    If my lean is to the right and my convictions proper
    I can say just what I like and no one will cry "stop her!"
    I'll lift my nose and curl my lip and sneer at your convictions
    My words become so holy , my thoughts are an inscription

    But if I stand on my own feet without a credo on my sleeve
    Every word that issues forth will cause someone to grieve
    They will cry foul at every thought that doesnt' match their own
    And they won't stop their noise until they know that I am gone

    Then they can keep on stifling those who dare to disagree
    They'll make sure these folks know that speech is never really free
    And those who fear to speak their minds are watching, this I know
    They'll keep their ideas to themselves, or be the next to go.

    Its not about speaking your mind..its about being rude to people, Hiker. There is a difference.
    I speak my mind ALL the time..but i really try to not be rude and snarky to people also. Think about it..

    Quote:If you say something that people don't like,it's considered rude. If your opinion is different, it's considered rude.

    I refuse to play these stupid games anymore. You guys can have it all your own way.

    You are all right.

    happy?
