This is possibly a mistake that I am trying to make look like I meant to do it this way. I am still learning the How to’s of the way to do things. Just one of the glorious aspects of trying to Blog.
Today while listening to Rush Limbaugh, as I do daily when possible, Rush, referred to the outrage of people that reacted to the action of the president of Google, patronizing a Restaurant chain that opposes LGBT lifestyles. (One admirable act by a man who could afford the expense with respect to the Mission Statement of another man’s Company.) From my best understanding, the outrage was such that the Google Head, apologized for his action. In my mind, the negative pressure was very rude and without consideration of unknown facts that may be present. The action of one man patronizing a restaurant is no forum for making sure that everyone has to believe that you are right and justified in criticizing what is not your belief. In my lifetime I have been subjected to many differing opinions, beliefs. and lifestyles. Never once, did I feel that it was my duty to Bully anyone else to agree with my way of thinking.
I have rights too. Being subjected to action lacking the consideration of facts by those not in agreement does not mean that their right is to infringe on those that may not agree.
You may ask what are the Facts.
- Are the members of the LGBTQDAF community aware of the number of Gay employees working at any restaurant chain?
- Were any of “the community” aware of any patron of a chain restaurant who may have been Gay?
- What is the population of “the community” aware of the Friend, Relatives, and acquaintances, I am associated with. I pray that those who know me, are as upset with “the communities mouthpieces” as I. Many, I know, are embarrassed with those actions of entitlement.
Having an opinion is the separator for all individuals thinking alike. Was it Abraham Lincoln that said something to the effect that it is greater to remain silent and thought a fool than to say something and remove all doubt. (paraphrased).
I remembered posting in 2015 that appears below and I felt that there was some relationship that may be present.
In your life, have you ever felt that you should say something and rethought the action?
Are you thinking about all the facts, even the hidden factors?
Would you write a comment below, knowing that you would not be Judged? If so, do so.

Today, there is a problem. On Facebook, a post showed a row of skeletons, each had a tag as to who they were, “black, white, Christian, Jew, and so on”. As observed they all looked alike. The point was that we are all the same. To take one more step, you could put the rest of the body to it. Nude or clothed, and you should make the same observation, “they are all the same.” The difference in people is found in when they open their mouths. That is the only time, one should be making judgments. Those judgments should not be on the person, but on the views that they find to be important. And at that, the judgment could be that of agreement or disagreement. Enjoy what others have to say, for there is a lesson to be learned. Find the lesson, and your eyes will allow you to see the skeleton.
