Just a thought or two for today

If you don't like what I think, don't read it! No one is forcing you to and
the thoughts are mine, so!
Sitting here drinking a beer and thinking! Been a weird kind of week.
I almost to a day predicted the outcome of impeachment. That was a no brainer! Also predicted that the left would immediately start more investigations and they did! Said they would plan 2 more impeachments and
that is how many they are starting!
But today I went to see off a guy who was not famous or rich or powerful.
There was no body, just an urn! There was an Honor Guard, as it should have been and pomp and circumstance with the flag giving! Only one dignitary and a whole bunch of old men, who at one time were young and
potent and tough. And all were at one time active U S MARINES! We said bye to one who worked hard all his life to raise his family and who lived to see his children grow up and have children and one of the children have his first great grandchild! Everyone called him Grump, even his children and grandchildren and all of us who knew him! He liked it!
The Priest said he had told him that social media was the scourge of the earth, because folks could say things to you and about you that they would not have the nuts to say to your face. I agree with that statement.
He had told many on facebook that he would meet them at the spot of their
choosing and let them say it to his face. He made no threats, just a promise that there be a repercussion
But as I sit here tonight, I can pull up hundreds of posts on this site where some have called others names and hurled insults at one another! But you know shit from shineola about them or their lives or what kind of a person they are and you more than likely never will! It is that they do not agree with
you, therefore you are entitled to label them this or that! Know this is pretty deep for this ole country boy and I am not intellectual as many others and do not explain myself as well as some, but I know that this medium is a way for many to get out their frustrations and also to be nasty and trite to
those they do not like. But they would not come to meet you and say it to
your face. That would require courage and fortitude. I have been lucky enough to have seen courage and fortitude and fear and loathing in many of
its forms. I'll take the first 2 everytime! Maybe we ought to think before we
label anyone anything! Probably won't happen, just wishful thinking!
Just the thoughts of an old fart
