12/18/04 Insider Letter

*** Bob’s Insider’s Message ***

(Reprinted to Blog from email list on 12/18/04)

Looking back on the past year, 2004 has been an eventful one. From a rough start, we have put over 2500 copies of Why Johnny Can’t Think into circulation. While that isn’t a lot by publishing standards, it is quite an accomplishment for a small team of volunteers who didn’t know what they were doing. All of this is due to the efforts of WOL readers and my small team, and we haven’t begun, so to speak.
The internet has enabled many small operators to bubble up ideas that are beginning to crack the ice of the government/media monolith. The growing attempts to silence the BNP, Ernst Zundel, and others are signs of weakness. The establishment KNOWS these ideas are LETHAL to them. Why else would they be so concerned about the very small handful of people out there who are saying these things?

I’ve pointed out the many ways that Why Johnny Can’t Think is an ideal vehicle for attacking the left. None of them have to do with my own brilliance. I chose to focus on professors and the universities because they are the Achilles heel of the left. They are the root that keeps the malignant plant alive.

Not many people can or will go to cocktail parties and talk about “Jews” or “communists” because they don’t want to be treated like nuts. They don’t want to start conversations about the disaster in Iraq because some flag waving moron might clock them. They don’t want to talk about immigration because some bedwetter will start pissing and moaning or someone there has a Mexican girlfriend. But almost EVERYONE has friends or family tying up thousands of dollars in a college education.

It is much easier to inoculate a kid before college than to cure him after it. College professors can bully kids, but aren’t used to dealing with real criticism.

One of our next goals is to put together a scholarship contest for high school kids that will get the message to them. Not only will we get the message out to them, but we may discover the next generation of warriors to carry on the battle.

If anyone is interested in helping fund such a program, please let me know. I’m working with a non-profit organization to be able to take tax-deductible contributions for this program. If anyone is willing to help, please email me at bob@whyjohnny.com.

And don’t forget, there is still time to send a book to someone you care about before Christmas.

Board OP Commenter HTML Guide

Bob, you may ignore this post.
[Edit Date]

Commenters trying to use some of the listed HTML tags, read this.

The following line appears in the “Leave a comment” area:

Line and paragraph breaks automatic, e-mail address never displayed, HTML allowed:  <a href="" title="" rel="">   <abbr title="">   <acronym title="">   <b>   <blockquote cite="">   <code>   <em>   <i>   <strike>   <strong> {We’ve used ASCII code sets here to get the carets to “appear” for these instructions. The left-pointing “open” and the right-pointing “close” caret sets above the comma and period on your keyboard “disappear” on the blog page as they should when tags are constructed correctly.}

Of course, there are no instructions for you to know which or how to use “HTML allowed” to get the effect you want. That would help if you’ve never done it before.

Following is the Name/Meaning and Tag Word Sets this software uses:
Type the code word “on tag” and “off tag” around the text/words you want to be affected. The coding must have an “on tag” in front of the first word of your altered text, and an “off tag” after the last word of your altered text (the “off tag” adds a forward slash / mark in front of the same tag word used in the “on tag”). When using the " " quotes around URLs or any other tag attributes, be SURE you put both start and finish double quote marks around the text or URL.

a   link to – – – <a href="the full complete URL">TEXT you want clicked</a> — WhitakerOnline.org for what respectable conservatives will never say.  The other <a> attributes don’t appear to be allowed here.

b   bold   or
strong   – – – <strong>altered text</strong> — or, these tags <b>Bold</b> to get Bold words — either set will work — the developers prefer <strong></strong>.

em  italic  or
i  italic – – – <em>altered text</em> to see words you want to italicize or <i> & </i> to get Italicized words — either set will work — the developers prefer <em></em>.

strike – strikethrough – – – <strike>altered text</strike> to see words you want to strikethrough for whatever reason you want it to look like that. (?)

blockquote – – – <blockquote>altered text</blockquote> to get the indented long quote blocking as follows:

The one member of the Cabinet Bush is not even thinking of removing is Normal Mineta. His Japanese family got interned sixty years ago and he’s still got the grudge going. America is going to pay. He is the one who ordered the strip-searching of grandma and he is going to keep on ordering it.

To blockquote and italicize at the same time you type it like this:
<blockquote><em>altered text</em></blockquote>

The one member of the Cabinet Bush is not even thinking of removing is Normal Mineta. His Japanese family got interned sixty years ago and he’s still got the grudge going. America is going to pay. He is the one who ordered the strip-searching of grandma and he is going to keep on ordering it.

A few unknowns:

cite  attribute to tag words – – – never got it to work.  ?

code  – – – an HTML container element.  ?

abbr  abbreviate – – – never got it to work.  ?

acronym – – – gets you word mouse-over text for those who may not be familiar with some long acronym’s real word translations — hold mouse over the words NATO and ZOG:
acronym   – – – <acronym title=”North Atlantic Treaty Organization”>NATO</acronym> gives you:  NATO  or  ZOG

If you mess up on ANY PART of constructing a tag – it will show up on the blog page. If you mess up or forget to PUT ON the CLOSING tags, </bold>, bolding, for instance, everything following that point will remain bolded. Brave commenters have seen that already. Hope this helps – it may not be worth all the checking you do before you SAY IT. We don’t edit comments.
