Some things will never make sense to me...such as joining a group to be a part of a like-minded community, but then intentionally doing things to alienate yourself and wearing the 'how many times l've been blocked' as a badge of honor...WTF...????
Either you wish to contribute in a way that promotes love and acceptance or you are seeking for ways to destroy it...there is no in between...
Life is hard enough without others 'dumping their trash' on my lawn...and l won't/don't tolerate it...for everyone else, PEACE!!✌
I don't believe there's such a thing as "like-minded" people. Yes, we can agree of certain things, but at some point we will disagree. Sometimes virulently. What then?
I've only blocked a handful of people, and that's because I was feeling harassed, not because they disagreed with me. I like a spirited debate. It's how I learn. It's how our forefathers and foremothers managed to created one of the greatest countries we get the experience of living in (and hopefully restoring).
I can't be right all the time... that's just not possible. In fact, if I'm honest, I'm wrong more than I'm right. That's why I welcome debate. I learn. I grow. And eventually, I am able to make better decisions with my own life.
I will reiterate - for those who don't seem to get it (and to simply entertain those of you that do?)...l don't tolerate BULLSHIT on my posts. PERIOD. I don't care who you are, where you live, what level you are, or anything else. I am the moderator of my own posts and if you aren't being supportive, encouraging, or helpful in some way - then you are doing the opposite.
"Freedom of religion also means freedom FROM religion..." well that applies to "Freedom of Speech" too! Just because you are free to say it, doesn't mean that you should. Freedom of speech does NOT give you the right to be an asshole! So, you don't like my posts or disagree with them in some way...?? Then don't fucking read them!! Block me! I don't give a shit! At the same time, if you can't think of something nice/decent to say in response to them...Then SHUT.THE.FUCK.UP!! I'm not here for you! Just because it's a free forum doesn't give you the right to just trample all over it! ASSHATS!!
For everyone that enjoys my posts and have engaged with me in a kind and supportive way, l apologize for the rant...please proceed with your regularly scheduled program...?
