Ok,

You have made several serious errors in your analysis of my personality.

1. I am not "Very rightwing". I am moderate, possibly somewhat socially liberal, however, I am fiscally responsible. Also, I have known to be somewhat philosophical and highly analytical.

2. I am not sure what a dhinger is. It seems to be a somewhat negative term, based on context. I do not suspect that this word, dhinger, describes me very well. I am unable to comment further without understanding the definition of this word.

3. I prefer the term "self-sustained" to the term "non-maintained" as a descriptor of my blogs. Please try to be more open-minded. All of the closed-minded and judgemental people in our society perpetuate a lack of acceptance of the new ideas and individuality, and thus, slow our rate of progress.

4. I do not just like beer. I love beer.

5. I do not hate cops. I dislike the way some cops act.

-BM
