Leap year. Time for the claws to come out. It’s only January and already the political rhetoric is in full force. With politics comes religious fervor. Since I don’t subscribe to neither a particular political party nor a religious affiliation, every bit of it makes me cringe. I don’t claim to have all the answers as many people do. I think there are a handful of my friends who share my views on things and those who don’t think I’m a queer heathen socialist. I don’t care. I just don’t support big corporations, organized religion, flag-waving nationalism, religious wars, and hiding behind Christianity to support violence, greed, and suppression of human rights.
Facebook aggravates me because it is platform for peoples’ stupidity. For instance, I read this hogwash recently. Here’s an “original” status update:
I’m sick of games. I’m sick of politics. I’m sick of hypocrites touting religion. I’m sick of repetition and unoriginal thought. I’m sick of seeing abused/neglected animals. I’m sick of people telling me to copy and repost a worn-out status. I figure if anyone really gives a damn what I think or feel about anything, they can read it on my website. Most of the time, FB feels like I’m talking to myself.
