Acting Like Children

Acting Like Children
Kevin Bryant

Unless you are in denial about wrinkles, hair loss or aging in general, the only person on this planet that is going to agree with you 100% of the time is that person you look at in the mirror every morning. I argue every morning with my mirror telling it to stop showing me someone else’s face. To date, my mirror has never listened or done what I have asked.

Opinions are as unique to us as our fingerprints are. During our lifespan, we will form countless thousands of them. We may share similar thoughts on certain subjects, but no two people are going to think the same way all the time. Rarely are two opinions formed by two different people for the exact same reason.

Now on Al’s page he lists some of his opinions. Some of those listed I agree with and some I do not and I’m willing to bet that none of them were formed with the exact same reasoning in mind. I went through Al’s list and here is what I came up with comparing my beliefs / opinions with his:

Strongly Agreed: 14 times
Mostly Agreed: 2 times
Somewhat Agreed: 3 times
Mostly Disagreed: 3 times
Strongly Disagreed: 3 times

So, why did I make the comparison of opinions? Perhaps it was to prove a point that no two people are alike. Perhaps it was to say that no matter what we agree or disagree on, to disrespect another for their difference of opinion is wrong in so many different ways. In my mind, there is a zero percent chance that Al is going to throw a fit and call me names and delete any and all post I make on his Examiner page just because I don’t agree 100% of the time with him. It’s sad when our own President lacks that same maturity level.

The White House’s war on FOX News is pathetic to say the least. The entire administration is acting like a bunch of spoiled 4 year olds who have never once been told no or slapped on the hand for doing anything wrong. Why don’t they just come out and say in plain language that because FOX News doesn’t fully support the administration’s agenda they are going to take their ball home and not play with FOX anymore.

The administration knows that two wrongs do not make a right and if FOX News or any conservative politician acted in the same manner, they would be hammered by both sides. The administration also knows that no matter what childish type acts they make, they will never lose their ACORN, SEIU, Soros, UAW, AFL-CIO, ACLU, the rest of the media and other far left groups and individuals so long as they still have the President’s ear.

900 Million dollars in campaign financing and donations went to the Obama campaign. Self proclaimed Marxist within the campaign admit to controlling the media. Media admitting that they didn’t have the time or resources to verify their own stories. General Electric standing to make multi-billions from this administration and throwing the weight of NBC, CNBC & MSNBC behind his candidacy, They all want paid back and Team Obama is giving them everything they want on the backs of the tax payers.

These are sad times here in America. You know they are when more and more, the world is starting to feel sorry for the citizens of the United States for the actions of our own government and for the path they are dragging this country down.

One question: Our form of government was supposed to set up in a manner where no one branch could become more powerful than the other and all branches were to operate within the restraints of the constitution. Where the hell is the Judicial Branch and why have they allowed the Executive Branch to amass so much power and why have they allowed the Executive and Legislative Branches to circumvent the constitution at will without so much as a peep?

Kevin and I agree on the most important issues, and those that aren't of high priority we can agree to disagree. There are some Democrats that I can do the same with. The problem that Kevin and I both have with President Obama, is that he can't seem to bring himself to accept any way or opinion other than his own. The very thing that he accuses Republicans of is the same thing he is doing! He not only refuses to see another point, but he seeks to silence them.
