Too Much Politicking

I decided to unfriend someone on Facebook today, and there's a second person I'm probably also going to unfriend. I decided to do this when I looked at my wall and saw that most of the postings were from these two women who apparently have nothing to do all day but post snarky political pictures and comments on Facebook.

It doesn't matter to me what people's political beliefs are. We have freedom of speech as a basic right in this country, and it would be a dull world if everyone perfectly agreed with each other; I just don't want everything else that I want to look at crowded out by political crap.

If it were intelligent, well-written, well thought-out political thinking, like the sorts of things vdansk writes, I'd love to read it, even if I disagreed with it. But it's not. It's mean-spirited, scornful, derisive, and divisive. I don't see why I should have to spend my time reading crap that compares people of one political faction to zombies, for example.

I don't think either of the ladies I am thinking of are on LJ, but if you are--It wasn't because I dislike you; I just don't want to read the politicking. A little bit every once in a while would have been fine, but so much of it with nothing else--not fine.
