  •  I have struggle with hate, too (4+ / 0-)

    Pure, blinding, white hot hate for the right wing in the country, personified by Bush, Cheney and the rest of the criminal cabal.

    They started the Iraq War for a number of reasons - not one of them "good." It had zero, absolutely zero to do with American security, and everything to do with enriching defense contractors, "kicking some Muslim ass", probably for the oil companies, so Bush could be a "war president", and a few other terrible reasons.

    These Americans soldiers suffered and died for Bush's buddies to make tens of millions of dollars personally (off billions of dollars of spending).

    Not only that, their suffering was used as a patriotic cudgel against those who disagreed with the war - or even supported unrelated progressive causes.

    Yes, hatred burns within me for the mechanism that props up the status quo for the elites as they throw away American and Iraqis lives to support their own magnificent lifestyles.

    It really is worthy of hatred.

      when I protested sending kids to death or mutilation: "They knew the risks when they signed up" was the usual response. Yep...and had a Dem been president instead, they'd have been rolling on the floor, howling with rage as they tore up the linoleum.
