    Definitely agree to both this and to your post, razz.

    Yes, both Tybee and Rogar. Some folks almost seem to cherish and nurture their anger.

    I find the best way to deal with the frustrations of "idiocy" is to unplug. I never watch the news anymore. In fact my TV watching is way down. My home page is set to the NYT so it's not like I don't get any news. I can read headlines and get a gist of what's going on. I am doing less and less FB. Scrolling through Facebook is like lighting a match to ignite aggravation and anger.
    I have to use Facebook because that is the primary way my bulldog group communicates. But I have it set to rainbows, puppies, and flowers, more or less. I turn off newsfeed from my political friends. Sometimes I will go out and read their pages, but their posts are not coming into my daily feed.

    I only get daily pictures of bulldogs, Iris, and lilies. This is a very pleasing newsfeed.
