Last week, we had a couple of different problems with the “comments” section of the blog. If anyone has a problem this week, please let me know so we can try to get that dang thing to work every time.

It's a royal PITA! But, with your help. maybe we can get it straightened out.

Since I did receive so many comments, last week, that didn't make it to the blog, I'm going to publish just a few of them below. Some have been slightly edited for space - and to avoid World War III.

(And, BTW - it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see WW III start right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. - among our own citizens!)

Comments on "Word Perceptions"

Subject: Slanguage

Good Grief! I had NO idea that tea-bagger had the slightest sexual connotation! I thought it was a misled right wing nut-job who probably believes everything Fox Noise spews out.

Got some touchy readers, doncha?

Just for the record, I'm an independent conservative liberal, or liberal conservative depending on the issue, moderate (on most things). Glad we could clear that up...

Hang in there, baby!


Subject: You GO Girl! :-)

I'm extremely proud of you for telling it like it is. I am sick to death of media twists and tired of the herd following it off the cliff. How can anyone believe anything that's on TV or in the paper today without checking out the facts?

As my Texas grandmother used to say, "It all smells like the north end of a south bound skunk to me."

Love you and your work,

Subject: Apology accepted

I can't begin to tell you how relieved I was to receive your email, explaining all those horribly offensive terms and political labels.

It's so comforting to know that some people are constantly on the watch and anxious to set us straight.

To those people , I say “Let's start worrying about the actions and accomplishments of our politicians (and ourselves) rather than what label to apply.

Or put a little more to point, “Get a life!”

Keep on keepin on.

Hi jl

People are nuts aren't they? I personally love the "tea bagger" story. You should look your words up in urbandictionary.com - Now that's funny.

Love it when you get "your back up" and come back on some of the comments!


I too was unaware of the so called definition of a "tea bagger", guess at 63 I'm too old for those things! I also subscribe to your using a dictionary to find a definition, NOT the "news media" which I no longer trust for anything but the weather.

Whoopie, Hooray and Kudos for you! I am a Progressive Independent, too. My definition is the same one you use.

I wonder if [people] know how long England has practiced socialism without becoming communist. Progressives are not against any form of capitalism. Once again I look across the sea to England. Does capitalism flourish in that socialist nation? Certainly it does.

Closer to home, Canada has socialist health care, as do most progressive countries in the world.

One of my favorite sites is www.unclebrice.com

At the top of every page is:

"Those who fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it." - Winston Churchill

"Those who fail to learn from history are stupid." - Uncle Brice

Thanks for voicing your opinion. I share it, and applaud you for doing so.

Morning jl

I don't guess you are going to be politically correct all the time so don't try to please everyone or you will go nuts. I personally think your newsletter is one of the best on the net.

Good day

Comments on “Love is.”

Subject: Comment

First off, jl, thank you for another value packed issue of the ezine.

Secondly, I have got to tell you how much I loved your roses memories.

I am not really a "flower person" BUT the roses I have gotten that really meant something when they were given stick in my memory as well and they are just so special, both the roses and the memories.

Subject: Roses

A wonderful and moving story - both about the roses and your daughter's wedding. Thanks for sharing, and bringing back some emotional and heart warming memories. What joy our daughters bring!

I don't comment often, but I need to tell you how your "Valentine's" message moved me. It was beautiful, jl, and I thank you for taking the time to write it.

Thanks again for all you do and especially for this latest newsletter.

Be well -- be in peace,

Hey jl,

"Love, once born, never dies. It is eternal. It can be called upon at any time, and it will always return."

Very profound. Loved it.

Best to you, Dennis Gaskill
