Guess What We Forgot?

Marc Comtois

With all of the election hoopla, none of us Anchor Rising contributors thought to remember that November 7 was the two-year anniversary of this blog. In the past year, I think that we've managed to pull at least a couple links of the ol' anchor chain out of the water. At the very least, our anchor weighing has caused at least a few ripples here and there (for example).

I believe that we have proven ourselves to be intellectually honest and responsible while advocating for conservatism in the arena of ideas. This has lent us a degree of credibility with other media outlets and, in turn, the increased exposure they have offered has allowed us to broadcast a conservative viewpoint to the broader public. Hopefully, we've opened some minds along the way.

But enough of the self-congratulation. The anchor still needs to be weighed. So let's get back to manning the windlass and keep cranking.

Aye, or it'll be no grog and forty lashes for ya'!

I was thinking more along the lines of having RINOs walk the plank, but I digress...

Congratulations on your two-year anniversary. In a state as politically backwards as many a third world country, let us be glad that there is a forum like this, in which conservative ideas can be discussed and dissiminated.

Indeed, let me lift a glass in your direction and thank you for this bastion of local sanity. Well done sirs, well done.

Congratulations to all. Two years is no small feat.

While I disagree with much that's said here, I appreciate and respect the forum. And I will defend your right to say it.
