    Seriously. This toxic partisan political culture is poisoning civil society.

    What the hell is wrong with us?

    The left and the right pulling hair and screeching their bumpersticker slogans and broad brush pig ignorant partisan blamegaming? What's wrong with us?

    I'm no youngster. I've never seen such a dangerous ambient.

    We have someone shooting at one of our few remaining bipartisan non political fun charitable events because he wants to kill a bunch of (insert political party).

    The rhetoric flooding the country is poisoning us. And no one wants to take responsibility for stepping up and saying "enough already". For changing it.

    Our representatives are colleagues first and foremost. Political opponents second. They recognize it. That violence against one is violence against the others and against our very institutions. Why are we unable to recognize that?

    Democrats are hell-bent on destroying this administration.

    Any rational person can see it on this board.

    I'm just plain angry. And DISGUSTED. Have we devolved to our lowest common denominators? Empowered the most hateful amongst us? Sanctified mob mentalities?

    The HATE is on your side. You (collectively) get these nuts worked into a frenzy of hate until one of them thinks he's doing God's service. This is on you. Live with it.

    Congressmen (including da wimmens) actually represent their constituents fairly well.

    Attacking them is attacking the wrong people. It was bad when that blond woman got shot and it's bad now.

    The "Free Press" is over there pouring gas on the flames, too.

    The press needs reigned in. For real.

    It sure does seem that way. I keep waiting for it to stop, or at least calm down, and it doesn't.

    No need to be attacking Coyote. She is not hating anyone........not to mention that hate is coming from all sides.
