September […] On the drive to and from the East Coast, I paid attention to the billboards and bumper-stickers. Folks, the people in “Fly over” country are PISSED, from the guy that guides hunters, to the mayors of towns and cities, to state senators congressmen and Governors who are voting to arrest and imprison federal law enforcement officials for enforcing federal gun laws that don’t agree with state law … The political pendulum has never, in the history of humanity, stayed on one side of a swing.

There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior – It is called “Cold Anger“!
Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion; and that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.
Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful. Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently. Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning. Cold Anger perceives deception the way a long-term battered spouse absorbs the blows in the hours prior to a pre-planned exit; with purpose. Delicate sensibilities are dispatched like a feather in a hurricane.
Cold Anger is more severe, in part because it is more strategic. And so yesterday it began to surface:

With more than 90,000 votes cast, Mirkarimi had 31 percent support compared to 62 percent of the vote cast in favor of Hennessy. (link)
