    I am just glad it is still avalible to us.

  • Average Joe

    Mr. Livingston,
    Once again, Congratulations on a job well done! Your work is truly appreciated by your liberty minded readers.

      Mr. Vigilant; Might you be the Stranger from Seattle or are you stuck in a closet elsewhere?Whenever I see others doing this name calling they usually have something to hide like that Larry Craig guy that was bashing all the gays with his rhetoric and legislation.Are you by chance one of those guys that go to outhouses along the Interstates and airports to tap toes with the guy in the next booth?Come on now be honest with me this time>

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

        jopa, it appears you have unintentionally revealed more about yourself then you may have intended? Oh well, too late now, the cat’s out of the bag…Btw, aren’t you late for your “anonymous-rondevouz”?

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “WTS/JAY,”

        IN THE EARLY STAGE OF OUR RELATIONSHIP YOU AND I “BUTTED-HEADS.” [Remember, you ridiculed me for knowing how homosex is utilized by heterosexual- and homosexual- homeless males for the purpose of obtaining easy cash for beer, cigarettes, narcotics and liquor]. BUT, CURRENTLY, YOU ARE NICE TO ME; I APPRECIATE THAT.

        I ALSO BELIEVE “jopa” IS BEING NICE TO ME BECAUSE HE REALIZES THE SALACIOUS THREAD-COMMENTARY ON 20-22 AND 24 NOVEMBER WAS NOT MY CREATION.

        WE ALL HAVE SEXUAL FEELINGS; AND IT WOULD BE FOOLISH FOR ANYONE TO BELIEVE Personal Liberty Digest IS THE ONLY SITE WE VISIT.

        MY POINT IS, “WTS/JAY,” I DO NOT LIKE YOUR RIDICULE OF “jopa,” BECAUSE YOU IMPLIED HE HAS SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE OF A “SEEDY” NATURE. “WTS/JAY,” YOU ARE A MAN WHO UTILIZES GAS STATIONS, FAIRGROUNDS, PARKS, ETC.; SO, WHY DO Y-O-U THINK “jopa” HAS KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU AND EVERY HETEROSEXUAL MALE ON THIS PLANET DO NOT HAVE? [In other words, "WTS/JAY," most straight males have unwillingly witnessed a so-called, "Larry Craig Moment"].

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

        CAH: MY POINT IS, “WTS/JAY,” I DO NOT LIKE YOUR RIDICULE OF “jopa,” BECAUSE YOU IMPLIED HE HAS SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE OF A “SEEDY” NATURE.

        CAH, i was responding to jopa’s attack on Vigilant, wherein jopa implied Vigilant has specialized knowledge of a “seedy” nature. He writes; Are you by chance one of those guys that go to outhouses along the Interstates and airports to tap toes with the guy in the next booth?Come on now be honest with me this time…why then do you not call jopa to account? As for my response to jopa, i merely accused him/her of projecting his/her perverted-nature onto Vigilant!

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “WTS/JAY,”

        YOU MISUNDERSTOOD MY POSITION. I AM IN AGREEMENT WITH, “jopa.” THAT IS WHY I SHOWED MY DISPLEASURE WITH YOU.

        “WTS/JAY,” WOULD YOU AGREE IT IS WRONG FOR A COMMENTER TO UTILIZE A SEARCH ENGINE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF FINDING “DIRT” ON ANOTHER COMMENTER? EVERYONE ON THIS SITE KNOWS I AM HOMOSEXUAL. SO, IF A CAUCASIAN MALE-SENIOR (WHO CLAIMS TO BE “CONSERVATIVE”) INTENTIONALLY OPENS-UP A LINK – WHICH CLEARLY INDICATES ADULT CONTENT – HE CAN NOT WALK AWAY AND REMAIN, “CLEAN.” HE MUST BE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT “X-RATED” CONTENT.

  • Doc Sarvis

    Quantity of hits I can believe. This site would not win on any substantive discussion criteria.

    • http://www.boblivingstonletter.com/ Bob Livingston

      Dear Doc Sarvis,

      You write: “This site would not win on any substantive discussion criteria.” And certainly not by anything you have brought to the discussions.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

      • Vigilant

        Excellent (and accurate) reply, Mr. Livingston.

