Can’t say it is because they thought older posts were less likely to be monitored or if it is because of some automated software.
Nor can I confirm or deny that I am slowly unraveling because I see it as something that is happening at light speed but has taken decades.
Yeah, it is a contradiction, probably one of the great contradictions of my life.
But that is ok because life is a giant contradiction and I am living it hard.
I Might Be That Guy
I am somewhere between supreme confidence that I am going to exceed expectations and life is about to explode in a way that might not be real comfortable but I can’t tell you where.
What will be is going to be and much of it doesn’t matter because no matter what I do or how I do it the control over the situation is nonexistent.
All I can do is control how I respond and or react.
I still get comments and letters from people who dislike my words and my writing.
That is ok because I am not here to make everyone happy or ask to be loved by all. It is one of the most important lessons I can teach my children.
Be who you are.
I understand why they sometimes don’t like hearing it because it is hard.
Be who you are means taking a a risk and giving people a chance to reject you.
Happens to me all the damn time.
I hear a million reasons why I am not who I could or should be and how that might hurt me in a million different ways.
Thing is I hate not being me more.
That hurts far more than capitulating.
I haven’t always been this willing to just let go and let it all hangout but I haven’t been afraid to be different either.
It has been sort of a seesaw where I swung one way or another. It is not always easy to feel like you’re the oddball or screw up.
Sometimes it is easier to try and go along to get along.
That is something I have shared with my teens more than once because they see me as a guy who is unafraid to make a spectacle of himself and is willing to say/do anything.
I have made sure they understand even though I am unfiltered there are still those moments and that as crazy as I can be I know when to reel it in.
Donald Trump Hates My Blog More Than He Hates You’
I don’t know if that is true because I am not sure if Trump has read my blog.
Can’t tell you if he has stayed up at night wishing Jack Steiner would leave him alone or wondering why I choose to pick on him.
I hope he doesn’t because I haven’t begun to tear apart his stupid policy, ridiculous commentary and unhinged rhetoric.
What I have done is say he has proven that it is ok to make shit up and pretend the false facts you promote are true even when it might make you look bad.
Hell, I can’t figure out if he is that dumb, that ignorant and or that ill informed and confused.
All I know is he is some combination of those things and if he tweeted about this blog I would be besieged by wingnuts, nutjobs, conmen, thugs, ugs, bugs and nazis.
But I might find some interesting folks and cool people too. That might even include people I disagree with politically but who are still able to present a well reasoned argument for why they disagree.
