Talk about guns and gun rights is rampant on my facebook page. It's exhausting. Same old.. same old. Those for gun control. Those who support the Second Amendment and want no changes. Read the comments section under any post about guns, and all the discussion and debate changes nothing. The chasm widens. 'Guns are the problem!' 'Take away the guns!' Then the.. 'No one will take my guns away!' 'I have a right to carry!' And the memes that people post. Both sides, right and left post the 'facts'. But the facts are different. Opposing 'facts'. Then religion comes into the heated discussion. Something horrendous happens as it happened this week, and people immediately.. and I'm talking minutes.. go to their respective corners. Just like in a boxing ring. And I want to scream, 'Fourteen People Just Died!!' But everyone has an agenda and his/her 2 cents. It's always the same. I'm so done with it. I'm posting photos, (like I always do,) of shelter dogs and cats available for adoption. Classical music videos from YouTube. Book reviews. Photos of my own two kitties. Anything but stuff about guns. I mean, aren't these people exhausted from yelling at each other? Of course, I can't literally hear the loudness and the disdain, but it's definitely there. The constant arguments. And people are criticized for praying. 'Praying isn't the answer!' 'Stop praying!' Well, I figure if one doesn't think praying is the answer, then one shouldn't do it for goodness sake. Some people pray. Deal with it. I've been thinking for quite awhile about getting rid of my facebook page.. but now I'm REALLY considering it. I think about how peaceful and calm and quiet my life would be... A facebook-less world. Contented sigh... Sounds more and more like a fabulous idea to me... !
