I don’t know if you readers have noticed or not, but I finally decided to take advantage of having ads on here. So far, I am learning the ropes and figuring out things one step at a time. It’s cool, but the process itself has led me to ask a few questions. Any fellow computer geeks out there, please feel free to help out one of your fellow bretheren.
First question is, why are all of these conservative Republican ads being placed on here? I have seen ads for both Newt Gingrich and Ann Coutler’s blogs on this site. I literally have nothing in common with that dork with his 80-pound head, nor or that blonde, hate-filled stick figure who shares his political ideology.
I vote DEMOCRAT. Unless the Democrat is a screw-up. Then, if there are no decent independants, I just don’t vote. I have never trusted a Republican politician in my life. Not to say that they are all evil…but the bad apples among you all ruined the bunch in my eyes. Besides when I hear the term conservative, it makes me ask the question “What exactly is it that you are trying to conserve?” As a people, the outlook has been pretty bleak for black folks since the day our ancestors ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time back in Africa and got an all-expense paid, one-way boat trip to the cotton fields of America. If anything, history makes me want to strive for the improvement of the quality of life of Americans as a whole. It makes no sense to just conserve the status quo for the benefit of those in power, unless you’re already one of those people. Oh yeah, Ronald Reagan was a motherf*cker.
Sorry. That last sentence was a bit much. I just typed it to piss off Ann Coutler if she should happen to someday read this.
Question 2 for the webmasters: How can I control what shows up here better? I don’t want people to keep seeing ads like the ones mentioned earlier and think that I’ve completely sold out. Likewise, I don’t want a bunch of ads for Black Tail magazine showing up on here either. Not that I have a problem with Black Tail. I just think it would be innappropriate since a lot of people read my blog at work. I don’t want anybody getting fired over a big ol’ booty with airbrushed out stretchmarks popping up on the screen when they visit my site.
Question 3…The most important question…Which is, can I count on you readers to click on these ads when you stop by here? You don’t have to do it every single mother-loving time that you visit the page. Just enough to put some money in my pocket and keep me from turning to a life of crime. Or from selling out. Let me break it down for you, mathematically:
You + Clicking the motherlovin ads = Money for me
Money for me = Me eventually being able to quit picking digital cotton for corporate America
Corporate Emancipation = Writing full-time
Writing full time = WAY more funny stories and a better website for all to enjoy
So you see, clicking the ads is a beautiful thing. Plus, if it’s something cheesy, you can always hit the “Back” arrow in your browser and return here after you see what it is that folks are trying to sell you. Hell, you can go to Ann’s page and call her a blonde, bowlegged motherf*cker, then let her know that Leon sent you! The possibilities are endless!
So click the damned ads. Thanks.
P.S., I have nothing personal against MOST Republicans. I just don’t agree with you all. We can still be friends :)
