    • Now this group makes the very point I was making about enemies. The fact of whether they hate me or the idea of me, is a division without a meaning as far as I am concerned. Either way if given enough power, they will work for my lost of equality in the world. I prefer to cut to the chase and claim them as enemies that i must fight, because fight them as much to the extent that they have the ears of those in power.

      I can afford to ignore the KKK or the Nazi’s as long as they are a group with no ability to harm me or other around me, but I accept the moral obligation of working for their power to be lessen such that they can do me or others around me no harm. That I just don’t bother to define why they are against me, they just are, and I acknowledge that reality.

    • of course….however I will never consider them my “friends”. I am fine with them just fading out of my life so that I hopefully never lay eyes on them ever again. I refuse to let such people into my surroundings. Won’t do it.

      You are friend to handle it however you want but I don’t let those who work against me, in.

  • I hear this ranting a lot. Libs, libtards, “antifa” blah, blah..

    Misdirected, misplaced angst. We people are not enemies. We are the same. There is no tangible difference between the folk who keyboard […]

    • I wish I could unilaterally agree with this, but in fact I can not. Not because I think liberals are violent or nasty because I don’t. However, I do believe that there are enemies out there, and they are human beings so, in my opinion, it is missing a piece of reality to say “there are no enemies”.

      1. White Supremacists ARE in fact the enemy of the Black Population

      2. anti-LGBTQ who will go to any possible extent to deny my rights as an equal citizen because I am a gay man…is my enemy.

      3. Anybody who would stand by and watch a cop kill a human being and not say or do anything as another part of law enforcement is an enemy of the person killed.

      4. A childish man in the White House who can only come up with using the violence of the military on protestors is an enemy of both free speech and the people (you don’t send the army after protestors in America at all, and you sent law enforcement after rioters and those who destroy property.)

      I believe all people being allowed to live their lives as they see fit, would result in your position being valid and correct. However, whenever someone tries to force me to live they do in order to have rights in this nation…they are enemies of my friendship and I will so react to them. With as little rudeness as possible but I will stand opposed even if it appears adversarary.

      • To me, they are only an enemy if I am made to feel so threatened and fearful that I wish them harm. I wish none of these groups or individuals harm. I wish for them nothing but good health, happiness and love, even if they hate and want to harm me. They do not hate me, or you. They hate an idea of you or I that exists in their consciousness that has nothing to do with you or I.

        • Well, I look at it like this. They work against…if they had their way I would no rights. So I have no reason to be concerned about them, whether they are healthy or not. And I do see them as a real threat, since right now they seem to have the administrations ear.

  • The most important things in life cannot be grasped in the hand. These kind of people never learn that. And they never find the most important things in life, which is why they are so unhappy.

  • Seriously, I look around at what Trump supporters are doing to this country, for the petty, trivial things they have been convinced are so egregious…

    • Apparently, they believe in the zero-sum game….where if anybody gets equality…say a Black, an LGBQT person, a Hispanic or a follower of Islam, it somehow takes away from their bag of jellybeans. I like jellybeans, and want everybody else to be able to have them also…after all, they are a product that can be made in abundance.

      Metaphorically money and the good things in life are jelly beans, and everybody having some means that so many of society’s problems are lessened or done away with.

  • I think we were “friends” on old Thoughts, before I was driven over the edge by the village troll.

  • I was part of old Thoughts. For 3-4 years anyway I was active in old thoughts, but so frustrated, angry and driven over the rails by the childish, immature trolling of one particular member who is still active here, for some reason, that I took an action and posted something pretty revolting and disgusting that I was banned.

        • I am not sure if I am reading it after you have reworded and corrected it or before…but I see nothing wrong with what you saying as i read it. In fact, I think you are spot on. You might check my latest here also.

        • I think I pieced it together enough to get the point. Ha!
          When I try to put a post up….I also have to reread and make sure I got the format right. Its not really the easiest to post a blog. Well….for me at least.

          What I also know….is when I am REALLY passionate about something I am writing ….I can easily mix my words up and misspell. So I take a few minutes/hours to calm down and write.

          • After twenty years dealing with desktops and laptops I am now writing using only tablets, with one finger, which is very challenging, as not only am I a cancer surviver, I am also a stroke x2 survivor with only the use of one side of bady and visual complications due both from strokes and results of the radiation treatment for my throat cancer. I am an officially designated “hot mess.”

            • Hahahaha…..a Hot Mess eh? I have a question….I remember a poster from YEARS ago named FeverishDreams(?) I think the name was. Do you recall that name from any site you were on?

              • No, not familiar, but I really do not have much history with blogging or social azad l media in general. At least not compared to most blogging we rs I have seen. Old Thoughts was my first experience with blogging, from about 2013 to 2017 I believe, then the one I was just so unceremoniously exiled from. Prior to that all my activity was in Craigslist rants and raves and the old Yahoo chatrooms. I are m still pretty much a novice.

                • When you mentioned being a Buddhist…I remembered a poster from 13 14 years ago? I didn’t post much with him but he was a Buddhist…ex Military married to an Asian lady living in an Asian community. He had a beautiful garden. He use to post pictures of it. Anyhow….he was very “loud” and “vocal” over politics and in the next breath would post something peaceful. Hahahaha…..

