I thought that the Other Saipan Blog was going to be Saipan's Right Wing Blog. Nope. Those guys have more of an independent streak that tends to lean kind of right when it is really windy; they're not truly Right Wing.
Island Crusader is Right Wing. Super Ultra Mega Vast Right Wing...but I won't say nut job. See? I didn't say it.
Let me get this straight (I'm going to paraphrase every single one of your posts into a single sentence): DC Democrats want to destroy our way of life because they hate us?
Hmmm....where have I heard that type of reasoning before? Let me see.....
Oh, I remember! The Bush Administration! The terrorists want to destroy our way of life because they hate us. They hate our freedom.
Do you think that equating DC Democrats with Al-Qaeda is going to make them (the Democrats, not the terrorists) more or less likely to want to work with the people of the CNMI?
That type of name calling is childish, immature, and gets us no where (note: I didn't actually say "nut job" above). Referring to "outdated and isolated" incidents when you know damn well that every "nightclub" in Garapan is a whore house is more than a little insincere, too.
I admit that your arguments are emotional and probably sound great to people out here with a distaste for the Federal Government, but how do you think you sound to someone that first hears about Saipan by reading a post on Daily Kos? How about when that person googles Saipan and finds Saipan Sucks? Don't you sound like one of the Saipan Pirates? Haven't you marginalized yourself by painting yourself into the Pirate (argh!) corner?
Sure, you sound great to the 30 anti-American people on Saipan that find your blog, but you sound like a total asshole (notice that I didn't call you a name, I just said that you sound like an asshole) to the rest of the world.
With that said, here are my suggestions:
1. You're not Ann Coulter. Drop the snark.
2. Stop the name calling.
3. Follow the money.
4. Research better. Don't use the local papers as a resource.
5. Don't mention the Pirates (argh!). If you mention the pirates, you lose. Talk about your Uncle Joe the farmer and Auntie Marie the nurse.
6. Don't attack people that are on your side (Cohen is a Republican).
7. Stop talking about American Samoa. If you read papers published elsewhere, you'd know that issue has already been resolved. They're not exempt. Get over it.
8. Offer a better solution.
And before this turns into attack the Saipan Blogger, keep in mind that this blog is more about posting pictures of Fotten Gaga models. I just throw in politics every once in a while so that lawyers from Guam can attack my personal life.
