The comments that were expressed at this blog were atrocious. I have never been exposed to that level of Neanderthal, knuckle-scraping, slobbering, ignorance in my life.
While both progressives and right-wingers occasionally used uncivilized language and references, it was the right-wingers, especially two of them, that were most offensive. Replete with bigoted statements, sexist names, intolerant charges, etc., it became apparent that these low-level men were determined to see their excrement in print ...even though it clearly showed them to be uneducated goons. It was sickening.
When I took a break for major surgery, I requested that we withhold comments until I returned in a healthy condition. The progressives understood, and acted responsibly and did not comment. The right-wing low-lifes continued with their stupid diatribes ...always showing clearly their lack of education and civility.
This is my blog. I don't have to put up with these kinds of boors. They add nothing to the subject matter. They are buffoons who lead such a pathetic life that seeing their words next to a blog is the only shining thing in their lives. Pathetic.
Of course they have the opportunity to start their own blog. The blogosphere is loaded with right-wing zealots and nutcases [and some goofs from the left as well].
This blog has made a decision. Sanity, intellect, civility, and humanity will be here. Slobbering crudeness is now gone. Get your own blog. I don't read other blogs so I won't bump into the goofballs again.
I may open up the return of comments in the future and see if there are civilized people who want to make comments that are on topic and considerate. I don't need comments from people who are not descendants of apes, they ARE apes.
