Today, Saturday, we had a horrific discussion that I don't believe was only you. It sounded like you for the most part, but I've spoken with someone for many years who I thought was you, and that rude, insane person that accused me of totally stupid and bad things DID NOT sound like you at all. I do believe I know who it is.
You've known for a long time that I'm Independent and vote for who I want---not a Party. Most of the time the person, despite running on one of the Parties, has a varied approach and I'm satisfied with them. So I am not against one or the other; in fact, I originally thought Hillary had the varied approach I thought would be applicable, but now realize that she was primarily duplicating Obama and Wall St., and now my opinion of her has changed...and none of that has anything to do, and shouldn't with our friendship.
In fact, never in my entire life has political opinion ever been a consideration for friendship, because we never talk about it (nor does it ever come up with family). I've known both family and people of both persuasions, and I thought they were good people---you know why? ..Because personality traits and general type of person come first with me and those I know--not Politics.
If that woman or anyone has tried to get between our friendship, I hope you know that what she said about Politics is an extreme view for anyone to have. Also, because I'm not hard Left or Right does not mean I'm not at certain times---it depends on the person. Nearly everyone we've seen is both at times, because they have to be, or they try to let some of the issue happen rather than all of the time or not at all. ..But again, despite all of that, friends don't base their likes or dislikes on Politics--because other things that cause their friendship to be quality come first and foremost, and it doesn't happen necessarily that political views on every issue will be exactly the same, anyway.
I hope we can remain friends. I've always liked talking with you, and I think about Bee often. I love your photos, and would like to be considered one of the commenters as the other women on your articles. If you--(only you), want to remain friends, and would permit me to act as a friend like the others that comment on your pics, I would like to be considered. I don't want tears and drama as today, just simple fun and commenting as it used to be.
Please let me know here, if something changed, if you really want me to leave, and if our friendship for commenting is still in tact. I miss hearing about Bee, what's going on with her, too! Hope all is well!
