RCAB: Linked to Rick and Alex

I wish to thank Rick of South Florida Daily Blog for adding RCAB to his Blogroll. I take this as one more harbinger that the end may be in sight. The end, of course, being an Obama presidency, which would make RCAB and all other blogs of a similar tendency obsolete (though they either do not realize it or won't admit it). The end also of a whole lot of other things more important than this blog.

Rick, in his former capacity as co-editor (with Alex) of Stuck on the Palmetto, is not a name unknown to our readers. Rick is the blogosphere's second most relentless critic of Babalú and may actually be the founder of the club. Although sometimes Rick and I have coincided in our criticism of Babalú, and on occasion he has even surprised me by taking an unexpected line of attack, sparing me the trouble of pursuing it myself, we nonetheless tend to approach Babalú from different if not opposite directions. Still, it is remarkable that Babalú managed to irk us both. No, it is not a sign of fairness on its part but of hubris. Its addiction to censorship, autos-da-fé and bannings transcends politics. In fact, it is the negation of politics, which necessarily involves more than one party or official ideology (in Babalú's case, the Human Pressure Cooker). Opposing Castro by aping his methods even without his power is not something that will promote the cause of Cuban freedom. Rick, too, is conscious of Babalú's hypocrisy in this respect but not sufficiently conscious of the hypocrisy of other bloggers who avail themselves of a democracy to defend Castro's dictatorship. Yet I have not given up the hope that some day he may see through their hypocrisy too. The only thing that's probably stopping him is his aversion to Babalú itself.

If this blog should close in January 2009 SFDB will be the place to see Val & Company put through their paces; not the same paces, mostly, that I would put Babalú through, but still a thorough workout for you who appreciate that as a sport (and many do). For those who want a more Tellechean touch, based on our common Cuban identity, there is Alex's Miami & Beyond, which will continue to monitor Val's Human Pressure Cooker, I am sure. I will devote a later post to the blog that most clearly mirrors my own thinking on Cuba and Babalú.

Today I am adding South Florida Daily Blog and Miami & Beyond to RCAB's Blogroll.

Now is the time for you to make an earnest appeal to the Babalunians to lift the ban against you. Beg, crawl and demean yourself as only you know how. You will need somewhere to perch if and when this blog closes.

No , thanks , no need to go there

What Republican influence are you talking about? All of the reforms proposed by the Republicans in Congress that were thwarted by the Dems? Is that the chart you mean, you fucking moron?

Manuel:

This is the second post you dedicate to perhaps the closing of this blog, but you have not answered my question, if you close it will you open another one? as I said before I need my daily fix.

Congratulations for the addition to Alex and Rick's blog, Babalunia must be fuming.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

I am merely laying the groundwork for a plane that I hope and expect will never land.

If it does, however, I have already prepared "The Best of Manuel A. Tellechea" blog, which I will launch on the day that RCAB closes. Collected there are all my previous writings in both newspapers and the internet.

I may also write a weekly newsletter to be e-mailed to faithful readers like yourself, tentatively entitled: "The Tellechea Report: Countdown to Armageddon."

MAT,
Miami and Beyond is a blog that cheers for Obama and the Left.
I am amazed that you would even think of linking to it. These are indeed changing times. Alex is a conceited bore who thinks the world started and ends with him. The mere fact that he cheers and is a BHO supporter should have diquelified him from being in your blog roll. But the I still do not understand why you link to that other blog from Rubber Head either. Strange times indeed.

Agustin Farinas said...

MAT,
I should have said: "Disqualified".

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

agustín:

A link is not a political endorsement or a nil obstat. It simply denotes that a given blog has something meaningful to offer in the linker's opinion. Both Miami & Beyond and SFDB are watchdogs of Babalú. As such they are doing a valuable service to the truth.

As for their support of Obama, it will become a moot question on Election Day if things go our way. If not, then all will be lost anyway.

Fantomas' blog is included in RCAB's Blogroll because he was booted and delinked from Babalú and RCAB has always provided a refuge for Babalú's outcastes.

Vana said...

Manuel:

Thank you, I was hoping you wouldn't leave us (me) high and dry.

Alex said...

Hey, thanks!

Alex said...

Agustin: I have linked RCAB since day one on my blog. It's not just our mutual dislike of Babalu's exclusive policies, boorish manners and support for the "pressure cooker", but that I find Manuel, despite our at times pugnacious disagreements, an interesting and erudite writer.

You can be an orthodox, Agustin, but you should not be exclusivist. Predilection for agreement is the mark of an interior intellect.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend?

How Sun Tzu of you.

Wisdom from a time when I wrote sayings for Chinese fortune cookies:

The enemy of your enemy need not be your enemy.

The water that flows under the bridge does not touch you.

MAT,
what is an interior intellect?
Something opposite to an exterior intellect?
