There are just a few blogs on my daily reading list. I know there probably should be more but, when battling the cacophony of every day life, I don’t always have time to spend searching through the blogroll for the most worthy items. The question in that case becomes, where to find a source for insight and reasoned wisdom gleaned from a variety of sources, or commentary in their own essays that speak truth to modern times?

The site that has emerged as one of my daily go-to sources is The Camp of the Saints.

One finds a plethora of potent pontification, a vast area of knowledge, and a keen insight into the human psyche in the writings of  TCOTS’ general proprietor, Robert “Bob” Belvedere. A man who continually exhibits exquisite taste in the finer things of life and of western civilization. I often find sharp and unwavering points of view to which I wholeheartedly agree when I visit The Camp of the Saints.

An example:

I think I speak for a lot of people when I state: I do not fear Islam.  I despise it, disdain it, scorn it, because of almost everything it preaches.  It is anti-freedom, anti-liberty.  The name itself means ‘submission’ and it demands the subjugation of all, allowing for no dissent.

What was the question? Need you ask? I think not. No gray area there and dead spot-on, I must say.

Bob has a love of American principles that is unsurpassed, which is represented by his fierce desire for a strict interpretation of the constitution as written, not some living, breathing, floating target of ideals that change with the installation of some new judge or election of a political figure with their own particular axe to grind or social experiment to install.

Bob has also been a gracious, good humored commenter and sometimes mentor to your humble Robot over the short life of this blog and for that I am most grateful.

A more genial host you will not find than General Belvedere, unless of course your name is Pelosi, Reid, Obama or their ilk.

Be sure to add The Camp of the Saints to your bookmarks and blogrolls. Visit often, and be sure to tell Bob a drunken automaton blindfolded you, spun you around, and led you to his super secret lair. You can thank me later.

America needs more patriots like General Robert “Bob” Belvedere.

    Well said, Robot! This is a favorite Blog of mine, Bob is a very smart writer, and a nice gentleman as well. He posts on a big variety of subjects, and is very interesting in his opinions on all of them. People should read his Blog daily, for the reasons you said.

    MNR: Flattery will get you mega Full Metal Jacket Reach Arounds. I am red-faced with embarrassment.

    Bunni: Thank you.

      Bob, the pleasure is all mine, no need to be embarrassed, you run a top-notch blog over there, my friend. Top. Notch.

    Going to the site after this comment and will follow it, if you and Bunni recommend it then I need no further recommendation.

      Christopher, you won’t regret it.

    • Bunni August 23, 2010 at 1:09 pm

      Thanks, Christopher, you’ll love it.

      By the by, how does one get their picture to appear here?

      • mnrobot August 23, 2010 at 1:48 pm

        what!? You don’t like the avatar the Robot has picked out for you? Outrage! Sacrilege! lol I kind-of like the female Sponge-bob look on you Christopher. :)

        *Sigh* If you must, you can go to, sign in (it’s easy and quick) and you can make your own that will follow you to any WordPress blog that has installed that plug-in.

    Bob is the toast of the blogosphere ;-)

    Bob is a worthy recipient. I’ve found his blog be educational and entertaining. That, and he has some of the best Rule 5 around the internets.

    I don’t know who Bob is, but I sure like Red’s picture.

    Belvedere! A gentlemen. Perhaps the only gentlemen friend I have, which is why I value him.

    Good call, Robot. Who says you’re just blinking lights and a dull stare?
