Online Etiquette For Masons; With Supporting Quotes From Albert Pike. |

I am often puzzled by the Mason who travels the internet looking for weaker prey, or who is looking to pick an online fight with another Mason. Did he (or she) not learn anything from his Masonic lessons?

Brian Schwartz, who is the former Executive Officer of the City of Toledo having served as a spokesman for former Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner and is the former Director of Public Affairs for the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority, professes to be a Communications Specialist.

Here take a look at a copy and paste of what Brian Schwartz wrote on the Facebook wall of Brian Maxson on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 9:28 am:

Brian Schwartz: “Lighten the fuck up, Roland. Brian and I were just having a little fun. Pull the fucking stick out of your ass.”

Regarding Troy Neff of Toledo, Ohio

I am going to take the easy way in this Roland’s Rambling blog entry. I am just going to copy and paste a Facebook exchange that took place with Troy Neff, former radio personality in Toledo, Ohio.

That Facebook exchange is as follows:

Roland Louis Hansen shared a group.
March 17 at 11:19am

There is a special Facebook group for people who like to interact with me on a more personal, cordial, and friendly basis here on Facebook.

The name of group is Roland Hansen’s Crew.

Because it is a Closed Facebook Group, any person who is already a Facebook “friend” of mine can see the members list.

HOWEVER, ONLY the people who have voluntarily joined and have actually become MEMBERS CAN SEE WHAT IS POSTED THERE, no one else can see those postings.

Many in this extraspecial group have worked with me either career-wise or in some volunteer organization. Some of The Crew are members of my family, some are former school chums, and some are from the neighborhood where I grew up.

And, there are the folks who have come across me along the path of life and decided that they also wanted to become a member of Roland Hansen’s Crew.

I do not automatically add people to the group. However, I do approve the requests of friends who have asked to join my very special Facebook group for my very special friends.

In order to join the group, you need to click onto the “+ Join Group” icon that is contained in the header for Roland Hansen’s Crew. Once I receive notice that someone has made a request to join, then I need to approve the request before you can actually become an active member of Roland Hansen’s Crew This is a safeguard for you and me.

Thanks and I hope to see you on the flip side. Love and Peace to all.

Troy Neff 
Troy Neff: Your 1st Amendment right is extended to you on your page. Not mine. Snopes? Seriously gtfo here with that dumb shit. It’s called personal responsibility. But I’d guess a hypocrite would forget about Obama saying to bring a gun if they have a knife.

The left has been ridiculously violent. That’s ok. We’re over it.

You’re special for sure.

Roland Louis Hansen
Roland Louis Hansen: Government 101 Lesson, Troy Neff. First Amendment only applies to the national government.

p.s. My mother always said, “Two wrongs do not make a right.”
It appears to me, Troy, that you fail to practice what you preach. Is it really necessary for you to use potty mouth language to make your point?

Troy Neff

Troy Neff: Yes.

Roland Louis Hansen
Roland Louis Hansen: And so says “good Christian” Troy Neff who has just unfriended me. WWJS
Image may contain: one or more people and text

Troy Neff

Troy Neff: Yes, I’m a Christian that says fuck. 😎

Troy Neff

Troy Neff: Jesus wasn’t a liberal. Smh. Nice try though.

Troy Neff

Troy Neff: Having compassion is using your money and time to help others. It’s not having the government taking from some to give to others.Maybe you should get your money back for those degrees.

Roland Louis Hansen

Roland Louis Hansen: Your use of words and foul mouth speaks volumes of your character, Troy Neff. Not a very good role model for the children who may see and read this public post. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Troy Neff

Troy Neff: My work speaks for itself. I’ll put it up against yours any day.

Roland Louis Hansen
Roland Louis Hansen: Why are you being so abrasive and aggressive, Troy Neff?
A cyberbully is just as bad as a real life bully.

Troy Neff
Troy Neff: Roland, because I didn’t stand for your shit? Uh huh.

You started it by condoning real violence. Not words. Real violence. Tsk tsk tsk.

We can be done or continue. Your choice.

Roland Louis Hansen
Roland Louis Hansen: I have never condoned violence, Troy Neff.

You posted a status update in which you wrote “Here’s more of your peaceful protest. And this ain’t California.” and attached a link to a Fox News Article entitled, “Student with ‘Trump’ flag assaulted by mob during National School Walkout.”

I responded as a reply to your posting on your Facebook wall, Troy Neff, by posting two links without comment. One link was a fact check by Snopes in the article entitled “Did Donald Trump Encourage Violence at His Rallies?” The other was a link to an article from Mashable entitled, “All the times Trump has called for violence at his rallies.”

My point was that Twitler Donald J Trump advocates violence. I shall post those same links of mine in this message thread following these comments of mine in order that people may actually see what it was that I posted. You removed those links from your wall, unfriended me, and then came over to my wall to make an unfounded allegation by lying, and you have used foul language. You emulate your god Twitler Trump very well; that is not very Christian of you. At least you did not do so in the name of Jesus. I suspect Jesus is not happy with your words, behavior, and actions.
