Show me someone who refers to the situation in Washington DC as “political crap,” and I will show you a well-insulated person, someone who is comfortable in life and sees no personal issues in the foreseeable future for him or herself, or loved ones. It suits individuals like these to “keep informed” but annoys the, well, crap out of them, to see others expressing their frustration.
Show me someone who refers to politics these days as “political crap,” and I will show you someone who does not have a sick spouse or child, who has just lost precious benefits, obtained under the previous administration.
The current administration has NONE interest in the plight of people who are not in the billionaire class. It’s nothing personal, obviously, or it would not be so diabolically efficient. Every handhold, every element that might offer a ray of hope to elders, is being systematically sabotaged, slashed, cut, removed, adjusted, or eliminated, by the current regime.
It’s enough to piss off the pope, who recently noted that for a country that called itself Christian, taking the stance that it has towards immigrants and people of color, is not specifically, too Christian.
Yes, social media is being inundated with political posts because there is a crisis. Someone who was not so well-insulated, might view the ban against Muslims, imposed by trump, as being what it is: a racist, petulant tantrum, by a spoiled, billionaire narcissist, acting like a two-year-old-brat.
Unfortunately, he is supposed to be acting like the President of the United States.
And the wall? Just check to see which of trump’s friends has a cement/cinder block factory, and you’ll find out why trump is so bent on the wall. He’s got to making money off of it.
So, yes, millions of Americans are scared because they are struggling to make ends meet, have health issues and they are losing some of the last vestiges of help. If it annoys you to have these people express their political views, you might want to just want to keep that to yourself.
Otherwise, folks might think you were being kind of arrogant and they might not want to hang out with you anymore. Maybe. I don’t know.
