You are stupid. And it makes me want to punch you in the junk.
Whatever you have, or don't have, social networking wise, doesn't really even matter, because your here, on the Internet, and that my friend, makes you susceptible to stupid people.
Yes, stupid people, and the Internet in which they all (myself included!) have a voice. If you have a Facebook, you likely saw the group going around. I won't even bother googling it, so my phrasing might be slightly off, sorry.
"Dear God, this year you took my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson & my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett. God? My favorite president is Obama. I'm just saying."
Do I get the humor? Yeah.
Is it wasted on me? No.
Someone got a funny line in their head & ran with it. I think of hilarious & slightly inappropriate comments all the time. For example, after I wrote about tanning & that it isn't just a myth they use to keep people from tanning, I got hit with the perfect phrase
"Tanning causing Cancer isnt just a myth they use to keep the white man down."
Ha ha.. since typically your pale (white) if your going tanning..get it?
My problem is, it's really fucking rude, and classless. Do I love Obama? I think he's oke-doke.
I think he's better than Bush.
I voted for him.
My kids even have Obama shirts, we call them "Obama bellies" and tickle the boys on Obamas face when they wear then while Mike does this hilarious mock voice of Obama saying "I want a shirt with Andy on it, so I can have an ANDY belly!!!"
However, I'm not an Obama freak, I'm not "OMG he's the best thing since sliced bread!!!"
I think he's our president & I think he's got better ideas & outlooks that relate more to my own, than past presidents.
I get that people don't like him, but I personally, just found that Facebook page classless. I can over look the offensiveness & the difference of opinion, but I get stuck on the fact that this is actually how many people FEEL.
I mean.. REALLY?? Who is YOUR great President that you are holding in such high regard that you want YOUR current president DEAD??
I'm genuinely just curious. I mean, WE voted for him, if you hate him so much, I sure hope your whiney ass was out 12 hours a day working polls, spreading information & doing something to hopefully no tget him elected, not just MAYBE voting, and then spouting off at your pie hole about how awful things are, when you did NOTHING to make a difference.
"What can one person do?" I dunno, a lot more than ZERO persons can do, I'd assume!!
I was born & raised in Kent, Ohio.Today is the 40th anniversary of the Kent State Shootings.
While I do realize everyone is entitled to their own opinion, here is mine & if you don't like it, I not only suggest, but I encourage you to use the little contact button or leave a comment & gracefully discuss with me why you disagree.
I've seen a total of about 5 posts, or thoughts on peoples Facebooks today, about the shooting. From people keeping the memory alive, to sharing articles, to saying these kids got what was coming to them & deserved to be shot.
Yet again, my feelings aren't altered by the difference of opinion, because God knows I wouldn't want to live in a world where everyone thought like me, that would be a REALLY scary twisted place, it's just the lack of respect!
I have yet to write my next installment of how I Met my Husband, because that part of our life was painful & awful, quite frankly, and much of it had to do with a person who is no longer alive. I have no problem expressing my dislike for those who are alive & able to defend themselves, or discuss why they disagree with my opinion, but speaking ill of the dead is just rude!
I mean, Hitler is dead & he was a fucking douche bag. I'm cool with saying that, but to speak SO harshly of people who are dead, who you may or may not know with no intent other than to bash them, to dislike them or to drag them through the mud purely shows a lack of class, to me!
It's one thing to talk about a cracked out celebrity, and comment on their stupidity as they're slapped all over the tabloids, that's gossip, people do it, it will never change, but when people just randomly feel the need to express such distaste for people, with no facts, or thoughts other than the agenda to be rude & hateful, I just don't get it.
Is it that people who feel the need to bash & slander others so visciously have low confidence?
That's what many say.
Is it that they're angry people in their hearts & it's all they know? Maybe.
Or is it just the fact that people are fucking rude?
That's my guess.
