I am about to become somewhat unpopular. Instead of asking the regular members of the site for donations, why not set up a separate category for those who are using their free membership to advertise their businesses? I am here to share my views, not visit sites advertising Singapore whorehouses. I see enough Nike advertisements as it is. I don't need to them here. I am taking the drastic measure of blocking these people, not because I do not like free speech but because I do not approve of free advertising on a social media site that has to cost thousands a day to operate.

You know, I enjoy the free exchange of ideas and information on this site and I appreciate that the site admins do not censor, so far, any of the posts. But there are a few that I am tempted to block. Their constant "YELLING" and foul language are becoming tiresome. I do not need to mention any names, they know who they are. Their tirades are reminiscent of those thrown by children when they don't get their way. Their language is that of a teenager who finally got the nerve to try cursing for the first time. Stilted and illused. Kinda like the Cajun who, when informed his son was cussing terribly in school, said, "Yeah, he knows all the words, but he ain't learned how to use them properly.". Hopefully, those whom I am aiming this at will take a hint and self moderate. If nothing has changed by Monday I intend to block them. Not that will impress or harm them, but it will make my reading enjoyment more meaningful.
From a Marine's wife:.................
I sat, as did millions of other Americans, and watched as the government underwent a peaceful transition of power yesterday..
At first, I felt a swell of pride and patriotism while Joe Biden took his Oath of Office.
However, all that pride quickly vanished as I later watched 21 Marines, in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President.
It was then that I realized how far America 's military had deteriorated.
Every one of them missed the bastard.
