    Hope this doesn't get me banned, but with the media and politicians on both sides using the term "outraged" to characterize anyone who is offended or upset at assorted policy prescriptions, or objecting to about everything the President does, I believe (really!) that we've reached hyperbole fatigue. And it seems intentional to me.

    So, is this always-over-the-top rhetoric another Frank Luntz et al tactic? having led to such terms as "unmitigated disaster" to describe a clunky roll out of a government program that even the detractors must have believed would be fixed eventually, given the IT that is around and available these days?

    I mean, I'm outraged that anyone who already has health insurance (e.g., all politicians these days, all employed pundits these days) is outraged over anything about the Affordable Care Act, and its implementation.

    My rage is palpable! can't you hear me just pounding the desk! and stomping my feet! through the Intertubes!?!

    Save the outrage for actual human suffering such as violence, war, exploitation of children, and corporate robbery of consumers.

    You meet them halfway with love, peace, and persuasion ~ And expect them to rise for the occasion...
