I hereby declare this journal a No Politics zone.
I cannot get into a political discussion without getting upset. I don't like getting upset, nor do I like having my words misconstrued, misread, dismissed and/or ignored. I belong to a group of moms online and tried to get them to agree to no politics - some dissented. We at least agreed to be nice. I will not allow myself to be drawn into the fray if a fray begins. So far, so good.
However, I belong to another group I will not mention and did get drawn in. You cannot have a conversation with a person when their only answer is "we never should have gone into Iraq in the first place". Okay, if that's your answer to everything, there's not a two sided conversation going on, is there? The bigger problem, it's the mob mentality. Oh, I forgot, the other answer is "she has an infant and her daughter is pregnant". True, I can't help you with that one, but it doesn't address taxes. Let's focus on policy people. All politicians are evil - let's move on and try to sort things out.
Augh. 10 seconds after my declaration and I get embroiled with myself!! That does it. I'm not voting. I'm going to just pop a tent up in Waianae and hide out until it all blows over. Wake me up in time to go Christmas shopping.
(I think I married a wise man, because he refuses to rise to my baits of discussions that can get animated - much to my chagrin)
