I’m about to do something unseemly.
This post will contain some large pictures, but they are Facebook statuses, so quick reads. This is also mostly ranting, but the title is not without its evidence.
So a person on my friends’ list on Facebook posted this (click on it, it doesn’t require a Facebook account): Obamacare requires RFID chip a.k.a. Mark of the Beast
Now, I saw the picture and crap below first because I’m used to ignoring Green’s non-humorous posts. I clicked on the ‘See More’ and promptly dismissed it. I then rechecked her status and became incensed.
People are represented by my love of certain colors. Purple is someone I don’t know, but agree with, Light Blue is a good gay friend from Facebook who happens to also be friends with Green. I’m Dark Blue/Cobalt. Light Purple is someone I don’t know but wasn’t conclusive enough to get a better color. Yellow is Green’s family member, who has a point, but I don’t care for at all.
Like I said, I was incensed. As of now, I see that I haven’t directly called Green stupid as Yellow perpetuates. However, I think I knew subconsciously that I feel Green is an idiotic right-wingnut, so I never called Yellow on it. She said she did a lot of research; as I said, I spent two minutes on google, quickly glancing over the obviously popular conspiracy sites that first came up (*SCREECHES*) and found several sites that said that this CHAIN MAIL LETTER that may have originated in Bill Clinton’s time in office is a complete HOAX.
Who said anything about her religion or slamming it? And why can’t I say my not-so-nice stuff? Can you imagine a world where nobody calls someone an ass or stupid? Do you know why we say such things? It IS like a slap to the face, and it makes you refocus sometimes- at least it does to me. Whenever I am insulted, I make sure to see if they are right. If they are, I will probably say I don’t care, but I won’t say some stupid shit like ‘you don’t have the right to say that to me’ because they do, especially if I’m being exactly an ass or stupid.
What is Yellow typing on, her flip phone? Or maybe, damn that autocorrect? Freakin’ a.
What’s driving me bonkers now is that Yellow seems to be just fine with Green putting this on Facebook so that her couple hundred friends and family can see. This post is, I repeat, a horrendous, evil lie and if you believe it and share it, I think you’re terrible. As I backstep in my last comment, I know I’m coming off harsh, but there is no damn excuse! And it’s because of the Religious Mentality, which Green exhibited with her first comment back to me- more on that later.
Good thing Grey comes in and tries to talk sense on all sides, in a way. I don’t believe in the Bible, as you can probably tell, but all that is true AND IN GREEN’S BIBLE. Why can’t she follow her Bible? That is full of contradictions… But you can read the language of the chain mail, it’s so obvious. So damn obvious! To this Green’s Grey! A fellow believer who is spouting scriptures one after another- sweet Jesus!
And here’s another thing, helpfully pointed out by the near-stupid Black. If this was true, there is NO WAY IN HELL it would pass. A great many people would try to get it destroyed. Plus, you have to choose Obama’s proposed healthcare plan. Wouldn’t that mean anyone not on the plan would be unaffected? Oh, right. Ya’ll don’t have the Mark of the Beast. You’re just trying to convert people to Godly ways because UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE is how SATAN is trying to get you. You see where Republican Jesus is coming from?
Both Grey and Yellow have a point. I have mine. But how can Grey think this is not being ‘hideously misinformed’? How?! This is Universal Healthcare=Mark of the fucking Beast=Antichrist coming soon. This is beyond freaking misinformed, this is downright evil. As of now, this ‘article’ has 89, 300 shares. Not eight-hundred, eight thousand… EIGHTY FUCKING THOUSAND- seven hundred shares from ninety thousand! Just so a certain troll can dredge up hatred, probably for Universal Healthcare.
But because I am being mean , harsh, an ass, condescending, I’m not worth listening to. I need to be respectful of the person spreading this shit around because she’s been misinformed. No, Green needs to be slapped, and slapped hard.
This is just me being a merciless ass. As you can see, by the end of our conversation, Yellow has yet to admit that Green is completely wrong. Like I said above, this isn’t about opinions. It’s either you are right or wrong! You don’t simply ‘disagree’ with someone that George Washington was the first president and another said Abraham Lincoln. It is not your ‘opinion’ that 3+3=6 and so-and-so said 19. This is fact or fiction.
I’ve looked up this RFID stuff. I can’t find a single site supporting this hoax (private, personal, or freakin’ youtube) that isn’t steeped in Mark of the Beast garbage. Nor can I find a site that calls this a hoax that isn’t rained down with crazy-ass believers who think this is true.
And this is Religious Mentality at its worst, and doing the most damage. This is making Obamacare look so bad it’s not even funny. If you’re not in need of it and have not sought to understand its implications, and you believe you are paying too much for it, and you’re religious (which is probably a given, sorry), you’ll eat this shit up like sugarcoated, marshmallow-filled chocolate. And, hoo boy, having Satan behind it all? The government can’t do anything about this- all a believer has to think is that Satan is talking through their mouths and trying to bring them from the path of god, and thus should be ignored and refuted and fought against and brought down- which is what believers do, all the fucking time.
Another part of this Religious Mentality is this desire to be respected for your beliefs, no matter how dumb or terrible. What is the limit, believers? I have seen Green make terrible posts about Muslims and those against too many guns, but when it comes down to her Christian religion, I should be nice.
P.S. Seriously people. Ya’ll know I love me some hot men and women doing cool shit. Why hasn’t anyone recommended Spartacus to me? I looked at one episode while watching Sunday’s “The Walking Dead”, going back and forth between commercials. My sister and I were like, “Why is everyone so good-looking?!”
