Well said! It would be interesting to trace the origins of this critical, mocking spirit that makes life so ugly today, and which make us sworn enemies of each other. I believe Saturday Night Live might be a good place to start; and then from there you can go to Political Science classrooms in the 50's and 60's.

This denigrating of others because of differing opinions is atrocious, and has severely damaged the ability to listen and to love others we don't agree with.
It creates real, palpable evil.

It is sometimes better to love than be right. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, and didn't Hitler and Stalin win by the politics of intimidation? Ugly! Come to think of it, so do abusive people.

You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but who the heck wants flies?

Just in case logic escapes you. You want to catch flies so you put them outdoors instead of inside your living room. We catch flies to clean our environment.

Sounds like Ann is a little bitter. Personally I'd never take financial advice from someone on welfare or weight loss advice from a fat person
but you know the old sang goes "those who can't do teach."

And why does she have to attack people who like organic food? Isn't that being a critic? I hate it when people try to make me eat processed crap i tiressly try to keep away from me and my family just because they have no knoweledge or concern for their own health. It has nothing to do with where the tomatoes were growing or what direction they face it has to do with the chemicles they sprayed all over them.