                  We all have a warrior society…no matter how peaceful we may seem.

    • Whatever you commented on my post, if anything, is invisible to me. Unfortunate, because I believe that unlike you, I am interested in YOUR thoughts and opinions. Not the thoughts and opinions of others that you follow and repost here.

    • Wow, 13-14 years ago? You’ve been blogging that long? I didn’t even know about blogs that long ago. I was still in local community AOL chat rooms at that time. Never even heard the term blogging until about 8 years ago. I’m 64yo but still an internet novice even though I’ve been online since ’96.

      • I probably knew you I think. I came from AOL too…but the message boards before they closed them in 2009. Thats when a group of us were directed here. No…I never blogged. I only participated in Discussion Forums…..wasnt much for blogging because I was always too busy to blog. I barely had time to read blogs. But there were some really good bloggers that you just wanted to follow.

  • WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WHOA Belly.

    • All that, both the attacks on Obama, saying he wasn’t born in America etc.. And the republicans joined to to decry him for wearing a tan suit, for heavens sakes, and claimed he was Muslim, as though that was the worst thing in the world. Then trump turns around and cries like a baby if anybody doesn’t agree with everything he says.

      And now he is supporting and retweeiting some bigot’s statement that “the only good democrat is a dead democrat”. I haven’t heard that type garbage in my lifetime and in history only when it was mentioning the Native Americans, Oh but to give the “cowboy” who originated that piece of bilge, he did say he meant politically, You see according to him the democrats are destroying America,

      Right, the man in the White House is the one trying to turn us into a dictatorship with his fragile ego in charge of the country and the nuclear codes. I used to keep thinking that he might eventually reach the bottom of the nastiness he would be willing to ditch out, but he proved me wrong on that.

      And the “evangelical christians” are complicit with his whole destruction of what made America great in the first place. If we don’t manage to get that madman out of office, we are cooked as a country. This last week has just proven that even more for me with racist cops still getting away with killing Black Men for no good reason,,,,,but standing on their necks of all things…and with many many witnesses watching the brutality.

    • Nobody, you are presenting it more correctly than many others. First they tried to say it was “suppression of free speech” which it is certainly not. Nobody stopped him from issuing the statements and using a privately owned and run company, Twitter, to do so. And they didn’t actually even fact check him. That would have been to say “this is not true, all evidence supports the fact that mail-in facts are as secure as any other”.

      What they actually did was say, you might wanna go look into the facts yourselves. Something that all of us who have watched trump lie, then lie again, and then lie about lying know to do anyway.

      I see where Gab has made a bet to get his business, interestingly enough asking their customers to use twitter to do so. Which tells me that Gab is in fact not a trustworthy or nonpartisan organization. However, do they even have a twitter like platform. I thought they were like thoughts or that other blog site you and I were at.

      So, we are learning about the reach of Gab or it is another one of the cesspools of trumpism that has done so much damage to the decency and trustworthiness of this nation over the last 3 plus years,

  • I have seen, on multiple occasions, Trump and his surrogates make this assertion.

    Short answer, NO, social media attempts,,pitifully, to silence the voices that promote and incite hatred and violence. Most […]

    • No, conservatives are not silenced. What some folks do is silence them on their particular blogs and facebook postings and particularly in groups. Yet, a pretty liberal group is often over-run by people of the trump mentality invading and insisting on pushing their agenda.

      To prove your point even more, one of trump’s most recent rampages is about Twitter deciding to factcheck his lies by merely suggesting as an addendum that people look into the evidence for that particular claim which was about how mail-in voting always results in illegal voting. None of the evidence supports such a claim but for simply suggesting that people check the data with unbiased facts, he has accused twitter of “stopping free speech”.

      First of all, they didn’t stop him from saying it, second they didn’t even say it was a lie (although the evidence is certainly there that it is NOT true, and 3. they are a private company not a government entity so freedom of speech doesn’t apply in the first place.

      But then trump seems unaware of most of the Constitution and what it is about.

  • I don’t think these attention craving extremists comprehend at all the meaning of the term “freedom.” If everyone is not free, NO ONE is free. Privilege, entitlement, and discrimination are not synonymous with freedom. The deluded perceptionnthat one is more worthy of freedom than another is its own kind of slavery. Slave to ignorance.

  • I look around these days at all these misguided, defiant souls marching around with flags and guns whining about “liberty and rights” over what really amounts to a relatively brief period of inconvenience to […]

    • “Freedom” is never without limits and when people yell “freedom” as their excuse for endangering other people’s lives, it is almost unforgivable. What it is without question is SELFISH.

      A bunch of Typhoid Mary’s running around carrying the virus to others because they need a hair cut or some other insignificant thing. People yell free speech too, yet if they scream fire in a crowded theater, they are likely to go to jail as a result. That is called “causing a panic” and rightly is seen as wrong.

      Yet some still want to “be free” to do anything they want. Funnily enough, however, they are often the very ones that object to how someone else lives their life.
