Listening to the two political sides batter each other sometimes is very frustrating. Yet these people have a very big impact on my life. As they run each down and there are no consquences it becomes an acceptable behavior. Deragatory remarks and put downs are almost common practice in society any more. When will it stop? Politicians are supposed to be of a mature age yet the language they use is sometimes worse then what i have heard at a grade school playground.
This quote came afer a demonstration and for the paper to even quote it is a problem also. By using the quote the paper has become an enabler, part of the problem.
"Here is what I said: "These are extremist elements pulling together, distinct vocal minorities that frankly don’t believe in this country. They don’t want to see more people have access to quality affordable health care; they don’t want clean air and water. They fundamentally don’t understand how the American government, economy and capitalism work"
How would you like to be refered to like that? So often people do not turn the cheek any more, instead they retaliate and crawl down in the gutter and hurl their brand of insults. Personally if it doesn’t stop soon it will lead to some violence. There are some very upset people out there and are getting fed up with the name calling.
Our language we use is like this Tin Lizzie, kind of primitive. It would be nice if there could some respect for a difference of opinion. Be like the person that restored Lizzie, a little bit of care and respect for her age.
Aaaahhhh for the simpler times and to go for a ride down memory lane. May I help you aboard?
Have a great Thrusday getting ready for Friday.
