- Politics and Social Issues
It's official, people are crazy............just in case you had any doubts.
I normally don't like to talk politics with people (I talk about them with my cats), mainly because they're nuts, both politics and the people talking about them. I always tell people I'm a Republicrat, I just vote for the better man (or woman) regardless of what robot leader they serve. Also, when I'm asked my race I always check "other" and write in European American.
Case in point, today I overheard something pretty amusing, this little old white lady who was Republican and I know this because she made a point of telling everybody over and over again, was speaking her mind about the president. She was talking about Obama and her fears about him getting reelected, in a nutshell the world would end if that were to happen. She was worried that he may get reelected, not based on his merits, but because all the black people would vote for him just because he's black.
I took a moment to digest the crap she was spewing and thought to myself, don't the majority of Republicans just vote for candidates because they're Republicans....for the most part anyway. Isn't this kind of like the pot calling the kettle black....pardon the pun. Now I would have loved to tell this lady how I felt, but I was kind of in enemy territory.....a Walmart in Florida is not really a good place to have an opinion other than that of Rush Limbaugh's if you catch my drift. Does anyone hear any banjos or is it just me!?
Now I don't care what your political alliance is, I don't care if you like Obama or not, but just please try not to sound like an ignorant backwoods hillbilly when you're spreading all your nonsense all over the place.
Thanks for taking the time to read my rant, have a great day.
This has been a Mele minute.
