"I agree with that. I have "friends" on Facebook of both persuasions that get kerried away. The best is when they get in an argument (especially when you know both combatants) and they unfriend each other and both complain about how life is too short, blah, blah, blah. I also like those people that say, "i'm cleaning my friends list and if you get unfriended then........", that is so high school.......but it is fun to witness as a sociology experiment." - 2828

I am close to people who will interject some political statement into a conversation that has nothing to do about politics - assuming that I agree with them - forcing me to pretend that I agree with them and care about their little political innuendo. Like if I am a sane and smart person I must be on their side and think like they do when the truth is I rarely if ever think about it.

It forces me to pretend to care. They wax poetic about some political person, like they know the person personally, and interject something when the truth is that we don't know this person anymore than the actors and actresses we see in movies.

If I want to keep the peace I have to pretend to agree and if I didn't it would cause this big rift in our lives that I would rather not deal with.
