It’s been a year now since I started this distraction at the behest of my friends and family. The fact that they were trying to find an outlet where I could vent my frustrations and at the same time leave them alone was of no matter… I thought it was a good idea as well.
6000 views, 60 followers and over half of the countries in world later I am still amazed anyone reads anything I hammer out.
Considering my very first received comment was “You’re a Moron!” it is stunning that there are people out there who either find value in what I am offering up for thought or have lives as boring as mine and like to watch drunk fools opine on issues they have no business talking about. (I would also commend that first commenter on his deft judge of character if not his reading comprehension skills.)
Since at my age I have little self-respect left, whichever it is I thank you. And all those surrounding me thank you as well.
In the End, hopefully I have followed my guideline of staying away from platitudes. I also hope I have offended a number of you… but in a way that you still choose to come back. I always look forward to your comments, especially those that take issue with some position I take or statement I make.
That is the point.
Make an Effort.
Cheers to all of you!

Yes you offended me, but I keep coming back, not sure sometimes if you are just being funny or are truly a little crazy….

sometimes funny… sometimes crazy… often stupid.

Well, thats what keeps me coming back for more!

6000 views in dozens of countries? I’m only surprised by the number of countries. I’m glad I made this suggestion, and it isn’t solely because I didn’t want to be the only person to volunteer to be your foil. You have a thoughtful opinion and can defend it well…even when you’re wrong 🙂

Thank you. I try to be thoughtful exactly because I’m so often wrong.
