I have figured out the problem…
I became politically aware sometime around 1999-2000 and was paying attention to politics from 2000-2008 while the vast majority of my peers were soaked in a college-fueled beer haze. Therefore I remember what a real goddamned scandal looks like.
Being lied into two wars, the attempted privatization of social security, the crashing of the economy (thankfully we didn’t privatize social security) the gutting of our public schools, Abu Ghraib, falling asleep at the wheel in the months before 9.11, the shredding of the Bill of Rights and the expansion of the Security State (you think this NSA shit just started?) Skyrocketing college tuition, the gutting of our public sector (you know, nurses, firefighters, policeman, all those first responders Republicans claim to cherish)
All this happened under a Republican President.
Somehow, the majority of my Facebook friends either weren’t paying attention or are afflicted with a serious case of selective memory.
I could literally spend entire days just correcting the ridiculous shit I see posted on people’s pages.
“Obamacare is going to double premiums!”- False
“Obama wants to take our guns!!”- False
I literally could do this all day.
For those of us who were paying attention, this Presidency is a cake walk. Of course you would never know it if you listened to the Facebook crowd.
