One million

I was just looking at my stats and noticed that sometime earlier today, HA recorded it’s one millionth page view since I started tracking with Site Meter back in September, 2004.

I’m not sure if this is any kind of a meaningful milestone, but I just thought I’d take the opportunity to say to all my readers out there, who for some reason keep coming back… um… thanks.

    O’REILLY ENDORSES TERRORIST ATTACK AGAINST U.S. CITY

    A couple days ago, Pat Robertson threatened to visit divine wrath upon Dover, PA for voting their Intelligent Design-supporting school board out of office.

    Another prominent right-winger has stuck his foot in his mouth. Bill O’Reilly said “if Al Qaeda comes in here … we’re … going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco.”

    He’s pissed at that city because they banned military recruiters from their schools.

    But that’s not all. O’Reilly is complaining that “far left internet smear sites have launched a campaign to get me fired … [for] encouraging terrorist attacks. Unbelievably stupid” and threatening to post “the names of all who support” these sits on his web site. Shades of Joe McCarthy waving a blank piece of paper!

    In other news, the Pentagon imposed a news blackout on today’s meeting between Donald Rumsfeld and Ahmed Chalabi, the discredited Iraqi trickster who fed a load of steer manure to the Bush administration.

    Rumsfeld apparently needed to get his intel updated, since the last load of intel he got from this guy wasn’t any good.

    “But I think 87,000 of those came from Roger Rabbit”

    Google suggests that Roger Rabbit only posted in 450 comment threads. My guess is that he averages 10 posts per thread. And we can double that number for previous names used by Roger Rabbit. So, that comes to about 9000.

    Yep…RR might be responsible for about 10% of Goldy’s comments. Congratulations to Roger Rabbit, too!

    Should you discount for when he just copies and pastes from his previous posts and/or from Lefty talking points websites?

    Yes, but the trends are some interesting. If you look at Stefans trend for the last 12 months, his readership has been falling, falling, falling (http://www.sitemeter.com/defau.....;report=36).

    Now, if you look at Goldy’s stats for the last 12 months, he has been growing, growing, growing (http://www.sitemeter.com/defau.....;report=36)!

    One million is a pretty cool landmark, but I definitely agree that the bigger celebration will occur when Goldy regularly gets more visitors/day than uSP.

    Mark @ 14

    Good questions!

    “But what about a multiple for the additional names Bunny Boy uses now?”

    I doubled the number for previous monikers. He has used Roger Rabbit for a long time–I believe for nearly 1/2 his time here.

    “And 10 per thread seems to err on the low side – especially when he gets into one of his rant-into-thin-air modes.”

    He may well post more than 10 posts in any thread for which he comments, but that is offset by 715 threads for which he did not comment as Roger Rabbit. I estimate that 450 of these are RR using another name, so 265 posts with no RR under any name.

    “Should you discount for when he just copies and pastes from his previous posts and/or from Lefty talking points websites?”

    My methods were much to crude for such refinements :-)

    Of course Goldy has gone up over the past 12 months – there is only one way but up from zero.
    In Sound politics peak month, it had 500,000 hits (down to 120,000 currently)
    . In HorsesAss’ case, the peak month of September had 75,000 (and has dropped to 35,000 since then).
    Both have trended down, but SP still has 3 times more visitors.
    I do not think the overtaking of SP by Horsesass will happen any time soon, somehow.

    “In HorsesAss’ case, the peak month of September had 75,000 (and has dropped to 35,000 since then).”

    Nope…you are misreading the last point—it only applies for 1/2 a month. Goldy can expect 60,000 to 65,000 visits for this month, continuing the overall upward trend (probably not better than the exceptional month of putting Brown down in September, but certainly much better than all months before September and a little higher than last month).

    Aussie Rob spews:

    dj @ 19 and Roger Rabbit @ 20,
    Perhaps I misread – I am tired. But then, the same methodology would apply to SP, so Roger Rabbit, you can scrap your 75%.
    BTW, if you look at the Sept-Oct span (last full month according to dj, SP actually increased, while HA fell).
    Either of you feel like a wager on who will have the most hits in the first week in January? Perhaps a beer at “Drinking Liberally”? (I will go anywhere for free beer!)

    “BTW, if you look at the Sept-Oct span (last full month according to dj, SP actually increased, while HA fell).”

    I was discussing “trend” which means looking at the long-term “performance.” Obvioulsy both blogs bounce up and down from month to month. The point I was addressuing was the trend over the last year for each blog.

