The Larwyn Letter: Everything You Need to Know and More

BetsySews.jpg I'm ashamed not to have noted this before. Ann @ Just one minute is utterly correct:

You probably don't know this, but you should. There's this wonderful woman out there named Larwyn who has earned the thanks of conservative bloggers everywhere over the last few years. She sends multiple emails a day to the top 50 or so conservative bloggers highlighting what they need to know. Trust me - you'd be better informed reading her emails each day than if you read the entire New York Times. -- JustOneMinute: Should've Walked Before They Made Him Run
And so say we all. Two letters, three letters, sometimes more. Every day. I don't know how she does it. It's an honor to be on the list. An amazing and wonderful resource, our Larwyn. A citizen.

Larwyn, we who are about to blog salute you!

Hmmmph. What's a guy got to do?

Be a well known conservative blogger. I'm only a moderately well known conservative blogger, so I have no chance of getting her emails. :)

Blushing again!
When I saw the post by Ann on JOM linking the Barnett post, http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2008/06/on_dropping_shoes.asp, I sent a note to Dean "I'm blushing".

But I am thrilled with the graphic that Gerard has selected for me, and the designation of "citizen".

Only sent out the Dean Barnett post from the Weekly Standard blog http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2008/06/on_dropping_shoes.asp
as I had saved it to show my family who wonder WTH I am doing on the Internet all day and most of night:::laughing::::::: I knew that the Barnett post had the details I wanted when I heard Bob Beckel deny last night at ~8:32pm on FNC "Stragtegy Room" what he had said that early morning of June 3rd on Fox & Friends.

I wish I was capable of doing more and so frustrated with those who represent our current party, the REPUBS, that I would scream several times a day, except it frightens the dogs. And throwing objects at the theTV is out, not having the money to replace them. at minimum on a weekly basis. I work it off by collecting posts that speak to and for me and adding my simple, fractured English typo filled rants and inundating~ 120 inboxes just about every day.

Just about to close up shop for tonight when I read the terrific posts at American Thinker for Monday, J R Dunn is as frustrated as most of us, but he's written a great call to arms, hate to use his closing graphs, but will to get you enticed to read whole essay:

The final word we will give to William James, founder of the philosophy of Pragmatism. In his book Varieties of Religious Experience, James wrote of the "leap of faith": contemplate yourself trapped on a high mountain, facing a deep chasm, with no safe route back or around. Do you leap that chasm full of doubts and misgivings, overcome with fears that you'll fail, or confidently, convinced you can get across in perfect safety?

....The question answers itself. The next time you're tempted to believe that the future is written, and the words are uniformly black, think about that chasm, think about how you'd get across. Think about how a week is as long as a year in politics, and how we have many weeks to go. And think at last about how you may be taking the entire country across with you. Then make that leap.....Conservatives Must Not Practice the Politics of DespairBy J.R. Dunn.

The other contains information that I wish Kay Bailey Hutchinson had thought to use when she appeared on Fox News Sunday vs a DEM trying to justify the DEM NO ENERGY POLICIES, who wish to point finger at SPECULATORS as the only villian other than greedy evil OIL COMPANIES.
2) Speculation "Given the unchanged equilibrium in global oil supply and demand over recent months amid the explosive rise in oil futures prices ... it is more likely that as much as 60% of the today oil price is pure speculation," writes F. William Engdahl, an Associate of the Centre for Research on Globalization. According to a June 2006 US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations report, US energy futures historically "were traded exclusively on regulated exchanges within the United States... The trading of energy commodities by large firms on OTC electronic exchanges was exempted from (federal) oversight by a provision inserted at the behest of Enron and other large energy traders into the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000." The bill was signed into law by Bill Clinton, in one of his last acts in office. ..... Top 10 reasons to blame Democrats for soaring gasoline prices by William Tate

Dunn notes that the REPUBS refuse to fight back hard..
Democratic corruption and incompetence aren't limited to Washington. They're systemic. There's a wealth of material here begging to be used. The Democrats, two years ago, hesitated not a moment before branding every member of the GOP a mirror-image of Cunningham and Foley. Yet what do we hear about the Democrat's infinitely more deep corruption from the GOP? Absolutely nothing. To my knowledge, no Republican figure has yet made reference to last week's Great Jefferson Roundup. In an election year, this is either sheer cowardice or collegiality gone mad. Let's get those tarbrushes working -- this stuff is not going to make its way to the public on it own.

Loved that. A few years ago tried to get a little thing going where we would send our WHIMP SENATORS & REPS, Viagra coupons or small checks to purchase same to STIFFEN THEM UP!! . "Vile, smearing cracker (per Bob Beckel tonight) emailers do have a bit more freedom than bloggers::::laughing:::::::

In addition to her daily Herculean efforts, Larwyn is a class act to boot.

We may not always say it, but when all is said and done, Larwyn has done her bit to make the blogosphere a better place.

I got her email once or twice, but that's all. I guess my technorati rating took a nosedive...

Glad to know you're still on the list. I love seeing her stuff around!

Posted by: Obi's Sister at June 17, 2008 4:48 PM

Actually, I don't think it is anything like that. I believe that at some point in the past she had a computer meltdown and had to reconstruct the list as best she could.

As near as I can see some sort of internal rating system has nothing to do with it.

Posted by: vanderleun at June 17, 2008 7:01 PM

Larwyn is wonderful, and she once posted at my blog http://faustasblog.com/2006/12/what-does-britneys-nookie-have-to-do.html
I wish she would take me up on the blogging offer!

Posted by: Fausta at June 17, 2008 7:10 PM

I've made her list and I'm no A-lister... I'm simply grateful.
