Personal attack hell yeah it was because i am suppose to get down on me knees ad tow lock step with everything other people say.
Bu that's just it, you don't have to get down on your knees to acknowledge something of value from the other side. You make it seem like you are all
right and everyone else is all wrong, that's all. Of course we have the freedom to speak, judge, and condemn, as well as praise and support if we
wish. But striking out at an entire side of shared society is just crazy like a Fox(news) imo.
Is there no middle ground here? Of course there is, and we have to come together at some point on some topic, particluarly in a thread from
hood about coming together in
Oh man, I guess I am just a little sensitive to being told everything is my fault when I know that it is not that simple. I am not expecting a hand
held Kumbaya session here, just a broader perspective and consideration of where others are coming from.
S'all good I guess, we can never all agree about everything, but there is certainly some room for unification me thinks.
ETA: the 'personalization' comes from a reaction to being accused. When you scream that the left is the problem, well it becomes personal to anyone
left of center no? That is why you get personally attacked so often, imo. Just because you don't name a member , does not mean they are excluded
from your generalizing condemnation.
Let's see, good corporation can provide jobs and income, bad corporation puts profits before people(Monsanto) and buys political power.
Good government provides help for disabled and elderly, bad government buys corporate interests and taxes/regulates too much. So there are good and
bad on both sides, but this thread is about coming together against ALL the bad, no matter which side it stems from.
