Not Your Typical Fire Fighter

Dear Jason Adair the Unlicensed Therapist,

I love all people earnestly. I reach out to my fellow humans and believe that we are all one--that we share a common spirit. I care about people. That said, I hate George W. Bush with a violent, virulent hatred. If that man was on fire I wouldn't piss on him to put out the flames. I want to see him tortured by Jihadists in a Muslim prison. I don't believe this is a contradiction, because I don't consider him to be human. But my other (licensed) therapist says this might be a problem. What does the unlicensed therapy community think?
-Mad as Heck

Dear Mad
The degree to which that kind of anger is acceptable depends on what you do with it. If you use that acid in your veins to get politically motivated and create change, that's fine. But if you're one of those people whose anger inspires you to make horribly obvious and derivative "agitprop" graphics for your myspace, or bore your friends and coworkers with your, oft repeated never realized, plans to move to Canada, or to seduce co-eds from the nearest college Young Republicans group for the express purpose of giving them the raging case of herpes you got at burning man last year, then you might be taking your hate for the president a little too far. Just remember; hate invalidates. And once you have invalidated your own beliefs and opinions, you will have just about as much credibility as the president now enjoys. One more thing for you to think about; everyone looks the same on fire. You could mistakenly watch and cheer, with a full bladder, as your mother burns because you assumed she was the president aflame. I think your mother deserves better than that, don't you?
Your friend on the internet,
Jason Adair the Unlicensed Therapist

so you managed to go one time without mentioning tits or sex? you are now a bit less of a dick. let's see what is next.... my guess is you will not be able to refrain from the tits and sex twice in a row.

I need to say something to this anonymous self-proclaimed dispenser of taste and morality: whatever you have against tits and sex is YOUR problem. And the way you're waiting with baited breath to see if it gets mentioned again makes the true nature of this problem obvious to everyone but yourself. You crave it. You want it bad. You want it bad in a way that only the dirtiest column by JATUT can give you.

I'd Piss on George Bush!
He wouldn't even have to be on fire!
Just to make sure this gets posted, I would like to add tits and sex!
