Who's judgmental...

Carl Kem’s letter (Dec. 27 edition of The Times-Independent) said my letter was “judgmental garbage.” Yet he says my opinion is “weird and whacked out” because he doesn’t agree.

So who’s judgmental? And I don’t want a sagebrush rebellion, baby. For heaven’s sake, read the letter. You got it exactly opposite of its meaning.

You refer to pinko rags, and say you’re defending my freedom of speech. You only hate a couple of groups (which is fine – they are okay to hate) so you’re “not narrow-minded.” Really?

And how do you know who I know and don’t know? News flash: Assumptions are not facts. Read my letter again, dude. Maybe you’ll be able to understand it once your brain clears. Ha Ha! Just kidding. Can’t you take a joke?
