well, that's a first
Also? I'm thinking Facebook isn't good for me sometimes. The things people say make me nuts. I know we should be tolerant of other's opinions and I could just ignore what they have to say. In fact, it's probably good to be aware of other people's views. But geez oh man.
The first one was a link to an article about big pharmaceutical companies killing yet another star (after Brittany Murphey died). I can't even elaborate on that one or I'll get all riled up again.
Then yesterday, "Looks like the media has most of your sympathy when they show Haiti. Before you start dishing out the dollars and begging for the leftover orphans that Brangelina doesn't get.. check out the history of this place first."
My very reeled in response? "Yep, I do feel bad for tens of thousands of dead people and their families. I feel bad for children who are left without parents. Doesn't matter to me what happened in their past. Human suffering gets my sympathy."
Turns out (I think) that he has a problem with our government using tax payers' money to help them (without tax payers' permission). That makes me a little less angry and slightly less aghast. Still, I don't believe we have a say in how every dollar of our tax money gets spent. Isn't that why we elect officials? So they represent us?
I don't know, people. I've just been getting frustrated lately.
We've been deemed a fit home for a rescue dog. Good news. Then we find out that our first choice (by far) has been adopted. Good for her, sad for me. Regardless, we may have a new family member at the end of the week.
