Visting Around the Internet

There is one thing I enjoy about blogs, you can get diverse views on subjects, learn something new, or just be entertained. Most of the blogs I read center on Virginia.

Yesterday, I went visiting, to a blog that always has interesting content. In fact, I can't keep away from reading it. It is written by DL Ennis from Sweet Brier. His latest post was on book banning, as a person involved in library science, DL Ennis has presented an important view point, in which I am much in agreement. There are other sites I read that I do not agree with, I read them anyway. I listen to their position, and rather than just discarding their ideas, I try to look through their eyes and see how they arrive at their conclusions. If they have a valid point, I appreciate the opportunity to understand it.

Then I ran across this site. A site of pure hate, from Roanoke Virginia. I did read it, and tried to find the logic of his position. And I also learned things. I learned the face of the enemy, ignorance. I learned the falseness of his reasoning, and that encouraged me to improve mine. I learned that some people have defects in compassion, caring, and promote ill will. What I learned most was what not to be, a valuable lesson in itself.

The site from Roanoke, tells me to know my enemy, and hopefully yours. I respect his right to say whatever he pleases. The more he says reinforces my will not to be like him.

Thank you for your comments. Currently the owner of the hate site is being sued, will be interesting to see how that turns out.

This comment originated in Roanoke Virginia, Mr. White the owner of the hate blog in Roanoke is currently being sued for 800,000 dollars. It is apparent that the writer of the last comment, has a vested interest in overthrow.com. His superiority can be noted by his elegant use of language.

I would dare say that those that presuppose their superiority over others, is a compensation mechanism for their own inferiority. Sadly, they also lack the ability to realize this.

Overthrow.com still rules, you still suck, and this is only about the millionth time Bill White has been sued, so stick it up your ass.

I only glanced at overthrow.com ...enough to know that it wasn't something I was interested in delving into further.

If the last commentator, who is hiding behind anonymity, has something good to say about the racist attitudes proclaimed on this site, it would be nice if he would share them instead of regaling us with his limited vocabulary...alas, maybe there is nothing worth saying.
