1. I feel your pain. It makes me crazy when someone says "I don't Do politics"
Or has no interest in even being remotely educated or engaged. Makes me crazy when they say "you are so political- I don't follow those things" or when people give me that "there she goes again" look. Or when I bring up things that I find terrifying- like electronic voting machine rigging or voter suppression or how ACA really is a big fucking deal or vaginal ultrasounds or whatever it is at that moment that is making me crazy- and I get that condescending attitude or one of those glances about being nuts. It's like there's a complete disconnect with most people- or at least many (but I think it's more like most, sadly) between how the decisions made by our government actually impact our lives. People don't think the Supreme Court has anything to do with us- many people actually I know this because I ask them.
So, I'm with you - and I too take these things VERY seriously. And possibly to the point of being too far but I cannot help it. I care too much. These things matter- big time. No apologies.
