    Excellent, Bill! Never in my life do I recall the President of the United States working AGAINST the people; siding with the trouble makers, instead of those whose job it is to protect the public from the trouble makers. Never do I recall a president working* against* race relations​, instead of trying to promote peace. Never do I recall such a degree of wussiness in our nation! Having one’s feelings hurt is part of life. Some people will hurt your feelings, and you just have to learn to deal with it. Why have we become a nation in which one’s sense of being offended is paramount to social order/disorder? Why are the rights of the “offended” more important than the rights of those who supposedly did the offending? I am 52, Bill. This is not the way I grew up. This is not the same country. I’m sure you feel the same way. I came across a wonderful quote in yesterday’s Press of Atlantic City newspaper. The quote surprised me, because the paper is unmistakably liberal! Perhaps it was an inside joke?! “A nation that draws too broad a difference between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools.” -Thucydides

    1. Hello Joy. Thanks for reading and commenting. Please forgive me for not addressing every point. I just got in and about to go to sleep. Still, we are the same age and share the same concerns. Yes, some of us do need to thicken our skin.
