What does it mean to be flagged?

In this modern tech world in which we all live, the Internet, Blogging, and all this is a new form of communication, seems to be boundless.
In my Blog, I have tried to address the frustrations of being disabled at a young age (33), experiencing a Housefire, living of Social Security, being critical of the Political Correct age we live in and pretty much said what I Damn thought.
Now, it appears, even though as the help page explains, when someone "flags" you, it is not censorship, just suggests that some of your thoughts may be offensive, etc.
Well, I now feel since the change of the administration in Washington, and the attacks that are taking place against Talk Radio, even PC crowd is going to OBSERVE what bloggers write.
I have tried to tell ny experiences and opinions as truthfully as possible, trying to warn others of the hazards and pitfalls that await the well intended. But, evidently, I have disturbed someone by my candor or voicing of an opinion. I am sure there are other ways of posting Blogs, if you want to go to the trouble. I simply do not have the energy to spare to engage in a fight that is so senseless. I am sure there are much more offensive blogs and other material out here than the opinions and experiences of a 52 year old MS patient living on Social Security.
So there, If you want me to shut up, I will. If you have the willingness to engage me and advise me of my trespasses, Just post.
One other thing, when you are flagged your blog is as easily available, whatever that means.
I did not know if any body was reading it that much anyway. AT least one pinhead is.
Have a Great Day out there in the wasteland, MT

Reclaiming my Gun !

Well, Finally, after over 2 years, I was allowed to "have" my gun back from the Maryville Police Department. As I have told before, it was held after my wife was wrongfully charged with D.U.I. while taking her prescription medication in Maryville. The Officer opened the console and "OH MY GOD, THERE'S A GUN........". He told her he could have shot her between the eyes,
Anyway, we waited a year after the case was dismissed, as not to anger the sleeping dog and have her dragged thru the courts again with a "GRAND JURY INVESTIGATION'.
I went to Maryville Monday and went to Police department. Sugar would not melt in their mouths. Everthing was there, even the "BLACK TALON" bullets, which I thought I would never see again. I think Officer "FIFE" probably did not know what they looked like...
Justice has been served and never forget over $2500 in legal fees.
The next step is her record will be expunged. That would be an additional $450 except for the fact the case was dismissed.
The long lasting effect this will have on Deanna and I is something you cannot put a value on. I urge all who read this, anywhere. Know your law. Depending on the state, if you take Benadryl, that can be a DUI offense, if they can prove it affects the Central Nervous System.
M.S. paitents such as myself, will never pass a field sobriety test, period.
I cannot stress all of this enough. Even the Tennessee Highway Patrol still has T.V. spots, saying Booze it and Lose it. No one has touched on the D.U.I. by medications period.
I was told by some official, don't remember which one, too many, that it was our job to know the law, not there's to tell us, so there you go.
Have a good weekend, be carefull out there...MT
