Just in case you didn't know it, the election was over FIVE DAYS AGO!! I think we've all had more than enough time to say our piece and make our point. Mine doesn't happen to agree with everyone else's, but isn't that the point of the United States of America? Freedom of speech? Isnt' that the First Amendment? I think I remember hearing that somewhere.
And also - I remember reading many blogger's entries standing up for the right to write what you want in your blog. After all, it's YOUR blog. But somehow I'm finding that statement only seems to go one way.
I wrote an entry several days ago stating my opinion regarding the outcome of the election. Throughout the majority of the campaign I rarely mentioned politics or my political viewpoint in my blog for fear of offending those whose opinions didn't match mine. When I finally did explain my viewpoint I got several comments (thank you, Bloggers) nicely and diplomatically written.
But the ones who really BUG THE H**LL OUT OF ME are the ones who have commented and continue to comment through private email reading me the riot act for being so stupid, for being a war monger (which I most certainly am not) and calling me a racist (which I most certainly am not) among a lot of other negative names, etc., etc., etc. . . . You get the idea. What's the problem, You People, are you to scared to put your opinion and your nasty comments to me / about me out there in my comments section so the world can see what you're really like? You want to hide the fact that you're judgmental and full of criticism, mean and just darn nasty? You don't want to show the world that your philosophy only goes one direction? Yours. You can write what you want in your blog, but God forbid that someone else explain their position. GET OFF MY BACK, the several of you who are doing this!
Let me warn you, all of you, because I have received more than one of these emails, and several from one person, the next email that I receive along those lines is going to be copied and pasted right here into my blog so the whole world can see what you're really like. Some time ago I figured out what you were really like and chose to cut all communications with you, but obviously you've had a lot of bloggers fooled for quite some time, but not me!!
STOP IT - RIGHT NOW!!
