War of words
“I am devastated and shocked by a recent conversation between my wife and our son. Politics related to the presidential election have created a war of words in our family. Our son has verbally disrespected and severely hurt the feelings of his mother. It is bad enough that our nation, state, county and city are so polarized that we have become adversaries. Now our family is divided not unlike families during the Civil War. Is this Obama's plan?”
“I do not understand why some people let the election get them so riled up. You do realize that your actual vote doesn't matter. The electoral college will choose who they want to choose. I often wonder if we all wrote in “None of the Above” would new candidates actually be chosen?”
“Stop constantly complaining about the teachers and administrators. Has it ever occured to you that your lousy parenting might be to blame for your kids behavior?”
Food for thought
“There is one way for our government to save money. Do away with the food stamp progam and let the state purchase U.S.D.A. food and issue it out like they did with the food programs in the 1960s. A lot of people wouldn’t accept this food and they couldn’t sell the food stamps for money to buy drugs and alcohol. This only funds the terrorists.”
