Despite Your Hard Wired Limitations...
Friday, and I think I will give it a rest. A rest about writing about our domestic economy and all those interesting pieces that make it what it is. The political debate from the right is disappointing. There is nothing wrong with good political debate about policy or changes in policy, but the level of "debate" with regards to the Obama administration's policies by the right is not healthy. Calling President Obama a Hitler, or trying to find similarities between the Nazis and his administration is nonsense and dangerous. People that draw such parallels do not know their history, or, are liars with no regard for the truth, or what is good for this country. Let us debate our differences of ideas, but let us maintain a level of decency and intellectual substance. Not everyone can be a liberal, and that is acceptable, but on the other hand, do not let those you listen to turn your brain into mush. Read and think, despite your hard wired limitations, you may surprise yourself at how analytical you can become.
Have a safe weekend.
