It’s Your Choice To Unfollow T.S.O.T.S.B.


American ….

The Sting Of The Scorpion Blog (T.S.O.T.S.B.)

Let’s talk about numbers in the last 14 hours since I posted “If This Flag Offends You……” last night before I headed to bed. As I laid in bed last night I knew there would be a handful of my regular America haters emailing me. At the time I’m writing this post I would have to gage by the 307 emails specifically cursing me for my words, the 109 people who unfollowed this blog, the 36 people who unfollowed me on Google+, the 56 people who unfollowed me on Facebook, and the 11 people who unfollowed me on Twitter, that my words rubbed some people the wrong way. So be it, I will not apologize for my opinion and if people leave, so be it. I will not apologize for being an American, nor will I apologize for for observing the complete dismantling if America. I have held…

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. I am sorry Horty, you are reblogging someone who has said the following, ” Think on that one for just a bit. I’m watching America commit collective suicide by twice electing a clearly unqualified, foreign born, anti-American joke to the highest office in the land.”

    And the above is only the tip of the iceberg of what this intolerant, bigot has said. Tell me again why you follow him, reblog him and pollute your normally sane space with him?

    Each and every single time I see his name on your space I cringe.

    • Valentine … thanks for advising me. This I didn’t know.
      We have gotten to interact. I know that his views are different from mine ….
      He’s a vet and we connected there. We have talked about the VA system and his medical conditions as well as his time in the military.

      I know his views are different from mine but I didn’t know about this topic ….. he’s never mentioned it to me. On other topics, we have agreed to disagree.

      I don’t know what to say. Again … thank you! I really appreciate and value your input.

      • It was in the post he is defending, I have read others of his and finally decided I would simply ignore it when you reblog him. I have many friends who I disagree with politically and otherwise. It is not my place to tell you who to interact with, sometimes though people cross the line. Please don’t allow my outrage affect your interactions with people you have developed relationships with.

        I am sorry, I was out of line.

    • Been thinking ….. Like I said, we connected through FB. We’ve had long conversations about his Air Force service, his service connected conditions, his disabilities claims …. things that I knew about & felt a need to point him in the right direction.
      I know some his posts are racy meaning more than risqué ….. yet I didn’t know this part. Again TY for heads up.

      • No, no …. Val. There was no stepping over the line, as far as I am concerned. I value your opinion & input very much. I value our friendship. I respect you bc we seem to resonate along the same lines. Things are seen better from the outside looking in.
        And maybe this tells me you value what I do as well as our connection. Am I right? I hope …

  2. Horty, I have many friends and family for that matter who I fundamentally disagree with on several issues. Like you, I choose to agree to disagree with them. There is nothing wrong with developing relationships with people who are on the other side of the aisle. Far be it from me to censor you or what you put on your blog. However, if you are trying for one tone one standard, I felt it was necessary to point out to you the disconnect between his voice and yours; it sends a message. I didn’t want you to lose followers along with him.

    Racy? Hell, so am I at times. That isn’t the issue, is it.

    I do value your voice and your message along with your friendship. If I didn’t I wouldn’t have said anything.

    • I’m at the PC now. Before I’d been on cell. I went back to the original post …. and read what you quoted. I hadn’t seen that. I know I have no place for that ….

      Like I said, I value our friendship and your input. I didn’t view your comments as censorship. I welcome them …. and again, I thank you for pointing things to me that I obviously missed. I really do …. Your pointing this out to me gives me a clear idea which I didn’t have. Thanks again!
