Fancy Coffee Friday: I Agree To Disagree

27-jan-2017

Opinion
o·pin·ion
əˈpinyən/

A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
1. the beliefs of views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing.
2. an estimation of the quality or worth of someone or something.

Apparently, last week’s post struck a nerve with some readers. I don’t think I express a rigid opinion very often on this blog, but it is funny to see the fall-out when I do express one.

I also find it funny that some people get so bent out of shape over an opinion of another that they “storm off”. It’s almost as if people fail to see that opinions can change if the holder of said opinion is presented with facts to dispel the beliefs they once held. I’m talking actual facts, too, not “alternative facts” ala George Orwell.

So, if you found last week’s post offensive and you’re still here – thank you for having an open mind. I encourage everyone under this new regime administration to remain vigilant. Hold your legislators to task. And call bullshit on the lies.

And, since the movie “Braveheart” (a movie about Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace) saw it’s 20th anniversary last year, I leave you with this today:


The Amusing Muse is a writer who would like to remind readers of this, her personal blog, that this is her “home”, and you ARE free to leave whenever you want. Also, not sorry about the cat hair – they’ve been here for the last 18 years and that’s not going to change until they’re dead. Besides, there will still be cat hair around long after that.

  1. Wouldn’t it be sad if we all though alike. But I do believe the legislators are most of our problem, not said puppet, no matter how bad he looks.:)

    • I agree that legislators are a major issue – however, the puppet is exhibiting behaviors that have every appearance of being mentally unhinged. Having dealt with someone who exhibited the same behaviors for the last three years – it’s going to get far uglier before it gets better.

    I feel that some of your comments were aimed at me, and I admit that I did not follow all of the comments possibly written. Actually I thought that I unsubscribed, but Friday I received the e-mail about your new blog.

    I didn’t get bent out of shape by your attitude because I hear it all of the time with the meltdown on the left. When I hear rhetoric and personal insults like the ones in your previous blog, I know that there is no chance of reasonable discourse or persuasion. The choice is to either politely acknowledge it or stop listening to it. With the constant attacks in the MSM, I’ve chosen to tune it out.

    I wasn’t offended but I did call BS. We have been lied to by so many politicians over the last few decades that most people don’t even recognize the truth when it is right in front of their noses. This administration is willing to call out BS from Congress, the press, and anyone else. So far this guy is keep him promises. How many politicians can say that especially in their first week!?
