Facebook Politics

I won't go into detail about my political leanings. I tend to be more moderate, middle-of-the-road. And, both sides of the aisle drive me crazy at times. But, and you've likely seen it as well, the extremist left and far-right folks are going at it on Facebook this election season and it's getting tiresome. It's amazing how emboldened people get online. These are the folks who cannot even hold eye contact with you, much less carry on a decent conversation. Yet online, they attack. And attack.

Ooooo, your shouty capital letters are scaring me!

Again, I won't share my politics in this forum. That's something I've always held close to the vest. I will say, though, that I've not watched any of the cable news channels this week. And, when I return from my 5k training tonight, I'll likely read a good book after putting the kids to bed. So, that may tell you a little something. ;)

Agreed! I have already tuned out because I can't take it--and it's just getting started. Someone on the JCrew Facebook page said they were going to return their newly-purchased pumps because Michelle Obama wore them during her speech. I mean, really?!?! How dare JCrew sell their shoes to anyone who wants to buy them!!

So agree! I cannot do facebook during election year! People are rude! And what drives me crazy is that I already know their views... they do not need to share and they will not be changing my view!

Thank you for posting this! Considering the vile comments made to moderates, you are brave.
