      I Looked at his diary and was a bit confused..  You would have thought I insulted him personally which I did not mean to do to anyone.  Aji knows me very well and spoke up in that diary.  Mnay did.  I won't go there and comment.  He has a right to his opinion, something he obviously thinks I do no.
      I do not do call out diaries nor participate as the linkee to put myself in his space.

    •  HR has been removed. Points made remain. (0+ / 0-)

      This horrible diary is an embarrassment to the community and so are those that try to silence others with HR's.

      I removed the HR only because I do not want end my desire to never HR a tip jar.

      I will continue to speak against bullies no matter what they, or their enablers, have to say about it.

      The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

      •  Gotta love this sebastian99 guy. (4+ / 0-)

        For trying to silence Vetwife by HR'ing the tip jar for disagreement with the premise, and then for trying to shut Vetwife up by telling her to "love it or leave it."

        All because '99 doesn't like "those that try to silence others." Honestly, you can't make this kind of cognitive dissonance up. Just gotta see it in action to appreciate. Wow.

      •  Vetwife is hardly a bully (5+ / 0-)

        There are few faster than she to stand up for the underdog when someone is being truly bullied. I don't feel that you are being bullied here.

        You've used some nasty, some might say bullying language towards her, such as telling her that if she hates the country so much she should leave. That's mightily close to the right-wing "Love it or leave it" meme that was so prevalent during both the Iraq war and the Vietnam war, the one her husband was permanently disabled in.

        You should read some of her other diaries, ones in which she speaks of the difficulties her husband went through and still goes through to this day. The fireworks on the Fourth are almost certainly really triggering for him! Ask her.

        I think you need to look in the mirror a bit when talking about bullies.
