Rarely do I bring up people's names for an article. But Robert and Jerry so perfectly epitomize so many of America's problems, that I could not resist using them. As both of them are quite dull and cannot understand in the least how their beliefs are at all in error, I am sure they don't mind. I've been carefully observing them both for six months now, and it's high time their nonsense is addressed. They've been sitting on Robert's Trump post sniping about all of us who are wise enough to vote for Trump like a bunch of gossipy housewives for the past few months. Robert won't be caught dead on anyone else's post. I guess he is too good for that. His posts are among the longest in WB history, with some comments reaching 1,924!! Now brevity is the soul of wit, so sitting and talking to no point is not to be commended. His posts, unfortunately, for his age are like the orator who has a flood of words, and a drop of reason. I will begin with a short analysis of my interactions with both of them and then proceed with the errors that they have in common with millions of other Americans. Once these errors are addressed in a few, the wise will learn, the fools will ignore it, as they usually do.
When I first got on WB, on May 23rd of this year, it took 6 days for Jerry to post his post on The First Amendment and Free Speech. When I read the title, I was intrigued and hopeful about what it could be about. I imagined this would be someone who understood America's history and realized how important the First Amendment was. Imagine my surprise when I learned that Jerry believed Free Speech meant the right to get rid of speech you don't like. I am 100% convinced none of our Founders had that in mind when they created the First Amendment. Jerry and I went back and forth, and he began freely deleting my comments. So on a post on the First Amendment he began interfering with my free speech. And he saw no irony in this at all. Thought it was perfectly normal, and swore Ben Franklin and the rest had this in mind when they put together our Bill of Rights. Ari Silverstein brilliantly told Jerry, " The suggestion that in the spirit of the First Amendment some speech should be silenced because it drowns out speech by others is laughable. Equally laughable is choosing the title “First Amendment & Free Speech” as if there was a difference between the two. The more appropriate title for your article should be something like “The right to free speech needs more limits” or “The first amendment needs limits.”
As it relates to bullying, I’m sick of all the whining. You’re a grown man conversing with other grown men over cyberspace. Stop behaving like a nine year old girl who was told she has cuties. ", and Mike Haluska observed, "Guys - I think we really need to clear up what we mean by "bullying" somebody on a Frakkin' internet blog! If you're that sensitive about what somebody 1000 miles away writes about you you're probably never going to meet, you're oversensitive. Man Up out there, guys! Sticks and stones, remember????". Of course, our resident Stalinist, James Convey chimed in to say how speech should be limited as well. We all know how James Convey feels about free speech:) If you don't know yet, go on his posts and disagree with him strongly and you'll soon find out:) But that did not stop Jerry. He has not posted since this post on May 29th, not sure of the reason. He now runs off to Robert's post to have gossip sessions on everyone else on WB and Trump supporters and why supporting Hillary is so superior. Jerry is a very proud man and swears by his "education". He has the insight to say that I am "not educated". He does not understand that any Tom, Dick, and Harry can learn as much as his college taught him, and a whole lot more with discipline and determination for free at the local library. That thought has apparently never crossed his mind. He then imitated Marilyn French and took his many years of lawyers experience out to the internet to see what he could dredge up about me. He found out what political candidates I contribute to, and he found my dozens of letters to the local newspaper. Nothing that will add to anything I have said on WB. Anyone who reads what I say has known all this for months, but it's news to Jerry, and he gets into a tremendous fit of excitement and posts this on Robert's post, and his fellow communist, James Convey's. There are a number of societal lessons, which will be discussed later.
Robert Wendell, has some of the longest posts on WB with comments, and some of the most viewed, and most liked. One of the first indications that something is not right is he is following James Convey. James Convey is one of the most unstable people on WB, who is constantly dashing off to tattle to the FBI and Canadian authorities on people who disagree with him. He takes it to a whole different level and claims they are a threat to his grandchildren, though no one on WB knows who his grandchildren are, where they live, or has ever thought about interacting with them period. But this does not bother Robert, he is an admirer of James. Robert has four of the top ten most liked, and most commented on articles on WB since it's inception. His article on Trump has over triple the comments of the next person in the top ten, with Roberts having 1,925 and Mike Haluska having 620. His writing is unwieldy and ponderous. He claims to be a Christian, but supports the Democrat party, apparently unaware that the Democrat party stands for principles what will take any practitioner straight to hell. I at first viewed Robert as an expert of sorts, due to his methodical, dry writing and his advanced age. But I soon learned that years do not always indicate wisdom. As Elihu said to Job, so I say to Robert, "I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion. I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom. But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment." When I began conversing with him, it was a credit that he did not imitate his friend James Convey's example and delete what he does not like. However, he did begin to suspect, as nearly every liberal does, whether I was homosexual or not. I am extremely tired of having to defend my sexuality against stupid charges that are only malicious attempts of a person who has no arguments left and so must resort to illogical ad hominems. As the reader knows, I have never thought of or done anything homosexual in my life, and I am offended at the idea that I am guilty until proven innocent of something I have never done. Robert suspected that because I was a Christian, and because Catholic priests molested children, that there was a likelihood I was homosexual. He is totally wrong, and the logic behind that is illogical. Robert claims he is a Christian but his belief system is nothing close to what the New Testament advocates. He believes in man made global warming and believes Trump's platform is bad for the United States. Both premises are false.
So what can we learn from Robert and Jerry? First; that age does not always mean wisdom. Second; that college educations are often quite useless, as Jerry seems to be in such a rush to inform us of, yet is unaware of himself. Third; pride is quite destructive, and often those who think they see are the blindest. Fourth; groupthink is alive and well in the United States. Fifth; It is wise to examine why we believe what we believe so the whole world does not see our views as false, and yet we believe they are the truth. Sixth; gossiping about others in private is not wise. Seventh; liberal elites are snobs Eighth; notice the staunchest liberals on here are all white elites. James Convey, Marilyn French, Robert Wendell, and Jerry Reiss. With the exception of Robert, they are all the most likely to delete comments from their posts for arbitrary reasons. Ninth; Let this be a lesson to the young, to learn history outside of your colleges and schools, and to not watch television, so you don't end up like Robert and Jerry. Tenth; It's never too late to be what you might have been.
