It seems as though there is a communal numbness. To large degree, my FB news feed is pretty quiet politically. I refrain from wading into
those types of discussions myself. I almost never post anything political and if I do, it's a comment on someone else's post, and I try not to be a pot stirrer. I think everyone has burnout on the whole thing. Try as I might, as soon as I comment, no matter how politely or respectfully, it would end up devolving into blow lines and flame throwing. Who needs it?
The older I get, I find I prefer peace over chaos. I'll leave the chaos to those better suited for it.
See you at the polls.
Remember to love your neighbor as you love yourself, and if you hate yourself then please, just leave your neighbor alone. ~Jon Stewart
Other cultures are not failed attempts at being you.
The fact that you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we've already redefined marriage.
The people spoke. Move on. Get on with it. I want to do other things and not to be ugly. They're going to have to compromise. It's not a dirty word. ~Barbara Bush on Barack Obama's re-election.
