What's the Deal with all the Rudeness in this Country?
First you got your "you lie" guy, Joe Wilson. Then Serena Williams f%$#@*& explosion at the US Open. Where's that nice girl we all came to love? Followed by Kanye West spoiling Taylor Swift's moment in the limelight by saying Beyonce should have won. Opinions are like @$$holes, we all got one. Beyonce is very talented but for him to screw up Taylor Swift's golden moment was wrong.
I think all these people know they acted less than courteously and sensibly. It is embarrassing to be caught on camera. I sure hate it when that happens. They don't need me to come and "bitch slap" some sense into them. Then I would be down to their levels.
America take a deep breath. We don't need to castrate these individuals publicly anymore. Morons, they are, but it isn't like they killed anybody. It was a momentary lapse in good judgement, like who hasn't done that? Get over it. Mouthing off is rude; going on and on about it is even ruder. Let it die.
They all admit they were wrong. In fact, poor Joe Wilson is the one revealed to be the liar with his remark. That's got to be embarrasing. Serena, you win all the time anyway, would it have hurt to accept a loss graciously? One of the greatest sports figures in the world is revealed to be a poor sport. Come on, you can do better than that? And Kanye, was it worth hurting one individual to call more attention to yourself than to any injustice you believe might have occurred? An important lesson was learned here. Apologize to the offended. Move on, and let's all forget it.
In days with two wars going on, Americans dying due to a lack of insurance, and unemployment dogging us like a hound on a fox hunt, is being rude that big an issue? Granted it is a breach of ettiquette, but it is rude to continue to harp on this subject. Maybe we want to worry about something minor when all this big stuff hangs precariously over out head like a guillotine. I do like thinking about someone getting angry, instead of war, death, and no money. Maybe that is the psychology of the situation. It was something that could, should be controlled. We can act superior. Who doesn't love that?
These people are all sorry. Let's all forgive them and worry about the important issues of the day. It was fun to pretend that rudeness was front page newsworthy with all the other shit coming down. Thank you all for the lovely diversion.
