Leftism Is Dangerous!

I'd met Mr Lefty briefly at a grogblogging and had a few minor arguments with him at his website. I can't say I agree with much he says - I'm an enthusiastic free market advocate, he favours some kind of variant of socialism where the free-market is allowed to exist, but feeds into a large public sector. Actually, the thing most irritating about his blog is the title - 'Anonymous Lefty'. A lot of blogs are political, but there aren't many blogs that go so far as defining their whole reason for being as political (not to mention aligning themselves with a particular type of politics).

But I hadn't thought there was anything particularly wrong with his blog - until today.



This is a screenshot from Lefty's website this afternoon. Note the google ads along the right hand side. Judging from the content of three out of four of the ads there, Mr Lefty is driving his readers to commit suicide!

Yes, there comes a time when you Google Adwords comes to be more trouble (some) than it's worth (absolutely nothing)...

I'd be interesting in attracting a few more suicidal readers to my blog. Care to lend me a few?

i see 2 problems with this post:

1. it shows you actually use internet explorer, and

2. you have the google taskbar installed!

so sad, so very very sad...

lgws said...

oh, and you also have TWO links for spelling, one called 'spelling' and one 'MACQ Dict'!

You're a sharp-eyed fellow, my friend. I use Mozilla on my own computer, but I took this screen shot on someone elses.

I think that a self-professed lefty has google ads is more amusing than anything

Don't say that! Mr Lefty has enough problems justifying his philantrhopical donations to struggling international entertainment companies!

I hope the funds that are coming from google adwords are going back into this large public sector fund and not into mr leftys pocket.

Wouldnt that be against socialism?

Maybe not, no, no, thats communism...

i admit i had nothing really positive to add to this conversation...r

Communism is such a harsh word for Mr Lefty. I think he prefers being called something nicer, like 'Nice State-based-economic-paternalist-not-quite-socialist', or something like that.

Not me, I just prefer calling myself 'Fuck-it-I'm-a-free-marketer' person and leave it at that. Less complicated.
