You go Joe.

Reprinted:
“They talk about this Great Recession as if it fell out of the sky, like, “Oh, my goodness, where did it come from?” It came from this man (Ryan) voting to put two wars on a credit card, to at the same time put a prescription drug benefit on the credit card, a trillion-dollar tax cut for the very wealthy. I was there. I voted against them. I said, no we can’t afford that. And now, all of a sudden, these guys are so seized with the concern about the debt that they created.”

Bullies come in different forms. We all know the leader bullies but the follower bullies

are just as bad. The follower bullies reinforce and enable the leader bullies to have enough nerve to bully. IMO bullies are by nature cowards, so they need an advantage before they will bully. Size is often the advantage, but so are numbers. I have seen posters in DU get bullied by a group of bullies that are brave in numbers. Also, some bullies believe they have God, the law or the rules behind them to justify their bullying. They are only trying to clean up the neighborhood or DU. I call them self-righteous bullies.

IMO calling out jurors or alerters because you dont agree with their decisions, is a form of bullying.

It is difficult to stand up to bullies. One needs the community and friends help to eliminate the bullies' advantage. I am not talking about retribution, I am talking about support. If you see someone being bullied at work, at school or anywhere, stand with them. A lot of times, that's all it takes.
