Dewey BS: What Some Conservatives think of Bush (109* d) RE: BS: What Some Conservatives think of Bush 07 Sep 04


That is bit Unfair of you, Amos.

The metaphoric stick I have is PEACEFULLY AT BAY,


Your stick is at my throat with bitterness and profanity for expressing my opinion. The topic was:

"What some conservatives think of Bush" I am largely a conservative so hence "the opinion was expressed."

Such hatred toward the other side is un-necessary.

Have YOU Read Dale Carnegie's Book, "How to Win Friends and Influnece People"

He says you cannot convince another person of anything, and the best way to win and argument is to avoid one all together. Sure flaming and forcing you political opinions (with profanity included) makes the enforcer FEEL BETTER, but it put the other person on the defensive
and causes him to justify himself. Also it does very little to promote harmony with others or even have them attempt to listen to your side. Most times, people (out of bitterness) will avoid intersactions with such people. Also doing this, make the enforcer of the opinion look like less of a people for not controlling his emotions and his tongue, such a person might never learn anything new (as we all are not right ALL the time) as his mind is closed.

The true richness in life is empathy and understanding for the other persons pespective as well as your own, and an open mind toward all people on all subjects people.

Sure, there are people I dis-agree with, but I try to be Holy first, and send out love and consdieration.

If one has all the answers and greats the other person with vitreal, does this help his cause in any way, his peace of mind, or his interaction with other human beings.

I'll let you all answer the above for yourself, as I didn't think that voicing my opinion her was going to cause such a caustic experience.

I'm gonna stay away from the message broards and get back to meditation and writing, I get more multiplicities of blessings from this, than posting here with the dissidence and the self ego.

Which is NOT the spirit of God, nor the kingdom of heaven that is within US.
