Okay, so I really don’t like to blog about politics, and this blog is more about respect than politics. I was watching Bill Maher on Jay Leno last night and decided that I really, really don’t like politically driven talking heads. So after much thought, I’ve come up with a solution for how to deal with them. I’d like to gather up Bill Maher, Glenn Beck, Rachel Maddow, Rush Limbaugh, and every other person of the “political entertainment” persuasion and put them in a padded room together. I would not let them out until they agreed to the following code of conduct:
1. Treat others with the utmost respect – even if you do not agree with their point of view.
2. Do not accuse others of hate speech and follow with a monologue filled with your own hate speech. That is called hypocrisy.
3. Refrain from using every single logical fallacy you can think of while trying to make your argument. Repeat after me: I will not argue using ad hominem attacks, straw man, hasty generalizations, etc.
I really don’t think this is too much to ask. Sorry…just my non-political rant for the day. 🙂
