The Kindle just doesn't work right and   I have decided not to feed the bullies and distracters...it's call the ignore feature. They only have power when fed.

I carry a gun not because Im looking for a fight,, but because I’m looking to be left alone......


In my view, bullets are like boobs, they can be too big, but not often.
