19. Sedition in media...

I'm all for having different points of view. I listen to it all. A good friend/teacher of mine one time told me he reads THREE newspapers in Mexico everyday...one from the right, one from the left, and one from a quasi-neutral position. That way, he can make up his own mind what to believe.

We have lazy, gullible and racist folks in this country that will have none of that "heavy thinking". They like their information in spoon size bites; nice and simple and easy to digest....called "talking points". They don't really care for this scary black man in the White House, and they have been good 'church going people" all their lives. Problem is, most of the churches today are political too. They base it all on "gays, abortion, and taxes". Give us our tax breaks, keep the gays out of the families, and stop killing those damn embryos, I mean "babies".

Now, you add that all together and you come up with "fox-propaganda network"...only too happy to spoon feed their poison to these low-information, lazy but religious fools. My family is full of them. Talked with my older sister tonight, and she had been drinking - she's an alcoholic now - and before she parts with her slurring and blabbering on about other matters, she says she'll sure be glad when that damned Obama is out of the White House. I told her he isn't going to be, and she had better get used to it. She wanted to argue it, and I simply told her I'd bet her $10 he'll be re-elected, and I like my money in $5's. We have a bet. I'll collect her money when she's sober, and I'll get the last word in.

Not sure what's going to happen when this election is over. There are an awful lot of angry and scared people on both sides of the spectrum in this election. I fear someone is going to do something awful..but I sure hope not. But thanks to "fox-propaganda network", I wouldn't be one bit surprised if someone, or several someones, try something. He IS going to win. And it's going to be embarrassing to the reich wingers..and they are NOT going to be happy at all.

Sorry for your bad experience. I think I would have gotten up and left. Shame on them. You didn't push your political views on them..and there is an old family saying, NEVER talk about politics or religion when you get together. Guess it's a hard one to avoid today..but we need to if we expect to keep some old friendships in tact.
