fb the day after

I am so tired of all the anger, accusations, outrage, contrived victim-hood, and more.  I thought it was just the election bringing out the worst in us.  Now the election is over, but it is continuing.   Now I am beginning to see that it is not the election, it is us.

What is the source of all the filth we see and hear?  Jesus said, "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" (Mt 12:34).  The problem with America isn't the media, the candidates,  the President, the President-elect, or those in Washington.  It is us.  We are merely seeing some evidence, the tip of the iceberg, the overflow of the reservoir of filth within us.

This is not the way to act after an election.  It is destructive to a democratic society.  It is not only rude, but unpatriotic and un-American.  "If we can't begin to treat each other in a more human way, this thing is going to go from bad to horrible."

"I'm Bob Blewett and I approve this message."
