MY OPINIONS ONLY
Posted On 10/30/2014 13:18:14 by Notgrnyyet

   I used to write lots of blogs. I stuck to the rules, just wrote about my childhood,sweet and honery things. I quit writing because the rules got too strict for my taste. I felt that my freedom of speech was being taken away..

I very seldom comment on a blog. I read some with interest and agreement. Others I don't read because I'm either not interested or I don't agree. Recently one I strongly agreed with I felt I wanted to comment on, agree with.   I went about my way after commenting. I came back one day and there were these nasty and hurtful comments that I took offence to.  It is my opinion that Obama is the worst President we have ever had. I hate his policies and I hate what he stands for but I DONT HATE Obama as a man. I don't hate him because he is black. He has a soul same as me and I Pray for him, STILL, I hate his policies.  If you like Obama as your President then write your own blog  expressing those views. I'll go on by that blog and keep my mouth shut without any name calling, racism comments and the most childless one: calling others childish.
 I was raised to love everybody. Mama told me often that when someone was being nasty that I don't know what made them act that way so I should just try to not let it bother me. I was raised in Church, became a born again Christian when I was ten. One of the Lord's Comandments is that we love one another as we love ourselves.  I've come to realize that I can love someone the Godly way but hate their ways.  I'm supposed to be a witness to others. I don't spout bible verses word for word but I know the Bible and I know how God wants me to behave. I fail Him every day and I am Forgiven because I ask. My religious views ARE MINE and should be respected. I have  wonderful  and loving friends who don't believe as I do. We don't argue about it, we just love one another as friends.
 I have never understood why people reading blogs can't just go on to another one if they don't like what they are reading and not go spouting hateful hurtful things. You can like Obama all you want but don't attack me because I don't like him.  Try being a grown-up. Out of the thousands of members here there are very few who want to write blogs I am one of those few. I think maybe fewer still read them.
I am reminded why I've all but left this site behind. There are several reasons but this is one of them.

Clydene,

I agree with most of what you said.  I firmly believe in our freedom of speech and am thankful we can say what we want about the president or whatever without having to worry about being tossed in prison for an opinion.  While I will defend anyone's right to an opinion or opinions it doesn't mean anyone should say thoughtless and hurtful things.  That said, If someone doesn't agree with someone then either write an intelligent essay defending your position with facts and examples and leave out writing a bunch of personal insults or hurtful things or say NOTHING.  People can be so hurtful and immature.

As a kid I came across a saying, "It is better to be thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt."  That's how I look at it. Be respectful and mature of other's opinion or just don't say anything. Clydene,  Winterdog is right about just overlook thoughtless acts. Let me end this with how much I always enjoyed reading about your escapades with Brenda.

   Thanks Judy, I really enjoy writing about Brenda and I and I continue to do so but not here. I write for my local newspaper now.  Too many people here won't let others have their own opinions. I was raised to respect people. I had all but left the hill until just recently when I decided to participate again. Now I know why I left.   I won't be posting here any more. I won't delete my account but I will  come only to read my comments and messages. It's just not worth the aggravation.  I hope to hear from you. You have been my friend for almost since the first and I appreciate you.

The simplest solution to not getting negative opinions to what one writes, would be to start a Closed group that you could monitor and only let like minded people join.

It is called freedom of speech, a big part of our country. You are free to say what you want. This site is a cross section of the population. So expect anything, it is all legal. Take it with a grain of salt, we all have our opinions, and can express them at will. Nothing can change that..


  True Winterdog, I just wish others could respect that. I've always stood for what I believe and nothing will stop that but I think I am through with The Hill. I respect others and I expect that in return.

Clydene, i reflected back on some of the things i have read and some of the hateful things written, and like you, i just go on my way. I believe it's childish to post something in anger because you don't believe "their" way. I'm not on here as often as i use to be, but i do enjoy hearing from my friends of many years. Let us continue to enjoy our friendships and make The Hill enjoyable to visit.  Love and blessings to you Clydene!!


 Thank you Kathie, your comments are appreciated.  I just don't understand why some can't respect others and their opinions. I stand for what I believe and I believe that is my right.  Seems like once again someone just can't go on and let it be. Gods Blessings on you Kathie

I dislike pontificating blogs, the ones telling people what they should do, as though the writer has any right to dictate to others. I agree with Clydene that we should stick to our own beliefs and allow others to have theirs. I don't do religion on The Hill, never have and never will, but that doesn't mean I don't have any firm beliefs of my own. I don't impose my beliefs on anyone else, or belittle any of theirs. Mostly I simply avoid answering them. The Hill is my playground, and I keep it that way. As for Obama, to me he is just another human being, and since I don't have to live by his decisions, I really have no business criticising them, and it gets really boring reading the perpetual moans that keep surfacing in here about political issues that only affect America. I like to think of NOTH as a multi-national site that has the potential to be happy, if the members let it be. Americans might be in the majority here, but believe me they are not the only ones who contribute to the success of this site. Live and let live!


 Thank you for your thoughts Barb,  you and I have been the best of friends since almost the start of NOTH.   Even though we don't agree on some things we are respectful of one another's opinions.  You are my friend no matter what differences we may have. We don't holler at one another about things we just respect one another. Thank you for your friendship.😄💐
