Is it just me or ....?

Are a lot of people spreading nasty rumors about me on Twitter?

And do I really look that bad in the video?

Funny thing is, people are always saying bad things about me on the Internet, and I could always use more back-of-the-head hair on my videos (and less midriff in the winter), so damnit!  This constant stream of messages IS hurtful!

(sniff)

Seriously, is it just me?

The two most popular types of "politics" I can discern on the American internet, especially youtube and reddit - big indicators of "trends" is the right libertarian "Ron Paul" ideal and the democratic socialism lite left wing "progressive" politics - both hate your ideas and evidence.

The non-interventionists are obvious, but the left wingers see almost no difference with your ideas and the neo-cons. They somehow think that "peacefully" protesting in front of Sudanese mercenaries is an effective means for change.

Meant it as a joke, but now I am beginning to wonder. I do get these Tweets all the time (Somebody is saying something bad about you + HOTLINK, You really look bad in this video + HOTLINK). They always make me laugh because of the points I made in the post, so I'm always like, "Yeah, but what can I do about it?"

I was just curious how pervasive this spamming was...

Thought the picture was cool, though. Got it on "Thomas P.M. Barnett" search, but it's a Hungarian pol. Neat resemblance, though.

I'm not sure why anyone pays any attention to Twitter in the first place. Uncle Sam taught me to be brief, but that doesn't mean every thought has to fit within 140 characters!

You reminded me of a '50s b movie about H. P. Lovecraft. With the red lighting and poor video there was a resemblance.
