My friend Arminta dislikes the phrase just sayin' used on Facebook postings, because it obviously should be just writin'!

Today I am just wondrin' why I have interaction with people who are unbelievably illogical.

I am currently involved in a 40-thread dispute (just countin') on Facebook. A Facebook friend posted about the probable closing of a local nursing home which is her workplace. In anger about the situation, the granddaughter of my Facebook friend, posted a false statement about the President. I corrected her statement. I also wrote: "You can have your own opinion, but you can't have your own facts."

Then the tumult continued, with various family members attacking me. The mother of the one posting false statements began posting, instructing me not to "downgrade" her daughter and not to "preach politics". As I was doing neither, I responded with more facts.

I should know by now that people hate to be corrected and it only brings out more ignorant animosity. I can accept having political differences with people as long as they tell the truth. Hey, I was being "nice"; I never once used the word LIAR to describe her, but WHY do I have to have the last word?

Just lecturin' to myself!