    • Hedgehog

      Dear Doc Sarvis: The substantive discussion criteria on this website is just fine thank you, but it would be better if you, Eddie47d, Flashy, Karolyn and the rest of the Obama worshipers didn’t Bogart so much of the bandwidth.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “Doc Sarvis” – I STRONGLY DISAGREE; MOREOVER, YOU ARE BEING HYPOCRITICAL. YOU PARTICIPATE ON A DAILY BASIS.

      Personal Liberty Digest DID NOT CREATE THE RULES ON HOW WEBSITIES EARN MONEY. SO, “Doc Sarvis,” YOUR “Quantity of hits,” COMMENT WAS BEYOND SILLY.

      • Vigilant

        Nw that’s what we like to see: a pervert disagreeing with a liberal.

      • jopa

        Christopher Allen Horton; The moment I read your first comment I knew this site would skyrocket in the ratings.Your daily contribution are now being read in 146 countries around the world and the whole world is smiling down at you.Keep up the good work my good man and before you know it you will be read in all 196 countries of the world.I don’t know why but for some reason PLD claims it is not being read on the Internet in 50 of those countries or maybe they just omit Bens piece in those countries.That’s where I came up with the 146 number on one of Bens skits.

      • Vigilant

        Will miracles never cease? For the first time ever, I agree with jopa!

        I entirely agree that Horton should post and re-post at every opportunity and then some. The more he opens his mouth the more he demonstrates his utter idiocy.

        Jopa, how does it feel to be in bed with an anti-Semite and admitted white supremacist? If you don’t believe me, just go to http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Profile?oid=13052832

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “jopa,”

        YOU ARE FORCING ME TO DEAL WITH AN ISSUE WHICH I PREFER TO IGNORE – BUT, I WILL “DEAL.”

        YOU TYPE [sic], ” the ratings will skyrocket because I am in this thread.” WELL THEN, “jopa,” WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS TRUE? – WE KNOW THE ANSWER: RACE AND SEX. E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y KNOWS White Folks CONTROL THE WORLD. SO, PEOPLE SET-UP THEIR VALUES AS REPRESENTATIONS OF “WHAT CAUCASIANS” ADMIRE.

        SINCE MY ARRIVAL ON 6 JUNE 2012, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN [AND, FOR SOME STILL] DEBATING MY RACE. HERE I AM – A DARK-SKINNED NEGRO MALE BORN IN RURAL MISSISSIPPI, A HOLDER OF A GRADUATE DEGREE, AN ATHEIST AND HOMOSEXUAL. THIS DESCRIPTION “TEARS-DOWN” EVERYTHING CAUCASIANS [AND VIA, ADMIRATION, THE ENTIRE WORLD] BELIEVE TO BE TRUE ABOUT NEGRO MALES. I AM SUPPOSED TO BE DEAD [OR, IN JAIL] – NOT, PARTICIPATING ON A CONSERVATIVE WEBSITE.

      • Vigilant

        See what I mean, jopa? I rest my case.

      • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

        CAH: “Doc Sarvis” – I STRONGLY DISAGREE; MOREOVER, YOU ARE BEING HYPOCRITICAL. YOU PARTICIPATE ON A DAILY BASIS.

        So do you, CAH. Btw, define “participate”!

      • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

        “WTS/JAY,”

        “Doc Sarvis” MADE THE “SLICK” COMMENT THERE IS NO DISCUSSION OF “SUBSTANCE” ON THIS SITE; HE IMPLIED THE ABUNDANCE OF LINK HITS IS DUE TO “FOOLISH FOLLY.” SO, I “CALLED Doc Sarvis OUT” BECAUSE THERE ARE SEVERAL EXAMPLES OF HIM “SPLURGING” ON FOOLISH FOLLY.

    • angelwannabe

      DS Lol__you libs crack me up!!!_For someone who doesn’t like it here, you and the other liberal ladies add nothing but disruption, which does no good__ and still Bobs No. !__How do ya like that crap? :) Go Bob!

    • http://gravatar.com/bychoosing WTS/JAY

      Doc: Quantity of hits I can believe. This site would not win on any substantive discussion criteria.

      When someone succeeds, do you feel cheated in some way, Doc? Or resentful? Or just jealous? Do you define your own ideas of success by the actual success of others? You seem to me a very resentful and unhappy person, Doc.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    CONGRATULATIONS – Bob Livingston, Robert Ringer, Ben Crystal, Dr. Michael Cutler MD, John Myers AND Sam Rolley.

