I'm beginning to scare myself. As the Reprehensible Right continues to spew their garbage, my anger

is reaching a Tea Party like level of fury. I'm at a level of hate and disgust that I never thought I was capable of. If the freepers want a war, I say bring it on. I'm a far left liberal who is also a gun owner who is in favor of gun control. There are more gun owning liberals then these assholes think. I love my country and would be happy to meet force with force if it comes to that. My blood pressure is up and my tolerance for these traitors is WAY down. Are others feeling this way? Or am I walking off the long end of a short pier?

1. They are mainly terrified little children screaming and threatening at the top of their lungs ...

because its either that, or crawling under the bed and crying in terror about the monsters that live only in their heads.

2. I agree that they don't believe we own guns.

Now, if I could just get this damn thing loaded!

4. They're feeling threatened

That's why they're shouting louder. It's a sure sign they know they're on the losing end. They are in the process of hanging themselves. Guaranteed. So take heart and enjoy the show. And don't back down, no matter what. This is what the thrashing of a dying system looks like. We're here to bear witness and to help things along.

Please don't let it ruin your own inner peace. We need you to be clear headed.

5. They (R) are attempting to lure you over to the Dark Side by provoking your anger

"Feel the hate, firenewt (Salamander?). Feel the hate & fear and come over to join with us Republicans - bwaa ha ha ha - on the dark side."

6. Turn it off and take some time

to nurture yourself. You'll have a longer life to engage in the struggle.

7. I just posted about something like this. I find myself becoming a mirror image of THEM at times.



Although I'm ashamed or embarrassed, I recall the years (most of my life) when I was blissfully ignorant and just didn't care enough to pay attention. I just waited for those who were "into politics" to pick the Democratic candidates for me, and that's who I'd vote for.

Now I realize how dangerous that was -- what if we ALL were so cavalier?

But I have to say, the past several days I've been on a NetFlix West Wing marathon (I never watched it when it ran), and although it's all politics (and they are hashing out THE EXACT SAME ISSUES we are now), just getting away from the "real world" has been helpful.

I still turn on MSNBC and check into DU a few times a day, but I've been less inclined to get tunnel vision and obsess about anything and it's easier to just pass by the outrage threads rather than jumping in and adding my own.

We need to heal -- both sides do.

8. If you're walking off the long end of a short pier, then I'm walking with you.

I have a visceral hatred of those stupid fuckers. They are ruining civilization and society and happiness and prosperity for my kids and my grandkids. I am ready for them to be eradicated like the vermin they are. I know it's not reasonable to feel that way but I am so over their bullshit and the future of myslelf and those I love have been unalterably damaged and continues to be damaged with every passing moment of their idiocy, obfuscation, racism, classism, hypocracy obstructionism, and their disdain for anyone buy their own damned selves.

I say bring it on too. I don't own a gun but I have an uncanny aim with one. I would rather fight them in the streets for control of my future than talk any longer about it. God, that sounds crazy but that's just where I am at the moment. My apologies to those who find the idea revolting. It's just a frivolous fantasy, anyway. It'll never happen because bluster as they might, they are truly too stupid and too cowardly to make the first move.

9. I have learned that for your own mental wellbeing

You need to occasionally need to take a break. Don't visit DU, turn off MSNBC, leave the radio off, etc. take a bike ride, listen to some music, read a book, do anything BUT politics for a week. I have to do this at least once a month just to get the knot in my stomach to loosen up. If you, like me, tend to be a political junkie, it can make you insane. Take a break. It will all still be there when you get back but your blood pressure will be lower.

10. Me, too

I got off FaceBook to keep my blood pressure low. Ignorance surrounds us. Sometimes you just have to step back and take a break. Hang in there.

12. Ignore them. Use your anger in a positive way by registering new voters or working for a cause.

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. Is not life a hundred times too short for us to bore ourselves?

13. I'm beginning to get impatient with them and have told more than a few a

work to just give it a rest and find a working solution to stop the killing since they have kids too. I also said that I think that the ones who are so set against background checks etc. are afraid of failing and not qualifying for a gun...therefore there are people who have guns that shouldn't have them out there and they themselves know it.

14. A lot of them have domestic violence on their record.

If people already have legal guns... but now can't pass a background check...what happens to their guns? Are they confiscated and by whom?

15. Don't know...

here they just passed a law that if a person has a restraining order against them they are to turn in any guns within a certain amount of time or they will be taken by court order. So it could be likely.
