I had a thought last night as the news was going on and on about the upcoming presidential election.  They were talking about the back and forth of "He said.....well he said.....and he said...."  You know the garbage that goes on and suddenly it made me think that it was a form of bullying.  Do you see it?  It's a grown up kind of bullying and name calling.  Do we ever grow up and get away from our youth?  Why can't we play nice on the playground and quit the name calling and verbal shoving that is going on.  Every four years, no wait every year it goes on and on.  We are trying to teach our children not to bully, not to shove, not to be mean to other people, yet here we are everyday on the television a reminder that we are not doing what we preach.  How will we ever change?  How will we ever make an impression on our children to be better people when we NEVER change.  I don't care if it's the name of the game in politics, STOP IT!

Stepping down from the soapbox.

You are right, it makes me so angry that honestly... I don't even want to watch the news. We take the paper and of course I get a big dose of politics on the Internet, but it is bullying. We are in a big mess and I have no faith that either party can dig us out from this. My parents and grandparents talked alot about politics at the dinner table, I can never remember a time when we weren't complaining!

This is such a great post. I so agree the name calling never accomplishes anything good.
