Ok, so he apologized. But I have a sneaking suspicion it was only because he was going to get told on and the punishment would have been worse.
I guess it's better to ask for forgiveness that to crawl back under your rock and deny it, but hey, I'm sorry, these people MORESO than the celebrities we exalt need to be held accountable for their antics. Yelling "baby killer" on the House floor? Talk about politically incorrect. What is this, a sports event complete with hecklers? If you're going to heckle, man-up and say "Yeah it was me. Now what?" Do it like they did in the old days. when you disrespected someone you did it to their face and there were consequences; duels, penalties or even a good ole fashioned debate of the facts. This numbnut instead chose to yell and hide only to emerge later at the prodding I'm sure of his colleagues. The point is, in this day and age where this is seen as obscene and uncouth, it's ok if you apologize. Um no. If you want to be the moral and professional pillar you pretend to be, then be it. You can't have your cake and eat it too buddy.
If I have to be held accountable by the rules and decorum that govern society and our nation at large, then all must watch their tongues and be held accountable.
Current events and social issues used to bore me. Now, more than ever, I can't get enough. I've always had the desire to debate and seek more of the truth, (got me in loads of trouble in school) but as I've gotten older I've become more focused and passionate about both.
I'm here to write about what's going on in the world from my perspective and learn from others as I go along. This blog will range from politics to entertainment, from economics to religion and beyond. It's my goal to get people to think critically on the issues and not just accept what's fed to us as the gospel truth. This will be a forum for free-thinking and collaboration. With the help of contributors and readers maybe we'll be able to break the cycle of ignorance one person at a time.
