Actually I am not going to ‘Think About It’

When any of these phrases lead a Facebook post, Facebook comment or blog post comment, or verbal argument I tune out.

  • Wake up America
  • Wake up people
  • Think about it
  • This didn’t happen when we were kids
  • Sheeple

What other lame rhetorical phrases cause you to tune out, turn off or, turn away?
