  •  thank you. It would be nice (14+ / 0-)

    To have a safe haven where one could discuss government and politics in a less antagonistic manner, but I think that would defeat the purpose of many. Being perpetually pissed off is a preferred state, and is apparently addictive. It's amusing to read of people who live in red states and think it's useless contacting their elected officials, but spend hours trashing and bashing and expressing their outrage about all kinds of things, many of which aren't even true. There is no intent to "do" anything. It's pure entertainment. I still can get drawn into the carnival atmosphere of it all, but have to remind myself that for the most part it isn't real. If I want to make my world a better place I have it within my power to do so, but not here.
