Back from GD and just got flamed.
I made the mistake of making a positive comment about Hillary. Didn't know if I would make it out alive.

2. Oh no...
you ventured into one of the Wal-Mart threads, didn't you?? And you had the gall to suggest something along the lines of "Hillary was involved before Wal-Mart got all evil" or "but she tried to tell them to hire more women and pay their workers more"...didn't you??

Asking to be flamed, you were! ;)

13. The nerve!
I agree with you, actually.

I'm not a huge Hillary supporter, but if anyone bothered to read the article...oh wait, it's GD. ;)

4. Well, serves you right.
I love the slamming I get for trying to post something moderate on a hot topic because I never know whether the pros or the antis will take greater umbrage. I've stayed out of the O'Connor thread because it seems to be a thread dedicated to calling her the vilest human in the country in response to her breaking rank and telling the truth about partisan influences on the judiciary. I just don't find that productive. :shrug:

8. Sometimes you just have to say something.
Even though people already seem to have their minds made up and refuse to see any other point of view.

7. Don't worry, I'll hold you.
:hug:

It's frustrating how polarized things can get in GD.

I don't tend to post much there, b/c of it.

It's too much of a turn-off for me, personally.

I also get tired of all the negativity and judgment, don't you?
