No, I did not read the entire article. Why? Because I could guess at my original response, and it wasn’t pretty (healthy for me).
But, I did calmly discuss my views of the ‘not mad enough’ regarding the oil spill with a couple of people.
So how mad IS mad enough?
Stomping to the podium?
Red in the face?
Neck veins bulging?
Arms failing in the air?
Fists clenched so hard fingernails are cutting into the palms?
Is getting ‘boiling mad’ going to take one single drop of oil out of the ocean?
Is being ‘infuriated’ going to bring an better solution, or any solution for that matter.
Is ‘throwing a fit’ going to make BP move more quickly?
Is being ‘furious’ at something in Outer Environment (OE) going to change anything in OE?
Is being ‘loud mouth and hostile’ going to solve the situation?
Is being ‘nasty’ going to prevent more oil from hitting the beaches?
Is displaying temper ‘required’ to show ‘how much’ a person cares about a topic?
Is displaying a ‘public tantrum’ going to make our President ‘more right’ and BP ‘more wrong’?
Is wildly aggressive ‘better’ than assertive? Not in my opinion. Never!
Maybe what President Obama IS demonstrating is how to be:
“At Ease & In Control”.
I applaud the man for that!