    “Either of you feel like a wager on who will have the most hits in the first week in January? Perhaps a beer at “Drinking Liberally”? (I will go anywhere for free beer!) “

    Well, my prediction is that Goldy will have 62,000 and uSP will have 150,000 customers in January, so I guess that will not work out.

    But, Aussie Rob, you show up at DL and I will be happy to buy you a beer anyway. I show up most weeks.

    It would be interesting if Goldy could quantify both the hits and posts from his top 10 viewers & posters—-and then tell us what is left….
    Not much I fear.
    On a number of threads I went back thru and counted, the regulars and their fantasy names accounted for virtually 100% of the posts.
    People switching back & forth between various blogs also pads the numbers and is quite misleading.
    Frankly, all we have hear is a predominantly small group of 10 or so LEFTIST PINHEADED CLOWNS being challenged and educated by about a half-dozen folks who are always RIGHT.

    So will the Media do it’s job of holding those in power accountable???
    There is a clear record of all the representations made by the anti-912 crowd.
    Since the “newspapers” “did their job”, how are citizens to expect them to “do their jobs” in terms of holding WSDOT, Gregoire and ALL the anti-912 rhetoric accountable?????
    ANSWER—-
    It ain’t gonna happen!!!!
    Whenever loser newspapers like the P-I take a hard position on an issues as they did opposing I-912….do you really expect the P-I to admit they were WRONG or for the P-I to condemn any actions or inactions which are not part of the anti-912 rhetoric???

    Who is going to hold those in power accoutable????
    Will the Seattle P-I????????
    You’ve got to be kidding!!!!
    Ethically, the Seattle P-I should be reporting on the I-912 promises EVEN MORE than they did in proting the NO on I-912. Do you LEFTIST PINHEADED CLOWNS really want to know the truth as GasTax dollars are committed and spent????
    How will you know unless the newspapers disclose it????
    You CLOWNS are most comfortable when left to your own Fantasy Island!!!!

    On a slightly different topic — torture — I see in the news that U.S. soldiers are accused by Iraqi civilians of throwing them in a lion cage.

    “Iraqis Claim U.S. Soldiers Threw Them in Lion Cage
    “By LOLITA C. BALDOR, AP

    “WASHINGTON (Nov. 15) – Two Iraqi businessmen, who were imprisoned by U.S. forces in Iraq, claimed Monday that American soldiers threw them into a cage of lions in a Baghdad palace, as part of a terrifying interrogation in 2003.

    “‘They took me behind the cage, they were screaming at me, scaring me and beating me a lot,’ Thahe Mohammed Sabbar said in an interview. ‘One of the soldiers would open the door, and two soldiers would push me in. The lions came running toward me and they pulled me out and shut the door. I completely lost consciousness.’

    “The two men described the July day in 2003 when they were arrested by American troops with guns and armored vehicles. They said they were covered with plastic hoods and repeatedly struck by soldiers using the butt of their guns. They both described standing in front of a lion cage, and said they could hear other prisoners screaming as the metal cage door creaked open and slammed shut.

    “‘They threatened that if I did not confess they would put me in the cage,’ said Khalid, adding that the soldiers kept asking him where Saddam was. ‘I laughed, I thought they were kidding me. They asked where are the weapons of mass destruction. I was very surprised and I thought it was weird.’ But when he laughed, he said, he was only beaten more ….”

    “Both men said they suffer continuing physical and psychological trauma, such as pain, ulcers, nightmares and insomnia. Sabbar said he was held by U.S. forces for about six months, while Khalid was held for about two months.”

    For complete story see http://aolsvc.news.aol.com/new.....1409990001

    The two men have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government with assistance from ACLU and Human Rights First.

    Now watch the trollfucks (a) defend this as harmless psychological interrogation, and (b) attack ACLU, HRF, and Roger Rabbit.

    Mark, the “slippery slope” involves more than the use of barbaric interrogation tactics. It also involves rounding up hundreds or thousands of innocent people and torturing all of them in the off chance that ONE might know where the WMDs are. But the torture of Iraqi innocents produced nothing, because THERE WERE NO FUCKING WMDS!!!

    Congratulations, wingnuts, for staining the U.S. military uniform with the same odium that history has attached to the Nazi, Japanese, and KGB torturers of WW2 and the Cold War era.

    Washington isn’t the only state where the Rightwing Tax Revolt suffered electoral defeats on Tuesday. Voters rejected tax rollbacks in California and Colorado, too. In Colorado, Republican governor Bill Owens campaigned against the anti-tax measure, saying it would cripple state services. Now the rightys are calling Owens a “traitor” — but nobody is listening. In California, which has been in budget crisis ever since voters passed Prop 13, voters turned a deaf ear to The Terminator’s initiative to cut state spending further. In fact, they turned a deaf ear to all seven of Schwarzenegger’s initiatives, and the GOP’s newly minted Fair Haired Boy is sinking even lower in the polls than Shrub, if that’s possible.

