  • Old people will post anything on Facebook.

    One of my pet peeves is people who spread false information online. I saw this today.



    Robert never said this. I mean, I can’t stand the guy myself, but from my POV there is enough that he really has said or done that is against my values and I would consider, uh, not good.

    The problem is, freaking old people believe any dang thing they see or read. They don’t bother checking to see if any of it is actually true. I mean, why would they? Right? Anyway I have two Facebook friends that are really bad about just sharing these type of things without questioning them. They are both in their eighties. I occasionally say something, but it's walking a thin line. Both these people I have immense respect for. One is very special to me, as she and her husband helped me out a lot when I was child. The other is one of my best friend's dad. He is a great guy and Korean war vet.

    BTW, this problem is definitely not exclusive to elderly white conservatives. Libtards do it too. It’s just I have a lot of conservative friends.

    Also, although this isn’t necessarily a post specifically about politics, it deals with politics. I didn’t see any political threads, so if this violates the rules (if political threads aren’t allowed), y’all can just delete the thread. I’m not trying to cause trouble.

                It is not just old people......I am old (not really still very young at heart)and either unfriend or not follow people who insist on posting political stuff.

                You are right Beto is not a good choice. Knew his family well.....

                  When it comes to politics young and old alike tend to post from the hip. Some are just so ate up by party politics that they aren't always concerned with the facts.
