Nothing brings out in the ignorance in people like MLK day

ugh, my FB feed is horrible today.

is yours?

white people complaining that we dont have a white history month, while in the same breath claiming "it's not about color!" and the thread has somehow turned into how obama is a muslim and all muslims are terrorists.

  • Wow, I have had that at all today. That is sad. BUT, I always counter it with the months and days we DO have. There is: German American month, Italian American month, Polish American week (etc.) That usually shuts them up.

  • LOL I haven't seen one of those posts/threads!


    My peeps and I are bitching about how much is being spent on the inauguration... if we seriously took a look at how much money our government wasted we'd fix a lot of out problems!! UGH!!!

  • I actually haven't seen much of that on my FB today. Which is good because I am way too tired to be nice about it.

  • Mine is filled with Birthday posts (apparently this is a very popular day to be born or give birth) and the game with the Ravens and.........whoever...last night.

  • Apparently my friends are all otherwise occupied. I haven't had more than 3 new posts this morning ... grant it, I do have it set up so that I really only see a couple of friends' posts. SO I guess if I went and looked through everyone else's stuff, I might find something. But that sounds like a lot of work for very little in return.

  • Nope. Mine is pretty non-political.

  • LOL! We have a man up in a tree in the City Square trying to make a" political statement". Cops are there trying to talk him down.
    We are assuming at this point he's on bath salts.

  • No. A lot of "proud to be American" crap because of Obama. I don't dislike Obama, I voted for him, but really? Had a guy posted about the moment he spent with his son in front of the TV with tears in their eyes (his son is 5) watching the inauguration. Anyways......

  • Nothing like that on my FB wall, but I did find one amazing announcement. A friend/couple who've been having a hard time getting pregnant (and keeping it...lots of miscarriages) just announced she's pregnant with boy/girl twins!
