I'm not naming them. I am not defending them. I am applauding them for the restraint shown and the fact that they point out truth.
They should not be stained by my essence.
I once had a sigline that stated outright, "My Granfather was an asshole, my Dad was an asshole and so am I". Honesty is a strange thing it is appreciated by some and offends others. Being honest about your opinions and not giving a fuck about what others believe you should think or do rankles a segment of society, so be it.
I've lived a long life, probably too long because you should never trust anyone over thirty and I passed that milestone long ago.
One last point.
I do not deserve special treatment and neither do any of you. We all deserve respect and the ability to provide same. What we also deserve in this life is to point out certain facts, not in question and not be harassed for doing so.
So to my compadres and everyone that may consider me the enemy.
