Blue Dot

Most of the people that know me, know that I am a liberal. As one of the very few liberals in Alabama, I catch a lot of flack. That's OK, I can take it. You cannot be a blue dot in a red state and not have a sense of humor.
On average, I get around five political jokes per day. Ninety percent of them are from the conservative point of view. I read them and if it's funny, I laugh. But more and more I'm receiving a lot of really harsh emails that are outright lies. A simple check on Snopes shows that they are untrue but people still mass mail out this garbage.
I've gotten in the habit of checking Snopes and if the email is untrue, I copy the link to the verification and I do a Reply All. I've made a couple so mad that they removed me from their distribution list - boo hoo.
I'm not sure how the election will turn out but my hope is that whoever wins, they can bring some sanity back to this country. God only knows we could use some.

  1. I know how you feel. I tell everyone that I've already sent in my early ballot, but they keep sending me unsubstantiated allegations. What I resent most is the attacks on the people, instead of analysis of the candidates positions on the issues. Too bad this country doesn't limit the campaign to about 6 weeks; it would cost less and we would not be subjected to the same idiotic retoric over and over ad nauseum.
