  •  Exactly, JayFromPA. Thanks for your confession. (3+ / 0-)

    LinSea's diary was not written about Piers Morgan, or about me... or you.

    LinSea came here to share her feelings about a traumatic instance of domestic violence involving guns --- an incident that just cost a neighbor's life, leaving his wife to become a widow with several orphaned children --- that happened literally in her back yard and the house behind hers.

    LinSea wrote this diary to share her feelings and hoping to find support from the Daily Kos community.

    You might at least have shown LinSea the courtesy of acknowledging her feelings. Or, you could have just stayed out.

    But for some reason, you came in to deflect and suggest the diarist and others who are tired and fed up with gun violence are just "getting the vapors"???

    The people who get the vapors and look for the nearest fainting couch just at the thought of a gun nearby in a neighbor's house.... Sheesh.
    Maybe somebody here could learn something from this quiz:

    What's Your EQ?

    Or, maybe not.

    C'est la vie.

    In any case, find further discussion here:

    What Is Emotional Intelligence?

    Sheesh, indeed.

    "All learning has an emotional base."

    Hope you understand the concept.
    •  Accurate assignment of blame is crucial to sanity. (0+ / 0-)

      If a driver intentionally veers into oncoming traffic, it is an act of fraud upon the public to report it as a car accident because there was nothing accidental about the incident. And it is even worse to bemoan the event in a tone that implies that the problem with the head-on collision is the fault of the car.

      Yet that is the level of sanity shown here. Blame the gun for the creation of the widow, sure sure. If the guy had hung himself would the blame have been placed on the rope? No way, it's just not sane to blame the inanimate object rope for what the guy did. But it's okay to blame the gun.

      And then fall on the fainting couch and hyperventilate about the nearness of an intentional suicide.

      Seriously, the liberals of today are spineless. Where are the liberals of yesteryear, when they had the spine to lead a nation in protest against the vietnam war? Where is the offspring of those who had enough steel in their hearts to stand toe to toe outside the pentagon?

      Where are the liberals like this picture of Jan K? Why have they all been replaced with fearful shadows of people who tremble at the sight of an authority figure?
