i come armed with an, eh, extreme marshmallow cannon

Okay, let’s try this again.

*** This is a blog for supporters of President Barack Obama ***

That’s pretty straightforward, right?

If you’re not a supporter of PBO, then this isn’t the place for you.

And even if you are a supporter of PBO, but your sole intention is, on a daily basis, to deflate the spirits of fellow PBO supporters by pissing on every piece of encouraging news, or treating us to brain-dead anti-PBO right wing talking point crap, or abusing fellow-blog visitors, then this isn’t the place for you either.

I’m not a fan of Markos Moulitsas, but …..

“As I tell my own disgruntled commenters, if they don’t like a site’s comment policies, they can always find greener pastures elsewhere. It’s a big Internet.”

It is too. It’s huge! So, play somewhere else if this place isn’t your thing.

And if the best you can bring here is “Catholics are soooooooooo anti-Obama” ….

…..ignoring the fact that 54% of them voted for him in 2008 (despite his pro-choice position), ignoring the fact that 98% of Catholic women have used contraception (against Vatican teaching), and ignoring the fact that, in the latest poll, 58% of Catholics believe that employers should be required to provide their employees with health care plans that cover contraception….

… then, please, spare us your nonsense, go away. The notion that every Catholic on planet earth thinks the same is comically offensive …. if you think they do, that says a whole lot more about you than it does about Catholics.

I’ve blocked two of these bullshit-spreaders today, and I’ll block anyone else who brings their RW anti-PBO crap to this blog again. Seriously, if we want to read that stuff we’ll go to Drudge.

When you’re gone, you’re gone, no apologies – have a nice life.

This is one person’s very tiny slice of internet space, if you don’t like it, then cheerio.

And to one of the people I blocked today, signing in under a new name doesn’t work, it just confirms you’re a troll.

Arguments are always welcome here, but not when you descend to the level of, say, Sean Hannity … when you reach that depth, then it’s really time to say goodbye.

Onwards and upwards, press on ;-)

night everyone

President Obama arrives for a dinner hosted by President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in Deauville

Hello people, before I say a hearty goodnight, just a word – or several!

Since this blog started up, I’ve only ‘banned’ a single person – if you don’t count the troubled teabagger and professional leftie visitors who automatically end up in the junk folder, along with all those nice people trying to promote willy-growth products. There’s a link there, but I’ll behave.

Other than teabaggers, professional lefties and willy-growth promoters, I don’t want to ban anyone, I never, ever dreamt of being a ‘mod’ when I was growing up. Honest. The person in question, though, launched one too many attacks on fellow visitors to this blog, before sending me a parting message that focused largely on the hue of the President’s skin. Strange.

As you all know, this blog is proudly pro-President Obama – as I always say, there are countless other sites to visit if you want to spew bile all over him, or his supporters. But this place is designed to be a refuge from all that hate, and will always remain so.

All I ask is that people who comment here show respect for each other – and almost everyone of you does. But, please, no more “lighten up” comments (deleted) in response to sincere people who express from-the-heart opinions about an issue, just respectfully argue things out without abusing each other. Please?

Much as I hate doing it, I will ban people who bring hostility and nastiness to this place. I almost dished out a second ban today, but took a deep breath – we’ll see. Remember, this is a hate-free zone ;-)

Thanks everyone, see you tomorrow.
