    Why are people so oversensitive when it comes to opinions on politics?

    We are all entitled to our opinion. I feel like you have matured when you can agree to disagree. What happens with freedom of speech?

    Along with freedom of speech goes freedom of opinion. There is a problem with the political end of this. I have said for a long time that people are just getting way too sensitive about a LOT of things.

    It is this century and political correctness that has made everything so sensitive. It has a chilling effect on freedom of speech, as now every word can be used against a person.

    It is the creators of the PC that have made opinions on politics so sensitive.

    YES Jeanna, Excluding the "Small & DWINDLING Base" of Donald John "FANz", the VAST Majority of AMERICANs are indeed "EXTREMELY Sensitive" and Justifiably so, when it comes 2 POLITICs & the LIFE Threatening Detrimental Affects thereof ~

    RIGHT Now, there is a "RIGHT-Wing Crazy" sitting in OUR White House who has access to "SENSITIVE Intel" ~ His STATED Goal ?? To "DECONSTRUCT the Administrative State" ~

    YES, believe it or not as I TYPE, a former WEB Site Operator is Apparently Deliberately Undermining the USA & her Structure & Historical Models & Institutions ~ NOT Good ~ Don't believe it?? Don't listen to me, just go GOOGLE Steve Bannon & INVESTIGATE the Reports pertaining to this Odd Lookin' Fellows past 4 yourself ~ His Dubious History is on DISPLAY in the "Public Domain" ~ WHY is he allowed to ROAM Our White House ??

    In ADDITION, the "FORCEs of Good" primarily comprised of Independants & Progressive DEMOCRATs with a growing group of BETRAYED Republicans, are in a Fierce Political Struggle to STOP Donald John & his Accomplices from RESCINDING Health-Ins from MILLIONs of Americans while "GIFTING" 800 BILLION 2 Wealthy Greed Mongers like Weirdo Steve Mnuchin ~

    YES, believe it or NOT Congressional Republicans recently PASSED Legislation to accomplish this act of ANTI-Americanism & Cruelty, LIED & called it a "HEALTH-Care BILL"  and then, they actually GATHERED at the White House to "CELEBRATE & Gloat" about the unconscionably atrocious un-patriotic act they had just committed ~ I would Suggest NON-Believers Go READ the Bill ~ You'll be nothing less than "SHOCKED" ~

    Unfortunately, the Vitally Important REASONs 4 "X-Treme Sensitivity" in the "Drumpf / Republican Era, as short in duration as it may turn out 2 be subsequent to pending criminal investigations, are nearly infinite ~

      Yes I see your point. However if people do not like Donald Trump for political reasons I can see that. When it comes to him joking about women or making jokes about political leaders, that's when people get emotional..only actions can affect people.

      When did President Trump make jokes about Women or Political Leaders?

      And it is people like AP that are causing the big division. Not enough brain power to be able to accept the choice made and deal with it until next election.

      Greg
      Once again ap didn't use a single fact. What have the democrats done since the election for the country and the people. Nothing good, and a lot bad. Their resistance in the form a protesting/riots. All they do is cry and whine about the loss.

      Jeanna ~ The PRIMARY Reason WHY the RESISTANCE of Global Citizens REJECT & will Stop Donald John is due 2 his LIFE Threatening IDEALs such as RESCINDING Health-Ins, Unlawful Religious BANs, His Personal CRIMEs & Constitutional VIOLATIONs etc
