Trying to solve problems in different ways than one’s personal opinion is no reason to angrily call names. This applies to both sides of the aisle. Accusations of lack of character or abundance of idiocy are not kind, accurate, nor productive. It really brings sadness to me when our politicians and government officials, and yes, radio & television celebrities resort to debasing others. My mother taught me that a person of good character does not put others down so he/she can feel better than or superior to others. Too often, it seems to me that that is all that is happening. Every person has innate value and should be treated as such.
