Tonight I am not a happy camper. I commented on a members political blog and she posted on my Spark Page. I was not happy with the way she characterized me. She did amuse me when she referred to my old folks. In my family, my wife and I are the old folks.
Sorry folks but I just have to vent. I hate to bring negative stuff into SP but I don't know where else to do it. My wife has had two heart attacks and I'm sure not going to bother her with this silliness.
I responded to my detractor on her blog with the following:
This is what you put on my Spark Page:
"Guess it really is scary to me that you didn't hear anything! This is a real crisis that is set to end my medicare and social security! If you don't care about your self and your old folks, nor your children...who do you care for? Your vote will decide whether this country goes to the corporatists or to you and I. Ponder!"
My blogs and my page pretty much tell who I am. What they don't say is that I am an Independent and my thinking is pretty well unbiased by party politics. I do ponder, I do read a lot, and I think for myself. I respect what SP is trying do do on this site and try to be a positive influence on other member's lives.
What I don't do is let a political party tell me what to think. What I don't do is go on a team members Spark Page and put them down. I respect other people's opinions and while I may not agree with them I treat them with respect and civility.
Finally, I feel that blogs of this nature should be where all discussion of the topic should remain as this is the only place SP allows political discussion. As you said to me, Ponder!
Folks, tomorrow I'll do better. I promise.
Enjoy the ride,
