Still a lot of waking up to do

A woman at work who likes to believe that she knows all and is totally hip and with it, not a big Otard supporter - was looking at Facebook on her phone and says "Ugh, I'm so sick of this crazy election crap like Obama's the end of the world, he's going to take away our guns, etc., etc.,

I said well he did sign NDAA after he said he wouldn't, and he did it on New Year's Eve when no one was paying attention.

NDAA? What's that?

The ability of the US military to arrest and indefinitely detain Americans without a lawyer or a trial.

She and the people around laugh at me. "And where are you getting this information?" In a condescending tone.

It's all over the internet.

Yeah, uh huh (she and everyone else in the office still believe the news tells the truth, and you can't trust any information unless it comes from mainstream media!)

Sent a bunch of links.

Well, I'm sure that's just for like war, or hurricane Sandy.

Um. OK.
