My blog is for the general public, and Facebook is something for family and friends (including friends from the distant past). But I must admit I've friended some people that I don't actually recognize and don't remember why I accepted their offer of friendship. Some of them post political things. This morning, someone wrote "If you believe Ted Cruz should have endorsed Donald Trump, please let me know by leaving a comment. That way I can unfriend and block you." And I'm thinking: I don't even know why you're up here as my friend in the first place. So I unfriended him. What kind of bullshit is this — stating political opinions with a threat to unfriend if you don't agree? What the hell kind of friendship is that? You can't fire me, I quit. And I don't care one way or the other whether Cruz endorsed Trump. I just don't need my Facebook feed containing the candyass bullying that is a threat to unfriend.
