The Perils of Blogging

Hello everyone.

Yes, the Wilsonizer still lives. I have been remiss in the blogging department of late, and for those faithful to this little blog I apologize, and ask for your patience. The truth is that my load at work increased significantly in the last few weeks, and I have been getting home late. I have had less time to read what's going on and then post intelligent commentary.

AM I quitting, you may ask? The answer is a resounding "No!!!"

But I am not going to feel guilty if this blog is not as prolific as, say, the Gateway Pundit. In the past I have imposed deadlines upon myself to post, post, post, as if I were dependent on the massive amounts of ad revenue that this blog generates via new-post-derived-traffic (Note: there are no ads on this blog so far, it is a labor of LOVE!).

I will post as much as I can, and continue to make sure my commentary is relevant and meaningful. If I don't generate an average of 1000 words per hour, well, so be it. . .

Get Smart on Alternative Fuels!

It is difficult to go through a day without talking about the price of gas (since nearly everyone I work with drives a giant V-10 sized truck, these discussions are often emotional and animated!). Popular mechanics has a great article describing the most popular types of alternative fuels, and dishes out the advantages and drawbacks of each one. Read the whole thing, and you will be the smart one at the water cooler tomorrow.

Even more importantly, as global demand for petroleum increases, finding altrernative means to meet our energy demands will become increasingly important. Reading and learning about current alternatives is an incremental step toward a solution. So read on, and start solving the world's energy problems!

Post Script: I found this Popular Mechanics article over at instapundit, who has more alternative fuel reference materials available on his blog.

On May Day

If Lou Dobbs sees it, no doubt the rest of middle America will see it too. Yesterday, Dobbs wrote a column decrying radical groups' seizure of the immigrant rights movement. In it, Dobbs wrote:

[I]llegal aliens and their supporters' boycott of the national economy on the First of May is clear evidence that radical elements have seized control of the movement. The Washington Post, alone among national papers, reported that ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) has become an active promoter of the national boycott.

ANSWER, of course, was founded as a front group of the World Workers Party, a communist outfit that has gone on the record supporting the late Slobodan Milosevich and regimes in garden spots like North Korea. Thus, just like during recent war protests of late, there were many red Che Guavara flags interspersed in the May Day immigrant rallies as well.

Those who are fighting for citizenship or broader rights in American society should think twice before hitching their wagons to radical marxist organizations. Elections are decided by the overwhelming majority of Americans who sit out demonstrations like yesterday's May Day spectacle, and Americans on the left, center and right are traditionally hostile towards communists.

Sickblogging No More!

Hello Wilsonizer readers, and my apologies for the long absence. The entire family has been down for the count with a stomach virus, including Wilsonizer actual. I was too sick to do much of anything (except download and watch Battlestar Galactica episodes from iTunes!).

I am back in good form once again, so expect some good content to be landding on this site shortly!
