We need to Make America Civil Again

OK, folks, here we go again. Everybody wants changes. And, we need changes. Have for years.

So, there will be discussions, debates, new rules, elections, etc., etc., etc. But, hey, there’s one thing we can all do (well, most of us) starting right now. And it’s cheap!

Somebody even put a name to it. It’s called the Golden Rule. It goes something like this. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

You want people to cut you some slack? Well, cut them some slack.

You want people to give you the benefit of the doubt? Well, give them the benefit of the doubt.

You want people to be considerate of your feelings? Well, be considerate of theirs.

MACA: Male America Civil Again.
