Charley: Any list which includes Mishedlo - Michael Shedlock - is tainted ...

Mish is outspoken about his politics - as are you - and he makes no bones about his opinions of others - and neither do you. Both of you see great evil and danger in the world, though of course in different places. You are both highly skilled at character assassination, and you both take great delight in rhetorical overkill.

Charley, please: the next time you feel convulsed with hatred for someone else, restrain yourself from posting for a little while. Take a hot tub, or a long shower. Take a long and careful look in the mirror. Wait for calm to return.

Perhaps you haven't considered how your words reflect upon your own character. Think about it - is this really the impression you wish to leave? Who is hurt the worse, your target or yourself?

This is painful to watch.
