Idiocy does not exclude Fox News.
Civility can be over-rated. There are some issues where hard-hitting, in-your-face confrontation is called for. I applauded Joe Wilson for crying out, "You lie!" during President Obama's State of the Union address last year. I was saddened to see him don the cloak of civility afterward. In America today, it's not civility we're lacking, it's conviction and courage.
Civility Institute to promote compromise among opposing political parties and views.
Compromise is just another word for losing.
If your view is one based on sincere principles then compromising only means you lack a spine.
What would the outcome have been if we had compromised with Hiltler? Never forget that many wanted that. What would have happened if we compromised with the Soviet Union? Many people thought that was thew way to go..
As Andrew Wilkow stated the other day, everyone knows it will just be the “Conservatives Are Nazis Institute.”
If anything, parents are the civility institute of America and if there should be ANY official word on the matter ... they should be charged with the responsibility to teach civility and manners to children.
But the gummint has pretty successfully taken the responsibility of children away from the parents that birthed them.
I wish I hadn't've said that ...
The usurper bastard in the White House comes to mind.
I don't want to promote "compromise" between constitutional government and the rogue regime we have now. A compromise between good and evil is guaranteed to be evil. What we need is to promote limited government, a ruling class that spends within our means and only issues laws to restrict our actions and only spends our money on the specific governmental roles enumerated in the Constitution. Splitting the difference between Obama's communist redistribution of our wealth and the freedom we were given by God just leads to socialism as a slower transition to slavery. No thank you.
Yeah, thats all we need, more institutes to make every one compromise every thing away they believe in and except things they don,t believe in, a little world of puppets, just another point for satan and the new world order.
You are right. Other things we're lacking include public honesty, forthrightness, accuracy and clarity.
And especially an intelligent sense of humor like Reagan had that points out the failings in the thinking of those that are tearing down this republic.
Shut up all you damn rightwingers!!
Shut up shut up shut up!!!!!!
LISTEN TO ME!
LISTEN TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“... define best practices and corrosive practices”
“Best practices” is a phrase used a lot in education, and
in the new Obamacare legislation. Basically it means we (experts) will determine what is best.
This type of thinking necessarily leads to a top down command and control type of leadership.
Banning liberalism in America would be a good start!
Start every political discussion with “We’re judging the content of his character”.
“In America today, it’s not civility we’re lacking, it’s conviction and courage. “
Most excellent observation.
Yep, let’s talk around the issue.
If our democracy is that fragile, it has no future
Oh, sorry. I forgot that leftists cannot tell the truth without offending 75% of the country.
Democrats lie, it's what they do.
Why is it necessary to reinvent manners and abandon honesty in dealing with others? I guess because it doesn't work for marxists so they want to find another way.
Reject their re-invention of America.
“You lie!” is perfectly civil when it is true. Facts cannot be uncivil.
“You are a poopy face.” is always un-civil and is what libtards resort to because they have no facts.
So how much money is it going to cost taxpayers to support this farce?
Only for stupid and ignorant liberals.
I think we ought to have it out right now and get it over with! Civility my a** It’s this PC crap that gags the conservative- play by the rules- right!!
Fox News is not to be trusted BTW!
A “Civility Institute” is only needed when the left are at the losing end of an election and will come in the form of the Fairness Doctrine.
According to the left,when THEY win an election, the people(electorate) have spoken and have given the left a mandate for change.
On the other hand,according to the left,when an election is stolen(2000)from the left,the electorate vote against their economic well being(2004), or the electorate is duped by FoxNews along with right wing radio(2010), a civility institute is needed to create proper dialogue.
