  I send specific questions with the best documentation I can muster and I get back a canned "answer all" letter sent by some staffer.

They all sound like campaign speeches.

Facebook is the rage and I can't find much entertainment value there.

Stay tuned for the new look and feel of Pappy's Place.

  1. Hey pappy, I like what you have had
    to say, and that you have the nerve
    to say it!


  2. turning over a new leaf? there is nothing new under the sun.

    I like you blog, even if I don't always comment.
    I will stay tuned.

  3. Thanks Karen. Hope you like the new content. Pappy

  4. Whatever direction you decide to go in, I'll be here reading, but I hope that you won't give up on political commentary completely. Often you post about something new to me and it is helpful. As for our many are just plain useless. If I never get another letter from one of them in response to something I wrote, I don't care. They're obviously not reading. Collins and Snowe (here in Maine) usually respond with the generic "I represent all the people of Maine." Well, no, you don't, gals, you represent the people of Maine who put you there.

    I don't know where I was going with that one, but anyway, just know that you are not writing in a vacuum and far more are reading than are commenting. My husband never comments, but he is always asking if you're on vacation. ;>

    All the very best to you...

  5. You may be preaching to the choir, but sometimes the choir needs reinforcement.

  6. Trying to receive a honest, coherent, and actual answer from your elected official is like finding a needle in a haystack. Looks like a tired Confederate soldier(blogger) in the picture.

  7. Totally understand. I haven't been blogging or commenting much either. The current administration is so evil, it's hard to keep up. Hubby and I will always follow blog, unless you go Commie lib or go off-line or one of us is in Glory. :)

  8. I am still here. I just don't always comment. I agree with you; I just think what's the point sometimes. They don't have ears to hear and if they did, they wouldn't listen to us. To many things they want to do and hopefully they don't have much time left to get it done.

  9. Facebook may be the rage, but it can make me tired too. So much nonsense to wade through before finding anything of value.

    Elijah felt alone too, and yet he wasn't. Don't be too discouraged. Our hope is in Him. (I've been listening to David Jeremiah the past couple of days...)

  10. I love reading. I just rarely comment. If I disagreed with you about anything I might have more to comment about. LOL


I encourage your comments. Keep the language civil and you will be published.
