    A Differnce of Opinion Doesn't Hurt As Long As Expressed Correctly.

    My partner and I raised eight girls to adulthood. Eight distinct personalities.We love them all. However not everyone is going to get along. We told our children it is all right to disagree as long as it is politely done and what you say does not hurt another's feelings...

    In Fact,

    I love debates and discussions on ideas, as well as beliefs. I love the way these sorts of conversations feed my thoughts and understanding. It is through discussions that I often make my way through my muddled thoughts. Disagreements and conversations that I have with friends...

    You Shouldn't Agree All the Time...

    That's called being a sycophant and I dislike them. If you think I suck, tell me...show me your side of things. I like to learn. But...I don't have to agree with you either. *grin*

    Never, Not My Style

    I never write anything expecting total agreement. If we were in total agreement just think what a dull world this would be. I write and if someone agrees, that great. If they don't it's okay. I would hope we could discuss it fully and rationally as adults. Not throw tantrums of...

    That's Ridiculous!

    Part of the great diversity that is life is the freedom to have your own opinion, even if that opinion is never completely voiced. Even if you can only secretly disagree because you are not in a position to voice an opinion, they can't take that from you.

    Born This Way

    People are born to disagree. My YES may not be a YES for you. We may see the world in a different perspective. Just like the colors of the rainbow. Different hues, different choices.

    It takes all kinds

    People are all different, and have different viewpoints. The most interesting and educational conversations to me are those that express different opinions and view points, not in an insulting or degrading manner, but in an objective way that gets people to think and expand their...

    I Can Voice My Views, and You May Do So Too

    I've been a dissenting voice now and then.  Not to attack, berate, or belittle anyone else's view.  I simply saw things differently.  I respect people who do so with me, as well.  When I post something here, I'm a guy with an opinion, not the be-all and end-all of what is...

    Everyone Has a Free Choice

     If we all thought and acted the same we'd all be redundant.  Difference is exciting just as long as you don't carry a chain saw!

    But I Oppose Invading Groups to Rant and Scold and Disagree.

    I don't expect the world to agree with my views... but there are groups in which people have found those that DO agree with them, and for the most part they should be left alone, and not stalked by ney sayers. Sometime if one disagrees the thing to do is keep your opinions to...
