I really try to stay pragmatic about issues, though I have my own views and preferences. But I like to discuss and banter with my friends because honest and vigorous debate is the heart of our Republic. I just don’t get how some people will come out with both gloves on if they disagree with an honest statement of mine, or a difference of opinion! It’s like all of a sudden there’s a reason to be defensive. Seriously?!! I don’t always know WHERE a fact came from; I don’t always know WHY I know something (maybe it’s inbred); but I DO know MY beliefs, and you don’t have to agree with them … just be civil and respectful, and so will I.
Welcome to my thoughts!These posts are therapy for me – a way to let it out and let it go! You may or may not agree with me; that’s alright. Comment on them, but use decency and common sense … what’s on the internet is FOREVER! And please, refrain from disrespect and vulgarity - even if we vehemently disagree. I’m a provacateur; some of what I say may provoke a strong reaction from you, but I encourage healthy and vigorous discourse on topics of interest to you!
