What kind of injustice makes you "fighting mad"?

I'm not sure why this other one deserved such a negative "BLAH" comment? I'm willing to listen to constructive criticism, but I'm puzzled by such outright hostility.

I get a bit incensed when my own country has to pass an actual bill to make sure we aren't torturing people, like it did today.

I get angry when I hear that we've hit 1,071 dead troops in Iraq.

And I really, really get pissed off when someone decides that disagreeing with an administration is the same thing as disagreeing with my country or its prinsiples.

Uh, I don't know, the first post to a question I posed was a shouted "BLAH." What was I supposed to think?

Still not sure why you deleted your comments, they are interesting.

All I saw was the "BLAH" and since it didn't seem that long after I posted (I was briefly crazy busy at work, so it was probably much longer than I thought) that you posted it. I'm sorry, I was utterly confused!

Wasn't it originally PT Barnum who said you can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time? (I know the Marley line - just trying to remember where it originally came from).

The sort of injustice that gets me hot is when someone is falsely accused of doing something dishonest or wrong. As a politics junkie, get upset about this on a near daily basis...

Kris Weberg | October 13, 2004
It's a Lincolnism, actually.

Barnum's the guy who said "There's a sucker born every minute," quite a different sentiment, and more in keeping with a guy whose business definitely revolved around folling all the people all the time."

Anna Gregoline | October 13, 2004
I just re-read Lori's post and I don't think there's anything controversial about it.

In my own life, the injustice that most vexes me is when I'm telling the truth and no one believes me. At dinner one night, some friends started discussing the Coriolis effect and how it causes water to drain clockwise in the northern hemisphere and vice versa; when I told them that's bullshit and the Coriolis effect is something else entirely, they refused to believe me.

I was going to write about the injustice that bothers me most in society, but Mike doesn't need any spikes in his blood pressure today. ;-)

Anna Gregoline | October 15, 2004
Let Mike worry about his own blood pressure.

Kris Weberg | October 15, 2004
Unless "spikes" isn't just a metaphor, in which case, geez, Scott, calm down!
