Consider me ruffled

I guess it was bound to happen.  We get more connected via Facebook and Twitter, and we are exposed to a greater number of opinions. 

I don't need to agree with everything all of my friends and acquaintences think....what a boring life.  But is it so wrong of me to think that people should actually KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT before they go shooting their mouths off?

I have seen several posts on Facebook over the past couple of days, all by friends who do not care for the President or his policies, blaming him for the new recommendation that women not get mammograms until they are fifty. 

Okay, so I don't like this new decision regarding women's health either.  It's a post for another time, but I think it's crazy.  But I just wish people would do their homework, figure out who to blame, THEN launch into their tirade....not blame it on a president they already don't like, just because they can.  

Like the President....don't like him.  That's your right as a citizen; but for the love of God don't make yourself look ignorant by not doing your homework.

Unfortunatly, that is what a LOT of people are doing. These people are so intent on inpressing their views against the Pres. that they are twisting, distorting and making up "facts" so their point is made.
