  •  It is amazing how much antisocial behavior is (5+ / 0-)

    rooted in fear. Bullying, strutting, violence,...Perhaps that is why I admire PBO so much. He maintains his calm in the face of incredible attributions of evil, name calling, threats, obstruction, simple Aholery...Not to mention the sheer level of  hate. I never hated even Bush or Nixon that bad. I despised them , especially Bush Jr for his idiocy and incompetence.

    I on the other hand am a live wire ... something  hits me in a painful spot I leap to that pains call to defend against attacks. Sometimes it is just a whisper of those who have hurt me worst but I can not control the rage that rises. I am working on it because I am sure many times the person who set me off did not really mean what I thought I was reading.  This is the last step of a long process of healing to learn to not see past events in current words or actions. I go away as much as possible to calm myself and make myself fit to be in KOS.

    You sound like a nice guy like my husband. Me I am a fighter and the one to most likely lose it and smack someone. But I am getting better at not whacking the idiots like my son (the reactionary republican in response to me). I don't even call him an idiot any more...OK OK I roll my eyes and he quits spouting Rush or Beck.

    Fear is the Mind Killer...
