This week’s edition of “Adopt a Conservative!” includes highlights from a post by TheLiePolitic.
I Digg. Do you?
Talk about a mission field….or is it a minefield instead? While I sometimes grapple with the importance of the social networking site Digg, I came across Digg A Conservative Or Moderate Article TODAY! How To Support Your Ideals!
I do want to say that I thoroughly enjoy Digg and sometimes spend way too much time on it. However, I’ve come across some excellent stories and posts, and met some good virtual friends as well!
Here’s some highlights from Digg A Conservative Or Moderate Article TODAY! How To Support Your Ideals!
Digg is one of the most powerful websites in the world. People wait daily for the next big Digg and will jump on new articles that make the front page (lovingly referred to as the FP by Digg fans) to get into the craze of reading and Digg-ing the latest and hottest article.
Digg presents articles in all possible categories. Computers, science, personal interest, you name it!! And regardless of what anyone tells you, it is a sensation and absolutely enormous. According to Alexa, Digg.com is ranked the 248th web site in the entire world. It is hard to fathom that number, but that places it ahead of cnbc.com, and it dwarfs competitive sites like reddit.com at 3831, and showhype at 5338.
For a site to make it under 1000 in the Alexa rankings places it in the elite company of sites like ebay, amazon, and yahoo. We realize these leaders are well ahead, but Digg clearly has power and is getting stronger. How much does it mean to an article that receives Diggs? Getting an article to the front page on Digg has been known to generate so many hits that it often brings sites down because they just can’t handle the traffic.
Now why, if you are a conservative or moderate, should you care? Because Digg has made an obvious statement, and they clearly have a liberal, if not radical, political agenda. They are as left wing as any web site can be, and have chosen to spotlite outright political lies and shine a beacon on them to blaze a trail for the liberals to blindly follow.
Be sure to read the full post here. There’s some important information about the steps, you as a conservative, can take.
Do your part America. Let the liberals know they don’t own the web. They just think they do.

A great resource for not only specific prayer for our president and president-elect, but for finding the wise words of past U.S. presidents and government officials is The Presidential Prayer Team site. Whether you choose to pray by the recommendations of this online ministry or not, you’ll find a tremendous wealth of quotables here. You’ll also get a heads-up on daily and weekly itinerary for government officials.
I thought this quote found at The Presidential Prayer Team site was especially timely and encouraging.
We observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom – symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning – signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.
The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe – the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.
—John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Speech, January 20, 1961
In an “ah-ha” moment while reading through a couple Psalms the other night I realized my help does not come from a $700 billion bailout. Then, I understood that there absolutely was a reason for that pastor to have been hammering out a point in that sermon long ago or maybe not so long ago.
Hope you have a chance to visit my devotional blog where my “revelation” is posted. At the time of this writing, stocks were down 300 points…so, from that end, the news is not great. But we can find hope in something else besides a bailout.
Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. – Psalms 124:8
