Yesterday I wrote a lengthy post and quickly deleted it. Some of you may have been able to read a portion of it if you have Google Reader. I was afraid that perhaps it was a little “too strong”.
It seems that I am being inundated with anti-Obama e-mails. Also, see Lizzie’s post for today regarding a similar situation.
Ok, I’m proud to say that I voted for Obama. If you didn’t, but you did exercise your right to vote as an American, great!!! I am not about to try to convince you about the pros and cons of any candidate unless you ask me. I may not agree with everything regarding our president but I do respect him and trust him.
So, I just don’t understand why people who barely know me and probably couldn’t even tell you how many children I have, feel compelled to send me garbage ….trashing Obama with no supporting documents to back what they are saying. I am now taking the practice of if there is an FW: in the subject line of an e-mail, it gets deleted and will soon be filtered to do so automatically.
Yes, we do have freedom of speech but there is a measure of responsibility that goes with that. I watched the unfolding events happening in Iran with some skepticism this past weekend, accepting the pictures but wary of the “tweets” that CNN seems so proud to promote these days. Anyone can pretend to be whoever they want to be and say what they want behind a cloak.
I don’t understand why the topic of politics would even come up at a family holiday dinner. But it has for me. Of course, the guest was a “drop in”, creating an air of uneasiness and then left. He bashed Obama but would not say who he had voted for. So please……….just shut up!
So, yesterday, out of curiosity, I Googled myself. Try it with your name. You might be surprised.
This is what I (deleted) (ß-click) for myself. You might say that there is more than one person with my name but it also has my middle initital. I was quite active campaigning and was interviewed by several TV/radio stations. So someone apparently decided to comment on my behalf on this web site with misinformation.
I've deleted the above to protect my privacy in case there are "crazies" out there. Just to note that if you are a registered voter and someone knows what town you live in, your address is a public record and they can find you.
I never would have written the above. (quote has been deleted)
Now really…………..some people need to get a life.
