    After considerable information gathering and some ripping research we at American Age have decided to bring our knowledge, experience, and insight to the slipping of America's never-ending saga of lowering the bar of acceptable standards of conduct and decency. We believe that it's time for that proverbial 'line' to be drawn in the sand primarily with, but not limited to: Illegal Immigration, Sexual Orientation, (or whatever that is?) and Education.

Inappropriate or Appropriate?

Inappropriate or Appropriate?

If there is any one single issue that we have at American Age is the commitment to presenting information in an unbiased manner – so that you, the reader, — can critically think about the information and reflect with your thoughts prior to answering any given matter that requires thinking. 
Therefore, without any further adieu, we have a thorn in our flesh that we need your help on. As much as I enjoy watching the History Channel, True Blood, Dexter, and Fox News I have to admit that what I hear every morning vis-a-vie “After Rep. Joe Wilson called the president a liar…” The simple fact is that Rep. Wilson did no such thing.
If one were to go to YouTube or any other media outlet that shows this situation it is clear that Rep. Wilson states [in a loud disruptive voice] “you lie!” Call it splitting hairs, or plain old semantics, but saying ‘you lie’ is not the same as saying, ‘President Barack Obama, you are a liar.” Do you see my point? (Click here and watch!)
Not to be misunderstood, Wilson’s outburst was inappropriate. We are trained as professionals to keep those kind of comments for ‘closed door’ discussions. Furthermore, as one thinks of the House of Representatives there is a professional decorum that goes along with being in that room.
Who knows why insofar as the people in that ‘Chamber’ are some of the most unscrupulous, thieving, tax-cheating liars that ever roamed the planet Earth?
For all anyone knows Joe Wilson could have been speaking to a person next to him (hmm, did anyone think of that?) Moreover, some irresponsible female could have stated to him, “I’m pregnant and you’re the father…” I’m sure that would evoke the same kind of response.
So without anymore examples or fodder for Jack Cafferty over at CNN and his rush-non-critical thinking blog perhaps one should present a situation in totality before letting one’s biases run like crazy. (Continue reading.)
