ShareThis Test

This post is just a test post for me to test adding a ShareThis Widget into my posts.
If this had been an actual post, the above text would be more informative.
This concludes this test of the Emergency Blogcasting System.

I am a logical, open-minded, liberal, progressive, radical, green, independent individual living in the heart of Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, amongst apparently brainwashed conservative southern Baptist Republican zombies. I'm tired of the lies of the government and their media mouthpieces and their corporate masters. I'm tired of the cheating and the stealing and the killing. I'm ready for the future. But the only way we are going to fix things is to all band together and say NO MORE! We have to start punishing the rich white collar criminals as harshly as the poor black blue-collar criminals, if not more so. And I'm tired of cults (AKA religions). They are dangerous, divisive, and delusional. We should evolve past religions towards a global humanitarian ethics. We should move away from a new world order and get back to city states with local democracy, power, food, and water.

    Hey Mark, my name is Justin Thorp and I’m the Community Manager at Clearspring (the parent company of AddThis).

    I was curious why you chose to use Share This versus our product AddThis (

    I’d love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to drop me a line –

    AddThis button would only work for me if I hosted this blog on my own domain, which I may end up doing. The ShareThis button doesn’t work on WordPress because it uses JavaScript. Right now, it looks like if I want to provide readers with a way to share my posts, I’ll have to paste the codes for some small graphics buttons and the various codes for different bookmarking sites into each post.
