I was very surprised and upset to see what I think is a racist remark on my post about insurance and taxes. First of all, I made the post to give everyone a heads up that the penalty was being taken from their refunds. Nothing more, nothing less. Some choose to cause an uproar and make it something is was not meant to be. Second, I am NOT racist. I have a niece who is married to a black man who is a very valued member of our family and they have 2 beautiful children. So to have an anonymous person post something like that is very upsetting to me. Coward posted anonymous, says a lot about the character. We are here to help each other. Not to tear someone down. I don't and won't participate in political, religious, or racist discussions. Period

I'm also sorry. This isn't the place for stuff like that. I didn't see it and don't want to, or I may be joining you for that cigarette. I think instead I will buy a new pair of shoes. For the cause of course! And yes jeans are a nice touch, can be very healing.

There is one in every bunch. You did nothing wrong (I didn't even see the post you mentioned) and I'm glad you reported it. This is a place for support, not a place to push someone's political agenda. If we are affected by something and look for support or understanding, we have every right to voice our concerns . . . not bash, as Anonymous did.

Hi. BreC
I'm so sorry this happened to you. There has to be one in the bunch
that ruins it for everyone. I missed it though, when I started to read
and realized this was politically motivated.I just shut down and went
on to another discussion. I try hard not to get involved in politics.
Actually I am glad I missed it. In your defense I may have gotten into trouble here on DC. That is the last thing I would have wanoted. You did the right thing by turning anonymous in. Try not to let it bother
you further. Your very gentle and soft hearted. Easy to hurt, I see that in what you write. Remember we support you here. Hugs, VL

Well I'm better now. Funny how going out and spending $198.00 on groceries and needed items plus a new pair of jeans can change ones disposition. Maybe I read it wrong but that doesn't change my views on the subject.

I missed the racist remark as well…and am kind of glad I figures it was posted under anonymous…I am a very tolerant person…but there are few things I don't tolerate for even a minute..abuse…especially against children and the elderly…and racism are at the top of the list

I missed the racist comment too (thankfully).
It was not you that turned the conversation political

I didn't see an offensive post. The only anonymous post I saw was for Niger Innis, who is a Tea Party Executive Director. The suggestion in that post was to contact your congressmen to get the law changed. So it must have been removed already. Flagging and reporting works!

Family isn't always blood. It's the people in your life who want you in theirs,
the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything
to see you smile & who Love You no matter what.

I get this all the time on Facebook. And they are not anonymous…ha ha Friends incorrectly accuse me of all sorts of things. Some "un-friend" me. That's ok. But this diabetic forum is no place to accuse anyone of such, nor a place to get political. I'm a health insurance agent, serving the masses, and I promise you that it is more difficult, on everybody, now, than it used to be. A drug is no longer covered. A doctor has left the practice. They can't find an application. It will all get better. It has to.

Flagging was the right thing to do. I am sure it will be taken care of if need be. I am sorry that happened.

I got so mad that I was shaking. Smoked a cigarette for the first time in months. You find stupid in ever group but hopefully I put an end to it before it got too far.
