While I do my best to be civil and to use profanity merely as occasional seasoning

rather than the main course of my opinion menu, I am ashamed to say that I am close to exhausting my supply of patient forbearance. I assure you that I am quite capable of language that will peel paint, startle wildlife and make Howard Stern blush, but I have managed to avoid such over-the-top verbiage despite the provocations of poltroons like Trump, Pence, Kavanaugh and Barr. I don't know how much longer I can comment on the doings of such moral mutants without using the terms which first pop into my head as I hear what new atrocity they are proposing to "MAGA".

So, if I start using more "colorful" language, I hope that you'll try to cut me some slack and understand that, like many of you, I am doing my best to "stay classy" under extremely trying circumstances.

Thank you in advance for your patience.

I imagined Trump as the dwarf and the monkey. May he and the GOP go down together.

8. I understand completely

I'm close to doing several things to help me keep my sanity.

1. One last post on Facebook, then my wife can do all of that crap.
2. I have already stopped Twitter.
3. No more Rachel. Every day she tells me 5 more reasons why the Feral Fecal Fragment should be jailed. Just tell me when he is.
4. I may even stop watching the evening news.

11. Let it rip!

When I get extremely angry, I've been known to let a few expletives fly, and I've been extremely angry since November 2016. Some days I could make a sailor blush.

12. Dear Atticus

Do not let political correctness stop you from enlightened self-expression. It is not the crude, rude, profane, or downright offensive language which threatens our country. Rather it is the DEAFENING SILENCE OF FAR TOO MANY AMERICANS TOWARDS THIS ADMINISTRATION THAT THREATENS OUR VERY EXISTENCE. LET IT FUCKIN RIP

14. Lots of great literature has been made so

by the use of expletives. I personally enjoy cussing as an enhancement to communicative language. Especially to express strong emotion. Conveyed well itís like stringing together a pearl necklace.

So itís OK to use that fucking language around me!

16. He's the biggest bag of toxic pus ever as president.

 

All bad words fit him and they are not hyperbole. I could not even dream of someone so toxic.

And those on the right have put this guy in our faces everyday.

I know that they love the fact that we suffer. But they also suffer too. I guess the more important thing for them is to own the libs.

I guess itís like being on the Titanic. They are drowning too, good show. Itís suicide and then genocide.

19. There are some people and nouns for whom

there is a pairing of only one or two solid adjectives. It's automatic. Like peas and carrots or Forrest and Jenny. For me, it's "Fucking Nazis."

In the case of trump, et al, there are two many adjectives that fit the verbiage of which you speak. Let it rip. Maybe it'll help you feel better.

It's only fitting that it be met with profanity. Let your fuck flag fly.

24. A British survey showed that the f-word provided the most emotional release to those on the

verge of terminal frustration, for what it's worth. On the other hand, a calm presentation is better received than an emotional thunderstorm. Panicky brains just don't absorb material. So on the one hand, you can do yourself a favor, but on the other you do your readers a favor.

Perhaps a compromise. Give yourself one or two sentences of much-needed venting, announcing that that's the end of that phase and the readers' brains can now relax for the rational part of your thinking!

Or whatever!❤❤❤

27. Anything you say won't ever be as bad as our so called president uses on a daily basis. ...

All of us are getting sick of the constant lying, constant whining, and constant putdowns. A true leader doesn't do this. Take care Atticus, and you'll be forgiven in advance should you speak your mind (and you really don't need forgiveness, as I applaud the 'to the point' verbiage and 'no pussy footing around').

29. Ugly times call for ugly responses, far more than patience. Standing on politeness in the face of

a democracy's dismantlement is far more inappropriate and wrong.

Anger is a genetic gift that helps our survival.

Anger drives remedies in the face of attack, media noise and lawless chaos.

Don't sweat your free speech rights. Venting is common around here.
