Just wanted to chime in to say politics is a real facet of our lives and affects most things, so the discussions will continue. However the insults
do no good but further pit folks against each other, to a level of animosity so often. I hope that we can remember we are all in the same boat, so
there should always be an effort to remain civil and teach each other. Not only does civility keep the communication lines open and folks learning
from each other, it keeps the divide from growing deeper.
As agitated as I get, I have to realize everyone is on their own path, moving at their own pace, so while some may be past the angry feelings, after
watching the bickering for years, others may have just gotten into the political arena, trying to figure out what is happening, and are flat out
pissed. Some, like I was, may be so ate up with frustration, they want to lash out and belittle others. I guess it is a growing process.
I often see people post about how bad Bush got attacked. But I think to continue doing what we hate seeing, is not healthy for anyone. So my hope is
that we pause for a moment before we post and make it a personal challenge to keep a discussion going, hopefully finding some middle ground, without
the insults and name calling.
Luvz you guys,
