    That's actually a good point. Before the election last year, I said it looked like a high school government election with the smart, wonky girl running against the loud mouthed bully. I know in my high school who always won and it wasn't the smart one.

    What's a "helper"?

    Seems pretty arrogant to look down on auto body mechanics. It's a tough job. Just because someone works with their hands doesn't mean they're less than you.

    That is kind of the thing... I understand the deep boiling anger I've been told about, but you'd think there'd be some sort of release and it would dissipate after winning. A lot of people describe a lot of different activities as being "cathartic", getting a psychological release, you'd think winning a national election would feel that need.

    They crave support from us losers, we are not showing any adulation for their "winner" and that just makes them sooooo mad....

It's going to be a long 8 years for you, well, if you're around that long, never know. /shrug
    I missed your last sentence in the midst if your blatant stupidity when I read it the first time. What the ever loving fuck is wrong with you? You took a swipe at a guy whom you KNOW has health issues? You're nothing but a fucking guttersnipe. And a crazy one at that. Jesus Christ. Get help.

    What the hell is wrong with YOU? I don't know or care about some anonymous person's supposed health issues. We're facing a real threat from North Korea that now has ICBM's that can hit Hawaii with a nuke. Have you no clue what's going on in the world??? Get a grip, woman. Get your nose out of the crossword puzzle and keep up with the news, the world doesn't revolve around you or davo.

    Bullshit, guttersnipe. You wrote, "if YOU are still around," not, "if WE are still around."

    And it's pathetic that you try and insult me for spending a few hours on a Sunday trying to improve my vocabulary. I also read books with a dictionary on hand so I can look up words I don't know. Unlike you, I don't find profound ignorance to be a redeeming quality.
    Thanks from Babba
