Ya’ll quit!

Dang, I wish folks would quit fussing at one another. Seems like every time I turn the news on TV or pick up a newspaper somebody’s is hollering at somebody just because they don’t agree with whatever was said or done and then everybody gets all riled up. Just about everyday somebody is hollering at somebody or a bunch of somebodies just because they said something (or stood up for something) they don’t like. You’re just being an ornery neighbor. Quit.

Haven’t ya’ll ever heard of the Constitution of the United States and its Amendments? There is this one that’s called the First Amendment that allows anyone free speech and all that. Just because somebody does something (or says something) you don’t agree with, that doesn’t give you permission to get all ornery like that. There’s lots of folks over our 232 years as a country that have died just so you can talk freely. Here you all fussing at somebody because he doesn’t agree with whatever you are favoring. Shame on you.

You know, a long time ago there was this fellow name Paul. He did a hole bunch a writing and he was one of the smartest people I ever heard of. One time, he wrote a letter to some folks he really liked. He said that they ought to take care of each other and think about other folk as more important than themselves. He also said they ought to do their work quietly and keep out of business that isn’t there’s. I take that to mean name calling, and back biting and all that. They call that gossiping where I come from and it doesn’t do a lick of good for anybody.

There’s another thing I want to rant about and that’s what some folks call fake news. That’s a fancy way of saying somebody writing and deciding what gets put in the paper or on TV is lying. Lying is as bad as gossiping and a lot of times it is worse. If you are one of those doing all that fake news stuff, you ought be ashamed of yourself. Didn’t your Momma teach you better than that?

Ya’ll need to grow up an learn some manners. Nuff said.
