I’m Famous!

Yippee! That is what I live for. It is the embodiment of my entire being. It’s what I was put on this Earth to do.

Seriously, though. I was in a chat-room on ‘Liberty Chat’ today, it’s special guest was Dr. Thomas Woods and the host was Scott Horton. The chatting was nice, as was the on-air discussion, but a few things caught my attention (other than the crickets).

First, there were a few people that recognized my name from around the web. This isn’t surprising for me, in the past few years I have been pretty adamant about using my own birth-name during my internet travels (out of principle, but mostly for consistency), so the fact that people recognize my name isn’t strange to me, I post comments on the same sites pretty consistently (I am a creature of habit). However, there was one comment that struck me as strange. Essentially, they said that “Fetz is famous for his comments on blogs”. Well, yes. I comment on a variety of blogs, this is true. But famous? I highly doubt that.

Tom Woods is famous, he’s accomplished things that are beyond me (he’s a NY Times best-selling author, after all). In fact, he has a skill-set that I can only dream of, as well as quick wit and a likable personality, two things that continually evade me. But me being famous? Nope, that is not the case, and I don’t know that I would necessarily want that to be the case.

Trust me when I say that I am not attempting to ride on his coattails or anybody else’s; I could never live up to such a thing in the long run, I assure you. I just admire his and other people’s work and comment on their blogs when I feel the urge.

The reality is that I am a very outspoken guy, and I feel that if somebody is going to be as outspoken as I am then they should use their real name and stand behind their strongly-held positions. If this is fame, then surely I must have missed a memo or two, because the benefits certainly aren’t forthcoming.

I’m in the weeds on this one.
