Shell shock

I've found myself having to take hiatuses from the news cycle. I stand fairly confident there are hoardes of other Democrats in the same conundrum, ducking and dodging to avoid the immersion tactics of plethora media to remind us all daily of Donny the Bully. I've found I'm often unable to post commentary near as often as I did before the great Shocknado of November, the concurrent DU hacking not only via sheer avoidance of feeling like I'm commenting on asinine garbage I thought we'd collectively gotten past decades ago, but avoiding the emboldened trolls.
I don't post under the same handle I did before, I utilized the DU crash to repackage a previous handle that had me "typecast".
It sickens me to read of HuffyFrump attacking the vulnerable as a bully does. Not like we didn't see it coming.
And makes me hope with 10 times the fervor that wasn't so all consuming during the dark days of Bush II that enough of the Frump loyalists have finally heard enough of the tantrum to behave as responsible adults by 2020.
Regretting any commentary that I may have posted prior to these PTS disordered days that could have been co-opted by the trolls to strengthen their base's resolve.
