Well, as was indicated earlier, it's not going to get any better elsewhere on the internet. The whole world wide web as turned into a mental sewer. The only thing I do online is keep up with my banking, visit this website, and occasionally research something. I do sometimes watch videos of subjects that interest me. I try to avoid the politically polarizing content though. It annoys me because YouTube is always trying to bait me into watching some far right or far left video. Pinterest was bad for this too... I "pin" one photo of the "right wing and the left wing being part of the same bird", and suddenly the site thinks I'm a flat Earther (no really...) and starts suggesting some of the most ridiculous stuff I've ever seen.
I take some of the responsibility for planting the "political seed" here on this website and I regret it. I live in an area that is so red you can strike a fire off it, and about as religiously tolerant as the middle east, and is has made my practice of skirt wearing an interesting challenge to put it mildly.. Thus I would come on here and rant and rave about this or that, one things leads to another, and here we sit. Carl and Uncle Al would have been in their right to call me down a long time ago, but they didn't. Maybe they should have. To this day they still haven't directly done so to me personally, so I'm just going to have to take the initiative myself and be a part of the solution instead of the problem.
I know in the past I've said some things that likely offended some members, but they remained quiet. I've always had a "love-hate" relationship with the Christian religion as a whole, and I've expressed both sides of this here from time to time. I realize many members here are of the Christian faith, and I don't think I've ever been called down by any of them, in fact, they usually just let me be to get it out of my system and once I'm finished, they still seem to be polite and respectful towards me. Very Christ like indeed. In fact, many of the Christian members here have kept me from going on somewhat of an "anti-religious war path" many times, and in fact has lightened my heart in many ways.
So before THIS thread gets locked too... let me say that I appreciate those who turned the other cheek when I might have said offensive things over the years, and if I did offend, know that it was not my intention, and I do offer a complete apology. If a local flat out hits me over the head with a bible for my skirt wearing, I'll probably mention it, but I'll try to just keep it the facts of the matter.
As for politics, who the hell knows. Maybe we'll still be free tomorrow, maybe we wont. Doesn't really matter either way, it is what it is. But I'm going to enjoy as much of my life as I can, because liberty may never expire, but one thing is for certain, I certainly will, and I want to live as much as I can before I kick the bucket.
