Can’t We Agree To Disagree?

April 13, 2014

I confess, dear readers, that I’m suffering from an identity crisis. One day I think I must be a fascist toady of big business whose fondest wish is to make the poor poorer....

This paper surely must be an elaborate ongoing experiment from The Onion.

Thank you for a much appreciated viewpoint re: agreeing to disagree. I frequently disagree with the editorial position of the WI, particularly when it fails to do its homework in reporting facts. There are several posters to the discussion forums that also disagree with me, and have excellent points for discussion and consideration. Unfortunately, to some these forums are little more than verbal mud wrestling. They are not interested so much in exchanging viewpoints as in slinging insults. They are the same who write their views of life on the walls of public restrooms.

O.K., Mike. Did you really type this with a straight face? My advice is to take a look in the mirror, review your diatribes on the President and the Democrats (who, in your mind, can do no right), and then re-read your commentary. Your piece is a page taken right out of Fux News playbook. Slant the truth, give us half of the facts, and the tell us you are "fair and balanced." Look at the columnists you choose for your readers to read and then tell us that you should be given a pass. Balance out the NR/Intel a little and maybe we can take you seriously. Until then, not so much. Nice try though. Unfortunately, some (or most) will swallow your plea, hook, line, and sinker.

But here's the thing: We're in another one of those periods in the United States in which too many folks have the attitude that you're either for me or against me. Most politicians always have thought that way.

He hasn't been keeping track on the U.S congress the past six years.They dont(most) vote on how they believe but what the leader says.

WVUGEO "Some issues are inviolable, sacrosanct - or should be."

GEO, give us a hand here and list those "sacrosanct" issues. I'm sure you have a long list, so multiple 1000-character posts are ok. LOL

Some issues are inviolable, sacrosanct - or should be. And, sometimes, silence on some issues is itself a lie. In some situations, even seemingly complex ones, there is right and there is wrong. Period. Sometimes, apologias like this just don't cut it.

You've missed your calling. You should be a stand up comedian. They very fact that you've written "we journalists" in this piece is laughable, but with so many pet birds dying in the Valley, your paper has lost 90% of it's usefulness.

I agree with you 100%. We need to agree to disagree on any issue without tearing someones head off. There seems to be a greater need to be right all the time today. A good healthy debate can enlighten us to see things that we may not know or have not thought of. If supposedly reasonable adults can not agree to disagree without such bad behavior, what kind of example are we setting for our youth, and is it any wonder that there are so many problems, many leading to unnecessary violence.
