The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

I Have a Secret Admirer

Blogging, Culture

About twice a month, I get snail mail from people both for and against me.  Every one of them lacks a return address.  For those that over the years have leaked me documents, I can understand the need for anonymity.

 

For those that are just against me, they make me laugh.  Please don’t stop, they mean so much to me.  I know I am doing right when I get them.  I have talked about this with my friend Jay Weber and as he points out, you can tell how effective you are by the letters you get.

 

First, that I have gotten under your skin that you decided to take the time and effort to write, type or doodle something to me and that doesn’t include those that cutout newspaper or magazine articles and print liberal blogs attempting to show me I am wrong!

 

You must be in a mind trap!

 

Second, I love it that many of you want to correct my spelling, grammar, or idioms.  Most of the time while you write or type me your note do the very thing you are pointing out. 

 

How about the word “ain’t”!  Remember in school your teacher teaching you, ain’t isn’t a word so don’t use it!  Ain’t, is a not a Standard English word.  “Ain't is a contraction originally used for "am not", but also used for "is not", "are not", "has/have not", "do not", "does not", and "did not"”

 

Now this example uses a double negative, “You ain’t no alpha-male!” 

 

So, case in point or here is my case and my point, she (based on the big swirly cursive writing) thinks I am an Alpha-male as a double negative is a positive, not just in English, but in Arithmetic (you know one of the 3 r’s).

 

I love these types of love letters the most.  Better than the ones that just say, “ I hope you die soon or move away!”

 

Third is the fact that you took the time to go to the Airport Post Office and purchase a metered stamp so I cannot look at the postmark.

 

I bet this love letter came from South Milwaukee or was it Racine.
