It seems my right to take control of my blogs has been questioned, mostly as a result of what I did recently with one of my blogs.  Here's how I see things. The MHN has given me the privilege of doing my blogs, and as far as I'm concerned, as long as I don't  violate their rules in how I run my blogs, then all methods are fair. I do plead guilty to not only hijacking others blogs, but participating with others when a hijacking is done. I have apologized to the other bloggers and have make it a rule for myself not to participate in any hijacking. I think zook said it best in this particular blog.   http://www.mountainhomenews.com/blogs/15...

I think I have said enough on this subject.

CJW, you missed my point completely. What I did was an exercise to get some peoples attention. You DID notice didn't you that I reposted the entire unedited blog. If I have been abrasive towards you, I'm sorry. Let's put it this way, Mike and I often disagree on certain topics, but he has never thrown the term Liberal at me. Use of the term "A typical liberal" will get me going faster than you can spit. I thought you would have noticed that by now. I'm sure you remember a term that was used towards you that I'm sure you found very offensive. The person who made that comment is gone. I didn't approve of his comment, but there was more than enough mud slinging that night and I chose to try and stay out of it as much as possible. I did try to explain him and then was accused of condoning his actions. Did you happen to follow the link I gave? Just wondering.

CJW, have a great Thanksgiving with your family. As far as the statement I made about not a dime out of defense was made by a R member of the "committee". If that's not a lousy start I don't know what is. Like I said on another on of Kelly's blogs, this whole super committee thing is the biggest con job of all times, and WE were the ones conned.

I will plead guilty to taking a "progressive" (liberal) stance on certain social issues, and have taken heat for them without complaint. Like I said before I am a very complex person. I have a strange suspicion that you and I sat down and had coffee, it would be a very interesting meeting.

Buckshot, the author nailed it. You must admit that it can be almost impossible to any even resembling an open discussion when one or members says something is absolutely off the table, just as when the other said something else will not come off the table. Maybe the 3 of us should have coffee someday. :)

For you OK, for me that's a NO NO, recovering alcoholic. Happy Thanksgiving.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
