We've Lost our Sense of Humor 
We've replaced jokes with hate speech. 

We have forgotten that we fought for freedom and liberty
We have replaced liberal views toward rights with radical views of shutting down first amendment rights of those we disagree with.

We have neglected due process of law
We have disrespected our elected officials 
We have disgraced the nation with violence and hate

We are no longer a nation of love and care for one another
We only care for ourselves. And even that it is questionable with all the drug deaths and suicides.

Still this is nothing compared to what Lincoln inherited. 
A house divided will not stand. It didn't. We can't let that happen again.

It can start with you and I.
You and I have a choice on social media.
We can stop the hate or as many call them 'jokes'.

We need to just stop it right now. Don't post pictures of the president being killed. It is not funny. 
Don't post feelings and call them facts. Post facts and be open to an honest debate.

Be fair with your fellow man.

Only then can we bring down the negative rhetorical tone.
Only then can we see each other without party affiliation, without color, religion, sex or physical beauty. 
Only when you can look your opposite can you see the good in another point of view (right or wrong).

I will be the first to admit that I am not perfect. Only now I will give it a try. 




The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Now if only GOP reps would follow this. Especially the part about fact vs opinion.

Most comedians lean to the left.

However there are a few right guys Jeff Dunham, Greg Gutfeld, Nick DiPaolo, and Dennis Miller.

In a recent Top 10 article on Comedians of 2017 only one leaned to the right all the rest are left leaning.

Sorry, I really can't find ANYTHING to laugh about in our current state of affairs. I DO feel like crying occasionally.😢
