Bad Words

During the past few years there are four words in the English language I’ve learned to abhor. The first of that four is the word “democrat”, the second is “republican”, the third word in my new dirty word dictionary is”liberal”, and the last of the “Infamous Four”(so far) is the word”conservative”.
I’m an American, I do not have to be either of those and yet on certain occasions I must be all four. We are all human so there will always be differences of opinion when we are at the table to right a wrong or advance an idea, and as Americans we are all obliged to come to that table in the spirit of negotiation and compromise. Naïve you say, I don’t think so. We have solid proof of what chaos occurs when people within an organization are lumped into categories and labeled and that example is called the United States Congress.

  1. If businesses ran the way Congress does, with nobody hashing out issues and coming to compromises, they would all go belly up. Why can’t Congress get that? It’s so very frustrating.

    • From what I read the mentality inside the beltway is to defy all the rules that are required to operate an intelligent, comprehensive and responsible government. The only law still in effect there is gravity, and the pacs are working on that one.

  2. I agree with Carrie’s comment. It’s just maddening to witness.

    • Yes the frustration is maddening and from what we see they don’t care. The culture in DC controls the elected officials.

  3. Hear, hear!

    The nicest, yet most accurate 2 paragraphs I’ve seen written on this subject.

    • Thanks Laura, as always I appreciate your thoughts.
