With or Without You


It must be warming up. There's a handful of fruit flies hovering over the compost.
So there's a Facebook group called "Christians Against Obama's ReElection." Isn't that just a long way of saying "Christian Sore Losers?" I must confess I heaved a big sigh and unfriended the former classmate who linked to this group on her Facebook account. And it's not because I only want to be friends with people like myself, I know that there's nothing really gained from only associating with people who think the same way you do, it's just that I don't have the energy for the negativity. Know what I mean?
Now if only there was a Facebook group I could join called "Housewives Against Fruit Flies Returning."

Ha! So true. I'm so tired of the Facebook negativity... or negativity in general. But I've been on the receiving end of the de-friending. Apparently some of my conservative friends don't like it when I post something "liberal". So they dump me. Oh well.

I hate all the negative posts on Face Book. I have one friend that has absolutely nothing good to say when she posts. It gets on my nerves and I very close to blocking her posts completely.

I am with you on all the negativity on Facebook. I nearly passed out when someone put some pic of some teens SHOT on there. i was so freaked out. i mean,seriously? They think it is a public service message? Really? I was glad the election was over to get away from people putting so much negative stuff on there. It has changed my opinions of so many. I don't care who you vote for, just stop the attacking, it is so unbecoming and damaging. I have had to block some people as it is just too much...

I've been unfriended as well and I rarely post anything that's controversial. It does leave you wondering - what was it they didn't like?
