Noun: civility səˈvilitē
1. Shut up.
Personally? I like Obama's Lesson to Live By:
"“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."
Now that is - if one knows our history - civilized America.
You go, dude.
Don Surber on that same subject:
I do not want civil discourseBITE ME, indeed.
For a decade, from the election of Bush 43 forward, the Left has lied and cheated as it tried to return to power. Al Gore made a mockery out of the American electoral system by being a spoilsport over Florida, which Bush indeed won by 537 votes. Dan Rather forged a document to try to derail Bush’s re-election. Twice Democrats stole U.S. senators from the Republicans. After voting to support the war to get by the 2002 election, many Democrats quickly soured on the war. The profane protests were cheered by liberals who misattributed “dissent is the highest form of patriotism” to Thomas Jefferson; the words belong to the late historian Howard Zinn.
Once in power, liberals were the opposite of gracious.
For two years now, I have been called ignorant, racist, angry and violent by the left. The very foul-mouthed protesters of Bush dare to now label my words as “hate speech.”
Last week, the left quickly blamed the right for the national tragedy of a shooting spree by a madman who never watched Fox News, never listened to Rush Limbaugh and likely did not know who Sarah Palin is.
Fortunately, the American public rejected out of hand that idiotic notion that the right was responsible.
Rather than apologize, the left wants to change the tone of the political debate.
The left suddenly wants civil discourse.
Our country is now hell-in-a-hand basket. And it's all their fault. And they want to criticize me for the tone of my outrage? Here's my reaction:
It's the outrage, stupid.
And it ain't going away, no matter what Katie Couric or Diane Sawyer may think of me. Or what they - in their charmingly civil way - call me.
Bite me is as civil as it's going to get, babe.
