    Glad to hear that you're doing alright.

    I don't know how much I want to share here in public. People always just use things I disclose about my personal life to hurt me. You know, for example I've revealed that I struggle with anxiety and depression and people use that knowledge to be all "Off your medication today, I see" followed by a pic of pill box when they disagree with me about something because it's just hilarious that I require antidepressants. Shouldn't have ever said anything, but it's way too late for that now. I feel like if I say very much about my mom, people will just use that knowledge to perhaps make fun of her for suffering as a way of getting to me emotionally because that's the kind of community this is. I don't think that's in her best interests or mine.

    Anyway, with regard to that last part, I think you're right. The experts all say that that's the way to lead a longer, happier life. That's doubtless a major part of my problem: I spend so much of my life trying to change things instead of just accepting things and going along.

I continue to gently correct (you do believe me, right?) the anti-Semites, racists, and Nazis. Since I am using my real name there one even threatened to hunt me down and attack me. I confirmed he had the right guy and invited him to come.

    He decided attacking me might not be worth his trouble. While some might have you believe I waddle around in adult diapers and ride around on my (what did Safety call it?) Hoveround, I am well trained with weapons, go armed and am willing to shoot as necessary.

    That exchange brought in at least ten followers.

    I think we can handle a frowning face.
    I just got a beat-down from D and Helena. It had no effect on what I will do. I did notice that CO's poll got me three votes. I can't say it was because of what I said. It could have been a coincidence.

    A frowning face is fine. So is a finger.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Interesting comparison.

    Question. Why do prisons have walls instead of emoticons?

    This thread is a great example of why committee meetings are awful and no one should attend them.
    Tickling censorship with a feather.
