Have you officially become a slimeball? Trying to blame an attempted murder by a nutcase on former Gov. Palin? Have a nice, bitter, deranged life.
Someone sent me this email today. A grown man sent me this because I dare to post a link from gawker on my facebook. I called him after I saw the message. After I sent him an email calling him a mess and telling him not to talk to me if he couldn't be nice. (This is not the first time he's tea bagged my facebook)
This is what the world has become and it really scares me. Not in a bitter or deranged way, but in an actual sometimes I can't sleep at night way.
A congresswoman was shot today. A United States congresswoman and that has shaken me to my core. I am scared about what this country has become. It wasn't a freak event. She was a target, an intended target. She was shot at pointblank range.
I feel like we're always being shown polarizing hatred. It's not just run of the mill "the other guy is an idiot" stuff. It's the other guy is evil and must be destroyed. It's really scary. It scares me. Words have consequences. The rhetoric in this country has consequences.
I'm gonna get kinda hippy on you all and say, try not to be an a-hole. That should be your daily goal.
We need to realize that the rhetoric, and the firing people up and … for example, we’re on Sarah Palin’s ‘targeted’ list, but the thing is, the way she has it depicted, we’re in the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they’ve gotta realize that there are consequences to that action."~~U.S. Representative Gabrielle Gifford
