RE: [Histonet] Democracy

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine (CDC/CCID/NCZVED)"

We probably should not judge how we feel about being American based on
any Administration.  (I had grave issues with the prior Administration!)
I have never been ashamed to call myself American even when my President
was perjuring himself. 

I am proud to be an American always.

Oops. Now I am off my soap box..............

Can't we just all play nice once in a while, instead of flying off the
handle for one comment? OK, 2 or 3 would be a problem, but I am getting
a bit tired of the vocal minority, on opposite ends of the spectrum. I
think a part of the Democracy thing is that we should respect the idea
of respect in freedom of speech. Sure people say all kinds of things,
but we don't need to instantly attack them. We need to be respectful of
others ideas and actions (as long as they aren't hurting anyone of
course) even if we don't agree with them. They have their lives and let
them live the way that makes them happy. (gee - pursuit of happiness...)
I agree about the democratic liberties being taken for granted. I have
visited over 15 countries in my youth and lived in Saudi Arabia for 4
years. I DO NOT take America for granted. I am even ashamed to call
myself American on occasion (current administration comes to mind), but
I am always grateful to have been born American to have the
opportunities and quality of life I have. Opps, sorry I'll get off the
soapbox now.


Go hang out in a Non-Democratic society for a few months then come back
and tell us how you have never experienced it here in your homeland. You
are clearly a product of a democratic nation; you take your liberties
for granted so that you don't even know when you have them. If we don't
like it we have the right to protest, to take action and change it!
That's democracy.
