There is none.
Dawn and I had to attend a memorial service for the minister who married us yesterday - we were busy and sad - so I was unable to give Blogcritics the full attention it deserves. Interesting that on this particular day my pal Charles Johnson would choose to note the wildly divergent points of view on the site, in particular mike larkin's satirical piece of creative writing on the - shall we say - symbiotic relationship between GW Bush and Osama bin Laden.
While the satire is quite black, it is satire nonetheless and nothing different from what you might see on Saturday Night Live. It isn't anything I would consider censoring. I have only ever censored one post here, and that was in response to multiple complaints about the nature of a personal attack by one Blogcritic upon another, and I probably overreacted by doing so. By the way, the person attacked was not one of those complaining, much to his credit.
Is mike's post effective? If you are inclined to the point of view that the entire War on Terror is a political scam, then you might think it so. Whether or not it is effective, I disagree with its message and will now say so.
I am an independent and have never - as of now - voted for a Republican for president. I am socially liberal, am an environmentalist (in a moderate way), want to see some form of universal health care for all Americans (again, in a moderate way), but I am also all for welfare reform, am a fiscal conservative (throwing money at problems only works sometimes), am strongly pro-Israel, and am very staunchly in favor of the War on Terror and Bush's handling of the matter since 9/11.
Even more important than his specific handling of any given aspect of the post-9/11 world - which has inevitably suffered missteps along the way - I am philosophically in agreement with Bush's response to the attacks of 9/11 and what they (the attacks) say about our world, America's role in that world, and the mindset required to improve this world for ourselves and mankind in general.
