I joined facebook a couple of years ago. Wow. It was great. For about 8 days. It took me that long(I'm a little dull mentally) to realize that this premier "social network" was nothing more than a pool of gossip mongering for 14-year-old girls, interrupted by commercials . Wait a minute...this is the same shit that is on that tv I threw away years ago...only with inane childish back-stabbing chit-chat mixed with the ads. Meh. I didn't go back...they kept sending me spam about the damned thing, so I deleted my account. Actually I think I had to do it about 4 times for it to take. And although I longed to connect to those like-minded individuals about some issues/causes that I have held dear over the years...I could see that this was no place to do it. To do so you would have to endure "personalities". I don't care for personalities. I don't care for egos bumping around with their feelers at attention, ready to become offended...or trying to do so to others. It reminds me of a barbershop or hairdresser's parlor, or leaning over the back fence spreading rumors. I have better things to do. Please don't drag me into this shit...but they do. Hell...maybe "I" do by just being here. I dunno. Probably.
I have said this all on my site here about 6 hundred gazillion times...in as many different ways. There is a faction that either does not agree...or is not really getting it. Or god forbid...isn't ACTUALLY reading what I write.
I made an off hand tongue-in-cheek comment on a blog entry...a silly-ass hit piece...and I linked the article in my last post....to reiterate that point that I have tried in vain to make, which people don't seem to get. It apparently was taken wrong. Well, my sense of irony isn't for everyone. But as I intimated...I don't give a shit about personalities.
If there is one thing that I have learned from running this little blog that started out innocently enough...it isn't what it appears to be out here. It is becoming "facebook". It is becoming all about personalities. It is becoming all about tender egos. My satirical comment was meant to speak to that...but alas...probably due to my inabilities to communicate effectively...or my warped sense of irony... my intended compliment(ironically),has once again dragged me into "facebook".
I have written one "hit piece" in my history here. It was on Mike Rivero's site...and ironically(again) having taken my legitimate thoughts about his actions to heart...the subject of this rant(Mr. Friend) actually took Mike to task on his radio show. Ah, the irony of it all.
If there is anything that would make me throw in the towel here...it would be this type of thing, that I have had to put up with( we all have to at one time or another it seems).
"Did you read what Peggy said over at Gullibaloney?" "Well she said, that he said...." and on and on and on....
If I had twenty bucks for every time I have been maligned personally out here...been called an agent of israhell...been outed as a disinfo agent...been called a jew...well, I could quit one of my jobs; retire again, and concentrate more time maintaining this "facebook" page. But they don't pay you. They don't reimburse for the time that all this crap takes.
What one writes is becoming less and less important. Who you align yourself with is becoming more and more strategic. I've about had it with this soap opera.
I started to see this stuff happening...Jeff Rense, D.B. Smith, Alex Jones et al...and I thought why the hell are they infighting like this? Isn't the cause of cutting through the fabric of lies in the MSM enough to occupy their time spent out here? Apparently not. When humans are involved...there will be spitting and spatting...even on the same side of things. As I am wont to say "oh brother".
So in summation, I will say that I couldn't give a rat's ass about ANY personalities out there. I don't care if John Friend or Nobody was born, or raised in Tel Aviv or on Venus. I am not looking to make friends and schmooze(oh no...I used a jewish idiom!). If my readers don't know why I am here...or if they care who I am, more than about what I am typing...then they can kiss my big ass.
I understand that this all sounds as if I have been offended. I haven't. I don't know any of these people out here personally, so offense is not an option available to them. Disheartened...depressed a bit...yes. Offended? Not a bit of it. I too defended myself personally when attacked on various sites...when I first started. But I learned quickly that you have to have a pretty tough hide to stay the course... and keep what you write... above the "facebook" mentality.
There. I have said my last piece on the subject. Or perhaps my last entry altogether. As I said...I tire of all the time this junk wastes, and how it gets in the way of more important things. If I have offended...as Veritas said..."chill brother"...and get over yourself.
Or we could all move our efforts over to facebook and really get things heated up.
