Stole this from my cousin's Facebook...

Just my opinion...Leave it alone...
If you are offended by something then leave it alone. Cracker Barrel offends you, then eat somewhere else, but I like it so leave it alone. A statue offends you, then don’t go see it, but I like to see them as my history, so leave them alone. Don’t like meat, then eat vegetables but let me eat what I want to. Don’t like Gone With The Wind, then don’t watch it or read the book, but I like them, so leave them alone. I like worshipping God, but you are offended, so don’t go to church, but let me go. I read the Bible, but you are an atheist and want Bibles banned. So don’t read it, but don’t say I can’t. Leave it alone. You don’t like the names of military bases, but I do, so leave them alone and stay away from them. You don’t like the police force, then don’t call them when you are in trouble, but leave them alone so I feel safer having them.
Why are the things you want so much more important than what I want? Are your demands greater than my likes? Is it because you use intimidation, blackmail and force to get your way- that you do? Let’s make a deal. I will leave what you like alone and you leave what I like alone and the world will be a better place for everyone.
Don't like what I post, scroll on by and leave it alone as I do when I disagree with yours.  😊
By the way my Facebook is not public. It is set for "Friends" and friends don't intimidate each other and demand I change my opinion to match yours.
Copied and pasted because it’s exactly how I feel!!!!!

(Thanks Andy G.!)

Simon Jester. Mike, or Michelle, from "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" I've read it several times over the years. Very good book!
