Here from Michele.
Don't worry about the soapbox thing. I have done this too. Mostly mine happen when someone unfairly overgeneralizes something in a very hateful manner. That sentence made my head hurt so I think I'll just shut up for now. Nice to meet you.
PS: I just read through your tribute to your mother. So sorry for your loss, so happy you have great memories. I'm sure she would be proud of this piece.
Well, they are called comments and not "comments in which you only agree with me...", right? I think if someone posts something political, then everyone has the right to comment as they wish. I posted something on Sunday and was surprised by the number of people that disagreed with me, but that is their perogative.

Here via Michele's! I was doing just fine until I went down further and read the tribute to your mom...now I'm crying! I lost my mom 21 years ago this coming Sunday....maybe I will do a post to her as well.
You should plan a trip to Hyde Park, London and check out the soap box Sundays.
There is a section of the park called 'Speaker's corner' and anyone can stand up and speak there mind on anything and everything.
It can get lively.

Congratulations on a wonderful blog. I so agree with all the comments on Wal-Mart. They are building a new Super Wal-Mart kitty corner from their present store. We have been promised the old store will not remain empty. Anyone want to place a bet on that?
Here by way of Michele and promise to come back to read more.
Hey, ya know, if a blog entry doesnt inspire any passion, then it just ain't working... the author has to love getting opinionated feedback like yours!
Comments are fine as long as you weren't rude, insulting or vulgar. You're allowed to disagree.
As for your comments, the law states that all welfare recipients are REQUIRED to be working within 6 weeks of filing, and you can only collect for 2 years.
I'm sorry about your loss and feel your heartache.
Ah, my friend does work....long enough to keep her benies then she gets fired or leaves and goes back to school to be retrained for something else...
I've done the same thing on other blogs. No one said you had to agree with the post - so stay on that soapbox! By the way, I couldn't agree more with what you said.
We all do what we must to get by. Kudos to those of us who do it on our own! That means you my dear!
Don't worry about soap boxes while on my blog. I quite often find myself jumping up and down upon them myself. Then I catch myself and have to write several posts of non-sense just to make up for it.
Feel free to rant all you like on the comments of my blog, I'm not easily offended, even by people who swear at me vigorously.
I'm a recovering single mother trying desperately to see humor in my day to day toil while simultaneously avoiding reality as much as humanly possible.
