I have two posts to do - this one is stupid politics - the other has to do with OU - UT.
I have an exstudent, girl - actually she is more of a young lady now I would suppose - from Manor. She was different than most - walked to the beat of a different drummer - somewhat mystical thinking. She wasn't quite a Goth, but still different. I really liked her and the independence she had.
On facebook, she sent me an invitation to Occupy Austin. People send me invitation to all sorts of Facebook things. I ignore all. This one rang a bell in my brain. It asked if I would attend: yes, no, ignore.
I clicked No. C'mon, I'm not going to drive to Austin and stand around with a bunch of strangers holding signs accomplishing nothing. I think they are complaining about dastardly corporate greed, mean ole business people, and especially rich people. There is nothing worse than a rich person...he had to cheat to make the money or at the least he took it from some widow or orphan.
So I clicked "no" and made a couple of comments like -- I'm not going to any Obama rally -- and ask yourself who is paying for all of this. Anyone who thinks these gatherings are financed by independents, is just simply out of touch with reality.
To make a long story shorter, all of a sudden I am getting facebook message from all sorts of strangers who are fussing at me. I did add a couple more little comments, and, then, told them that I would delete any further contact from strangers.
What did I learn? These comments to an invite - them thar are not private. I have tried to quit arguing with Liberals and Obama worshipers. It serves no purpose - just like here - if you add a comment fussing at me, it will be ignored. So there.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
