If many of us, including the “jump the gun” media with its appetite for sensationalism, would engage the use of common sense when exercising opinions over our nation’s public airwaves on radio, television, and in print news, there would be much less fanning of the “flames of anger.” In America the rule of law is our way of life. There are those among us who think their opinion is sacrosanct. If they choose to break the law to express their opinion, they are breaking the law and in America, law breakers pay the consequence for their indiscretion
If you are a citizen of these United States of America, that makes you an American… period. No hyphenation necessary! That said, how one conducts themselves in the public arena, if contradictory to the public good, may be
subject to arrest and penalties. Racists come in all colors, in many cases the cries of racism are akin to yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre causing chaos to ensue. Again, there are those among us that relish the idea of exercising their ability to stir the cauldron of hatred. We know who these snake charmers are, and when they rear their ugly heads, the U.S. media is there to help stir the current boiling brew… with sensationalism. Americans should come together and demand such practices be abandoned. Let calm prevail in this land of the free and home of the brave! All red-blooded Americans dismiss this kind of behavior just as we do a thunderstorm in the middle of the night. Common sense rules the occasion.If it’s the thunderstorms, we just roll over and go back to sleep.
