I spend a lot of time on Facebook. Probably too much time.

I like keeping in touch with friends from all over the world and I like to keep it fun.

I had a rule when I joined FB that I would stay away from politics, religion or any other hot topic.

This is not an easy rule to follow, because of things like the attacks on women, Planned Parenthood, #BlackLivesMatter, as well as, asshats like Trump, and Harper.

I find that on the inter web, people (even people I think I love) say the darnedest things, and I am left shaking my head in disbelief. I take things too seriously, or too righteously, and I can get too wrapped up in something I can’t change or can’t buy into. Hitting the “like” button, blocking idiots, or biting my tongue only goes so far for me.

I do not want to quit Facebook, but, hear ye, hear ye… I can not get sucked into politics on a social media sight, it makes me nutty. So I am saying… Nope, no, nada, not any more….

Talking politics for me, is right up there with having a hot poker shoved in my eye, or listening to a kid scream on an airplane.

So, this is it. I will state my piece here, and be done with it. (At least I hope this will be it.)

I do not want any more “OMFG  are they insane?” or “What an Asshat.” comments to take up my time. I feel more productive watching Say Yes, to the Dress on TV. I will continue to “like” the photos of the sunsets, family reunions, cats, and personal adventures that friends post, but no more political or religious bullshit for me.

This is where I stand and I doubt I will change my mind by election day.

Even though I do not necessarily believe my vote counts or even that it matters, I vote. I have the right to vote in two countries and while I think both systems are corrupt, deep down inside, I know voting is the right thing to do, so I vote.

In the states, I will vote for the democrat candidate. I don’t care who the nominee is, they will have my vote. I do care that those fucking weirdo asshat republicans don’t get any where close to more power than they already have.

I know for the most part, psychopaths run the world, but what is so wrong with having a sane person in charge?*

In Canada, I will vote to get Harper out. * See the sentence above.

Okay – done and done. (I hope.)

    I’m with Jenny. You are fabulous. I have always loved how you stand strongly for what is right for you. And how you are able to express yourself so clearly.

    Love you.
