War On Terrorism

Or how can we beat up the bullies?

Terrorism is any act designed to cause terror. BOO!
Is this Halloween?
Terrorism has been practiced by right-and left-wing political parties, nationalist groups, religious groups, revolutionaries, and ruling governments.
What about the movies? What about amusement parks?
Maybe these bad guys are just bullies?
Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. Bullying is repeated and habitual. Bullying asserts domination uses verbal harassment, threats or physical abuse. Differences of social class, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, appearance, behavior, body language, personality, reputation, lineage, strength, size or ability can be rational for bullying. Bullies can form groups to become gangs or mobs. 
So are bullies terrorist?
If someone, a stranger, parks outside your house every night, is it an act of terror. If someone reports your dog barking to the police, is that an act of bullying?
There are so many examples when you feel fearful in a location that is not comfortable or see some people who radiate danger, real or unknown or become involved in a situation out of your control. It is all terrorism. 
Popeye used to open his can of spinach to beat up Blutto. How big is your can of spinach? With so much fear…. Excuse me terrorism, how will you protect yourself and your family against these bullies?
I’m not sure anyone I know believes themselves a terrorist, much less a bully….BUT….
Reading some of the comments on websites and responses to news stories astonishes me. How can there be so much hate? How can people throw around such anger? Are they bullies? Is this a form of terrorism?
