It’s been a few months since I’ve vented to you all about one of my pet peeves.
This one has been really bothering me for a while, but with the presidential election looming, the number of times per day that this wrong is being perpetrated upon me is really going into hyperdrive……
Why, for the love of all things Holy, do people feel the need to continually post political rants on their Facebook statuses?
I mean, C’mon guys….. The only reasons I log on to Facebook are to read about how proud you are that your son just won the Junior-Lumberjack competition, or to catch up with the latest 200 photos of your new fern. I also enjoy checking up on what level you have achieved growing turnips in Farmville.
Also, it’s nice to occasionally check out all the girls that turned me down in high school so I can see how fat and ugly they’ve become…..
You know….. FUN stuff.
But when I log in to Facebook lately, I am fucking ASSAULTED with post after post of Democrat or Republican bashing. Enough is enough, people! I understand that your every waking moment is either consumed by the fact that Obama is a Muslim terrorist who wants to institute public Death Panels, or that Romney is nothing more than Boss Hogg without the cool white suit, but I really don’t give a shit what you think.
I have my OWN political views, thank you very much. And you all know what they are. Wait, you DON’T know what my views on politics are? Oh, that’s right… of COURSE you don’t know what they are. Wanna know why? It’s because I KEEP MY FUCKING OPINIONS TO MYSELF unless someone asks me for them. And even then, I’m not a complete asshat about it.
I have my thoughts on the state of our country…. You probably do, too. And hey…. Our opinions might be different. But to constantly spew all this divisive horseshit all over the interwebs at every opportunity is really fucking tiring.
And what really irritates me is the knowledge that, for the next 2 months, it’s just gonna get worse.
C’mon, people… don’t you all have virtual radishes that need fertilizing, or something? Isn’t there a Bejeweled board that needs your attention?
My Goodness, no one has POKED me in months now……………….
Also, no one has brought up my profile on Facebook and clicked the “Poke” button for me, either….
