A Day That Will Live In Triviality

Day 8

I swear I wasn’t going to go political in December. I was going to try and make all these blogs about Christmas, Christmas carols, Christmas movies, Christmas shopping, etc. But then the anniversary of the attack on Pear Harbor happened after Nelson Mandela died. In case you weren’t aware, President Barack Obama ordered the flags be flown at half mast for a few days in remembrance of Nelson Mandela. How did that lead to a squabble on Facebook? Read on! (Note: My Facebook friend’s name and image have been replaced with Mr. Potter from “It’s A Wonderful Life.” This is to (a) protect their identity and (b) technically squeeze a Christmas reference into this blog)

As we all know, no one has ever changed a political opinion because some jerk-ass comedian argued with them on Facebook. So I just let this go by with out commenting…ah who are we kidding?

Great comment there, Tim. Except you’ve got the facts exactly wrong. Pretty much every president since FDR has ordered the flags flown at half mast on December 7th. Thankfully, Potter deleted my comment so very few people aw it. So as long as I don’t draw attention…

Ok…well, I guess that’s fine. You called yourself out on your own timeline. I guess that’s integrity? Well at least the incident is over so we can put this whole business behind us…

Oh COME ON! You passive-aggressive tool bag! Look, stop trying to blindly defend “your team.” Obama ordered the flags at half mast for Mandela and ignored Pearl Harbor. And he….

What? Oh no, Potter saw this and commented? Tim continued to argue? This can’t be good…

Oh so Obama DID acknowledge Pearl Harbor and did order flags flown at half mast. Well…just because you were right doesn’t mean you’re not a douche, Tim.
