I blog as myself. I feel I have to. What is the purpose of writing a blog anonymously if I’m using my blog as proof of what’s happening to me? If I wrote under another name, it might be questionable. I don’t have a picture of myself on my blog, because every time I try downloading a picture to WordPress it never works. It’s not the right size, or is rejected for one reason or another. So I’ve given up having my picture on my blog. But my real name is on my page for everyone to see. So is my email address.
I read a lot of the comments of the bloggers who are writing anonymously. I can’t believe that we’re living in the U.S.A. It seems bloggers are afraid to use their names. They don’t want to lose their jobs because of the opinions they express; because of family and what it might think; afraid to express an opinion because someone might not like it. There is so much fear in the U.S. today that it’s amazing. What happened to expressing one’s opinion and ignoring what someone might think? We’re in worse shape re freedom of speech than I though. What happened to the U.S. I grew up in? Where expressing one’s opinion was encouraged? Now, you can’t say this, you can’t say that because some group might be offended, or some person might be offended. Damn to that! I’ll express my opinion and if someone doesn’t like it, don’t read it! I’ve got nothing to lose. I’m already considered a risk to the U.S, so what am I losing by expressing my opinion? Nothing. I will continue to express my views on my blog without fear. I don’t want to live in fear. It’s not in my genes.
And, people out there, get some balls! Our freedoms are slowly being eroded and none of you is helping by being so afraid.
