Why can't we all just get along?

"There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day."

That's Psalms 46:4.

It's also what President Obama opened his remarks with at today's Arizona Memorial Service for the people killed in the tragic events of last Saturday.

I'm about as political as an orange, but for the love of Mother Goose can we stop with all the stupid rhetoric and have some freaking respect for the office? The man is NOT a Muslim, he's NOT the anti-christ and he's NOT the end of the world as we know it.

He's the leader of the free world trying to do the best job he can with the pile of elephant crap left for him by the previous regime.

Words matter. Whether we like it or not. And both sides need to realize that it's not US vs THEM but it's just, simply, US. Americans. Republican or Democrat, Black or White, Christian or Jew or Muslim or like many of my friends members of the Church of Baseball. For better for worse, for richer for poorer, we're Americans and we better figure out a way to by God live together or we're going to fall apart.

This message was brought to you courtesy of the off season.

Spring Training can hurry up and get here, thank you very much.

"If there are rain puddles in heaven, Christina is jumping in them today."

Well said, Mr. President.

Well said.

Very true all of what you said.

I still think Sarah Palin's an idiot

Ted D said...

And I wouldn't expect less, Tex.

I also agree.

Stacy said...

You're right; we have to find a way to get along and work together or we're done for as a nation.

Goin' deep over here, Teddy. :)

I blame the fact Rakes and I watched "The 75 Best Defensive Plays of all time in MLB" last night, Stacy.
