Lets consider this an open letter to the No Left Turnz family..
By the time you read this message, we will be on our way to the Caribbean for a well-deserved vacation. I would like to say something to all of you in the interim..
No Left Turnz has been alive and kicking for about one year. Wonderful things have taken place in that one year’s time, things that I would have never thought possible and I can’t thank you enough for being such an integral part of it.
I would have never imagined that there would be so many subscribers to No Left Turnz. The fact that so many of you want to read the articles on this site makes me concentrate all the more on making each and every article the best that it can be.
We have a number of exceptional people who comment and add so much to the exchange of ideas within No Left Turnz. I read each and enjoy each of them knowing that I learn something from each of your posts.
While I am away, I have just a few things I would like to ask of you..
The next article probably won’t be on the site until about November 2nd or so. In that time, please continue the dialog. Talk about the news. Continue the fight. Encourage each other to keep pushing because the opposition will be doing the same.
The problem is that their arguments aren’t based on either logic or common sense. Lacerate the liberal illogic. Talk to each other here and tell the world to join us. Actually, don’t leave them any choice..
Here is an important note: If you are a FIRST TIME COMMENTER or if you put links into your comment, WORDPRESS puts new commenters and linked messages into a file that I have to approve. I won’t be able to do that until November 2nd. This is WordPress’ policy and I can’t change that.. Believe me, I am not ignoring you. I just won’t be near a computer until then.
Another note for SUBSCRIBERS: My subscription notification service is sometimes a little dicey.. I would suggest that after early November, if you don’t receive a notice telling you that a “new article has been posted” in your email box every two days or so, log onto http://www.noleftturnz.com and check the home page because that has been about the pace that these articles have been going out as of late..
While we are away, I would ask that you dig deep into No Left Turnz. There are over 100 articles on the site that can be referenced by the month on the right side of the home page. There are some real gems out there in the archives. I recently read the articles from when Hillary and Obama were just getting started in their respective “sham-paigns”. (Quick NLTZ joke: What will Obama be drinking if he and the ACORN slugs manage to steal the election? Sham-pagne.. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) It’s kind of interesting to see how it is that we have gotten to where we are. Baseball fans, when the World Series ends, check out, “Let’s Play Two.” “A Day at the Fair” takes a look at the “Fairness Doctrine”. “Grim Fairy Tales” and “Alternative Reality” weighs in on the enviro-whiners and alternative energy. “Yearning Versus Earning” takes a long look at the “bad loans” before the veils had been lifted. “Vacation Ruminations” is a few thoughts on some of the observations from last years vacation, who knows what this year will bring.. Just have some fun reading them because I had a lot of fun writing them.
Go ahead and click on to the “NLTZ Thought of the Day” tab on the right side of the No Left Turnz home page, too. As opposed to saving all of these thoughts for “Lagniappe” articles, I just decided to create this page for some quick hitters. Keep in mind that if you want to subscribe to “The Thought of the Day” it is a separate subscription that you can find at the top of the “Thought of the Day” page.
Tell me what you think about the pages. Tell me what you think would make the sites better. Your opinion matters here.
I would also like to ask that when you visit any other conservative web site out there on the web, would you kindly put in a word (and a link 🙂 ) to No Left Turnz for me? I spend a considerable amount of time going to other sites, commenting/contributing and then inviting others to be a part of No Left Turnz. I will need some help with this while we are away…
Due to the invaluable help and guidance of Dr. Gene Ciliberti, I have another announcement:
The No Left Turnz book, “Navigating the Liberal Labyrinth” will be available starting in about mid-November.
I will be posting either a tab or a link on the No Left Turnz homepage with all of the pertinent information as soon as it is available. Let me know just how many of you would be interested in the book so that I can notify the printer as to how many copies I will need to print.
“Navigating the Liberal Labyrinth” is the “unedited” or the “directors cut”, if you will, collection of the early No Left Turnz articles. No holds barred, extra thoughts that ended up on the cutting room floor… Here’s how the writing process works for me. I’ll sit down and type out the initial article, read it through, make a small tweak or two and then I send it to the web site, warts and all. A day or so later, I will give the article another read, refine it a little, add another thought or two or three and these are the versions of the articles that will appear in the book. I’m already in the works for a second, yet unnamed No Left Turnz book.. Anyone have an idea for a working title?
I am asking for all of your prayers relative to December 1, 2008. This could be an incredibly important moment in the life of No Left Turnz and I will let everyone know the details and the specifics as soon as possible.
Once again, thank you for making the dream that was No Left Turnz into the reality that it has become.
