Im the only person in my family that voted for Obama. Every other person from the age of 18 to 70 is a fox news watching Obama hating rage filled person.
I can avoid politics.
They cant.
Help me.

It will be me and my hippie/outdoorsman uncle vs. the rest of the family. We'll just get drunk and make fun of Republican policies all day. I'm looking forward to it.

I guess I'm lucky that my Family mostly shares my political views, and that they aren't pro-secession, anti-obama-at-any-cost republicans.

Pretty much everyone in my family either doesn't give a shiat about politics or is to the left of or somewhere around democrats, politics rarely come up other than the more gossipy/inside stuff.

I had Thanksgiving last weekend because that was the only time we could all get together.

My dad is a retired military officer who thinks Islamic fundamentalists are going to invade and conquer the United States. My sister picks stocks for a Wall Street firm. My brother is a biology researcher. I'm a computer programmer.

It was an epic 2v2.

/stepmother thinks she's a druid, so she just got drunk and talked about fairies or something

Can't wait to spend the day with my in-laws. They keep a portrait of Stalin over the mantle.
 
2012-11-21 10:17:45 AM
I'm not saying shiat, other than pointing out that recent rule changes due to Obamacare are allowing me to purchase health insurance, along with hundreds of thousands of others (if asked, that is.)
 
2012-11-21 10:17:47 AM
I face the same problems Jae, and my solution is 2 fold:

First off I remind them that nothing has changed since 2010, and that the world isn't going to end. The republicans will stop anything like Obamacare from passing(remember, they consider Obamacare to be a bad thing).

Secondly, if that doesn't work(and it usually doesn't) remind them that there are other things they need to worry about, and change the subject to sports or kids.

If that doesn't work, go nuclear. Pull out your smart phone and start gushing about your "Obama-phone".
Then talk up how Hamas is the victim and how Bengazi isn't a big deal.
 
2012-11-21 10:17:56 AM
This is the true meaning of Thanksgiving. It's a time for families to gather together and fight.

I'm lucky here. Everyone who'll be at dinner is on the same page, except my crazy tin-foil hat wearing brother, who's so far left he's right.

/but at least he can discuss in a civil manner.

You generally don't have anything to worry about from white wine drinking dads. Except maybe some drama.
 
2012-11-21 10:20:58 AM
Wine on the table huh? You know they all drove drunk after their meal.

Where's the dui outrage? WHERE ARE THE BADGE-LICKERS?
 
2012-11-21 10:21:13 AM
This is why I don't understand why people bother with Thanksgiving.
It's just a pain in the arse, bunch of BS.

Our two family traditions are being Democrats and Dallas Cowboys fans. So the only thing that will piss us off regarding Washington will be our beloved Cowboys getting beat by the Redskins.

Any whiny butt-hurt loser at Thanksgiving can go sit at the kids' table and drink out of tiny Dixie cups and wait for their legitimate rape like the rest of them.

Wait...what?
 
2012-11-21 10:22:48 AM
Which is why I will be having a nice drama free thanksgiving this year at my house with good friends :)
 
2012-11-21 10:23:09 AM
My family doesn't even need politics to add drama to Thanksgiving...my idiot brother and his insufferable wife make sure every holiday is ruined. This year they aren't coming (they got mad over my parents not giving them money), but decided to still send insulting text messages to my sister and mother and refuse to let their kids come over for dinner. People are idiots if they let ideology get in the way of family...I'd take political banter over my brother and sil any day.

See if you can find a ringtone of an "Obamaphone" version of the "Bananaphone" song. Then make sure you get a few phone calls during dinner.

I can't help much, since I'm in a similar boat. Sorry.

Though I can say that most of the family will probably try to avoid politics this holiday, I dread the presence of my step-niece's husband. He's a WND fan, loves to take any opportunity to spout crap, looking for affirmation. The trouble is that he's also got a mental disability (really - it's a formally diagnosed medical condition), so I can't say much to counter him without looking like I'm trying to score on the intellectually disabled. I may have to get up and leave the room if he starts in, for the sake of my own sanity.

