CRAZIES ON FACEBOOK
Over the years I likewise have unfriended people with whom there are points of disagreement. Often it has been because of stupidity, bigotry, and political ideology. During the last Gaza-Israel fracas, I unfriended over a dozen, and when Bibi decided to meddle in United States politics, several more followed.
Republicans stand a very good chance of unfriending.
So do readers of the Jerusalem Post.
And most Vegans.
The recent 'unfriendly' and I have three FeeBeeFs in common. There would have been many more, but unfortunately most members of the pro-Israel side with whom I used to associate have been permanently put on my "do not disturb any further list" in the last seven years.
As well as supporters of Shas.
And diverse others.
Part of surviving in this world is knowing whom to avoid. That includes all people with blinkers, jackasses, narrow-minded dingos, vegans, hysterics, true believers, drug addicts, obsessives, and anyone who does not know how to use a frying pan.

Oh, and anti-tobacco activists.
Plus those who turn.
[The actual pro-Israel group no longer exists in any case; after I disassociated myself the boobies took over completely, and it fell apart. I have not been to a counter-protest or passover seder in years.]
People who are merely neurotic are safe.
I can always find things to overlook.
As I hope they likewise do.
PS: If you are on this list and I have typed your name wrong, sorry.
It won't happen again.
Update as of 10:30 AM: Just unfriended Susan S. in Jerusalem; she's gone full-on Clinton-hating Trumpite batshit.
Update as of December 29, 2016 (8:14 PM): Just cut contact with four more (Akiva, Ben, Bert, and another Moshe), and I note on Facebook that three other sterling people have "distanced" themselves.
They were probably Netanyahu fans.
Like the four I just nixed.
Oh damn well.
