PLEASE restrict your comments here to the debate in the subject line (Katrina and other issues of personal responsibility). If you want to leave condolences for Step, go to his new place on my blog. It’s located here. Also, for those of you who did enter comments below for the original post here for Step, I’ve copied all of them (the nice ones and even the ones with condolences and a little civil disagreement or agreement with me) over to the new post. Thank you for your patience.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you – I’ve moved Step’s post. It was getting too degrading, and was not appropriate for my post mourning my friend. Yes, the post remains the same, because I do not apologize for my sorrow nor my anger and outrage at the continue upsurge of crime stemming from the tide of Katrina. Please see here for my new rules of engagement.
Step did not deserve the downward spiral of filth and venom that was being sloshed around here by the schadenfreudes on the left. However, there was some very good, valid debate going on here about Katrina and personal responsibility, so I will leave the comments as is. Now, however, if you want to leave a comment, you must first register at my site. And even then, any posts indicating exuberance of a police officer’s death, a personal threat to me, vulgar or demeaning language about me or other women, or any other morally repugnant comments will be summarily deleted without further explanation – you’ve just been given one. Morally repugnant will be my judgment, because most of you seem to confuse moral repugnance with civil discourse.
Yes, you can still debate here, and call me a racist, fascist, pig, Nazi, or whatever other liberal code-words you all like to use when you have no other valid argument, so carry on! Be forewarned, however, I still reserve the right to delete any comment I choose. I also ask that you remain on-topic, even if you choose to call me names, because if you go off-topic like you did in this original post about Step, your comment will be deleted.
ATTN: Law enforcement officers, friends of LEOs, my friends, and anyone who wishes to leave condolences for Step, you may do so here. However, you too will have to register first. If you do not want to register, you can send your thoughts to my email address MsUnderestimated@gmail.com, and I will post them for you. Also, all very nice condolences, warm wishes, and heart-felt thoughts will be moved over to Step’s new post as quickly as I can, so be patient. There are, thankfully, many of those.
Sorry it has to be this way, but some of you have given me no choice.
And as I said above, you can still comment or debate here or elsewhere, or call me names, etc., so carry on! It’s very revealing to allow you all to show your social acumen (or lack thereof) to the rest of the world so you can all be seen for the exact whackjobs you are. Happy trolling!
