It’s funny how hard I try not post anything on Facebook that might be mean spirited. I do, in fact, try to post things that are truthful and funny about politics and the human condition. I take great pains not to offend and yet people still want to be offended. I think we take ourselves too seriously and when someone points out a logical flaw in their reasoning, they choose to take the easy road and unfriend. I don't mind the casual Facebook friend doing this. However, the real life friends from years past really discourage me. In that, rather than confront the issue, they just silently fly away thinking that they do not need to be bothered by the likes of some conservative nut job. I want to understand how my long time friends are offended, but they would rather pretend people like me don’t exist.
