arlin report thought(s) of the day: opinion vs. fact writing


Everyone (at least many) has/have an opinion. Not everyone has the facts. Many people write an opinion as fact, though they have no evidence or, giving them the benefit of the doubt, much knowledge of being fact. I realize I may not have stated that last sentence well, but I’ll say now that is my opinion. Confused yet?

One of the first blogs I read this morning was a total criticism of our most popular President ever (in my opinion). Criticism is fair, but it should be “fair” and it often is not. That my dear friends is a fact! Don’t believe me, just do a quick blogging post, there are plenty of examples out there. Opinions are written as factual in order to convince and sway the reader to the writers’ way of thinking. We find that even in the MSM today. I find that often irritating, and I either stop where I am……or check to see how much more rubbish I have to the finish, then decide how much more I want to endure.

If you write something, if it’s your opinion says it’s your opinion. We can write criticism on facts, and the reader should be able to tell it is opinion on the facts affect. To merely write things we have no evidence of should not be written as fact. If it is based on rumor, say so.

I often write my opinion, but I say it is my opinion or at least I mean to. Here this gets even better: I try to base my opinion from facts. Maybe I am not often clear either. I find those that hate Donald Trump (many do anyway) can’t say anything that isn’t negative. Some are true, some are not, but they still write them as facts. Steele Dossier comes to mind, you know that document Hillary Clinton paid for so the FISA court (and us) could accept as the truth. NOW THAT IS A FACT!

In my opinion.

  1. I AM IN A MINORITY THAT IS UNSEEN AND NOT EVEN RECONIZED AS A MINORITY, NO NOT AS A WOMAN, BUT HERE I AM. I DO NOT TAKE SIDES ON POLITICAL FRONTS, I MUCH PREFER TO LOOK THROUGH THE EYES AND SOUL OF AN INDIVIDUAL, THAN HIS OR HER LABEL AND WHAT THAT PERSON WANTS ACHEIVED. THEN AGAIN YOU HAVE PEOPLE ON ALL SIDES TELLING ME I MUST PICK A SIDE, NO I AM NOT!!! I SEE THIS HAS MOST TO GARBAGE AND USE LESS BAGGAGE ANYWAY. CAMPAIGNING FOR THE MOST PART IS A FRAUD ANYWAY, AND ANY AMOUNT OF INVESTIGATING IS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. I TELL YOU WHAT, WE HAVE TRUMP WAITING TO START A WAR AFTER THE 2020 ELECTIONS, AND WE HAVE BLOOMBERG WHO IS GOING TO PICK HILLARY HAS HIS RUNNING MATE, AND DID I REMEMBER CORRECTLY THAT TRUMP WAS TO HAVE HER PUT IN JAIL, BY NOW IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. I TELL YOU WHAT—THIS PLACE IS WONDERFUL TO HAVE A PICNIC!!! HA, HA, HA!!!
