My Parents' Politics

http://www.irememberhamlet.com/hamlettoday/viewtopic.php?t=301&sid=563130ded9aa31e3392fca431e6efd76

Interestingly enough, my parents both fall pretty far to the left, driven farther in that direction by the current administration. I was raised with the idea that our planet is precious, and its resources are limited and to be used carefully. Shrub has driven my father to desperation. The link above was sent by him with the subject line: "someone finally described how I feel".

I have a newspaper clipping in my scrapbook of my mother's round ass, and above it a sign on her back saying "Impeach Bush".

My parents have been divorced for longer than they were married, but they agree on that.

I have one rabid republican in my family, and that is my father's brother. He listens to Rush Limbaugh. He bought a piece of property on the Virginia coast and decided to live there before he realized that all his neighbors are "niggers" (his word). He keeps a shotgun by the door. My father stays on speaking terms with him by not discussing politics.
