Walking in a Wally Wonderland wrote on Nov 17th, 2017 at 3:19pm:
I think we are experiencing something which is healthy for our society.  It transcends everything which divides us  and connects us to each other as human beings.   Those of us who are not women, all have women in our lives who we support and treasure. This behavior which abuses women is something we would not accept happening to our mothers or wives or sisters or daughters.  Why is it any different for women or girls who are strangers?

As with anything, though, the road to hell can be paved with good intentions.  Some women lie, cheat and steal; just like some men do.  Character is a matter of personal a growth and achievement.  Whenever mere allegations are accepted as true without proof, then it poison's the well.  Pretty soon no one will drink from that well.  Returning to the rule of law and avoiding mob rule based upon tabloid sensationalism and media driven frenzy,is the best course for ferreting out the truth.

It only becomes a witch hunt and McCarthyism if we allow ourselves to be convinced by solely by the nature of the allegations and not allow our courts (civil and criminal) to sort what's real and what is not.  As flawed as this system can be, it's better than a Witch Hunt and mob rule!  The next one accused could be you..or your son...or father... or anyone.


Echoing FC and Mojo, this IS a great post Wally.

In a way it reminds me of a meme on facebook I saw.  It was fantastic.  I'll probably butcher this but:

"Man to coworker: It's just locker room talk, there's no harm, what's the big deal?

Man to daughter:  All men are pigs.  All of them are after one thing and one thing only.  Yes, honey all of them."

I wish I could find it because it really was well played.

there are some things which seems to transcend politics.  we can all have our political differences and even have individuals whom when like, as well as those we dislike.  This issue seems to be one of those no brainers where we can find some common ground.

that which unites us as Americans and as human beings is far greater than those things which divide us and gives us indigestion.


OK...too sappy...that's over...back to the food fight!   Tongue

Oh yeah, there's probably a lot of nervous twitches going around.  "Oh crap, hope no one brings up that little indiscretion on my part 5 years ago."

Do we know if he's Democrat or Republican yet? If not, you must be having a hissy fit trying to figure out whether you should defend him or vilify him.
