"Why are people calling the police on people just because they don't have homes?" Abdullah exploded. "I used to like visiting the Westside. But both of these last two questions have been A-hole questions." She explained, "We want housing and services for people who need housing and services." With a contemptuous laugh, she added, "I am sure you have good people in Mike Bonin's district. Let's have questions that have been offered by people who are not complete A-holes."At this point, Mike Bonin looked pretty distressed.

I didn't vote for either and said fuck these asshoes. Never was it hatred though. Never did it consume me. They're both bad people in their own ways. Hatred consumes you though. It's a sickness. You literally cannot hate an individual if you've never met them or interacted. So by default you're basically delusional having hatred for someone you don't know. No different ...
