Tim Robbins: An Expert At International Relations, The Law and Counter-Terrorism!

Actor Tim Robbins, (left, dancing with his mother, Susan Sarandon,) blasted the US government's policy on terrorism saying, "You know, like we really shouldn't fight terrorists unless we are going to fight ourselves because we're the real terrorists." "Clinton lied about a blowjob, and got impeached by the media and Congress," continued the actor with a degree in Playing Make Believe from UCLA. "Waco was okay because... um, it just was. So what if the Clinton administration lied about using flammable tear gas that burned 76 people alive and so what if they attacked their own people on their own soil on the basis of false information. That's different. So what if Vince Foster wound up on a scenic overpass off of the George Washington Parkway with a slug in his head and all of the incriminating Whitewater papers came up missing, and so what if Ms. Clinton was found with over 400 personal FBI files of Craig Livingsone's ... that's different. They're not the Bushes and they invited us to parties. The Clintons made actors feel like smart people who are important." Robbins apparantly has secret sources that counter the 9/11 Report, "(Bush) got us into (the Iraq) war based on lies that he knew were lies." When a reporter asked, "How do you know that Bush lied intentionally about the war when there's no proof of that and everyone else - including the 9/11 Report- has reported that it was faulty intelligence?" Robbins replied, "Oh. I see. You're a Faux News reporter. I'm not going to answer your questions. Of course you believe the so-called 'professionals' you big Hitler. Well I refuse to answer you Ms. FAUX NEWS.. Ms., Ms., Ms., Pravda! Only Pravda was more honest than YOU'LL ever be!" Then new "CBS Evening News" reporter, Katie Couric asked, "Mr. Robbins, if you could be a flower, what flower would you be?" Robbins replied, "I'd be a daisy, of course. I big, pink, frilly daisy."

You don't have to ask Liberal Larry for permission to link to his blog. It is usually considered a compliment when someone links to another blog, especially if they share similar views.

However, the tricky part is getting Liberal Larry, or anyone for that matter to link to you. People are more liable to link to you if you basically are helpful and give them a warm fuzzy.

1) Post good comments on his website. Preferably ones that make him laugh. ;-)

2) Send him links to articles or events that will help him come up with more comical posts of his own. For example, if you see some crazy leftwing or rightwing thing in the news, send him the info and there is a small chance he can use it to make a funny point.

3) Mention his blog in your blog and encourage people to visit his.

4) Post some of his materials on your blog and make reference to them.

The point of all of this is not to become his blog pimp or blog whore. But bloggers thive on visitors. Nothing is more depressing for a blogger than to create a blog, write what they think is a great post, and then hear nothing but the sounds of crickets chirping as they wait in vain for a response.

So if a blogger sees that someone is helping them to get more traffic, they are usually willing to return the favor.

Also, you can make some internet friends doing this too.

As far as the trackback pings, I don't know how to do that for blogger. But you can link to him right now. Do you know how to do that? You have two unused hyperlink right now in your right margin. They look like this:

Google News

Also, you want to try to encourage people who comment on your blog to come back. When you are just starting out, you will have very few commenters. Respond to their comments. Commenters are just like bloggers. They love it when they get a response to their comments. Of course, when you start to get lots and lots of comments, you will not have the ability to respond to each and every comment. But that will come later.

Keep in mind that building a loyal readership can take time. If you go to the BlameBush archives, read some of his oldest posts. You will see that he had no comments for the longest time. His fan base built up slowly. It takes time and hard work. However, in addition to working hard, you can also work smart. As they say, "Work smarter, not harder."

Good luck.

I will do it. In fact, I'm going to add all of my favorite blogs this week sometime. I really appreciate your advice and your comments. This was kind of an experiment initially - to see if I could and would keep this up and to just let off some steam. Since I'm here practically every day, I will take your suggestions and getting more into it.
Thanks! And many more thanks for commenting!
