Tip: The Thinking Blogger Award
I approach “Internet memes” carefully, because some viral schemes aren’t that pleasant (getting your mailbox filled with feature-length presentations is what I’m talking about). The Thinking Blogger meme, however, is akin to the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim in that it aims to promote exposure of blogs. I’ve been nominated by Ronbo of The Freedom Fighter’s Journal (and perhaps more people I can’t find—please bear with me, I’m a novice at those things). It works like this:
- If you get the award, post a link to 5 blogs that made you think.
- Link to the post that started it all, so people can find out the origin of the meme.
- Optional: proudly display the “Thinking Blogger Award” button with a link to the post that you wrote.
First, I’m flattered, though I personally think a Thinking Blogger title should go to all the bloggers of the non-Lefty, non-Muslim blogosphere. <g>
And now for the 5 blogs that made me think:
- Gates of Vienna – duh, like you didn’t see that one coming… one of two blogs without which this one would not be. (The other one is LGF.)
Gerard Van der Leun’s American Digest – an ex-Sixties-Hippie delivering so much intriguing comment about the
pro-terroranti-war movement and what makes it tick.
- A Western Heart – an Australian blog chronicling, and commenting on, the PC erosion of the West’s defenses against Islam.
- Cox & Forkum – provoking thought with words is one thing; here are the masters of doing it with pictures. Remember: the Muslims fear our cartoons far more than they fear our F-16’s!
- Mere Rhetoric – the global conflict from an Israeli perspective. Where Israel goes, so does the rest of the world a little later, and that’s good food for thought.
Thanks y’all. Time’s coming for me to close shop… to rest as He did.
