I Just Don't Understand

Shortly after Barack took office, I was walking through a store and saw some tabloid headlines saying that George W Bush was "depressed and suicidal." I overheard someone tell her companion, "He SHOULD think about killing himself after what he did to this country."


Just WOW.

How mean, petty, and just plain UGLY is that remark.

If I said that Barack should think about killing himself, I wouldn't be surprised if Blogger closed this blog. I could just about guarantee that Facebook or Twitter WOULD suspend my account if I said that on either of those sites.

I just don't understand some people.

It's only ok when a liberal says it against a conservative. When they do it, they're being "progressive". When one of us says it, we're hate-filled racists and war mongers.

Welcome to the new USA.

That pretty much sums it up.
