    Oh absolutely. There are people on this very forum that aren't happy unless they are butthurt about something and letting everyone here know it with as much shrill aplomb as possible.

    You will probably find this offensive, but I was thinking about the Al Gore threads when I made this thread.

    Because people think Al Gore is a hypocrite for living in the lap of luxury, with a more than enormous (even by American standards) carbon footprint, while preaching to the world the reduce theirs?

    LOL. I don't feel offended, I feel highly amused!

    Ignorance, hatred and attachment are the three poisons of our world and the cause of all problems.

    When people are attached to the idea that they must be angry or that they have no control over their anger and thus must vent it hurtfully, you see a lot of illogical lashing out.

    Depends on how you define "naturally", but yes.
    Green Skin.
    Purple Skin.

    I think we can say yes on account of the fact that at least some people voluntarily watch Glenn Beck

    It has to do with caring. It's when people stop caring, take their emotions to a pub instead of a forum, it really becomes nasty.


    Feelings might go unexpressed
    I think thatís probably for the best

    Political correctness has given the cubicle bunnies and others low on the totem pole of life the ability to gain power by taking offense where none was intended
