“Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.”
I am an ethnic minority in America and as a result, I moderate all comments and have a zero-tolerance policy for ignorant bigots and intolerant, religious zealots.
I have a liberal attitude and like-minded individuals of ALL backgrounds are encouraged to visit, comment, like, and ask questions. I do reply to every comment from those allowed on my blog out of common courtesy and because I like to talk to people! My posts are brutally honest and I write from a minority perspective with a dry sense of humor. I am very streetwise and quick to judge people as a result, and I freely make fun of people who can be productive members of society, but choose not to. I cannot help the fact that I am now disabled and not the productive citizen I once was, but they can and should. I stand behind everything I post on WordPress.
I do not respond to spammers or likers who think blogging is a competitive sport. I am sick and have low vision and these people are a waste of my time. However, if you get a like from me, know that I did read your post and liked it for a reason. If you leave a comment that does not get posted, it is because it looks like spam and spammers’ comments come in various forms, including non-specific flattery.
As this is a blog on health issues, please note that I have no formal training in healthcare, but am well-educated and do source all that I can. Please see a doctor if you need medical care, but I am open to sharing my experiences further or providing resources—just ask! However, due to the litigious society I live in, all of my doctors are anonymous and I do not reveal their names. Nonetheless, the purpose of my blog is to help others play the hand they were dealt, as well.
