    The 1000

    The 1000

    Sometime today the 1,000th User registered here.

    Exactly two months after registration opened with the move away from Blogger, and about six weeks after The 500.

    I haven’t forgotten about Phase 2, it’s just that things have been a bit busy.

    Thanks for signing on.  I’ll stop now, before I get all reflective, and stuff.

    So you want us to promote your blog. What’s it worth to you? 🙂

    I’m just trying to figure out why all my favorite blogs are run by lawyers. In the past, I’ve always been impressed by Shakespear’s view of lawyers so why the fascination with lawyers’ blogs?

    Tis a mystery.

    Between the sick feeling in the run up to and through the election in 2008, to attending the tea party rally on 9-12 in DC, was the birthing of my political awareness that what I was doing in the past was not enough if I wanted to preserve what I loved about this country. I was sick to my stomach about it …

    I still don’t remember exactly how and where I discovered your blog, but it became one of my daily “must reads” around the time of Scott Brown’s election. And that was the period that in the midst of despair that Obamacare passed, your blog and the response to get him elected gave me hope – we could fight back.

    We lost that battle overall (although we fought a good rearguard action), and we lost Scott Brown to a greater level of RINO-dom than I expected from him (but I always expected plenty), but you birthed an activist who learned what the left was up to (along with many other blogs I read), and made me proud to start dropping your and other blogs onto my personal Facebook page and let the world know I was fed up … and to my astonishment, discover some (not most) of my NE friends agreed that there were others out there willing to fight the fight.

    From there, I started researching and giving in $25s and $50s to primaries and main races all around the country. Not huge amounts, but enough so that I thought “if everyone else does what I am doing, we can make a difference”. And in 2010 we did. And then I said I was going to up my game even further … and I am doing that. And I stayed involved, through Wisconsin and other fights.

    And while I read and appreciate the many other sources (RedState, etc.), my two favorite blogs to this day for their personal, irreverent, intelligent style are yours and Mike Shedlock’s. You make the fight fun. Good spirits are important in battle, and we can’t survive on rage against the machine alone.

    I don’t doubt that one way or other I would be where I am today in fighting the good fight, but without a doubt one of the early generals that gave form to the rallying call I heard inside me, that started me from alone in a sea of liberal friends around me (argh), frustrated and attending a rally or two but without direction … to a more effective activist was the good Professor.

    Great job. Keep up the good work, you are making a difference – you made one here.

    PS– If I were to cite one other influence that everyone should read, go over and read about the Precinct Committeeman project at RedState under the blogger coldwarrior about how to take back the Republican party.

    Professor, I keep coming back because I’m expecting to find out that this site is some liberal experiment to see how many people will fall for the old “conservative professor from Ithaca” hoax:) In all seriousness, I visit every day (sometimes several times a day) to be educated. By a Cornell law professor no less! Great site. Thank you.

    I feel like a member of an elite unit within the Army of Davids! 🙂
