Politics



Politics. I haven't written on them for a while because frankly I'm convinced that no one makes logical arguments anymore. Many people shout things really loud but they have no idea what they mean and it's pointless to try and argue with them. Either way, this cartoon is an example of the kind of hatred that to me is despicable. If this came out on the "right" (which I have never seen) then I would rebuke it just as hard. This kind of stuff though is horrendous and shows how much contempt people can have for a person like Rush Limbaugh. Just because you don't agree with someone, vehemently admittedly, doesn't make it right for you to wish them dead! Yet, people pray for President Bush to die and others like that. This to me shows a break down in intellectual prowess. It's easier to wish someone dead then to try to argue their point. Sad and why I'm just done with politics.

The political scene as it stands today is extremely disheartening!! And you're right, it is amazing how much contempt people can have for political figures. It's hard for me to believe that people would publish stuff like that. What is this world coming to?? I hope it means that Jesus is coming back SOON!

Yeah, sometimes I can't even watch the monolouges on my favorite late night talk shows anymore because the underlying hatred for President Bush and other political leaders is very present in the jokes and it's very vile(plus, the whole "President Bush is stupid" thing is so old now). I think the thing that's bugging me the most about this coming presidental election is the amount of hatred that's being thrown from both sides.
