My gawd...every single frickin' weekend my husband and my 27-year-old son have to get into a rather excited political "discussion." My son is a fairly new neo-con, and my husband a liberal Democrat. According to my son, we are "marxist, socialist scumballs". My husband throws out statements with no supporting evidence or sources. So, it's a futile discussion. It's just a good thing our son is an atheist or there would really be some flaming going on!
I would love, love, love to have a weekend with NO POLITICAL TALK. I am sick of it. What the hell do they expect to settle here in suburbia? What good does spewing forth hot air in our livingroom while sitting on the sofa in front of the television set with the Bull's game blaring? If I go in and tell them to get along, they both tell me not to worry about it, that they are "just discussing" and I tell them it sure sounds like a lot more than that! They claim to be enjoying it. I find that rather a strange way of finding enjoyment.
So, I came in here in my office and am blasting Ozzie Osbourne and can no longer hear them and I dare them to tell me to turn it down!
