First - the crud still hangs on. AND I have found that the greatly promoted Mucinex (or however that stuff is spelled) does nothing for me. In fact, I think it made me worse. Every 4 hours for two days, I religiously swallowed the vile stuff. I never felt any relief, in fact, I felt somewhat worse (from what I could tell!). So yesterday I stopped it. I did feel better. I don't know if this is just part of the crud running its course or I really benefitted from discontinuing the med.
Second - I consider myself a rather open minded person. If I had to be labeled politically, I would honestly say I am an independent. I don't like the concept of political parties.
What brought this up? We have a web service around here called "Next Door." It can serve a good purpose. Ours had sort of degenerated into mostly lost/found dogs and cats. This is rather tiresome, and with my animal rescue mindset, it also distresses me. A lot!
Some yahoo decided he would stir the pot with something he deemed important. He brought up the Primary Election. Now, the voting demographics of our combined neighborhoods is well known. Why he decided to list all the candidates on one questionnaire about who would vote for whom, I cannot understand. But he did. That post has become a cesspool.
Just the other day, someone suggested that we begin the new year with careful thinking about what and how we post. That suggestion has completely been ignored. And so many there are putting things in there (and not about the candidate, but other definitions of ideologies) that are completely incorrect.
This coupled with Facebook has made me want to leave the social media altogether. I want to write "people - say what you want. That is your Constitutional right. But make it factual." That would be directed to one person especially. She and I have had a run-in (at her doing), and I have muted her. But then I get curious and come to the computer to look at what she says. She. Is. An. Idiot. Today she
Sorry for the rant. Sometimes it just feels really good to let it out. I should simply drop that neighborhood "rag sheet." There are sometimes redeeming qualities about it though. I just need to consider my action about it carefully.
