What has happened to the human race in America to have brought about such a attitude of callous and cold indifference,and a almost open display of hostility towards each other that we witness each and every day as we go about our lives.
Its almost as if we human beings no longer share anything in common that unites us except the common sharing of a piece of land.
Have we of the human race reverted back to the laws governing the beasts of the jungle where it is, "prey or predator," and any signs of civility shown towards others is viewed as a sign of weekness and vulnerability to be taken advantage of.
Our schools and our churches have always been charged with the duties of raising our society from the basic animal instincts of survival of the fittest to the nobler thoughts that we "are our brothers keeper" and to "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" but they have obviously failed to instill these ideas in America's citizens.
What we are witness to today in America, "...is a innumerable multitude of men, all equal and all alike incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which thy glut their lives. Each of them, living apart, is a stranger to the fate of all the rest; his children and his private friends constitute to him the whole of mankind. As for the rest of his fellow citizens, he is close to them, but he does not see them, he touches them, but he does not feel them; he exists only in himself and for himself alone; and if his kindred still remain to him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his country." Have we reached a stage in American society where any sign of courtesy, compassion for others is regarded as unsophisticated and naive.
Professor Lowell, Minister to Spain once said,"I have always been of the mind that in a democracy manners are the only effective weapons against the bowie-knife."The signs of a decline in our society has become quite evident by the total disregard for other people's lives and how easily citizens kill one another, manners are out, killing is in, as a way to deal with other humans.... was the professor right.

As much as you and the democrat party would like to make this a racial issue so as to appear to be the great defenders of the black people and all minorities, ie,'democrat voting block,'you can't.
This issue of reparnations for slavery that happened over 150 years ago is an attempt to extort money from the present generation of American which had nothing to do with slavery. For you to claim that reparations are just would mean that you believe that the innocent should be charged and made to pay for something they didn't do because they were of the same race as the person who committed the crime. Then to add insult to injury, you suggest that the black race hasn't been the beneficiaries of living in a white America and doesn't owe anything for those benefits they received,You would have it as a one-way street,the blacks are owed by White America but the black race owes nothing for the benefits they received because of living in a white America.That logiconlymakes sense if you are a democrat trying to play the race card and in so doing hoping to lock up and secure the minorities vote in order for your party to stay in office where they can dole out more money for votes.

I don't know of what you speak. I was but giving an example of an "attitude of callous and cold indifference,and a almost open display of hostility towards each other". I can't help it if the example from you was centered upon "minority" status. Are all minorities racial?

Go ahead and substitue another word in your original quote for "minority". It doesn't matter. It still shows your "attitude of callous and cold indifference,and a almost open display of hostility towards each other".

Because I speak frankly about what black democrats are attempting to do, extort money from the present generation of White Americans while you and other democrats prefer to obfuscate rather than to call this effort by your party and its black members other than what it is, its extortion, its not reparations because this generation of white Americans don't owe the present black generation anything for slavery as they aren't, and never were, liable for something that ocurred 150 years ago to people who just happened to have the same skin color as todays generation of black people.

You kind sir are off topic.

We are talking about caring for mankind. The ones who are homeless, the ones that need medical care, the ones who are poor, those that cannot afford private schools education. It's not my fault that you have decided to question decisions that have given the homeless homes; the sick medical care, the poor sustenance, all of our citizens a free public education.

What has happened to the human race in America to have brought about such a attitude of callous and cold indifference,and a almost open display of hostility towards each other that we witness each and every day as we go about our lives.

No truer words have been said. We have an example not even a week ago:

And you sir are jumping on the politically correct band wagon to show that your soo noble and soo above the level of everyone else. Somehow when I try to imagine just who you are,the image of you as Father Pfleger comes to mind, you, like him are a wanta-be
you would walk a mile to smell Obama's tennis shoes.

You, like all leftist democrats,have confused what Charity is and its ligitimate purpose..Charity isn't giving money, housing, free medical care,free education with the intent of enslaving the people who receive the democrat parties "charity"so they will do the parties bidding, to help further their agenda as the democrat party wishes.
Putting people on the democrat parties pay roll isn't charity,instead, that kind of charity, with strings attached,falls under the heading of 'payola, bribery etc,in the grand tradition of democrat Chicago ward bosses.True charity is giving enough aid to those who need temporary help to get over a difficult time in their lives so that they can once again return to being productive citizens.
Charity from government wasn't intended become a way of life,to last from generation to generation in families as it now does, thats not helping people to better themselves but enslaving them to the party which is doling out the "charity"/benefits.
If you want to help someone,don't give them a fish,but teach them to fish, thats the purpose of charity, to help, not to enslave them.

Oh it's "Ralph From Hinckley" this time??? It seems like all (Ha) of these posts from all of these "Hinckley People (Just You) have the merit of a 6 grade mentality or of an Neutered Weasel who probably still lives with his mommy.....

Let me see if this makes sense.

I guess there must only be one person allowed internet access in Hinckley? And only one person on Topix from Hinckley also? And of course anyone from Hinckley that would dare to be on Topix would have to agree with your warped viewpoint?

Seems quite far fetched.

But using your logic I guess anything is possible.

Well, it would appear that the obama lover is wrong again "ralph"
there are at least two of us with this same internet provider or whatever.
Hard to believe that an obama lover could assume that only one person could possibly feel contempt for this regime,
Sorry, there are more of us out here.
Right, Johnny?

Wake up and smell the coffee Tripnic. We are many.

Don't forget about me.
I can't help where my internet runs to or from.
But here I'am with a Hinckley site too.
Guess there are more intelligent people out this way than Tripnic knows about.
And there you have it.
Sorry Obama maniacs, there are still a few of us out here trying to sav the country from this dictator you elected.

Mislabeled, one of your character flaws. You and your band of idiots are the "Mouthy Minorities". The majority voted in our President for a second term. You know, more people voted for him, like the Majority of People and you Whining Little Men just can't cope.
