    Maybe you're just not educated enough, not eloquent enough, not empathetic enough...or just wrong. Have you considered that the problem could be you? just sayin'

    If you hate someone enough to kill them, imagine thinking about them every day...while you spend the rest of your life in jail.

    At the very least, avoidance seems like a much better way to deal with these people. I mean, you don't like them...why hang around them? Why not move if you're really worried what you might do? (shrug)
