“Friends?”

I had an experience this past weekend where I was sitting around the campfire with a bunch of “friends”. The conversation swung around to current events and all of a sudden one of the “friends” spouted off with “you guys better be quiet because you are pissing me off.” It wasn’t that he didn’t want to talk about the subject, but you see, he was on the other side of the subject and a couple of us were talking from a more conservative viewpoint and he has a very leftist viewpoint. And so, after he said that, he started in on his take of the event and started talking about how he would just kill everybody that was there. Shoot and shoot and shoot until they were all dead. We quickly changed the subject and went on to play nice because as the little meme says sometimes you have to shut your mouth in order to keep the peace.

Johnny Cash’s song “Oney” came on the radio a few minutes ago about how he had a boss that was constantly picking on him and breathing down his neck telling him he wasn’t doing good enough and how now that it was his retirement date, after he retired, he was going to walk in there and clobber him. I spent most of my career working between two of these f-ing “Oneys”. I am done with them, done with that kind of people, I will no longer associate with people like that. Do I think that they’re entitled to their own opinion and can differ in opinion from me? Most certainly, but they can do it from way over there. They don’t have to do it near me, and I don’t have to put up with their crap, telling me that I can’t have an opinion cuz it differs from theirs. I don’t have to put up with their crap telling me that I need to be quiet cuz, I’m making them angry. Well, when they talk about shooting everybody and killing everybody, they’re making me angry, and I got no use for that especially when the people that they plan to shoot are the people that I consider on my side of the political spectrum. And so, as the other meme says if you don’t speak out, the problem will never go away.

And I have decided that I will no longer camp, fellowship, or speak to “friend” number one who doesn’t allow me to say anything cuz it makes him angry, it pisses him off. I have no use for anybody who will not allow me to express my opinion because it’s different than theirs. That is typical liberal politically correct ideology, and I won’t do it. I won’t allow it. I will not subject myself to that kind of crap with those kinds of morons. So once again, if necessary, I am prepared to walk away. I would rather go it alone and face the challenges and adventures solo than with people that I cannot trust. Anyone who holds with political correctness and that ideology cannot be trusted to do the right thing in a time of emergency.
