Here on the Fence

With all that's happened lately, and many friends emailing similar observations and experiences, I've been feeling a duty to tell the world some things that this area won't want to hear. It's not even that people don't know it; it's that they don't want to face it. I understand people wanting to believe that something is good and right in this world. But the truth is that it isn't and hasn't been.

It's not that I don't have the courage, of course I do. It's not that I'm fearful or don't want to be hated. My big mouth has gotten me in lots of hot water and I play with people who hate me. It's not being afraid of being smeared either; I was publicly smeared enough times that it doesn't bother me anymore. I also know I'm a troublemaker and kinda nuts, but I'm honest. You're never wrong if you're honest.

So I'm sitting here examining why I'm not telling...

You mean, there's more? I've got my kilt on, I can take it. At least I will if it means you can share the burden in some small way.

LMAO! I just love you CarrieBoo. I'm still formulating how to do what needs to be done. Thanks for your support. It means a lot.

Who was it that said "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"? Well, that's you, my friend, in a nut-shell.

Yes, speak the truth. As I said to you privately, I am doing my own part to alert the media, as they say.

What really do we have to lose? And what do we have to gain, or give? A lot, I think.

You're right, ol' pal o'mine. It's practically a moral imperative. Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night! :)
