I came back to apologize for being, in this thread, what I deplore in politics--a distraction.
The fact that I was ill and much into my cups is no excuse.
I find the video very disturbing, and a blatant display of unnecessary emotional muscle.
I also find the politics of the previous electoral years, although subtle, even more disturbing. Pastors, Reverands, spiritual leaders insinuating persuasively how their congregations should vote? The notorious long lines and shortage of voting machines in predominantly Democratic demographic areas, the appalling world-wide embarrassment of the fiasco in Florida, and the list does go on.
We can recognize shabazz for what he is--and personally, I would like the past to rectify itself by not repeating itself in the future.
What cannot be denied is that President Obama WON this election.
If I made a fool of myself by voicing despair, it's because even if this is a game to you all, it's a new season.
I'd kinda like to get on with it, m'self.
If you guys still want to argue about this stuff, I guess you have the right, no pun intended.
I'm simply suggesting we get on with what is pending, most obviously. I'm not saying dirty political games should be tolerated--what I am saying is we should prioritize.
If the Republicans and the Democrats want to have a very nasty divorce, fine.
But the children come first.
Learn how to fight the fair and proper and fight. As a judge would say-Hell, even Dr. PHIL would say that you have to set aside the personal pain and make plans to act responsibly for the future.
Can we possibly have a discussion about a positive path for the future of our nation?
I'm not saying we should forget the past, not at all. I'm simply saying that we can no longer afford to rehash the errors of our ways, on both sides.
We have not lived up to the promise of..even our cartoons. Unless you are a Tom and Jerry fan.
There is a better way to live, to be, and both sides can win--and if we don't stop this, both sides will lose and we'll take the world down with us.
