129. Aside from Bush, Cheney, Rove and Gonzalez...
who I hate for what they've done for our country, I can't say I really hate anyone. And my hate for them isn't really hate I guess, because I don't know them. I'm so used to it now, that it doesn't really affect me or eat me up inside....much, anyway. And I wish I could stop, but they just keep feeding it. I can't feel sorry for bush - other people on here are much kinder than me.

I dislike the hatefulness often found here on DU, toward fellow posters. I don't understand it, really. I get angry at posters who tout their candidate by spewing RW talking points, or rumors, about another candidate, but after a while, it's just too silly to even get angry about, and certainly not worth hating anyone for.

There's a saying I think I got from AA, and I try to use it here - it's "take what you can use, and leave the rest" - I'm not always good at it, but I try. There are so many posts I've erased before hitting "submit", because some things just aren't worth arguing about, or responding to. There's so much negativity here sometimes, but the positive stuff far outweighs it.

The Democratic tent is a big tent, and DU certainly proves that to be true.
