Is Strong and Right...actually right?

Something seriously weird has happened at our old hangout Strong and Right. After mysteriously being offline for several days, the site has returned with a vengeance and a whole new attitude! I think it's a scary thing, personally. Let me put it this way: after reading its latest content, I almost considered nodding my head. Heavy stuff.

Whatever epiphany Carl P has undergone, I applaud his courage to embrace it. It must be seen to be believed. Personally, I think it has a lot to do with his recent well-written and thoughtful treatise on why evolutionists are mistaken. Something in that series of posts must have triggered the new style inherent in the blog. One thing's for sure: bloggery will never be the same again!

allow me to be the first to kiss your ass on a very nice idea :) i just hope you don't let social programs here on "Not Right..." go down the toilet. although i don't see how that could happen, since we should be out of "Stong and Right" in a couple months.

I would check with your lawyer if you can publish someone's picture without permission, especially since you have used his profile. That might cause you grief.

I doubt Carl P would be that petty.

What happened to the Rob Guillory's Freak Daddy column. I thought it was going to be there today.

So did Rob!

Concerning the parody: there's such a thing as "fair use" in media law; otherwise, every spoof and every reference to anything or anyone else would probably be a felony. If Carl wants me to remove the pic then I will do so as a courtesy. But as I recall, I have posted it before on this site and he himself has posted it on other sites. The only way any lawyer would take his case is if he could prove "actual malice," meaning that I put the picture there to inflict severe emotional distress. That rarely happens, and then only when someone is super-famous.

Besides, who in their right minds would sue a person too poor to pay damages. :)

Kyle said...

NO, No, Ian! Please leave the pic! I am not offended at all. In fact, I find it refreshing that sore loser liberals use my stuff in parody. I posted over on Strong and Right asking if you and I could get together in March. I will be in Galveston TX and was wondering if you would be willing to go to lunch, my treat. We all understand your fiscal condition. I am completely serious.

My dearest Icon:

I am leaving this great state this Saturday to move to the Houston area. Though I understand that I will be missed here, it is something I must do. I must make a bunch of money, become powerful, get into Congress, become President, and take over the world!!!!

Actually, if this just aids me in establishing a good living for years to come, I guess I'll just settle for that. And guess what, no state income tax!!!

Houston is SO much better that Lafayette. Better grocery stores, better restaurants. You have to go the PF Changs if you havent been there yet, HEB Central Market is an awsome grocery store. And Houston is just an hour from the beach.

Nick said...

Actually Manning, I'd rather stay in south Louisiana. However, my current job entailed be being in north Louisiana for about 1-2 yrs., and I hate it up there. Lafayette is better than Houston, or TX for that matter, IMHO. I just made the decision for financial reasons. As Icon likes to believe, I'm a greedy SOB who only thinks about myself and money.

Ian McGibboney said...

I have a saying about Houston: you're either too poor or too rich to leave it. You couldn't pay me enough money to live in the most polluted city in the United States. Except, like Nick so wisely pointed out, if my only other option was to move to (shudder) north Louisiana! Good luck, Nick; we'll miss you. You BETTER write! If I'd known you were leaving so soon, I would have stopped my truck beside you yesterday afternoon when I passed you running. See ya later, bro. It's been a blast.
