I know this is redundant but I hate the fucker like no other

Caused me stress and problems with my BIL tonight. Yeah, he's a Trumper but I love him. We usually stay out of each others FB political stuff but a mutual friend linked him and it didn't go well so I took the thread down, but he felt ganged up on...ugg. I hate Hanutty for brainwashing my once apolitical brother's head during the Bush years and Rimbaugh for what he's done to my other brother. These coward dirtbag propagandists and now this fucking chunk of excrement, fucking traitor has poisoned the country and the world...I'm feeling so sad tonight...just want to vent, is all.

rethink your screen name, for starters. "Sugarcoated" doesn't fit the OP!




Seriously, hopefully it blows over with the BIL and you two can put the politics behind you again. But you're far from alone. Things are so incredibly polarized these days between the left and right. Scary times, really.

question about it arrggghhhh

This is, though I’m no expert, right? but these schisms and splits and high passion were very much a part of the Civil War and the families it engulfed...for whatever that’s worth!?

And as far as Mr. Mueller & Co., well, he’s got a crack team of seriously focused investigators and sharp, brilliant people working with him!!! He is not all alone and by himself, and he’s been doing nasty work like this his whole life...so I think he’s hangin tough!!

(...if only WE could, too, eh??!)

Keep the faith, Sugar!!

This quite probably wouldn't even work for a significant minority of people, but I have shunned* family members for less stress-inducing behavior than that.

I hope you can come to an acceptable equilibrium. I don't think there is any "win" available, but what do I know?

*I believe we can learn a lot from the Amish.

Same with both my brothers, though my younger bro, had him over for Easter and all was great, we just don't talk about politics. Older bro lives about 3 hrs away. I tore him a new one about a year ago for bullying my daughter (over politics), hadn't talked or seen him till Christmas past and all was good. They know I don't play and I'll walk if disrespected or toyed with. BIL is about to find that out. He didn't like being outmaneuvered, he's used to "winning" on FB because he's kind of a bully. I'm a chill easy going person but refuse to be shat on. And I do express myself politically on facebook and will shoot down lies when I see em.

.... cornered by Mueller. The more dangerous things may become. It is not beyond him to get his base all wound up and frothing at the mouth as Team Miller closes in on tRdump. You can't help but wonder if he will play the violence card and wind the tr-dumpetts up accordingly.

administration should be physically run out of the White House. I'm glad Mueller is doing his job but I don't see a "hair on fire" moment.
And I really hate it when someone says to calm down, be patient and let Mueller do his job. My reply is, I'm not stopping Mueller from doing his job so "let" has nothing to do with it.
That's like saying, "Russia has fired a missile at the U.S. Just be patient. It will probably miss us."
We are under attack and no one is really doing shit about it except Mueller. Because trump is a coward when it comes to Russia or any other meaningful issue for our country. And no one is really standing up to this Boob to his damn face!
