2. I have just witnessed them unfriend people the have known for years.


I won't go into details, but it has to do with the shrugging of one Mr. Atlas.

3. It's like knowing an alcoholic

At some point, you have to let to and let them hit bottom on their own.

6. One is my sister. She will even have to change her answering machine. It went something

like this: "Hi, you have reached the )))))))))'s. We are a Christian family that will be voting the Muslim out of office in November. If you feel the same way, please leave your name and number and we will return your call. Have a Blessed day"

9. Not broken,

and still just as proud as ever, thinking that those of us who voted for Obama are naive and uninformed and that if we all only watched Fox News like they do, we would not make such stupid decisions and that when the economy crashes they will be able to say "we told you so."

10. My friend said she and her husband were

more angry and upset by this presidential election than any other. Her husband is just a typical Republican man, but she is turning into a social Darwinist. Honestly, I'm beginning to wonder if she has spent her last ounce of the milk if human kindness.

She has chosen to believe all of that nasty movie crap about Obama being a commie Muslim. She thinks he's out to destroy America.

Our friendship of many decades is strained to the max by her paranoia and expectation that Obama will cause everything to fall apart in our economy and we'll all be at each other's throats.

11. one that rrally surprised me. i have a new

acquaintance, on the way to being a friend, with whom I see eye to eye about a lot of things. But she told me yesterday she was just sick about it. Heartsick actually, she said. There was no partisan, drinking the koolaid partisan crap, just a deep sadness that emanated from her. I was so surprised by this, I didn't engage her further, as we had other business to talk about. But I keep thinking about her, and really wonder why. She is intelligent, open minded..I'm sad for her.

15. Nope. Everybody I know & work with are ecstatic. The faculty hopes they'll

re-visit Single Payer. My dept. is Allied Health Sciences so they know what's what. I am lucky.

16. Finally got to talk to my mother

She mentions how things are going to be so tough this next year.
Financial Companies are taking off products because the administration is oppressive to business.
Companies like ING and stuff.

I didn't really want to reply, I just let her say whatever she wanted.

Companies will change their products and put out new ones to fit the rule changes.
That is cyclical and will happen often, even in the course of a single year, and multiple times during a term in a Presidency.

It is during the down times, that I tend to invest in stocks, going for limited risk companies that would most likely never disappear.

Just being melodramatic because she didn't get what she wanted.

21. The ones I know are shellshocked

They really thought Romney was going to win big. That's what happens when you listen to right wing talk radio and Faux News all day.
