I have to stop cursing...
my wife read me the riot act this weekend...that I was watching TV and continually cursing...my initial response was "BULLSHIT!" and then I realized that she was probably right.

She told me that my language has deteriorated over the last few months and that she's worried that I'm going to do something really stupid at the office.

Upon reflection, I'm really upset that I have become, once again, a very angry person. I had calmed down over the years, but I have more anger now than when I was in Vietnam War protest mode.


Look what they did to my effin country!!

2. totally understand! I keep saying the same thing..especially
when I hear MSNBC going on and on about McCain and Palin and attempting to Bullshit us on where this election is going. I have never watched more court tv during the day than I do now. Watch Olbermann and Rachel and other than that turn the tv off!

4. You're okay . . .
as long as you don't tell any patients to open their fucking mouths. :rofl: My husband keeps telling me to stay away from politics because I'm driving myself nuts. He's probably right, but I can't help myself.

7. That's pretty funny...
The term "bullshit" is the "cleaned up" version at my house. :rofl:

Seriously, if all I'm yelling is "BULLSHIT" - it means I'm really censoring myself because the windows are open...

12. As they say, if you aren't mad, you aren't paying attention...
Just offset that some with feelings of hope.

14. I can relate - my wife said the same thing to me this weekend.
I didn't grow up in the Vietnam era but I am just as angry at what these fuckers have done to our country!!

15. Like you, I haven't been this angry
since the Vietnam War. I also, though, haven't been this optimistic and as energized since then. Oh, and like you, I had the riot act read to me by my wife. As she said, "if you have another heart attack, that's one less vote for Obama, so it is in my political interest that you calm down." And that's why I'm nuts about her.

18. Tell me about it.
My dog won't even stay in the room with me when I'm watching Sunday morning shows. I never, ever used this kind of language before -- I used to be a Sunday School teacher, f*ckryingoutloud.
