    Good luck trying to reason with him. Judging by what I've seen of him he's a Trump supporter and those kinds couldn't reason their way out of a paper bag.

      I have many times been unreasonable in my thinking and in my actions, and many would argue I still am. What I have learned, is that I can be wrong, and the only way I could have learned that was to be around those who were reasonably right, accept, listen to and look inward...and you know what, sometimes I was wrong, and changed my mind, and sometimes I think I am right. It does not happen in an echo chamber, it happens inside each of us and it happens through challenging the norm that we have all grown up to be, so I welcome a dissenter with reason.

      Not that you're judging, or a stranger to reason, yourself. It's just people that have opinions that differ from yours have horns, their eyes are set sideways and they wear their shoes on their hands, right?

        A person votes for Trump to oppress people like me.

        They send death threats to people like me.

        They encourage violence against people like me.

        They fantasize about committing genocide.

        So excuse me for not being politically correct to scummy assholes.

          Not going to make excuses for anyone that supports a bigoted prick like Trump. Yes, anyone consciously choosing to back that Know-Nothing mass of grievous personality disorders means they're down for everything you're saying. However, you're in this, too. Forgive me for suggesting it, but it seems to me anyway, that starting from a basis of fear, you've not only bought into the rabid alienation and mindset of persecution that Trump sells his thralls, but you've forfeited any chance at turning his political fortunes as well. Down to every last little ol' granny that's afraid of her mailman and every day since 1964.

          Sure, anyone with a sneaking admiration for this silver-spoon tin-plated sack of shit is party to the most bigoted administration since Wilson. Sure, there are those of them that've mixed up their persecution fantasies with their fantasies of persecuting. But buy into his super-villainy enough to confuse voters for villains, and you've given up. To him. To that. My suggestion is to deny him your fear, and laugh at him more. Less baring of teeth, more smiles. Very similar, but very different.

          @AdelleChattre -

          Sorry. I was in a bad mood earlier this week.

          You're right, being angry isn't going to make other people's anger too.

          Again, I apologize.
