Haven't you had enough of the professional pot-stirrers? I have. It's time to speak up for basic civility. Remember "manners?" Remember "walk a mile in another man's mocassins?" Can we make an effort to return to respect for our fellow Americans? I think we can. Maybe it's the moral equivalent of Evel Kneivel carrying a snowball into Hell, but I think we can.
This site is intended to be entirely non-partisan ... not against appropriate anger or passion ... but, we're FOR framing it with civility and respect.
