I usually consider the source on F/B; BUT.... when I get emails that are SO RIDICULOUS (for ex..people are STILL insisting the Pres isn't a citizen) THEN, I FIRE OFF an ANGRY response right back to the BIRDBRAIN who sent it! I don't care if they get annoyed; bc THEY annoyed ME FIRST with their STUPIDITY!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

I take a combo approach somewhere between JGary & JET ... much of what I post is, in fact political, and if some of my right wing family members don't like it they can just elect to block that type of content from their newsfeed. So far, I haven't added anybody I don't "know" and am not at all into trying to amass millions of "friends" ... I've pretty much taken the same approach here at SP ... in fact, my page here is now private so I can't be googled anymore, so if you want to contact me and you're not in my friends, send me a sparkmail. I'd gladly add about anyone from this team to my SPeeps or fb.

This is the first I've been around here in a bit ... your post got me over to see what this was about ... lol!

“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I respond if it's someone I know. If it's just the little sidebar saying so-and-so likes Mitt I delete it and say it's because it's offensive.

Personally, I jump right in with both boots and answer/respond with something just as inflammatory, but that's just me. Trying to keep FB a politics free zone would defeat the whole purpose, IMHO.

Living in Texas most of my friends and colleagues are conservative. Personally I'd prefer to keep facebook a politics free zone. How do you guys handle when a FB friend posts or likes something really inflamatory? I find it hard to ignore such things because it feels like tacit agreement.
