The past 48 hours has really produced a lot of momentum. The sort of momentum that can be compared to a tiny snowball that has started its "roll" down the big hill, while constantly getting bigger and bigger. As it gains speed and size, the snowball starts to see what is happening to it and as it gets bigger, it notices people racing to get out of its growing path as it appears that nothing will stop this snowball as it is quickly becoming a massive avalanche. It says to itself, 'YES! I am the greatest snowball and I will soon dominate the world!' Spectators not in the direct path shake their heads and say to others, "That snowball doesn't see the huge brick wall at the bottom of the hill."
The little snowball that could.... Didn't. It is now reduced to mere snow flakes at the bottom of the hill where it helplessly sits until Spring arrives and it ultimately melts away and is soon but a snowy memory.
The little snowball that thinks it can is current Minneapolis Blogger John Hoff aka Johnny Northside. He was sued for getting someone he disliked fired when he used his blog to achieve his goal. He lost in court and was ordered to pay his victim $60,000 in damages. Hoff didn't agree with that ruling and appealed. The higher court made note of his bullying intentions but, the ruling was reversed after the case had been spun into a First Amendment case.
One might compare the results of that ruling to what one would expect to happen if a serial killer (like Charles Manson) was set free and given a gun upon their release. They would see it as a license to kill.
John Hoff may not be a serial killer in the sense of physically killing someone but, armed with the First Amendment and a computer (and a blog supported by BlogSpot), Hoff is just as dangerous. Like a Ram, Hoff is a battering blogger. Once it spots its target, it charges and rams into it with full force and repeats the beatings until its victim is fully defeated.
John Hoff has been charging and ramming away the past 48 hours. His target is his "nemesis" and also the author of this very blog. I am Jim Watkins and I am Hoff's current target.
A Ram has many enemies capable of defeating a rabid Ram. The most notable would be Wolves. A single wolf is typically no match for a ram but, a wolf is never alone as it is part of a pack and a pack of wolves can defeat a ram by watching it and learning about it. They see a ram is powerful but they also see its weakness. That weakness is that it repeats its actions and the wolves wait as the ram charges its target and slams into it head first and just at the moment it abruptly stops, it wobbles when it is disoriented from the collision and the pack of wolves move in and the all mighty ram that had knocked so many challengers off its hill is no more.
Blogger John Hoff has been ramming away at me the last 48 hours while seemingly totally unaware that he is being watched carefully by the so-called pack of wolves... And with the help of the Internet, he is being watched by others around the world as he continues his attack. (sarcasm font) At the same time, little Timmy Smith's jeans are snagged and torn at the playground , leaving him crying as such an insignificant event puts the ram battering Hoff's attack in perspective. (end sarcasm font)
I invite you, the readers to check back here soon to read the continuation of this crazy story about Hoff's attack on his natural enemy.
Hoff has huffed and puffed in his attempt to humiliate this "biography blogger" but, blew as hard as he could and the result was... Nothing came down. He has announced on his mega-post about me Click Here that he has bigger fish to fry and looks as though Hoff has given up his assault (For now but, he will fire again).
The reason he has pulled back is simple... He has fired his biggest guns and has rammed as hard as he could. He rammed away what little he thought he had "on me" and now... Hoff has nothing left. No dirt on me that he can mix with water and sling his mud at me. I will be posting copies of text messages he sent, parts of the comments that came from his post and my analysis of it all so, the public can try to make sense of what his point might have been.
