While I certainly can understand and appreciate Cyclops' post, I find it a bit disingenuous for a couple of reasons:
1) The logic falls apart when we all are more than giddy to rip on some half-witted, spoiled, poorly raised moron WR acts like a jackass, yet we hold our POTUS to a much LOWER standard? Wow. We even demand apologies from Hollyweird Starlets and Pop Stars every time they lick a donut (really or misspeak in ANY way), but Trump tells a flat out lie - and it's like "Meh, doesn't fix my taxes..."
2) I have no doubt that there are many uneducated people who are just struggling to pay the bills who don't have the time, will, or capacity to participate in such conversations. And literally, God Bless 'Em. But, if you're going to chime in on pretty much each and every political thread - that really doesn't cut it. It's a cop out. A corollary to that would be when one was more than happy to bash Obummer, but now suddenly, it's "Meh, look at these guys going TILT!"
Honestly, I'd respect a guy saying (essentially) what Cyclops said and concluding it with "....and for that reason, I'm really not going to participate in any of these political threads." (and mean it) I know we have quite a few of these guys in our populace -I'v dranken of the mead with some of them.
"Obama (HRC) Horrible! Did you read about Bengazi, Pedo-Pizza! etc. etc. etc. (for the past 8 years)"
Trump does/says something stupid/wrong/weird: "Meh, doesn't impact me - look at these guys TILTING!"
... Is an intellectually lazy, disingenuous cop-out. If you (in general) really mean it, STFuP and GTFO. Start threads about shiit you DO want to talk about if you seriously mean you couldn't give a shiit.
