Hey Hip, you've got me all wrong, but I can understand your inference. You'd be hard pressed to find a single person on this earth who knows me and would consider me to be a nasty person. Quite the opposite actually. Im a very kind person...Not to toot my own horn, but Im probably one of the most genuinely nice people you've ever met. I'm quite reserved and humble, and have tons of good friends all over the US... Ive spent thousands of dollars of my own money running an organic co-op garden that donates all it's product to local families and food banks... I rescue animals from shelters , would give a stranger my last dollar and the shirt off my back if they needed it, and practice many other random acts of kindness like its my job. Yes , I can be mildly sarcastic at times, but it's almost always in good fun. I've been very fortunate in my 30 years on this earth, and believe strongly in helping others in need.. Not at all a " ranting person on the street".
That said, I'm also a former U.S. Marine, and have no problem calling people out for what they are. No , Dallek has never done anything " personally " to me , but I don't see how that makes a bit of difference. Stalin never did anything to me but I still think he's an asshole too.. People like Dallek are a cancer to society, and just as much a cancer to this community. I've paid enough attention to his douchbaggery to know that he's a lying scumbag.. I call it how it is hippie. I'm sorry that doesn't fit into your philosophy of being "kind" , but sometimes the truth hurts.
