To be frank - this whole 2 party system is a joke - a FAKE left/right paradigm is much more like it.

It may seem like Dems and Repubs are on the opposite sides of the fence, but behind closed doors, they are laughing and having a good time b/c they're really on the same team(i.e. don't buy this whole Dem vs. Repub dividing line on the health care bill vote).

That's all well and good, but it won't happen until the media, celebrities, politicians, talk radio and internet bloggers take the plunge first. Because they are a large part of the reason why there is so much animosity among the masses. And they all exploit it for their own personal gain. Another big reason is that people are simply too emotional nowadays when it comes to their beliefs, and in order to have a civil discussion, you have to be able to take the emotion out of it. The Steelers forum is a prime example - lots of people there who are overly emotional, and it makes it impossible to have a rational discussion. Now before anyone calls me a hypocrite, yes, I am guilty as charged on that, both there and here in the Locker Room. I freely admit I haven't always practiced what I am preaching here. Doesn't mean that I can't wish for better discourse here and everywhere else.

There is no excuse for Patriotism, rational or not. IF you love your Country and Freedom.

If one is in disagreement with an opponent, "civility" can lead to common ground. If that opponent defines "peace" as the absence of opposition to his beliefs, then there is no place for "civility".

This is not the first time in our history that partisan politics have ripped at the fabric of our society. It was probably worse during McCarthyism, and it was DEFINITELY worse before the Civil War. Things were also pretty heated concerning entry into WWI and, to a lesser degree, WWII....

It's cyclical...the internet doesn't help, because it gives internet tough guys a way to bully others anonymously, and the sheer amount of disinformation out there (much of which hack politicos hang their hat on) is just plain wrong.

This, too, shall pass...
