Maybe you should stop reading Democratic Underground for a few weeks? It may relieve some of that Us v. Them, self-victimization, Left/Right thinking. Or, I dunno… Spend some quality (i.e. non-paranoiac) time with your kids?
P.S. I think it would be funny if you started calling me a “head-in-the-sand moonbat”. Kinda has a ring to it, dontcha think?
