We didn't watch the Republican debate and missed what happened. A soldier who asked if openly gay service people would be allowed to serve now that "don't ask don't tell" has been instated was booed. Why didn't any of the Republican candidates rebuke the audience? Why didn't the audience allow the soldier to ask a question without being bullied?
The right wing has gotten so out of control they think any bad behavior is just ok. President Obama was called a liar during his State of the Union speech. Members of Congress twitter during Presidential speeches.
An anti-bullying bill has been signed by New Jersey's Chris Christie (R) that is said to be the toughest in the nation, but is opposed by social conservatives.
I just don't understand when the rudeness began and why has it been tolerated for so long. I'm hoping for a return to social kindness again. Or at least some tolerance and crabbing in private.
