trollyate? I love it! Can I be trollyate? That sounds like a lot more fun than being me. Actually wait, how is being trollyate different from being Oyate? I'm pretty trolly as it is.

The last troll we had around here was great. Lucky Red. And then there was Max Woody Media Ochre Mogul. Who wasn't so much of a troll as he was just really really DIFFERENT.

Overall I just have to say the level of trolldom or trolliness on this site has gone way down hill. We're just not attracting the kind of high-quality trolls we used to. And I don't think it's an editorial problem, nor do I think the quality of reporting here is diminished. The reporting I think is very well balanced thanks to people like Arclein and even our own Frosty Woolridge and Denninger and Mish et al. And Farmwars. Ideologically we have a stick in every fire, a base in every camp but we don't have quality trolls.

And if nobody else comes to lampoon us, I have to because there is one thing I absolutely demmand: I am so not down with a movement that has to take itself seriously 100% of the time. I demmand 1% of the time to just have a good time. At least 1%. Because you know what being 100% sure of yourself all the time makes you?

A big fat dope.

Folks this is the real Oyate, not the imitator, but when you do your flag processions and your honour guards, have you buys looked in the mirror lately? Can we use the word "portly" or "jolly" or would that be hurting your feelings?

And I want to know one thing. Why for once can't we play the national anthem with kazoos? Is there anything in the Constitution against the use of kazoos in solemn ceremony? Why? Tell me why. Right now elders. Give me one good reason why kazoos cannot be used. And if you really want to get started, why can't I wear my breech-clout to patriot gatherings? I demand to know why I have to submit to your Western principles and be clothed at patriot gatherings.

See, young oyate, this is how you cause a fuss in patriot circles. You can't do anything by halves, you have to totally commit. As your elder, I just spent some of our remaining credibility to show you how it is done. Now you take the rest and spend it. But remember it's always about misdirection. Distract them with a story while you get the bucket of ice water ready. And be ready to run like the wind. And be ready to fail. I have at best a one-in-ten hit ratio.

On bad days we get our asses kicked. On good days they just ignore us. Oh and another thing, you have to learn how to sing in 3 different languages. Because this is our primary means of protection for the people, for Oyate. And it is not all biting humour and judgement, every now and then you have to tell them you love them. Because they are His people and the sheep of His pastures. All of them are. All are Oyate.

 Bless you little, the new oyate.

Guys, for anyone following I just called Powell and Ernie and let them know that there are in fact 2 Oyates posting. The real fun part is if I hand't told them, they would have assumed that this is just another one of my sneaky mind-games I throw at people. Because I can't resist a good practical joke.

But this time I am being pranked. And I don't know where this leads because Ernie and Powell know what's going on and these guys are pro pranksters and who's gonna out-prank who now? Ernie and Powell seem to think I should just run with it and that's my instincts too. So the world gets to see two Oyates.

I keep trying to think what the utility of discrediting Oyate would be. I carry no office for the movement at this time. And I'm not particularly liked or admired. I figure one out of ten patriots can understand where I'm coming from and everybody else thinks I'm an idiot. I mean seriously, you want to be Oyate? Because I'm telling you, very few people even want to KNOW Oyate much less be one. You so do not want to be me dude. Trust me, get out of the Oyate business while you still can, it's a horrible lifestyle full of pain and sadness.

OMG here it is again, guys, Ernie, Powell, this isn't me. There are two Oyates posting here. I'd call this a security flaw but I'd also call it pretty damn amusing. I'll ride with it if you guys want to. It really ain't doing me much harm.
