I live a dual life. In my "normal" life my husband and I own a company and interact with people on Facebook, Twitter, our website, and a blog that promotes our company to our customers. In this life I am apolitical. In other words, I keep my mouth shut and my fingers OFF the keyboards except to be a good little company rep. I know...I know...it would seem impossible..and it nearly is. The price of my restraint is my head routinely blows right off my shoulders.
Messy. If this keeps up, I'm going to get a housekeeper.
As my alter ego, I have a personal Facebook account in our company's name, as well as a corporate page. On the "personal" page, I have to endure posts day after day that make me WISH the result would be -- instantaneously -- THIS! ^^^^ Please. Dear God. Misery. Sweet release. Oblivion.
One post came through today. This from an outspoken liberal.
I read this and I wanted to laugh through the reflexive, involuntary screaming. This is Liberalism 101. You couldn't wrap liberalism and all its disastrous beliefs up with a prettier ribbon. But the woman who posted it...didn't get it! She thought this described conservatives.
And I couldn't say a thing.
SPLAT! My head. Gone.
WEALTH WITHOUT WORK -- the welfare state
PLEASURE WITHOUT CONSCIENCE -- War on Women for free birth control and unrestricted abortions
KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT CHARACTER -- overeducated intellectuals
BUSINESS WITHOUT ETHICS -- the corruption of big business aligned with big government
SCIENCE WITHOUT HUMANITY -- liberals don't even LIKE humanity, it's only SCIENCE!
RELIGION WITHOUT SACRIFICE -- Deepak Chopra. 'Nuff said.
POLITICS WITHOUT PRINCIPLE -- President Precious Drone-Strike 18-Hole (thanks Rachel, that was brilliant!)
What am I missing? How do liberals point the finger at others for the very things they have endorsed, supported, FOUGHT FOR for decades? How?
I would be drinking right now, but my head has not regenerated like a lizard tail.
