Jan 31st 2010 10:00AMI think that's because you're probably conservative politically. Conservatives tend to think in black and white rather than shades of gray. This is not to say anything derogatory. It's just individual orientations to the way we see things. Liberals are more or less on a different plane of understanding. Again -- neither good nor bad. We need both for balanced thinking and action and the one should definitely not trash the other, but try to open up to embrace the differences. We need this kind of unity in our country and not be the "house divided against itself." Try to read it with an open mind, not to change your mind, but to try to see another way of thinking. God Bless.
Aug 20th 2008 11:27PMWe have two men who are campagning for presidency of the USA. Both tend to be thoughtful and thoughtful answers and solutions to what's wrong both globally and country wide. Politics is hard and as much as it becomes distatsteful with the barbs and accusations back and forth, reality is reality. I think the least we could do as citizens is listen as thoughtfully as the candidates speak and try to capture our trust and may the best man live. It's totally disappointing to read the thoughts of many of those making comments on this site. This is what's wrong with America. People like to expound their hateful, demonizing rhetoric and in the process, we are indanger of losing our democracy. It's been said long ago that the only way a people can support a democracy is to be educated into right and thoughtful thinking. The above comments are no example of what's right about America.
Jul 22nd 2008 2:25AM"Die Broke," a book that was on Oprah's book list, states that, originally, the inheritance came about as a result of a bilateral contract between the father and the son (whether written or understood.) The son's end is that he take over the farm and provide for his mother and any other siblings. Out of that grew the expectation that the parents leave an inheritance to the child(ren.) This expectation has driven families apart at the time of the parent'(s) funeral. Isn't there somethng wrong with this picture? The book's author suggests that if you want to leave something for your children, start doing it while you're still alive. Everybody is happier and it is much more equitable and helps to keep the family relationships in tact, if that be your choice.