Say this for Grace for big effect:

in Joe Biden's name,

Amen"

We've already had our pre-Thanksgiving blow-up. Since my right-wing secessionist nut parents are ten hours away, I'll be spared dealing with them this week in person. We're still trying to decide Christmas, though, and familial guilt is a powerful rod. Honest to god, the way my health has been going from dealing with them, I'm leaning towards 'they can farking stew up there in the asshole of nowhere.'

Just set a few alarms and use that ringtone as the alarm sound. "Excuse me, I have to take this. My case worker is getting me car payment-assistance and a free laptop. Thank God for that Obama!"

You know all the pictures of the old bloated ladies crying on election night because Mittens lost? Yeah... that is my aunt in a nutshell. My uncle is also a retired stockbroker. They bought the "don't re-nig" bumper stickers and Rick Perry pledge rings (when he was relevant).
I actually chose to have a pescetarian Thanksgiving with my grandparents rather than dealing with that much butthurt and conspiracy theory banter.
 
2012-11-21 10:27:33 AM
Politics is interesting and important. If we can't discuss it cordially and intelligently even among our own families, we are truly doomed.



So, yeah... we are truly doomed
 
2012-11-21 10:27:37 AM
My in-laws peel the skin off of the Turkey and throw it away, more proof that they are communist.

Now they let me have all of the skin, they are hoping I'll die of a heart attack. If they're happy then I'm happy.

My two brother's wives are not allowed to be in the same room together they fight so bad. My oldest brother has three kids, and his wife has a daughter from a previous marriage. His stepdaughter is 17 and pregnant, his daughter is 13 and turning boy crazy. My SIL actually told my sister and I that we were prudes because we didn't think it was ok for a 13 year old to have their boyfriend spend the night in their room with the door closed.

Know that there are many of us out there just like you. I don't know how to deal with this issue either (my neo-con dad is seriously scaring me lately) but I love my family and I remind them of that fact when things get too tense. Good luck and FSM help us all tomorrow.

What are you, 12? Avoid them. Ignore them. Dick around on your phone or tablet. Get drunk. Watch football. Talk to your aunt who won't shut up about her damn cats. Leave early. etc.

FTA: And now, it will all play out in person. In this family, the older generation is more liberal, the younger more conservative. So Andrew, a Republican, particularly expects friction with his aunt, Anne Brennan, 57.

How does this happen? If I had kids, I would feel I had failed as a parent, and failed to provide a proper education if they turned out to be Republicans.

Just change up the Thanksgiving prayer a bit:

"Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that two stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!"
 
2012-11-21 10:38:13 AM
My family is mostly conservative but we respect each other regardless of opinion and political stances. We rib each other a bit, but it's all rather harmless (same goes for religion - I'm the only atheistand "librul" as far as I know).

A few weeks before the election my Aunt (a staunch Republican Christian) was giving me crap about the President when I first arrived at a big family get-together. I laughed it off, but later that evening as we sat down for dinner, she looked over at me and asked (as she has for years) if I wanted to say the prayer. I usually politely decline, but this time I said sure. I closed my eyes , bowed my head and said "O' Mormon Jesus, please bless this bountiful meal and bless Joseph Smith who brought Your true word to the world on golden plates given to him by a talking bear. Bless Mitt Romney so that he will become President and lead our nation to properity and Mormonism so that we will get our own planets when we die and become the gods of those planets and populate those planets with our kids. In Your name Mormon Jesus, amen."

I looked up and everyone was staring at me, then started laughing and clapping with the exception of my Aunt who just smiled and said "can someone do a REAL prayer now?".

HA! this is my family.. my brother... while he may not wear tinfoil, he saves his nail clippings in a jar in his closet and believes sarah palin would have been our savior..... OH!!! he also keeps his wisdom teeth that he got taken out at the ripe age of 19 (note: he's 41) in a napkin in his jacket pocket. carries them around with him 24x7
