Is it fair and correct to be deleting answers/comments and blocking people?
Have you ever felt like the government doesn't really care what you think? Do you really believe that Congress cares what you think?
Morley visited her congressman’s Facebook page & posted; “Your vote yesterday was unthinkably irresponsible and does not begin to account for the thousands of constituents in your district who rely upon many of the services and provisions provided for them by the ACA,”
The next day, her comment was deleted and she was blocked.
Isn't this how revolutions become more likely when people are unable to govern themselves with representation?
What is your point. The example that you give doesn't help. First, a single person cannot claim to represent more than themselves.
There were no specifics in her comment, and it was just a whine. She can seek her retribution by not reelecting him, that is the American Way.
And you are the representative of the "American Way' as a single person? You don't have a point, only a blunt object. ( still love to troll ya tho')
back at you. The diff is that I didn't make the comment she did. That is Bluntly my Point.
It is the American way to complain - nuff said
I didn't write this question that is complaining about something. You did! checkmate
That's the problem Brad, this isn't a game - winning is not the point, gaining knowledge and understanding is. That takes discussing things and questioning paradigms.
It is a game for the left. They don't discuss anything. And you dn discuss my original comment, you attacked me. That is not a discussion, that is a deflection. I still win!
I am concerned by the reported actions taken by staff of her congressional representative. At least they took some action (which is too rare) though the actions seem regrettable in a case where opinions matter. Do us the favor of saying which congressional staff took these actions, and let's query the staff as to why. More specifics will eliminate what appears to be too broad a brush.
There is more to democracy then just voting. If that's all you do then you are not doing enough. Citizens need to be constantly be hyper-vigilent to defend themselves against the oppressive Gov't.
Why complain? 3x reasons;
(1) The joy of speaking out against something you judge to be wrong
(2) the joy of possibly finding a community which shares your judgment
(3) the possibility that like-minded people will find each other and act in concert to make changes.
Because it was taken down & poster blocked shows serious lack of concern for a so-called & self described 'servant' of the people.
It is one of our rights as Americans to voice our disapproval of our government and the manner in which issues are handled in government. But if we complain only to those who will listen but have no power to make changes, we are wasting our voices. That is why it is important to contact those who work for us in Washington. That is also true on the state level. - mobridgetribune
Whining, deflecting, supporting the left biased media, the embedded exec br Obama appointees that leak classified info. This goes beyond disagreement, these are actions supporting taking down a sitting pres because the left lost the election!
Prayers work more miracles than anger and hatred. It is my belief that right will always triumph in the end. May God's will be done, just as it surely will be. (A little religious note on a Sunday)

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and informative comments. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.What makes...

<link snipped>While enjoying my tribute to ImKarn23, I've been dealing with a somewhat awkward sitituation. Someone who calls herself Diva43, left a hateful and horrible comment on my Hub about Imkarn23. This is a purely personal issue but after the many comments left afterwards, I decided to...

Sometimes I come across hubs that are well written but have a glaring grammatical mistake or other error. I usually leave a note along the lines of "---- needs to be fixed up, Feel free to delete this."Just wondering if too many "deleted comments" could ever have a detrimental...

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...
