understand this is common in today's mind set. i have been banned from all events from my side of the family [my wife's side is more rational and fun]. mine are atheist, rabid narrow minded argumentative liberals with TDS and used a goofy facebook post, which others considered funny, as an excuse to pick a fight then turned it into a case of when one is being an a**h*** it is always your fault. they are what i refer to a overpaid, upper middle class suburban hicks; the type that cocoon in large secluded colonial houses and never have ventured into the rough side of life. i have 9 grand children, whom i don't forget on holidays, and have to mail their gifts. been told by professional social workers that if a side of the family is that much of a problem it is more healthy to get rid of them.
