Bring Your Gun Y’all

There’s this cut and paste post going around FB where the poster says that their home is open to you and that you can bring your gun and not wear a face mask and that they will feed you and comfort you in these trying times.

Here it is:::

My house is a safe zone. Firearms are always welcome. Face masks not required. I’ve always got a soda or cold water and hot coffee. My table is non-judgmental. Any family or friend who needs to chat are always welcome. We can talk, share a hug, a laugh, a cry, or just listen. If you’re hungry, I’ll feed you. I will always do my best to be available… you are always welcome!! This is a value that has been lost… I’m hoping, at least one friend copies this and posts it. I did.

The important thing the poster wants you to know is…you can bring your gun.

M’kay.

I’m good. Really. So. I think I’ll just stay at home and order Pizza.

Bite Me, Ya Little Worm

“Facebook now turns that goal on its head. It claims that providing warnings about a politician’s speech is inappropriate, but removing content from citizens is acceptable, even if both are saying the same thing. That is not a noble stand for freedom. It is incoherent, and worse, it is cowardly. Facebook should be holding politicians to a higher standard than their constituents.”

Zuckerberg Faces Staff Anger, as Black Lives Matter Protests Continue Across America

I’ve been sent to Facebook Jail twice- once it was for quoting Trump with no comment from me and another time was for showing a Klan Rally with a link to a story about Trump’s father being arrested at said rally.

And of course there was the time they took some of my pictures down because they were ‘hateful’. You know, towards Trump.

If I were paranoid I’d wrap some tinfoil around my head and go hide out in Walmart because it could feel like someone is out to get me.

As it stands, this happens a lot in FB world to a lot of users.

Somebody doesn’t like your post and they report it and Facebook pulls it down because, well. Who the heck knows? But You can bet your sweet emoji there is a standard at Facebook and it’s started to look like it’s twisted to the right.

So I’ve got these blogs and sometimes people read them and as a writer that should be all that matters.

I mean, do I really need to share my insights with people on Facebook that are just nosey about my private life? How many people are really interested what I think or feel because I’ll tell you right now, the answer is not THAT many.

So I should be doing more to reach out and support other writers and bloggers and I should be doing my part to encourage people to speak up and speak out about what moves them because in the world of Facebook, those days are numbered.

Talk To Me

A Bancroft Manor Prompt on The Bancroft Collection FB Page

Who have you had your last conversation with who you might actually like to talk to again? Perhaps you will dialogue with them in your journal.

If I could reach out and have a conversation with anyone – who would it be?

Easy.

My dog.

He’s awesome.

This is the way it works with us:

” Hi Hamish! Who is the best dog in the world? Do you wonder what it will look like a day after the world ends? I Hope the dogs and cats make it. Oh. And the dolphins and dragonflies and the bumble bees.”

Hamish looks up at me, his eyes are full of kindness and understanding and love.

” I hope at least one person makes it because if the cats do, they’re going to expect the rest of us to be their slaves and me and the Bees and the Dolphins…” he says

” and the dragonflies ” I add

” Yeah, them too. We’re not good with that.”

” Well…okay. Dogs, Bumble Bees and Dolphins.”

Hamish jumps up and plants a little kiss on my nose. ” I knew you’d understand.”

No. MORE.

If me being ‘reasonable’ means that I have to sit still while someone vomits right wing conspiracy talking points  into my face like:  Full term babies are being aborted because at the last minute a woman decides she didn’t want the baby and she can make money selling it’s body parts so why not?  Or people are losing their homes and living on the streets and their children are starving because ” liberals” are accusing them of being Nazis and they’re getting kicked off Social Media platforms   or  that Donald Fucking Trump is NO different then any other President…then take your verbal vomit elsewhere and spew it into somebody else’s personal space because:
