Banned, Closed Up, No No, Off Limits, Taboo, Verboten.

Would you believe those words apparently a being applied to my blog?

I learned today, in a round-about manner, that a certain place in a small area nearby to me, has apparently placed my blog as being "off limits."

I know from time to time I do rant here. Yeah, every now and again, I may let fly with a few off-color words but I don't think I've used any vocabulary -in print - that is really foul, vulgar, nasty, dirty words, have I? I know I've never advocated either hard or softcore porn either. I'm against child abuse too. (Though my kids like to tell different stories from that one now and again -I guess "abuse" is in the eye of the recipient at times, isn't it?)

Apparently, I made some posts that some powers that be in a certain organization have taken offense to and as a result, they have taken steps to see that my blog is not accessible.

When my daughter got home from work tonight and I told her this latest bit of news, she got a really mischievious grin on her face and asked me if I had already blogged about this. No, I hadn't done that, not then anyway.

But I am now. I'm just not identifying any thing relating to this little deal.

Why? Because, quite frankly, I think it is quite humorous that this place would deem my blog as apparently having "dangerous reading material" in it and feel the need to stop those using their computers from reading it.

Sometimes, you really do just have to sit back, take a bit of a chill pill and laugh.

If this is all some people have to do is ban others from reading my blog, someone is being grossly overpaid, even if they are only earning minimum wage.

And now - for the Bushism for Saturday and Sunday, May 19/20, 2007:

"We thought we were protected forever from trade policy or terrorist attacks because oceans protected us." - Speech to business leaers at APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) Summit; Santiago, Chile; November 20, 2004.

And, I thought we also had "freedom of speech and of the press too. Imagine that?

WHAT??! Insane, I tell you! I certainly haven't seen one single thing on this blog that could be called "dangerous". Incredible! Carry on, Jeni...

Jeni, this is GREAT news. The best way to get your blog read is to get banned. Just make sure that all the kids know that you have been banned. You radical (*^&*& disturbing old hippie, you.

I wish I could get banned!

Dang Jeni, you wild-eyed subversive, you! Is it because of your Bushisms?