    Several years ago, Washington voters defeated a rightwing attempt to impose a Prop. 13-style scheme on our state. Prop. 13 is one of the unfairest and most regressive taxes ever devised. It freezes property taxes at the level when the homeowner bought the house. Taxes are raised on the house when it’s sold. This results in grossly unequal taxation of similarly valued properties that discriminates heavily against the young and those least able to pay. For example, a homeowner who bought a house in 1975 for $150,000 that is now worth $1.5 million pays less property tax than a homeowner who bought a house in 2005 for $250,000, even though the first homeowner probably is older and has more income than the young homebuyer. Prop. 13 shifts taxes from the comfortably affluent to the young and struggling. Not surprisingly, the Washington initiative was floated by a homeowner enjoying life in what was then a $750,000 home (back when average middle class housing in Seattle could be purchased for about $150,000); but fortunately, Washington voters had enough sense to reject this piece of shit.

    If they hadn’t, we would have the spectacle today of people living in multimillion-dollar homes paying less property tax than young people moving into starter homes.

  33. 44

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    As it is, Washington’s property taxes are not proportionate to home values. If you live in a $250,000 home, you are not paying 1/3rd as much property tax as someone living in a $750,000 home. It’s closer to half. Just look at real estate listings, which usually tell you how much the taxes are on the property.

    I support equitable taxation no matter what assessment method is used. Taxes on a property with a fair market value of $750,000 should be three times as much as taxes on a property with a FMV of $250,000.

    This refers, of course, to the base tax. It’s reasonable to allow (a) voters to approve local levies on top of the base tax, e.g. if they choose to pay for extra school programs, and (b) tax breaks for limited income senior citizens, so they won’t be pushed out of their homes by property taxes they can’t afford.

    Joe @ 74 Your post was terribly good. It made no sense, and dripped with a cream sauce of whackery. I hope you are hearing good things from the voices in your head!

    Good Job!

    DAY 7—-IMPROVED TRAFFIC DUE TO GASTAX INCREASE VIGIL
    I am happy to report that since the GasTax proponents got their way defeating I-912 last week that traffic this past weekend actually got worse!!!! I was in Seattle Sunday & Monday and it was gawdawful!!! I saw lots of drivers BY THEMSELVES in their politically correct little cars with their Save the Earth bumperstickers sitting in mortal gridlock on I-5 and the AWV.
    I would expect the politically correct CLOWNS to set a much better example than that!!
    Some of them had pro-Mass Transit and “I Love Women with Hairy Underarms” bumperstickers too!!
    I love seeing the preachers of political correctness hypocritically contributing to the PROBLEM not the SOLUTION!

    I think you owe Mr.C a refreshment of his choice….

    His cut ‘n’ paste posts of identical messages to various threads must be contributing enormously to your site’s hit stats.

    For those ASSes who claim I don’t have original thought or I TROLL RIGHTY web sites, shove this up your ASSes! Fresh from the Washington Post this evening: – Woodward Was Told of Plame More Than Two Years Ago

    By Jim VandeHei and Carol D. Leonnig
    Washington Post Staff Writers
    Wednesday, November 16, 2005; Page A01

    Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward testified under oath Monday in the CIA leak case that a senior administration official told him about CIA operative Valerie Plame and her position at the agency nearly a month before her identity was disclosed.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/.....rss_nation

    Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Rove, said that Rove is not the unnamed official who told Woodward about Plame and that he did not discuss Plame with Woodward.

    I can hear it now; “Damn Rove gets away again!” Awww shucks lefties, you guys played your hand too early! So one prediction true and when DeLay gets off I’ll be two for two!

    Cross Posted in the other new thread!

    Wow the French are now putting black anchors on TV. How wonderfully “Progressive”!

    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11.....rance.html

    “The state-run television group has since embarked on a discreet affirmative action program, called the positive action integration plan, tailored to avoid transgressing the country’s rules against hiring on the basis of religious or ethnic origin.

    Because affirmative action on the basis of race or religion is effectively banned, the company keeps no records that could be used to accuse it of hiring people because of their origins. “We’ve never written it down anywhere that we hire on the basis of color,” Mr. Pellet said.”

    Wow France doesn’t believe in Affirmative Action. Hmmm…?
