Today is the day to honor a few conservative bloggers with the humble Cry and Howl Conservative Blog Award. Participation was very low, if non-existent so I will choose whom I think really deserves recognition for the genuine patriotism illustrated by these folks. These are mostly bloggers who may not get recognition from the big shots but deserve to be up there with them. I’m stopping at around 12 sites this year.
First of all I’m giving this award to my very good friend John Liming. John has made an incredible transformation from being a pretty hard-core liberal (on some issues) to a genuine conservative. Regardless of his former left-leaning ideals he has shown remarkable patriotism towards America and as a veteran of the armed services his passion for the truth is unwavering.
One of my all time favorites, Earl of Taint. Conservative blogger and Photo-shopper extraordinaire. I’ve seen his photos over at the American Thinker and his stuff is funny yet strikingly accurate.
My dear friend Denise is one of the first bloggers I “met” years ago when I ran my old site Stevex09. She’s a wonderful, passionate conservative blogger whose work is featured over at the Watcher of Weasels site among others. My hope is that someday I’ll get back out to the east coast and Rini and I will get to meet Denise. I’ll buy dinner and we’ll all have great fun.
Prof X. is an old friend of mine. We first met quite a few years ago on the web-site Jib Jab. Back then it was a joke site, one where the members posted funny videos, word jokes, funny pictures, etc. It was a social site and everyone had their own page with what ever personal stuff you wanted to illustrate. I made a lot of friends there. Jib Jab finally shut down the joke section and transcended into a kind of greeting card site. It’s cool, but all the “Jib Jabbers” who participated left after the joke section folded. Prof X. is the owner of Partneringwitheagles site. A good friend and genuine conservative.
Next up I think the Angry White Dude very much deserves any and all conservative awards and the humble C & H award goes without saying. I don’t know the gentleman who owns the blog site but he’s a conservative Texan. I’ve visited his site quite a few times and can always count on reading a witty, well thought out take on about everything that I support. And the fact that he’s a fellow Texan … well, that does up the score for AWD.
Dan is a very talented conservative writer. On his ‘about’ page he has “contributed to Pajamas Media and Pajamas Tatler. In addition to my own blog, Dan Miller in Panama, I an an editor of Warsclerotic and contribute to China Daily Mail when I have something to write about North Korea.” Dan is a great guy to have on the conservative team!
My very dear friend Vanessa has been with ol’ Steve for a very long time. She is a wonderful Christian conservative and has the support of her lovely family. I’ve talked with Vanessa on the phone a few times and she is a tender-hearted woman who loves God, her family and America. Politics are just a part of Vanessa’s blog site. She is about family, friends, love, laughter and beauty, a thoroughly delightful blog! I’m honored to be counted as her friend and humbled that such a good person actually likes me. (She loves Rini too … but heck, everyone loves Rini!)
An awesome blog site which covers nearly every issue dear to conservatives and America loving people. The writer offers a down-to-earth, common sense take on issues that really need to be addressed in such ways, debunking the loony opinions of the left.
I don’t think “Starvin” accurately describes Larry. This guy knows hunting, fishing and survival. Conservative and insightful into the shenanigans of those within our corrupt government.
10) The Mad Jewess
My very good friend Paulette is the Mad Jewess. She is a firebrand for sure! I’ve spoken with her on the phone several times and I can’t help but love her and her passion for America and her fierce anger for liberal Jews. Paulette is an extremely talented singer/performer/artist and a no-nonsense lady who is fed up with the outrageous attacks on white people by illegal immigrants and low-life black thugs … all which go un-reported by the media. I’m still hoping to pay her and her husband David a visit when Rini and I head out to the west coast.
11) Lisa The Infidel
I don’t know the young lady who owns the blog site. I do know she is a patriotic American who stands conservatively on all the issues we’re concerned about. She visits C & H now and then and I’m always grateful for her comments.
12) Talk Wisdom
Christine Watson over at Talk Wisdom is a dear lady whose blogging friendship goes back … oh … about eight years, maybe more. She and I have experienced differences of opinions regarding Donald Trump’s run for president. Naturally, this has caused a division between us. Regardless of our opinions of Mr. Trump she is a staunch Christian conservative and her blog is an encouragement to all who visit. I count her as a close friend and love her as a sister in Christ. This list would not be complete with Talk Wisdom on it.
Actually folks, the list is far from complete with the few I mentioned here. In reality, I’m tired and the non-participation of the “public” kind of clued me in that it’s really not a big deal. Having said all that, for those who accept the humble award, post it on your home page. Have a great Sunday!
