Just in case ya didn't know.

Okay, People, this is not a chat room, this is a blog for me to write about issues that concern me, and you to comment on those issues. You are welcome to comment as long as it's relevant, clean and respectful of others on here. I think I've set a standard of treating others with respect and I expect the same of those who post on my site. Whenever dialogue is open, please keep it short and to the point. I don't like these ridiculous 5 page posts that are much longer than my originals and completely unrelated as well.

I can delete posts and will do so if I feel it necessary. I like my blog and whatever I feel I need to do to keep it to my liking, I will.

In fact, I'm exercising that right to delete now, as I've gotten rid of the 104 comments on "How 'Bout Them Apples." After about 10 comments, it was safe to say that no one was on topic any longer, not to mention, the dialogue became disrespectful and the arguments would have horrified any speech or debate teacher. All I have to say to those on the left is, "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar." Keep it to the topics I post about and keep it friendly, or don't post at all. 'Cause I'll delete it.

The Mighty Blog Owner,

ONCE AGAIN, I'm reminding members of the left, if you cannot post something constructive or intelligent, don't post. I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." Yeah, kind of like that.

I will delete any post that I don't think contributes to constructive dialogue, or that veers too far off topic. If you really need me to spell out posting rules, I'll do that in my spare time. In the meantime, keep it courteous and intellectually stimulating. Irresponsible posts, again, will be deleted.

I figure since you're all above the age of 5, I won't have to repeat this again.
