Boxer, Dodd and what is wrong with Politics these days.

Recently Barbara Boxer claimed that the equipment and people needed to fight the fires raging in California are not adequate because they are all in Iraq.

Senator Dodd said:
"In a Dodd administration never again will our houses be on fire because our troops are taking fire in Iraq. Never again will our first responders be left without the support they need because our president failed to do what it took to keep our community safe."

Anyone who is actually paying real attention to the issue and not trying to figure a way to win political points would see that the Gov't is doing it's best to deal with this issue and doing a good job. Before we really even understand how devastating this issue is we found ourselves surrounded by people who will say any horrible thing to ingratiate themselves for political gain and power. One of things most upsetting about this kind of hate speech is the pandering to the worst part of the human nature. The hate and evil accusations that do nothing but tear at the fabric of our society and demean us as a people. Their is nothing good for our society that can come from this kind of hate speech. It only separates us farther into factions. Soon we will be like the Sia and Sunni in Iraq. Killing and plotting each others deaths with no idea how it got this awful. Each blaming the other with out taking the responsibility or our action.

Here is the good news people. We can stop the hate speech. We can end the societal destruction that our political leadership is wreaking on us in order to promote their own political and power hungry ambitions. How can you do this. It's simple.

Stop listening to it. Recognize it for what it is and reject it. Stop giving your time, your attention and your money to anyone that promotes hate, anger or division. Anyone who demonizes another for their own political and power hungry purposes is no friend of yours, society, our country nor the world. Turn a deaf ear to people who promote hate.
