Here’s the skinny – new segment. No rules. Please interact. Best response will receive recognition (when we’re famous and rich we’ll send you a free t-shirt). Replies can be reading/writing related, word related, world related, personal, or just a healthy quasi-cathartic, quasi-passive-aggressive venting.
This has been bugging me for a while. A long while. If your political or religious beliefs can fit on a meme or ecard with a poorly written analogy, keep them to yourself. Clearly you need to think a little more deeply. If you think an offensive statement of your personal opinions will sway anyone else’s mind, it won’t. If you think it will annoy people, it will.
I remember being taught it was rude to discuss income, religion, or politics in mixed company. Your 200 (+/-) Facebook “friends” and, depending on your security settings, the friends of anyone who comments or Likes your status, plus, most likely, the NSA, make up the epitome of “mixed company”.
I never thought I’d long for the day when my TL was flooded with posts about your kids learning to crap in the toilet.
