Pa Christian and his oldest child, my Mother. Both taught me about manners and how to treat others.
So with a "HOORAH", I see that others believe as I do that it is not "Racism in America" but just down right "BAD MANNERS".
Joe Wilson shout out "You lie." at our President , along with Serena William's profanity and threat to a Judge and now Rapper Kanye West grabs the microphone from country singer Taylor Swift. Yep, all of these were "BAD MANNERS" TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE.
I nodded my head in agreement as I felt vindicated when I read, "Is civility dead in America? by Marco R. Della Cava (U.S. Today) and I shook my head in disagreement when I read Rick Horowitz's "Wilson takes the discussion down a notch." He makes the statements "It's never easy to return to school rules-jacket and tie and a civil tongue-after weeks of summer vacation. Even congressmen need time to readjust." HA, THAT IS BUNK. Then his true objective is revealed licensed gun owners. Hey, he is talking about me and lots of others who I know have better manners than those mentioned above . He ends up saying "It'll be much easier the next time."WHAT? I guess he does not believe in learning from our mistakes.
I hope Congress does not accept this behavior and that it will be less likely to happen again.
Oh, did anyone see Jay Leno last evening when he asked Kanye how his Mother would react. At least he hung his head and wiped his tears.
Now if we are all honest, we too have suffered from some bad manners but hopefully not so public. May we and the country learn from them.(HOW NOT TO ACT.)
If nothing else, just like my Mother and Pa taught me, I hope Puppy remembers what I always told him "Don't leave your manners at home."
The kitty justice is to "MIND YOUR MANNERS." HOOAHH

Love the post....it all comes down to respect. I believe in treating people the way I want to be treated.

[I do plan on doing some Christmas magnets and aprons. I haven't done any with bibs but they will be half aprons.]

Have a wonderful day lady!!

Lady Di,

There is absolutely no reason in the world for bad manners. We have all slipped at one time but the things you posted about were uncalled for. Yeap, we were raised to take our manners with us wherever we went.

Hope you're having a great week.

Amen, Lady Di!!!!

We were brought up on healthy doses of Emily Post and Miss Manners and anything besides Good Manners was just not tolerated. MB

From the comments from all corners, east, north, west and south we agree about "Good Manners"
Maybe everyone especially those in public should take a refresher course.
