Complain about the awful people in your facebook feed here.

I can't even look into my facebook feed right now. I'm so filled with liberal rage.  I realize that most facebook users are stupid and post stupid shit on their facebooks for their friends to see. I also realize that most of the people I know from school are traditionally republicans because Sullivan is a small town and ripe with republicanism bullshit.
 
The main offender is a girl I know and whom I dearly care about her, her husband and her kids. She's also a republican. Today, her posts were like "Why are we launching missiles into Libya when we have people starving in the states?" and "O.B.A.M.A=One Big Ass Mistake America" and all that shit. I see who she voted for in the elections.
 
I just want to go into a fucking tirade about international policy. I'm liberal and I realize that sentiment is shared among people who don't realize about commitments to UN/NATO.  The military/industrial complex is gigantic tentacle monster that is fucking america right now. Fuck the conservatives when they want to cut social services to poor people.  Fuck them right in the ear. Slash half that damn budget and you have your quite a hunk of cash to run the government for awhile.
 
If more people would study up on their history and america's commitment to the world, than maybe stupid shit wouldn't be posted on Facebook. or maybe not.

Delete them then. This isn't your livejournal.

The rather obvious response would be "Why have we (by which I mean you, I'm Canadian) been sending trillions of dollars worth of equipment and people into Iraq and Afghanistan for a decade when we have people starving here int he states?" 
 
I don't have Facebook, partially out of a desire to avoid such people.

You choose who your facebook friends are yourself.
And also, this thread isn't really about facebook, is it.

I hate it when friends on facebook use it to advertise their stupid blog or bad band.

I have question:
 
I found this to be sentiment of many uneducated people in my area of the US.

At the moment there are dozens of get well soon messages being posted on someone's wall after they were beaten up by another person in my school for knocking over their beer. The guy broke his jaw in 2 places and he also needed surgery on his skull as well. Pretty eventful for once actually so I won't say Im complaining.

That is not a question. At all.

Um...that's not a question.
 
Clearly the situation is much more complicated than what I just said, but if somebody is going to post something that assonine I think its perfectly reasonable to turn it right back at them. I mean, how can any republican have the gall to make a statement like that? It's comedic.
 
EDIT: Ironically, I just realized that technically I was incorrect when I reffered to "a statement like that." THE THING THAT THE REPUBLICAN LADY SAID is a question, not a statement. But it kind of was a statement as well, just thinly veiled one.

I have one girl who is kind of a bitch who just uses facebook statuses to complain about all the other girls in my school and how hard her life is. But, I keep her on my friend's list because I don't use Facebook for friends really, I just use it to stay connected to my grade and what types of things are going on (since I don't party and such). Still, sometimes it's really hard for me to refrain from just completely ripping into her stupid bullshit. But I keep calm, because there's no reason for me to say anything really.

Beer. Serious business!
But seriously, that's pretty much what my feed looks like. The only eventful thing going on right now, besides the usual nonsense, is people wishing well towards a friend who crashed on his bike, landed on his face, and then posted pictures of his wounds from his hospital bed.

I block the people that normally post the stupid shit like that.

I read in her thing, she's a republican and am like Big fucking deal, so is almost all of Sullivan, MO.
 
and she didn't post completely stupid shit like that until today.
 
She's young, her husband's a police officer of a small town in Missouri, and she has two kids (one of which had a stroke after they were born.)
 
She reposts stupid bullshit that popular among the locals.
 
But goddamnit!

Are you aware that you can block specific people from showing up on your homepage?

I must be one of the last people on the planet to not have a Facebook account^^

Dude you are SO COOL for being SO much smarter than her, you should be proud of yourself

Posted by Stackboy

You get to choose your friends, you know.
 
Your friends on facebook are probably on their forum of choice, bagging you out for being such a whiny little hole right now as well.

I posted about Giant Bomb on Facebook, no one cared. I mention my penis and it's on.

Posted by Andorski

You don't see that shit when you don't befriend idiots.

Posted by ZeForgotten

The Live Feed only shows what friends write, right? 
So you're in fact friends with these people, correct? 
 
And you're better than them, why? 
 
 
I only have my friends and family on that thing and I seem to have picked a good bunch of friends because nobody there are complete idiots.

Posted by Bigheart711

I don't have anyone completely awful on my Facebook so far besides someone blurting out about failing a class, however I was surprised when someone I thought that wouldn't give a shit about me friend-requested me. I found out they did. :)

Posted by iam3green

lol at facebook stuff. i hate facebook sometimes with people on there. i hate the games that are on there.

Posted by wefwefasdf

You sound about as ignorant as her in some regards. Also, you can hide people from appearing on the newsfeed... 

Posted by Subjugation

Either you sent her a friend request or she sent you one and you accepted. In both situations you actively said "okay" to seeing what she posts from there on out. If you don't want to deal with it, remove her from your friends list. I went from having 500+ people on my friends list right out of high school to just over 100 now. I don't have to worry about people saying things that will get under my skin because I tailored my friends list to people I *actually know* and are *actually friends*, which I'm sure most people on facebook don't do. 
 
TL;DR: You are in complete control of the situation man, unless you really came on here to rant about politics.
