    Sometimes to keep the peace and get along with disruptive/contrary individuals, you have to separate yourself from them, Chipsticks. It’s just a fact of life. You separate yourself from them not because you think you’re better than they are but to preserve your own sanity. I’ve had to do it with some of my own family members.

      Family-wise I’ve had to do the same Majii, it’s not easy, but once you do it and you finally experience calm in your life, you know in your heart it was the right thing to do – but you just wish you had done it years and years before.

      As for the Tea Partiers – it’s always easy rejecting their bile and venom. I almost pity them, I can’t imagine what life must be like when you’re consumed with that much hate.

      Hear, hear majii. So far, an aunt who is mad that we are in Afghanistan, as if President Obama initiated all of this. I asked her if she was one of those one-issue voters. She demurred, also said she voted for him because the alternative was McCain. I was ashamed of her for personal reasons I need not discuss here. Just that, I thought she had better sense. A nephew said last year during the HC fight, President Obama should be more like Bush, i.e. just do what he wanted anyway. No understanding of process or racial/political climate. Too, I thought he had better sense. I will talk to them when they gain some. Hate to sound cold, but I am not one for triviality when the circumstances are so serious. These are not young people, but fully grown, 60 and 35 respectively.

    They are doing Pres Obama’s work for him, proving his point about the importance of education.
