Cease And Desist Cartoon!

I thought this illustration was perfect in portraying the accusations by John Smithson of The Midknight Review against myself and this site.  Smithson had repeatedly attacked this site, making false accusations and outright bogus claims, and had recently stated that he was going to mail a "cease and desist" to me because my website's name is similar to his, sharing fourteen letters of the alphabet.

He also believes my articles are a riff on his own, which is completely outrageous, especially considering I had written an article about McCarthyism on April 14th and then coincidently after my post, five days later on April 19th, Smithson had a similar article, although he had taken it into a radically different direction, but you don't hear me crying plagarism.  I guess I should be flattered that Smithson uses this website as his muse.


  1. Kevin, that last paragraph is an outright lie. "Why do that? What you do for folks like me, when you present untruths such as that last paragraph, is to confirm the fact that libs willingly use the doctrine of ends and means.

    At the top of your blog you seem to have an ad supporting Barbara Boxer. Did I misunderstand? If that is a correct understanding, you are no "moderate Republican."

  2. You claim my last paragraph is a lie, yet you have stated in articles on your website that I plagiarize my website and had gotten the idea for my site from yours. My mention of the coincidence that your site just happened to have a McCarthyism article just days after mine was to illustrate a point, which is that the appearance of your article was nothing but a mere coincidence, and not an act of plagarism, although one could not be certain of certain of this, and so all I would have to say to that, and I quote you, "prove me wrong."

    As for the Barbara Boxer advertisement, obviously you do not understand Google advertisements, which use algorithms based on article content. These algorithms are not completely intuitive, and so should they notice a large usage of political keywords, such as "Democrat" or "Republican," a political advertisement will appear.

    If you haven't noticed, which I'm sure you haven't, my site also gets ads for things like petitions against Obama and Bernanke from, which claim their mission is to "promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity."

    How about the ad for Ann Coulter's book?

    If your determination of my political status is based on advertisements, then it looks like your 1-2.
