Good Morning Friends & Digital Neighbors! Happy Tuesday Supporters, Members and Visitors!
Some snarky quotes from "The 2,548 best Things Anybody Ever Said." Snarky comments can be a lot of fun, but calling someone stupid, describing them as idiots or morons without stating why you think they are stupid, idiotic or moronic doesn't really make you snarky as much as just a condescending person.
In my opinion wit or snark engages with ideas, habits or practices with a sense of questioning the absurd in the criticized subject. Condescension just dismisses the person and ideas/habits/practices as beneath engagement. Condescension is not witty, not snarky, it is just dismissive and smug. As you can probably gather by now, I am not a fan of condescension. The Condescending are most deserving or mockery and verbal taunting. Once they are made to feel stupid, become the subject of laughter from others, their condescension usually pivots to anger. If they believe they can exercise their anger over you without risk, they will. If they can't, they will usually go searching for more tribal members to try and use the mob to intimate you, if they fail they will wait. In the waiting might be your one small window of opportunity to deliver the infamous "red pill" not so much as to persuade them to your point of view but rather just to invite them to question their once held unquestioned condescending convictions. I doubt we are headed into an era where changed minds or hearts happens more frequently, I think the mobs will prevail too often. The internet seems to be the current arena for the most frequent mob violence against others. It is the worst part of internet venturing, something meant to connect others used to isolate, silence or destroy them instead. Just Tuesday morning rambling. On to the quotes and a barn. Thanks for being here. 😊

Hey @SEPTUAGENARIAN, hope they make you smile
Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
Good Morning Neighbors from across the Local's landscape! Happy Sunday Refugees, Early Birds, Later Dayers, Conversants, and Lurkers! Hey there Phamily, Dawn Patrol, Day Walkers, Supporters, Members and Visitors! Hello again Triggeratti, Fascinating People and Beautiful Bigots! I am sure there are other wonderous Local's communities with their own vibe and rhythm, but there is only so much time to visit even the ones I favor.
A late start to the day, I was content to listen to the Dark Horse Podcast before hoping further online. I am sure I will be posting it later at Padre's. Some really good discussion about the gaslighting of the last two years. Whatever the day ahead of you holds, I hope you discover joy, or more likely bring joy to the day ahead of you. A few quotes on joy for perspective on a Sunday. Have a blessed day my friends!
Long but very worthwhile analysis of the gaslighting of the last two years and a path forward after the narrative collapses, or more likely pivots as is often the case.
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you. Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
