James and Rei's Rant Party v. No Advice Allowed
No advice, no tips, no tricks, no techniques...just rants.
You don't have to listen if you don't want. You don't have to see the other point of view. The beauty in this party is that we can just *be* rants without feeling the need to fix them.
If you want to join in, feel free, but keep yer advice for other threads.
This is from a discussion on politics I had with my parents (rightwing conservatives) the other night. They kept talking about how bad Obama is doing as a president, about how he's taking our country down the tubes, and that we need to vote him out as soon as possible.
And then they said something about how he's a Muslim. And I rolled my eyes and told them that they need to stop getting their information from email forwards. That if you go to Snopes, that you can see that most of these things are proven false. I then ranted about how I saw somebody post a picture of Obama on facebook of him not saluting the flag and how it was debunked because the reason he wasn't saluting had nothing to do with the Veterans (which is what the picture was supposed to show), but because they were playing "Hail to the Chief" and that THEY were saluting HIM (Obama).
Which brings me to my rant...don't you just HATE email forwards and the amount of ignorance that gets passed around on a daily basis? And people get so incited by it without even bothering to check the validity of the claim! It's like, we'll believe ANYTHING so long as it supports our own beliefs and views.
