Social Media and Politics in a Hurricane of Stupidity

Readers:

Don’t let the word count scare you. This is a fun one so grab some coffee and settle in!

Dear Robin:

I’m finding this election season unbearable.  I’ve found myself raging against people on social media over two specific issues:

Donald Trump and Planned Parenthood.

I have been shocked that some people I know support Trump and are rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood.  Their ignorance has made me question communicating with them at all.  

But that’s not my question, my question is how to handle “fights” on social media over delicate political matters?

Social Media Drama in the Ugly Day of Now

(Readers, please forgive formatting problems.  We are working on the problem!)

Donald Trump, Planned Parenthood, and Politics in General

(Don’t let the word count scare you. This is a fun one so grab some coffee and settle in!)

Dear Robin:

I’m finding this election season unbearable already and we don’t vote for over a year.  I’ve found myself raging against people on social media over two specific issues: Donald Trump and Planned Parenthood.

I have been shocked that some people I know support Trump and are rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood.  Their ignorance has made me question communicating with them at all.

For her senior year she has chosen to room with two members of the football team, both about twenty years old, and one of them connected through family friends growing up. The young men are both VERY serious about their education and their studies.

Wife Addicted to the Computer

Readers:

I’m so excited!  I received a follow-up email yesterday from someone who wrote me almost a year ago.  

I LOVE IT when this happens so if you’ve written to me and want to share whether you took my advice and how things are going, please do.  

Email me at robin@robindescamp.com and I will write a followup if you like or keep it private if that’s your choice.

Here’s the original column:

Dear Robin:

I’ve been married for 31 years, most of them pretty damn good, but things started to go south about 12-15 years ago when my wife started spending time on the computer.

She mostly went online for email when the kids were in school but then at some point it just became a constant thing and she is always on Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and eBay and all sorts of other sites where she interacts with everyone except me.
