Letter: Thankful for freedom to speak one's mind

To the editor:

Have you ever been sopowhacked? Social political bullied/censored on one of the popular Internet social websites?

A sopowag is a person or entity of influence, real or perceived, who believes their views are better than another person’s. In the case of the social media — the ones in control may quash the opinions counter to their own.

For what was I sopowhacked?

For something I posted Nov. 5, 2012, shortly after 12:43 p.m. It disappeared shortly thereafter.

It said: “Lincoln vs. Obama. Lincoln’s words in 1863 in Pennsylvania: “... So that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.

“Obama and our federal government from 2009 to 2012 in action: So that government by the bureaucracy, for the bureaucracy, and of the bureaucracy will continue to rob our children and grandchildren of their inheritance and future well-being.”

I am thankful to live in a place where I can still express my thoughts without undue censorship. Thanks to Tribtown.com and its owners. This Presidents Day, I am thankful for the U.S. presidents who serve all we the people.
