After I wrote the following from Message 1288, David commented something I expressed to my family that would happen. How predictable liberals are!!!

Judith, I will not be surprised if your message is ignored by those with which you are trying to communicate. It does not fit the image of this problem that they have fixed in their hearts, emotions and minds. I feel your sense of being violated in a way much more significant than a stupid childhood recollection. But we all have our priorities!
In the next message Joan wrote and I do believe it was in response to David's message and my message.

Bad things have happened to all of us. I would much rather share and enjoy the good memories. Thanks Peter for sharing your story. It was great fun to read it.
Joan that was sad because that is a bad thing that is happening to you. You are doing exactly what so many Germans did and said prior to the Holocaust. Do you recall the Holocaust in Germany? 6 million Jews, and millions of Christians, gays, handicapped, mentally ill and mentally retarded were brutally starved to death, raped, tortured and gassed to their death. I am telling you this because perhaps you don't know that the people ignored and made ridiculous comments such as you did. Consequently more and more people suffered physically and mentally and died. Those who survived suffered horrendous losses and were debillitated. This is why the Nazis were able to achieve the horrendous results that they did. I've known and met several survivors of the Holocaust, have seen their numbers tatooed on their arms and have heard their tragic stories. If you research further, you will learn that people such as you put a deaf ear to what was happening. They spoke ridiculous comments such as you did.
Oh so now I am hearing from the liberals, "that will never happen in the United States." For your information, it is happening all over the world and look what is happening the the US now. You might wish to research this and inform yourselves.
What happened to me is not at all an isolated experience. In fact it is happening all the time all over our country.
The difference between most liberals (not all) and most conservatives (not all) is that a conservative would usually not ignore such statements as I wrote. Conservatives for the most part would say such things as "gee. I never thought of that. You have given me something to think about." or "Gee I was wrong. Thanks for setting me right." Here is what I wrote.

Two years ago I was lying in bed when my husband was out. Someone who did not belong in our home walked past our bedroom, clearly one of the illegals who sneak into Texas from Mexico. So friends I did it all wrong. I should have gone straight to him and with great concern ask him if he was hungry and prepared him a nice hot meal. Definitely I should have inquired if he was well and offered medical care. Maybe I should have bought him some clothing and let him spend the night in our guest room. I should have paid for schooling as well to teach him English. To top my rudeness off, I did call the police. How inhospitable! I confess, I screwed up. “I am my brother's keeper. “
He got our credit card that was left on our table and so he did get some spending money. I did that one right. I bought him dinner at a Mexican restaurant, bought him gas for his car and had it repaired at a shop as he traveled to Fort Worth. Oh yes, I did not leave out entertainment as he was able to get some CDs that were in Spanish.
Oh did I hear someone say, “don't be sarcastic. That is not the same thing. He broke into your home! That's different. Besides the credit card company paid as it was stolen and reported within 24 hours.” Well not exactly, you and I pay for this in more than one way.
So you said this is different. Is it? Friends, he broke into our country and we pay for all of the above, not to mention putting ourselves into harm's way. Did you know that?
