Should we blame the Internet or income inequality – the inability to rise above and get ahead?
Every damn day people tell me I’m an asshole online. And let me tell you, if I say something negative about you or your project, it’s open season. It doesn’t surprise me when you reach out and castigate me. But when there’s no nexus – I don’t know you and you don’t know me – why such vitriol?
Used to be society was divided into those who ruled and those who were ruled.
And we kind of liked this, because we had economic mobility.

I want to know why this is the Jews’ problem.
Please tell me what my tribe did to become the most hated. Seems we’re decried even more than immigrants. But that bozo shot those Indians in Kansas and what’s even scarier is the nincompoops have guns. It’s like the wild west, if you feel safe…you aren’t.
What’s funny is those who feel most at risk aren’t.
Those red state denizens where the terrorists don’t go, because there aren’t enough people there. Believe me, they’re going to Oklahoma and Idaho last. But we must beef up the military for a perceived threat that doesn’t exist, when we can blow up the world many times over and we cozy up to the real enemy, Russia.
Makes your head spin, doesn’t it? Continue reading
