Just Venting and Ranting

*DISCLAIMER* This is my personal blog. My On-line journal. I choose to make it public and choose to allow people to read it for entertainment purposes. After all, my life is just a camera crew shy of a reality TV show...or a soap opera... your choice. The views and opinions expressed here are just that MY OPINIONS and are therefore covered by the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech. If you don't like what I write here, feel free to click that cute little X in the top right hand corner of your computer screen and see your way out of here. If you chose to stay, understand these are my opinions. You don't have to agree with them, but you can not shut me up.

Having said that, I am going to rant here. A lot. So sit down, get comfortable, and hold on. It's gonna be a bumpy ride.

I got an email today from C1 regarding my blog.

In the interest of keeping things between us civil and the lines of communication open, you need to stop writing about me. While you are certainly free to express whatever opinions you wish, making false statements and omitting facts to make yourself look better is an entirely different matter. If you should choose not to stop, I will be forced to defend myself by whatever means my attorney and I deem necessary.

I have written several scathing replies to this email but never sent any of them. Why? What's the point? To argue a moot point with him? I have the right to post what I want, and I'm not going to argue with someone who thinks he's always right.

But, I do need to get this out of my system. I do need to formulate some response just so I can move on. What better place to do that than right here. so you all can enjoy my amusing wit. (besides, if I leave it in my email drafts, I'll be tempted to send it.)

My comments will be in Red. Just so you know.

In the interest of keeping things between us civil and the lines of communication open, you need to stop writing about me. In the interest of keeping things civil and the lines of communication open? Uh yeah, the lines of communication only seem to go one way. From you to me. You dictating to me how I am supposed to live my life, and parent our child. Our divorce has been final for over 10 years now. Last time I looked at the papers, it says that I was granted the same freedom you were... and that is the freedom to live my life free from any harrassment and interference from you. So WTF? Here you are telling me what I need to do. You, had you *asked* me to stop writing about you, I would have considered it. But since you have told me what I need to do, well, who the fuck are you to tell me what I need to do? While you are certainly free to express whatever opinions you wish, making false statements and omitting facts to make yourself look better is an entirely different matter. Making false statements. If you would be so kind as to point out which false statements you are specifically referring to I will either A) Defend the validity of those statements or B) take them down if I can not prove them. As for omitting facts to make me look better... Hello? My blog, my spin doctor. I'll spin the situation any way I see fit and yeah, you can bet I'm going to spin it in my direction. Feel free to post comments of your own on here disputing my version of things. Feel free to start your own blog and spin things in your direction. I think you suffer from a GOD complex, in which you think you are God, and you can control me, my actions and my life. I don't believe in God. Therefore, I don't believe in you. If you should choose not to stop, I will be forced to defend myself by whatever means my attorney and I deem necessary. Defend yourself from what, pray tell? Exactly what/who are you going to defend yourself against? People you've never met? People who read my blog. OK, first of all, I don't use your real name. Therefore the only people who could possibly know your true identity are those who are close to me in real life. Those people already know you, and have formed their own opinions of you. I'm sure they are closer to my opinion of you than they are to your own opinion of yourself. But they are free to form their own opinions because..guess what? They have their own minds. And there is nothing you can do to stop that. There are I'm sure, a lot of other people from around the world (Yes around the world...the whole entire world) that read this blog. They don't know you from Adam, or Joe Blow on the street. And I'm sure they don't care to either. This is a place for me to vent and it's for entertainment purposes only. Defend yourself. It's a well documented fact that the Supreme Court of the United States has failed time and time again to legislate and control what is on the internet. Why? Yeah, because to do so would interfere with everyone's freedom of speech. Just because you don't like what I say and don't agree with what I say does not give you the right to stop me from saying it. The only right you have in regards to that is to once again, click that cute little X in the top right hand corner of your computer screen and see your way out of here.

Odd that right below is this rant is a link to the VA hospital removing someone's testicle. Things that make you go "hmmmm."

Limpy
I never even thought of that, and I doubt he'll see it and catch the implication, but yeah, he should probably take notes.

heather said...

Good for you. Personally, I think posting your response publicly where he can read it and know that everyone else is as well - is FAR better than emailing him back.

Bravo!!!