    ALTHOUGH I HAVE NOT READ Mr. Ringer’s WORK – “LIVE” – SINCE MY ARRIVAL, I HAVE READ HIS WORK VIA, Archives. AND, I READ Dr. Cutler’s WORK AT, EasyHealthCareOptions.

    Mr. Livingston, Mr. Crystal, Mr. Myers AND Mr. Rolley – THE FOUR OF YOU ARE THE “REAL MEAT-AND-POTATOES” WHICH KEEP READERS “COMING BACK FOR MORE.”

    ENJOY YOUR SUCCESS – IT WILL NOT BE SHORT-LIVED.

  • dan

    Being a libertarian is like being a Vikings fan
    (if I were to admit to being a fan of anything)….extremely frustrating…
    but you guys make it a bit easier

  • angelwannabe

    Awesome job Bob, saw this on facebook__Congrats! :)

    Personal Liberty Digest™ was recently ranked No. 1 among libertarian websites by Patrick McEwen’s Top Libertarian, a website dedicated to shining light on the top libertarian links, tweets, websites, Twitter accounts and Facebook pages.

    We should express heart-felt thanks to the “radical-progressives” who flock to this site like bugs attracted to “the light”. If it weren’t for their daily participation and continual commitment to this site, i fear that perhaps we would be lower on the list. Thank you “progressives” for your generous support and for your tireless contribution in making this site NUMERO UNO! We couldn’t have done it without you!!!

    Congratulations, Mr. Livingston; rather then their intended wish to cause you harm and pray for your failure, your enemies and detractors have spent their energies and resources in catapulting your site to a #1 position! With that in mind; could success taste any sweeter?

  • Right Brain Thinker

    Let’s see, a website launched barely a year ago by an “aspiring” libertarian political writer and analyst ranks the top websites offering information about libertarian issues “based on unique visitor and page view Web traffic”. And PDL comes out on top and PDL crows about it? How nice. Sounds a bit like a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” deal. I’ve been looking at web stats and conservative and libertarian “rankness” (OOOOPS, I meant “rankings”), and there are a lot of different ways to look at the data. Is someone cherry picking? What does “ANALYSIS” of the data on the other web tracking services tell us?

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “Right Brain Thinker,”

      I DO NOT LIKE YOUR COMMENTARY.

      FIRST, I WANT TO TYPE THIS ABOUT CAUCASIAN SENIORS. I COULD BE WRONG, BUT, I BELIEVE THERE ARE MORE CAUCASIAN SENIORS ACROSS THIS COUNTRY WHO LISTEN TO TALK RADIO INSTEAD OF, PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE DISCUSSION. AS A FORTY-SIX-YEAR-OLD, I SEE TWO TYPES OF CONSERVATISM. ONE TYPE IS THE “BUILT-IN” CONSERVATISM WHICH ACCOMPANIES AGING – REGARDLESS, OF POLITICAL AFFILIATION. THE OTHER TYPE OF CONSERVATISM IS BASED ON DEVELOPING THAT TYPE OF IDEOLOGY, REGARDLESS OF AGE. SO, “Right Brain Thinker,” PEOPLE WHO HAVE “NATURALLY” CONSERVATIVE VIEWS BECAUSE THEY ARE SENIORS ARE MORE LIKELY TO LISTEN TO TALK RADIO – NOT, PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE DISCUSSION. SO, THIS PHENOMENON HAS AN IMPACT ON THE LEVEL OF CONSERVATISM EXPRESSED ON SITES LIKE, Personal Liberty Digest. MOREOVER, YOUNG PEOPLE – IN THIS CASE, MIDDLE AGED – ARE THE ONES WHO PARTAKE OF THE VARIOUS ENTERTAINMENTS OFFERED BY COMPUTERS.

      SO, THIS “unique” WEB TRAFFIC IS CREATED BECAUSE COMPUTERS ARE LIKELY TO BE ENJOYED BY A DIVERSE GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE EDUCATED AND LIVE IN URBAN AREAS. HENCE, INCREASED WEBSITE RATINGS ARE DUE TO CAUCASIAN SENIORS HAVING THEIR FIRST EXPOSURE TO “URBANITES” WHO WERE NOT RAISED TO GO TO CHURCH, ETC.
