Repealing internet privacy protections passed in the final days of the Obama presidency, congress has allowed internet providers to sell our browsing history to the highest bidder. You are reading page 4 of Has Our Privacy Just Been Sold to the Highest Bidder?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Oh, peeps, if you wear your hearts on your sleeves, you will always find idiots like myself who will tease you. You've got only one life I think, so relax, enjoy, smile, please!! Good tip. Spike Milligan. Read some of his material.

My heart is not on my sleeve. But thanks for the advice. I'll look later. Gotta get to work.

Hi momofm1998.

As others have noted, this side of AN is called the "Blue Side" and was created to let us have a bit more leeway with out subjects and postings. They can have nothing to do with nursing.

There are more conservative posters here (I'm one) but I will say personally that I prefer to not post as much in heated political threads anymore. Not that I don't but . . . I try hard to stay away from them. ;) I'm not completely sure of the stats but it does sometimes feel like we more conservative nurses are outnumbered a bit. However, I've tried to tone down my rhetoric and keep a more open mind about why we disagree and consider some of the left-leaning nurses here as online "friends".

I don't agree that "nursing is still at the bottom of the heap, bullying each other, scrapping with each other, tearing each other down, lateral workplace violence...no reason; just bottom feeding mentality." But that's another thread. :)

Don't see why you should avoid it at all. Your opinion is as valid as anyone's. Have the courage to not let trolls dictate your behaviors or they would have won. That twerking girl had a song about climbing hills, the Disney girl. Good song and message.

I've been here since 2002 . . . I've been in my fair share of political rants. I prefer other subjects for the most part now.

It is the same old, same old in a way . . . kinda boring really.

FWIW-it's often difficult to know when someone is teasing on line,as you can't see expression or hear intonations. Next time give us a little hint, like with a smiley rolling its eyes. :sarcastic:

I did. Spike Milligan! Here's another. Peter Sellers and another, Peter Cook.

There's a reason I want you to look up these fellows. You tube them. The brain is a muscle that needs exercise:confused:
