I just like the term "pandas of politics"...

Sorry for your loss

I've stopped talking to a lot of people or they've stopped talking to me. The one that's bothered me most is my ex-wife.

We've had a great relationship since we split up and we've remained close friends for over 25 years. This hasn't always gone over well with my wife and daughters but it was innocent.

She live in Missouri and when the Akin thing broke I sent her a snarky text that I thought she'd completely agree with. Now that I think back on it I don't think we'd ever discussed politics. Not when we were married and not after.

The text I got back stunned me. She didn't defend Akin, but she talked about how much she hated Claire Mckaskill and then went on an anti-Obama rant about how he was a "right wing socialist". We went back and forth a couple of times with my pointing out that she was just spewing boiler plate, Fox talking points without anything to back them up.

Then I ended the conversation.

I haven't heard from her since. I miss her and I'm worried about her. She's unemployed and she's depressed and I'm sure she's scared. But you get to where you can't communicate anymore when someone is spewing hatred and lies and now thinks you are evil incarnate because you don't agree.

Do what I'm going to do. Let it die down a bit. And then be the peacemaker. Reach out to her. Maybe you'll turn her around. That's better than writing off a friendship like that.

Simply Evil

Some bills are simply evil. This is one of them.

I know that this goes along with the "women getting rich off of welfare by having more babies" meme, but c'mon! Do the math. And then when you've finished doing that think who really gets screwed on this one...Those little babies you're always mewling about when they're fetuses.

Of course, none of these folks give a rip once the kid leaves the birth canal.
