"Sometimes I feel like a fire hydrant looking at a pack of dogs."
I'm feeling like a fire hydrant this political season and I have yet to figure out how to avoid the pack of dogs. People have gone nuts.
I feel like I should make some effort to be a voice of sanity, but how? Currently I have unfollowed almost all our Texas family on Facebook. That's the pits. It's either that or put up with the unimaginable awful things they post.
Most of them are what I've always referred to as Texas Rednecks. They liked that term. Until now it was a term we used when we were teasing, a term used with affection, at least in our family. The Tea Party people have ruined that, now I think of mean spirited, radicalized people, when I hear that term.
I'm reluctant to post an opinion on Facebook for fear I'll be peed on by my radicalized family. How did this happen?
Are you having any problems like this? Do you have any ideas for how we can bring this country back to some sense of sanity?
