Yeah this looks like my NORMAL days.
Man, that guy can PLANK a TON! I wonder what his nickname should be……
You’re still misunderstanding me, and still being dismissive and caustic. I’m sorry we can’t speak in person, because these columns are the worst place for having a respectful disagreement. I wish you the best.
……what I’m getting at is that you blamed the lack of civility and continued hate solely on the president. None of us are responsible for his hate or the hate others perpetrate. But we are all responsible for our own actions. If I perpetrate the hatred around me, I don’t get to blame anyone else for that. That’s me displaying a lack of charity. The president may be the biggest source of your problems, that’s not for me to say. But it’s uncharitable for me and you and everyone else to excuse anyone’s bad behavior by saying “it’s their fault I’m behaving thusly”.
@gopher gofer Thank you for your tempered response, and I apologize for not being more clear. Let me restate: Have you experienced a relationship between two people that is so toxic, it’s hard to be in the room with both of them at once? Where whenever they come together, the only thing they can talk about is how wrong the other person is and how much they’ve been wronged by them? You can clearly see how each of them is behaving reprehensibly, but when you try to talk to one about it, they immediately blame their behavior on the other. …..that is pretty much how our country has been behaving with regards to politics since at least the 80’s, probably long before that. At least back then, much of this reprehensible behavior was relegated to those whose lives revolved around politics. Now it’s in the response sections of non-political cartoons.
You may be justified in your criticisms of the president, but pointing fingers to justify your own lack of charity is every bit as much of the problem.
A tale of two sh*tties.
Yep, just enough to pay alimony and child support for the next 20 years.
IN our court.
Rather it’s a loan you give to the government…….along with interest THEY keep.
