When I started this blog a year ago, one of the goals was to influence people's thinking about the issues of the day. I didn't want to spend time doing another blog that simply regurgitated the Drudge Report headlines.
At least once every couple of days, I've tried to do a post that questions the conventional wisdom on an issue and I would love to have a liberal "stalk" the site to debate us on the post at hand.
But Ive started to learn that much of blogging is "preaching to the choir". People just aren't inclined to read opposing opinions.
So a couple of weeks ago I figured I'd take the "fight" to the enemy and debate issues on their sights. I began with my question to Progress Ohio on how much I should pay my employees. They've refused to answer my question.
So I've been surfing lots of liberal blogs Buckeye State, Plunderbund, Psychobilly Democrat, Dispassionate Liberal, etc. etc. and I can't find one liberal blog that actually posts on the issues. Most just post about the election and how republicans hate the poor, blacks, women, homosexuals, etc. For the past three days, I haven't been able to find one liberal blog that seeks to convert a reader to their thinking.
I'll throw this out there. If there is a liberal blog that would like to debate this blog on an issue, please email me at email@example.com and we'll work out the details.
