America’s Problem #2

Negativity. Some of us

  • Insult the person who disagrees with us. We can’t accept that people may have well thought out reasons for thinking differently and just learn to accept that fact.
  • Call the person who chooses a different life style weird, lazy, stupid, etc. We don’t like people who are different.
  • Think that the person who doesn’t believe what we believe is just stupid or wrong. We can’t tolerate people’s differences.
  • Treat innocent mistakes in traffic like intentional rudeness. We cannot give the benefit of the doubt.
  • Will be rude to a person we believe is not driving fast enough, by either riding their tail or passing in a rude manner. We believe we own the road and the world revolves around us.
  • Believe that if you look different or talk with a different accent (or worse yet – speak in a different language), you must be stupid, bad, or just need to learn how to be a Murican. We don’t like people who are different. And if they look like they might be Muslim, we don’t like them and we certainly don’t trust them.
  • Let life’s minor irritation get the best of us. We haven’t learned to let go and focus on what is good in our lives.

  1. No kidding. But to be honest, I have to remind myself not to judge others who’s opinions are different than mine. Because just as I strongly and freely believe, so must everyone else.
