I'm sick as hell. Coughing to the point of almost vomiting, and nose bleeds. I was so proud for not being sick in a long time, but the flu/cold bug has finally done me in!
I just want to share what prompted me to start this blog.
It actually began with the Internet surfing for information on the Muhammad Drawings by the Danish Newspaper (Jyllands-Posten). I came across a very interesting blog called "The Shadow of the Olive Tree". It was loaded with information on the drawings and had created quite a stir with the readers. It had many, many comments from all over the world.
Well......me.....being the Good ole American Redneck that I am, decided to put my short but comic jabs into the Muslim dilemma. I don't have the intellect to hang with most of the writers on that subject.
There were very good arguments for both sides, but I liked a fellow's by the name of Mark the best. He basically said "If you can't laugh at yourself.......you will become the laughing stock of everyone". I say a big hell yea to that....I'm my own laughing stock sometimes. We all do stupid stuff, and we always will. We just have to get over it.
I came across another comment of interest which I later found out was by a young lady from Karachi Pakistan.I studied her writings before I looked at her profile and was shocked to find such wisdom ,along with some innocence coming from a 20 year old child. I wanted to post a comment on her blog, but soon found out I had to become a member before this would happen.
So.....that is how this blog "Uncivil" got started.
My friends know how I got the name "Uncivil". But I will share it with you anyway. My ex got a personalized license plate for her car that read "Imcivil" because she is a Civil Engineer and she has an outgoing personality to match the civil part of one's personality.
So naturally I had to have one that read "Uncivil" to be the opposite of her and match my sometimes uncivil personality. But I'm an old softy at heart. So don't take it the wrong way.
I'll be back.........Jimmyhad
PS..........Just a spoof on Jimmy's inner struggles! LOL!
