That is, when someone on my facebook feed whines about Obama’s economic record, but doesn’t actually make a note of why they dislike it, I ask for reasons.
And, most folks don’t seem to be aware that there are legitimate reasons to dislike Obama’s economic policy (such as the continuing irrelevance of the middle class to corporate profits) yet these people have no idea what they are.
They just repeat slogans, and it makes me sad.
That’s on top of blocking additional embassy security funding requests by Secretary Clinton, cutting funding for embassy security that was already in place, and ignoring all of the lies and crimes committed by the Bush Administration with regards to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Including but not limited to exposing CIA agents, torture, renditions, and lying about the existence of WMD’s.)
And, to make things even worse in my eyes, these idiotic Congressional Republicans held yet another pointless symbolic vote to repeal HCR today. (That makes, what, fifty? How many wasted hours does that make?)
It’s amazing to me that folks can even turn appreciative messages for Mothers Day into some kind of social justice bullshit catfight on this fucking website. If you can’t abide someone saying something nice about their mother, on this day of all days, log the fuck off of Tumblr and come back tomorrow.
Are there not enough legitimate issues in this world to occupy you selfish pricks?
I think many of the things you’ve said are wrong, but seeing as how you’ve made it abundantly clear how little you care, I’m not going to waste your time or mine by pursuing any further discussion on those points. I do, however, think it’s important to note that there are ways to demonstrate how much you love your wife and children other than discarding or undervaluing friendships with other people who love you.
I will also remind you that I called you the week after our fight and apologized… to your voicemail. I don’t know if you screened my call or not, but even if you didn’t, you decided to ignore it. It makes me hopeful to see that on some level you feel remorse for the way you treated me, even if it’s about fourteen months late.
I do forgive you, and I forgave you a long time ago.
I love you and your family, and I hope you’ll be happier in your new home.
I really do hate how emotional I get about these things, especially when it’s someone who literally doesn’t give a damn about me in the first place.
Does anyone out there have an e-hug to spare?
