I shouldn’t do it. I know I shouldn’t do it, but sometimes you just need to get that negative energy out and possibly calm down enough to formulate coherent sentences. It might even act as a self moderator. I’m always looking for ways to help Ray learn to settle himself and maybe this is my way.
There are so many pages to “like” on Facebook that I find just because it seems to match an interest, I have to be wary of what the page is about. Products are pretty easy -you like a product or you don’t. Blogs are easy. I read a blog, I like a blog, I like the Facebook page. What gets a little dicier is “rescue” or “Pit Bull” pages. I like several pages because of the cute pictures or because I know they might do good work and I usually check if other likeminded friends “like” the page as well. I gotta admit, I’ve unliked (disliked?) a lot of rescue pages because sometimes it just gets to be too negative or too guilt-trippy. I try not to do the same things myself but fear that I occasionally still let one slip through.
Today’s rant is about a Facebook page that had a link to a Pit Bull blog that promoted responsible ownership but as I was reading the post, felt that there were so many inaccuracies, I wondered if it was satire. Was this author acually a Pit Bull hater? This article was so skewed to divide and separate Pit bulls from the rest of the dog population for the pit bulls’s own good that even hours later I find myself irritated.
I find myself in a Catch 22 here. I have a pretty good idea of my readership here and value your opinion so if you’d like to read the post yourself, I can get you the link but I won’t link to it publicly. I wouldn’t “trash” someone publicly for their opinion and I also don’t want to drive any traffic from point A to point B.
Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, here is the obligatory Ray-Ray picture of the day.
