16. If you HAD made that clear, I wouldn't have taken ANY offense.
But please stop and remember that we do get all kinds of serious garbage flung at us by the troll patrol, and absent any explanation, plus not knowing you from Adam, what else was I to think? Also, reduced funds forced me to retire in a comparatively low cost of living area - a remote corner of the MidWest - and that unspeakable website reflects exactly how most of these people 'think'. I've had trash thrown in my yard, seriously threatening anonymous phone calls, and even bottles thrown at me from passing cars. Sometimes people literally on sight start to scream at me in public, and it's all because they hate and fear President Obama, and they know they're in for a verbal battle when they do. I had to quit riding the local mini-bus which is partly government funded, because of the crazies on there. The bus driver even filed a false police report against me claiming I'd brought a gun on board and threatened to shoot people. Since he waited two days to say anything, fortunately nobody took him seriously. Etc etc etc. So for good reason, I've got a shorter fuse than I used to about anti-Obama crap.
Yes, please next time make your intent clear. I don't like to fight any more than necessary. Absent attacks on my beloved President, I can actually be a pretty congenial person.
