Re: “Kenneth Neill's Take: "If the Shoe Fits, Throw It!"

Irreverent: disrespecting a man who represents an entire country. Esteemed: the highest held position in the U.S. government. Unpatriotic: supporting the childish actions of a foreign peon who disrespects the man who represents your country. You shouldn't worship the president, and he should be criticized for certain, but to make light of something so dishonorable is pitiful. And you want to talk dictatorship? I'd say socialist policies are definitely a step in that direction. And finally, Demise: we live in a time where people let radical ideals overshadow respect for others, both liberal and conservative alike; and we are going to keep spiraling down unless some people take the time to think and come back to reality. I can't imagine the greatest generation to ever live (the WWII generation) standing for something like this... let alone supporting and poking fun at it. Yet here we sit, a nation full of people with open hands demand respect before thinking twice about giving it first...

Re: “Kenneth Neill's Take: "If the Shoe Fits, Throw It!"

I don’t know if I’m more angry or appalled at this author’s blatant disrespect for the office of the President. Whether you like George W. Bush or not, condoning such an act of total irreverence to such an esteemed position is not only irresponsible but it is unpatriotic. I’m in no way a fan of Barak Obama, however, I can guarantee you if it were him dodging the size 10 I would still be outraged at the person who threw it. If you want to blame someone for this country’s problems, blame people like yourself who have forgotten what respecting others truly means, because that is in fact at the heart and soul of our nation's demise.
