You’re an Extremist

So, if you are reading this, you are an extremist…  Last week, Janet and I spent the week in the home country enjoying the sunshine and massive quantities of food wherever we went in the Midwest.  When I tried to regale you all with the tales of the Pumpkin Pie, I learned that I could not log in from the USA.  Not log in to WordPress from the land of the Free and Home of the Brave???  Turns all of what I remember about freedom of speech from the old days is gone…  Gone??? How can that be???

So, anyone can go to WordPress and tell them that some random blogger out there is an extremist, and they will take what you have to say on face value and brand you an extremist and you will have very limited logon capabilities.  So I learned:

  • if you want honesty in government, you are an extremist…
  • if you want dialogue on anything controversial, you are an extremist…
  • if you promote anything that requires political considerations, you are an extremist…
  • if you think that there is anything wrong with the government taking children away from adoptive parents because of the political party they belong to, you are an extremist…
  • if you think there is anything wrong with lunatic Americans coming here and telling us how we are going to screw up the Olympics, you are an extremist…
  • if you think that there is something wrong with government trying to stop the use of social media, you are an extremist…
  • if you criticise the conduct of your local Borough Council, you are an extremist…
  • if you subscribe to the conservative ideal, you are an extremist…

So is the solution is only dialoguing about the size of my moustache and our favourite recipes?  Let’s hope not…  So, if you go to the US and try to log into your local WordPress site and it doesn’t work, you’re an extremist…
