THE CIVILITY CLUE

Sam Smith

You know things are going poorly for the establishment when it starts appealing for civility as Obama did the other day, asking for a “a basic level of civility in our public debate.”

That means they’ve pretty much run out of arguments to defend the way they’re screwing things up and are now attempting to pass on the blame for to anger to the victims. It is interesting that Obama baRely mentioned the employment situation when talking at the University of Michigan graduates, something that even quite civil students would have been interested in.

I also like civility, however, and in the interest of improving my relations with the Obama administration I’d like to offer a few suggestions on how to increase the amount of civility in our land:

– Get out of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq now.

– Stop bailing out Wall Street and start helping endangered homeowners and the unemployed.

– Stop letting oil companies determine when their rigs are safe.

– Stop unconstitutional spying on people through wiretaps and other means.

– Stop trying to find ways to cut Social Security and Medicare for seniors.

– Stop calling for civility and start practicing it.
