Dear Annonymous

Just so everyone who reads my blog know where I stand politically... I am not Democratic... I am not Republican... I vote for the person who I feel will do the best job. Whether they are democrat, republican, white, or black. It doesnt really matter to me. I want the best man/woman for the job that I have to choose from.

To Annonymous who left the following comment on my blog:
Let me begin by saying that I have been following your blog for awhile and even had a link to yours on the side of my blog. After this post, this will no longer be the case. Your ignorance is amazing. If you really believe that George Bush alone is responsible for the state of the economy, then it goes to show that you must be of a rather low class. No one person is responsible for the state of the nation just as no one person will be the savior. There are a number of factors that come into play. Perhaps now that you have an abundance of free time on your hands you will be able to do some research and see why things are the way they are.

Your ignorance is also well documented based on the fact that you simply walk out on your boss. Why not express your concern and displeasure with them? Mention your loyalty and sacrifices and what not and tell them that you would have expected a little notice. The fact that you are upset that you weren't given any notice is evident, and yet, instead of being angry with your bosses, your most angry at George Bush? That is completely illogical.

Thanks for the past posts that you have created. It's a shame that your ignorance has forced me to stop reading and has also forced me to pull your link from my site, but I refuse to allow an ignorant person to be linked to my site.

1. Why do you hide behind being annonymous?

2. I NEVER stated that Geo. Bush alone was responsible. I stated I was angry with him and he was number one on my list. Had George Bush not been living under a rock and would have admitted almost a year ago (referring to his news conference on Feb 28, 2008) we were headed in a recession, things wouldnt be so bad now. During this press conference he stated "I'm concerned about the economy, I don't think we're headed to recession. But no question, we're in a slowdown." At that time gas was approaching $4 a gallon for most of us and when asked about this he stated "That's interesting. I hadn't heard that. ... I know it's high now."

3. You wrote, "Your ignorance is also well documented based on the fact that you simply walk out on your boss" I did not walk out on my boss. He was done speaking and had turned to walk away from me. At this time, I chose not to follow him and discuss all the details with him due to the time of day and a couple other factors about him, that even though I'm angry with him, I will not disclose publicly here. At that time, he made it apparent he did not want to discuss the situation any longer.

4. You wrote, "Thanks for the past posts that you have created. It's a shame that your ignorance has forced me to stop reading and has also forced me to pull your link from my site, but I refuse to allow an ignorant person to be linked to my site." Do you really think I give a rat's ass that you have pulled a link to my blog off yours? I never asked you to follow my blog, nor comment. You are a coward who hides behind "ANNONYMOUS", thinking you are safe. I KNOW WHO YOU ARE. If you think just because you commented under annonymous that I dont, then you are the one who is ignorant. That's the beauty of the internet.


  1. Oh PLEASE don't let this person get you upset. I could go on forever on all the ways their comment is way out of line. WHO writes such a nasty response after you tell us you just got "canned" right out of the blue? My advice is to take one look at it (roll your eyes while shaking your head) and completely disregard them.

  2. This is exactly why I follow your blog. I love to see a person stand up for themselves, speak out against a bully/stand up to the system, and I love reading the words of someone strong enough to voice their opinions and concerns. Keep up the that great fighting spirit!

  3. Brenda Thank you so much for your thoughts. It means a lot to me to know there are other people who read this blog and enjoy and learn from it. When I first read "annonymous", I did just roll my eyes and shake my head. BUT then my email box begin to fill up with others who stated they did not want to leave a public comment on here due to "annonymous'" comment. I then felt MY blog was being controlled by someone else. And that I will not stand for.

    Let's stop and think about this person a little. She/He doesnt want someone as ignorant as me associated with them, so they remove their link to my blog. BUT they also dont want all of MY followers to know what an ass they are for fear if any of MY followers are also following her/him they will quit. Or better yet, flame their site/blog. ;)

    Everyone's compassionate and thoughtful comments have been greatly appreciated. They warmed my heart and made me feel better knowing that there are people who still care out there for others.

    I wish more people who read my blog would comment, even if it was to only say "Thanks for posting this" or "Just flying through, Hi".

  4. chicagolandia ahhhh, you know me so well my dear! Your support is appreciated.

  5. Shelly thanks for taking the time to read it.

  6. Amen Lisa!

    This is exactly why I took my blog private! UGH! Anonymous people who don't have the guts to say what is on their mind out in the open. Doesn't matter whether people agree with what you have to say or not, at least you say it and don't hide under the the label of ANONYMOUS!

  7. precious You said it! I even wondered if my hateful anonymous isnt the same one who was commenting on your blog.

  8. Hi Lisa,

    Could Be! Who knows when they are anonymous! I sent you on e-mail and am sending you another.


  9. awesome post LB....people can be so inconsiderate....


    sorry I post anonymous...but I don't have a blog and can't figure out how to post without anonymous...so I just sign my name...

  10. "I wish more people who read my blog would comment, even if it was to only say "Thanks for posting this" or "Just flying through, Hi"."

    Lisa, I think all of us bloggers wish this. I also know that we all love comments that may include opinions that don't agree with what we say. Flamers, haters and the like, on the other hand, are unnecessary. How interesting would it be if "Anon" came back and showed his/her true "identity."

    I love reading the blogs of someone with strong opinions, but how will I ever know who this anonymous blogger is? Hmmm? Anon? you there? ;oP

  11. Lisa,
    Excellent job at calmly and factually stating your point of view. Well said!

  12. Lisa,
    You Go Girl! Go get'em!

    *more hugs* just in case you need them.

  13. You tell em girlfriend! rock on!

  14. Just dropping by to show my support. I also drop by your blog when I get slow time at work & enjoy "visiting".

  15. Don't let anonymous get you down.

    Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. You are very smart and I know that you will overcome any obstacles you might encounter and come out even stronger.

  16. Lisa - so sorry about the layoff & all that you have been dealing with the last few days. I read the anon comments & wanted to jump on the poster, but someone beat me to it ;)

    You have a right to be upset - just turn that anger-energy into something positive for yourself, and you will be fine. Use that intensity to search out a new job, pick up a new hobby, or just spend time with friends & loved ones for awhile & reflect on how much they love you. Good luck!

  17. those crazies do pop up once in a while......little troublemakers :p

    keeping you in my thoughts, something great will come around the corner for work! you're blessed to have such wonderful couponing/frugalists skills already :)

  18. Thank you everyone for all your support, hugs and prayers. They are greatly appreciated.

  19. I just found your blog today. I am sorry to hear about you losing your job.

    As far as the anonymous person's post, it is your blog, you have the right to express your opinion. It is a free country where we have freedom of speech. Try not to let people like that upset you.

    BTW, I am a follower now.

  20. Oh My Gosh .. I cannot believe how emotional THAT person became. We cannot all agree with each other, and I to have come across a few blogs I have chosen tono longer follw. BUT, I would never place a comment like that, actually I would never comment. I simply choose not to read the blog/site. That's how an educated person deal's with it. It's too easy for people like ANON to hide behind a "wall". I hope they see their own ignorance and show their name. Keep up the good work on your blog!

  21. Plus you have site meter and 9 times out of 10 that shows you exactly where the person originated from ... silly ANON!
