    I am beyond gratified that you reblogged this particular post. Thank you SO much.

    But oh how I wish the WordPress reblog function allowed for a quick editing of how much of the post to leave before adding “View original post.” I have played with shortening my intros to no avail, so I simply must trust that those who need it most will find it and read it – before they do bodily harm to someone who disagrees politically. lol 🙂

      I agree about WP and their reblog function. It also depends on the audience of the one that does the reblog. My blogs on BrewNSpew are automatically Tweeted, which your post is now on Twitter. My posts on Twitter are shared frequently and consistently because of a program I have that was designed by a fellow beBee follower. The problem is Twitter picks up my gravatar as the image which doesn’t do your post much justice until someone decides to read it. Do you have a Twitter account?

        lol – I am the long-form advocate, so -um – no! But I love the idea that a few folks on Twitter might run across it and read it. THANKS!

    Cognitive Dissonance in this election to support the lies of our President seems to thrive in the cesspool of ignorance.

    Cutting ‘corpus callosum’ to relieve patients from epilepsy has shed a greater light on this subject.

    The part of brain responsible for reason has a huge ego, it hates to change its reasons and makes us look bad.
