What could one of hip hop’s greatest rappers of all time and America’s least favorite president possibly have in common? Well, for starters, they both have the ability to stir up people using just their words.

“I stand by all the misstatements that I’ve made.” -Governor George W. Bush to Sam Donaldson, 8/17/93

Our fears and insecurities over “the haters” (formerly known in the 90’s as “people who pray & prey on my downfall”) seems to by skyrocketing as a culture. One swift view of any YouTube video and you’ll surely see profanity-laced comments that make you scratch your head and just wonder – why? But, don’t worry about the folks on that branch of the hater tree, they’re human after all (and the easiest kind to deal with). The real hater you should be focused on battling is the little hater inside.
