    General Kelley posed that question at his news conference. It is a bitter assessment of the reality of America today....people seem to have lost their sense of decency.

    The people are more divided at anytime since the Civil War and it is not getting any better. The bitterness is getting worse helped along by the media who will go to any lengths to demonize anyone that does not adhere to their agenda.

    Is there any hope that America will see where all this is going and try to restore respect for each other?

    Maybe after something REALLY bad happens. Americans have this odd politeness which has led to an inability to converse and disagree.

    Reading about the past gives me hope. The troubles of then help put the troubles of now in perspective. For example, if it makes you feel better the 101st Airborne isn't out making racists allow blacks into schools today because we can't trust the national guard.

    Maybe we are less bad off?

    Watch more cartoon network. America seems much more united if you stay away from the "news and information" programming.

    Sacredness leads to sanctimony, so let's hope not.

    You seem to be under some kind of delusion as in you infer that school integration was somehow a good thing.....you must not know any public school teachers, your kids must not have gone to public school and if you went to public school it must have been years ago before they completely disintegrated as learning institutions due mainly to the stupid policy of integration...even many Negroes now understand the fallacy of that...demanding black teachers,safe places aka segregation. Whas up wid dat boyo?

    "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
    Until this becomes true in our time, there will be little done. Something which certain elements in our society would rather were forgotten about, lest we follow in the "footsteps" of our founders, and cast off this Government, and establish a "new guard" for our future security.

    Ah, so you believe black kids should not be allowed in public schools? Don't be shy, say so like you are proud of your belief.

    I know a group of folks who don't want descendants of Germans allowed in school. Wanna back them also?

    When I was 9 years old and new to this city, I was bused for 45 minutes to a black school located on Martin Luther King drive...anyone who knows city life knows what to expect from a street named that...
