Again, favorite auntie posting conservative bile on Facebook. I’m not going to respond (I swear I’m not). I just don’t get it.
If you fell asleep in 2006 and woke up now, just by wandering around the American landscape, what would you immediately notice as different? Good or Bad?
Little background. I live in a bottom ten city to live in. One of the worst cities in America to live. I don’t watch Fox News ever. I get a few hours a week on MSNBC. I watch Jon Stewart every day. I don’t get local newspaper, barely watch local newscast. Watch Brian Williams every night.
This Facebook post is just complaining how much America has changed. I’m sorry, I just don’t see many changes in my day-to-day life. Economically, changes haven’t really affected me. Had a job then, have a job now. I was out of work for a good 9 months, but that turned around, as I figured it would. Socially, I’m old married white guy. SSM and other social policies haven’t affected my life.
I just want to know that when uber-Conservatives bitch about how much this country has changed, what the heck they are talking about. I look out my window and America looks pretty much the same.
