I think just about everybody hears, in early elementary school, that they have two ears and one mouth. Because of this, listening is often more important than being heard. What if that lesson was applied to political discourse and debate? What if people kept it in mind when they encountered people who they thought had nothing in common with (when we all have so much in common)?  America has achieved greatly, but to whom much is given, much is expected.

The most productive congress in almost half a century?

And quite a few of the American people want a return to the bad old days? It’s true. Not that I’m thrilled with the state of politics in this country. I guess I see why we’re a republic and not a democracy.  Hmmm.

No class.

I have seen a lot of things, but heckling the president during a PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS? I need you to go back to school or even go home and get some manners. For real. Even if death panels were real, which they are not, there is no excuse for this foolishness. I have always respected my president (even when he did things I REALLY did not agree with). I don’t agree with everything President Obama has done, but he holds the highest office in the United States. He has a key to the football. Respect that.
