    I think I'm gonna start hitting the gym before work. I just have no energy to deal with people in the evenings anymore. Seems like people in the mornings are the more motivated ones, so they don't sit there on their phones, hogging equipment. That's definitely a bonus.

    Welp wasn't the best idea to crack the drain on the water separator.

    Guess we got some air in it. Got a primer pump to put on it and start pumping.

    I think there's never yet been a true democracy. Groups always cater to a special interest group. Either the one promising the best lifestyle or the one with the biggest club/gun. It's only that currently the group who automatically assumed they would have the most influence are being shoved aside and they are insulted or horrified or vengeful. So heterosexual people hate freaks, European heritage form nationalist mobs, and men call independent women feminazis.
    No worries. The f*gs, n*ggers, and ####### will get shoved aside in due time.

    Very few people in this world truly hate someone else. People do things for a reason. Peoples natural instinct is to push back when pushed. When someone tells you what you have to do or have to think, it is a natural reaction to push back on that. The same reason people form gangs. To protect themselves against a common threat, whether that threat is a perceived one or real. Most folks just want to be left alone, not have something shoved in their face or paraded around in front of them and told they need to accept it.....or else. People have always been tribal. Folks naturally group together with others who like minded. Anyways, just my take.

    We all have to accept things that are outside our nature. Single people have to deal with couples everywhere and kids everywhere. Short people see everything oriented over their eyesight level. Fat people in skinny chairs. Minorities in a neighborhood and carnivores in the vegetarian district.
    Difference is now instead of gay men being jailed or killed they can have their own nightclubs and likely won't be killed there. But hetero guys are mortally offended that somehow they are having splinters driven under their nails by the mere presence.
    The shove and shove back is an eternal reality. So when someone is shoving back to extreme measures it might be wise to understand their motivation. Pretty sure if you dispassionately review history there are enough instances of 'nuisance groups' being shoved to explain the shove back we are seeing now.
    Escalation of the shoving match by intolerance and disrespect on both(either) sides serves NO benefit and neither side is going away.
    Aren't we as a species smart enough for new solutions?
