FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Rhetoric Kills

Saturday's shooting in Arizona is a prime example of the enormous decline in civility. Regardless of political affiliation, the message of hate must stop. Sadly the inability of politicians to campaign without negativity seems to have accelerated the last few years.

My earliest recollection of politics is the Goldwater vs. Kennedy race. I was in high school and emotions were high over the race. I have no recollection of even the most rabid supporters suggesting we wipe the opponents off the face of the earth. The despicable and vitriolic verbiage that surrounds today’s political races easily impacts those of fragile psychic.

Honest politicians (if that isn’t an oxymoron) must curb their campaign managers and supporters and insist on a return to civility. The democratic process can work without resorting to character assassination that often results in the inciting of actual assassination.
