We all need to take a step back and try and respect one another as fellow citizens

Original post made by Jon on Jul 27, 2009

Of all people me, Mr. left Winger himself, need to express to you that it is time to let go, or at least work towards letting go.




The County is in a financial crisis, people are loosing or have lost their jobs and or homes, no job is safe, nobody is getting raises, the Far Right AND the Far Left are WAY out of control, almost to the point of a civil war!




, no mater weather we are left or right, black, white, yellow, red, male, female, straight, gay, Democrat or Republican.




I am always reminded of the Loma Preita earth quake, in which people went to great lengths in sacrifice what little they had left, to help their neighbor. It never crossed anyone's mind what religion or how someone voted.




Actually, we are all blessed in many ways, just to have a computer and the lights on.




I am going to try and not react so strongly to what I feel is B.S. and rhetoric.

Mediation is the key to working out differences. I think that this person should be invited to the city council to help mediate problems in communication. In my humble opinion. Web Link

There should be a "lighthearted" forum, or, interesting thought for the day forum, or "timely thoughts". I couldn't find where to share this.
Today's Herald Horoscope for
Pisces: Now everybody wants change, but they don't know WHAT to change !
Libra: Don't go along with a radical scheme. Seek info. There's something you're NOT being told.
.....that's probably good for everybody, any day.
