" Youths in school have meltdowns anytime someone " offends " them. Grownups at a dinner table flip out on each other over politics. Drivers are ready to smash each other up if someone disrespects them on the road.
Intelligent dialogue and well mannered conversations are disappearing. It's too bad.
Yes, it IS too bad. Very sad. But this is what we as a nation get when the leader of America engages in disrespectful, ill mannered dialogues, diatribes, and " conversations " in the abusive manner that he does. Trump not only ENABLES the typical American citizen to behave this way towards others , he FOSTERS and PROMOTES verbal abuse, disrespect, and anger.
And most citizens feel empowered to display the same attitudes that their leaders do . Their view is " oh well, if the president can be an asshole, I guess it gives me permission to be one also. " I guarantee you Minimus, that many people are influenced that way, at least with the climate of aggression and hate within America now.
Until we have a leader who will show respect to our American allies across the world and respect to most American citizens- we will continue to see this pissed off attitude in people. Some people are like freaking robots on this planet. If they see someone in power abusing that power, they feel it gives them a license to do it as well. My 2 cents on your thread. Peace out, Mr. Flipper
