I am back for the time being-comments open.

A couple of things I need to share. I have found out in the last couple of days how many people hate me on the internet! I don't mean dislike or disagree I mean hate! Several of them would like to see me die apparently!

Now several of them were people I don't even know so that was especially interesting. One has hated me since 2008! I am the Mohave Rat. My real name is Ra***** *****😀. Senior over at Senior's Mess thought I would be intimidated if I was "outed" and my real name was used instead of my blog name. I am not the one hiding behind a blog name.Recently a person calling himself Jeff Jenkins has done the same thing thinking it matters to me. It doesn't.

For the record I never said a derogatory thing about Glen Filthies wife. I don't do that. He assumed that and won't admit he could possibly be wrong. I have been writing posts about religion and fanaticism since 2008 and he thought I was directing my comments toward his wife. I wasn't. No matter. He hates me, I dislike him and it is very likely to remain that way.

I am going to quit reading the blogs where I am discussed and ridiculed and insulted. It occurs to me I was motivated to correct the error but now I realize nothing I say will change what they think so the hell with it. There is a substantial list of people who are not welcome here. Their comments will never appear here ever again.

Several things said about me are untrue but I give up trying to convince those who believe them that they are wrong. for the record Billy Bullshit Cook is an annoying old fart sack and I will never be a fan of his. I have made sure he knows how I feel and I will not mention him again.

For those of you who enjoy my posts, I am back for awhile and you have Glen Filthie and Caddie and Jeff Jenkins to thank. I see no reason to stop something I enjoy doing because a few people take what I say personally.

I look forward to your comments on this and I really want to know what you think. Am I doing the right thing? Your comments are appreciated.

  2. Trying to correct trolls by idiots is definitely not a worthwhile task. I imagine we share a few of those idiots between our blogs. It took be a while to learn that not all folks are really interested in becoming educated and civil. Welcome back.

    1. I guess maybe I am stupid Barney! I always give people the benefit of the doubt and assume that they can be reasoned with but that is simply not the case. Fanatics will never listen to reason! I think I have finally learned my lesson at damned near 66 years old. I'm feeling pretty good now that I am putting food in one end and having it come out the other again! ha ha ha ha ha Thought I was going to starve to death last week! ha ha ha thanks for always being my friend. Ever get to my neck of the woods I would like to buy you dinner somewhere.

  3. Glad to have you back Rat. Your "retirement" bummed me out. Especially since I couldn't even say one last Thank You and goodbye! The fact is, some people are just no damn good so it's best to just ignore 'em! Fuck those clowns. Do what YOU want to do!

    1. I feel bad about it JL. I want the record to be correct but these people see insults where none exist!The idea that people I don't know and who don't really know me have such vehement hatred for me is disturbing. I naively thought they could eventually be reasoned with but I was wrong. Fanatics are never willing to listen to reason. thanks for always being here for me JL. You are a true friend.

  4. Outed at the Senor's Mess! Oh no! :-)
    In my world there are good people and assholes. The internet seems to be a fine place for the assholes to spread their brand of joy but if I ignore them & delete them before very long I they are gone from memory. Good enough for me.

    It's good to see you back Mr Rat!

    1. I've had my suspicions for a long time that you are smarter than me Rob.:-) I tried to have a civil conversation and got poop thrown in my face! I have learned my lesson. Don't stand to close to the cage.

  5. So glad you've decided to keep blogging. We can't let trolls expel us from the company of good minds. I've found comment moderation useful since starting blogs 8 years ago --but also use a fiendishly clever and impenetrable pseudonym, Geo., so troublemakers can't guess my real name is George.

    1. That never occurred to me! Clever alias! ha ha It is good to get comments from people who don't think I'm the AntiChrist! Even during my darkest times I don't think I'm as bad as some seem to think I am. Just human like everyone else. Fanaticism distorts perceptions and to those poor souls the monsters they see are real! Great hearing from you "Geo".

  6. WELCOME BACK MR. RAT!!! GREAT to see you blogging again! My thoughts? Hmmmm, people are a lot of things ... They can be annoying, nasty and just plain assholes. A lot of people have such a high opinion of their own self worth that they think EVERYTHING is about them!

    Well, I for one am glad you are back and GOOD for you for not letting a few haters get the best of you! KOODOS!!

    1. Dear Lady, seeing you here is a gift I treasure. Human kindness is the power of real magic!(yes, I could have used a K) Kind words contain healing properties. Thank you so much for yours.

  7. Most times I think the trolls are narcissistic assholes (oops did I say that). There is no reasoning with them, as they have no empathy and think everything is about them. Truthfully, I sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed when you get really going about political ideas, but hey, that is your right and your blog. There is a lot going on in the USA to talk about right now. I do enjoy your gardening, building and events posts, and I am glad to see you posting again. Best wishes.

    1. Many of my rants about politics are in response to troll thinking and I have now realized that there is no reasoning with them my posts should calm down quite a bit. Politicians are corrupt, not much difference between a Democrat and a Republican with they are both dishonest and their influence and vote can be bought. Just get up everyday and do the best we can with what we have and try to be kind in our dealings with others. Thank you so much my dear Canadian friend. I appreciate your kindness more than you know!

  8. Some people are just asses, nothing you can do about that. It boggles my mind at the number of people who feel they can be jerks to others online, just because they don't agree with you. Good grief..
    I hope you and Mrs are doing well. I'm excited it hit 60 degrees here today!

    1. The Mrs. had to reschedule her bridge because she is sick and running a small fever. The trip to Las Vegas for my procedure took it all out of her. She needs to rest up for a few more days. Yes indeed! good weather is something we can all agree upon. I am ready! thanks for your continued friendship. I appreciate each of my readers for taking time out of their busy lives to visit an old man.

  9. There is only one way to deal with Trolls -- absolutely ignore them as if they don't exist. Don't talk about what they said, what they did -- absolutely zero response. Natha -- nothing but crickets! If they can't get a rise out of you, their whole perverse purpose in their miserable, puss-laden life is thwarted and their panties get all bunched up -- no relief! And that's the perfect way to leave every POS troll that has ever existed. My Dad always said that it takes a bigger man to walk away from a fight. I haven't always remember that perfectly but it definitely seems to remain true.

    1. yes, it turns out our dad's were right! Big surprise there huh! I have made most mistakes more than once because I am stubborn.Thanks for telling me I'm not the only one who ignored that advice! Yeah, trolls. What can I say. I went and trolled them at their blogs and thought I would feel better for fighting back. Nope. I just have to resign myself to the fact that there are people who don't get me and never will. I don't understand it. I am such a charming old bastard! ha ha ha ha ha. I learned my lesson. If you stand to close to the cage they will throw poop on you! ha ha ha ha ha thanks for commenting . It helps....
