1. The President of the United States calling senators’ actions “crazy”. I don’t believe that anyone who is older than twenty ever thought they’d see the day when the President would use such language, but it’s become so commonplace over the past six years that we’ve grown used to it. It’s a shame. And the type of rhetoric he uses has degraded our civility towards each other. It would be easy to say, “Well, they were first”, or “They deserve it”, but the President is supposed to be the calming, unifying figure of the country. This one chose to demean, vilify and ridicule anyone who disagreed with him front he outset of his term, and from that time we have been going steadily down hill. Everyone hates everyone else, there is no tolerance for any different points of view and, in general, we are becoming the western version of Shiites and Sunnis.
