HYPERBOLE MELTDOWN

Original post made by M, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Mar 23, 2010

It dawned on me as I was reading one of the posts today, that many of the controversial concepts people put forward actually have ma lot of value. The problem is in the "Hyperbole" that's used to describe their cause. My son told me that we are experiencing a time when DEMOCRACY is working at its finest (I felt the in-fighting we are experiencing was devastating and a signal of failure). He mentioned that they have been no gun fights, deaths, assassinations ... merely hostile WORDS basking in the Freedom of Speech. It's just a thought, but toning down the exaggeration would bode us well in this era of contentious reflection.
