100% props to you (and your Higher Power) for overcoming and getting clean. One of my fave uncles stayed clean for over 40 years the same way. Blessings to you.
I had a similar thing happen on Facebook.
I lost track of buddy of mine in high school. He was one of the smartest people I've ever met-- a real math genius, and he and I used to play D&D and Star Trek and other role-playing games, along some other guys of the same bent. This was 27 years ago now.
So, a year ago, we re-connected on Facebook. We immediately got started talking about philosophy, religion and politics, because I post a lot of the stories I read on FR on my Facebook page.
This guy--a preacher's kid-- was borderline atheist in high school, and pretty hard-drinking, but now he was a full-blown moonbat, global warming prophet of doom, and hated anything and everything to do with the Tea Party, Christians, Jews, and anything else even connected with God. Political conservatives? The very devil, in his opinion.
I finally asked him to unfriend me after he threatened to cross four states to come to my house and "kick my ass". (What set him off was a post on public school teachers molesting kids.)
I can't change him, so it's best not to interact with people like that.
I appreciate your posts, Laz, and have for years.
I tend to rise to those sort of threats. I tell 'em to bring a lot of ammo, body armor, and food and water sufficient for a few days.
Cuz it's on.
I too appreciate your posts, Laz... And this is a highly enlightening thread. It’s one in which Freepers talk about the price we’ve paid to defend liberty.
Sort of cool to remember that when our founding fathers pledged their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” their lives really were at stake, their fortunes vast...
And their honor like steel.
Not perfect men, nor are we, but I like to think we emulate them.
