Their stock dropping has nothing to do with their "liberal stances."

If that were the case, Amazon would be out of business right now.

I would talk to my doctor or, actually, find a therapist that you can discuss your issues with modern life. They can teach you tools to deal with issues that trigger you like someone asking for you to donate to a feral cat non-profit or an LGBTQ homeless shelter. I get it. For some, life can be overwhelming when we feel like we don't fit in.

Maybe you can find it in your heart to have empathy for others that also don't fit in but have it much worse than you. You may hate me for who I am but I offer my light to you. Good luck and hugs.
I'm in the minority? You think the majority of people like being asked to donate money at every turn?

And "my side" lost the culture war? You think so? Remind me again....who's the president?

And thanks for your concern about my mental health, and my lack of empathy, and how I "don't fit in" and all the other back-handed remarks. Let me guess.....you're a liberal. Making negative judgments about people you don't know. And I bet you think you're being magnanimous offering your "light" to me.

I get asked at numerous grocery stores if I want to give money to this or that charity. I don't think it has anything to do with liberal causes. I do think it's good to take care of those less fortunate.

.
Yes, I agree. That's why I give to all sorts of charities - from medical care to homeless animals. I just don't like being asked every single time I conduct a transation, and sometimes rather aggressively.

Anyone ever tell you you're extremely passive-aggressive? Maybe YOU should be the one going for therapy.

What to see people being triggered? Watch this. It's really clear who gets triggered and what the triggers are.

Maybe start a mental health fund for the people in the video? I have not doubts that people in this thread would support THAT cause.

Truth is your friend. Lots of love, light, kisses, hugs, rainbows and unicorns. Here's to safe spaces, crayons and complete isolation in a social feedback loop. Because, you know, life is so overwhelming, its just easier not to go out in it at all. And get mad at those who are actually living in it.

OK, you get it. I'm being somewhat factitious but the meaning is real. I don't say these things to people in real life but I feel like you could use it.

The culture war was lost. Yes, we have a Nationalist president that has brought hatred out of the shadows but his base represent a minority of Americans. BUT, the base is large enough that they can do some damage and they already have. The American empire was going down, as all empires do, but trump has fast-tracked it. I'm hopeful that we can repair the damage after 2020 (yes, I know trump could get re-elected--shiver...) We shall see.

??? What makes you think I care about or support all of those in the video. This posting is about a right wing Jew that is triggered by being asked for money to support things like LGBTQ causes, kittens, homeless people asking for money, etc. I get hit up all the time too but it doesn't affect my life. I say no or I donate and move on with my life. I'm not the one that needs a safe space. The OP does. Re-read the 1st posting.
