Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

"Every freeman has an undoubted right to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public; to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press: but if he publishes what is improper, mischievous, or illegal, he must take the consequences of his own temerity. To subject the press to the restrictive power of a licenser, as was formerly done, both before and since the Revolution, is to subject all freedom of sentiment to the prejudices of one man, and make him the arbitrary and infallible judge of all controverted points in learning, religion and government. "
-excerpts from Blackstone's commentary within the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment, the section regarding Freedom of Expression: Speech and Press


So, when I first retired here to Hicksville to die, I still had enough fire in my belly to know that Wrong is Wrong, and that it's my duty to speak out against it however and whenever I can. I just can't stand to see other people in pain.

After all, I'm a big believer in lighting that candle instead of simply cursing the darkness. Giving voice to the unspoken and unseen is a big part of empowering ourselves in the fight against conformity and small-mindedness. Because those who wish to maintain the status quo and allow their minds to rot and avoid development will always band together with loud and boisterous screeching. And the assertion that they are right, no matter what.

Anywho, the local fish wrapper was a real brain blaster! I was absolutely amazed at how stilted and incestuously guarded their warped way of life was. They of course were disinterested in running articles advocating thinking for ones' self or pursuing divergent thoughts and philosophies, and they refused even to print a contrary opinion in the Letters to the Editor section. So I thought, since I don't have the money to restart my paper here, I'll just post little "Love Notes" in the back of their propaganda rag. See, they were more than willing to take my money in order to post messages to their readers! Mm--hmm!

So I began a series of tidbits I hoped would be inspirational, incite discussion, or show people they weren't alone. Because make no mistake; promoting one particular brand of thinking as absolute does not abolish other brands of thinking from existence. There were others in this community with different voices being silenced and ignored.

So this went on for a while until I met with an angry refusal to run any further ads. Purportedly, 'Daddy' had come back from hospital and was pissed off that all that Faggoty Horseshit had been tainting his paper! And there had been complaints! ("Somebody's thinking different! Stop the presses!") So I would not be allowed any further space for my money, regardless of what the content of the ad was!

Just for shits and giggles, here are all of the ads I ran in their ass-wiper, exactly as they originally appeared, so as to give you a better idea of the scurrilous controversy that was nearly averted by the ever-watchful eye of the Donalsonville News. May God save us all from the horrors of the following deceptive and immoral thinking!

Peace out, Robert

"Different" isn't a bad thing

told you so.
Believe in yourself!
To live a lie
is to lose your voice
and condemn your spirit.
