Recently Ben had this post about carpooling to the Blogs United for Free Speech to be held in Martinsville. I encourage everyone to read the comments by James Martin of the Virginia Progressive blog. We have Ben trying to help attendees and James being an ass. We also have a comment by phriendlyjaime saying "What? I thought this thread was about carpooling. Ben-will you drive? I can only go to this thing if I am good and hammered the whole time." I see why she is called "phriendly" I hope she attends as I think the spirits will be flowing and a great time will be had by all.
It seems to me that the so called party of open minds and progressive thought is against this conference. I will bring this point up to Dickie Cranwell, Mary Sue Terry, and Leslie Byrne when we meet. I am sure they will be proud.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone there, especially the bloggers and speakers from the left. I predict much complaining will arise from some who chose not to attend. They will scream partisanship or something. That will not work with this conference. There have been at least 50 posts on many blogs asking for input and help. No idea or person has been rejected. Every blogger has been asked. The free time and round tables allow all thoughts and views to be easily aired. As I said months ago this will be a conference for bloggers, by bloggers. If you have complaints look in the mirror and address the one at fault.
