Birth of a notion - My experiment to share my posts from other comment threads.

I have been neglecting this blog for awhile, as Facebook links and discussions have monopolized my time, as well as less frequent visits to the Twitterverse. I've found enough people to argue with and educate on FB and Huffington Post threads, that it's actually been quite time-consuming, but I have an idea. I've been posting rather long, detailed comments to Facebook threads, mostly on the topic of immigration, but also a couple others, and I'm going to try posting a few of these here, along with some replies and comments from people I'm directly responding to or referencing, to provide context. I had done something similar in the past, but as wall posts, especially to share some threads from Huff Po sites. But then they'd get lost down the wall after a few days and I hope this way, I can keep my wit and wisdom more accessible. At least to me. And maybe some of you all will even want to share it around, because so much of the info I discuss, specifically on immigration issue, needs more exposure to refute common myths and misinformation. So, I know some of the links are bound to be repeated, but it still seems like too many people aren't getting the message and are spreading the ignorance around. If anyone is out there, let me know what you think. And for anyone wondering about my husband (hospitalization discussed in older posts), he's doing pretty well and back to work at the farm. But it's an unpredictable condition, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.
