Help me restrain myself!

A fairly distant relative and I are friends on FB. We have very different views on the world, but he's not super in-your-face about it. Once in a while, he'll post something that gets my eyes rolling a little, but nothing too over the top. This morning he shared a picture that is a blatant, 100% lie. I really want to post an accurate picture in response to his page, but I know its just not worth arguing with him. It's just frustrating to me that someone will believe the baloney he posted.

Well, that didn't last long. I decided to comment on the picture. I simply said, "that is a very thing picture, but the caption is very inaccurate. If you're interested, I can share some more accurate pictures with you." Now I'm waiting for the backlash.

Re: Help me restrain myself!

I have some friends like that. I hide their pictures and try to distract myself. I don't want to get into FB drama.

It involves a very hot button topic that I'm not interested in debating. I don't even have any desire to change his opinion on the subject; I just hate misinformation being touted as fact.

Now, I want to know what he posted. You can't withhold such information!
