Ok To Hate

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  The word HATE is probably more used than the word LOVE.  The word HATE is used all of the time.  We hear about it all day long:

I hate broccoli. I hate terrorists. I hate liberals. I hate neocons. I hate tattoos. I hate smoking. I hate haters. I hate racists. I hate hate. I hate reality TV. I hate being late. I hate people that chew gum. I hate rap music. I hate country music. I hate the French. I hate cats. I hate bullies. I hate snow. I hate jerks. I hate eggs. I hate pop. I hate lazy people. I hate politicians. I hate the Yankees. I hate the Penguins. I hate the Red Sox. I hate the Vikings. I hate Ohio State. I hate Notre Dame. I hate communists. I hate protesters. I hate bankers. I hate CNN. I hate the mainstream media. I hate getting sick. I hate meetings. I hate imported cars. I hate unions. I hate the elitists. I hate the statists. I hate hate hate hate hate  etc.

So with all of this hating, is there any wonder there's alot of "hate' in the world?  Do you have to hate?  Can't you just ignore, or identify with another word?  I'm guilty of it...then again I am not saying it is wrong.  I'm trying to prove the point that people say you should not hate and you should be positive.  Well yeah I get that but to say you hate something...well I don't know if one is trying to embellish the disdain of something or someone, or do they really HATE.

It also makes people accept hate, or it makes them numb to it because it becomes to common place.  When I was little we could not say STUPID.  That was a bad word.  Now, it's used to much it defines more than what is just stupid.  Love, hate, stupid...take on extended roles than their original meetings.  Context is key of course, but when it becomes out.

Tough call.  Again I think the word is over used, so much so we get a blur between good and evil.  You hate Osama Bin Laden and you hate broccoli.  Kinda makes broccoli worse than it really is, and it lessens Bin Laden to a horrible tasting vegetable.

Let's use the word hate for evil things, like murder, Bin Laden, Ohio State, taxes...but not for things such as broccoli or being late.  Thing of something else to say.

I hate to say it, but don't be a hater.
