Fist Fights & Democracy
by Mary Hemli
March 31, 2005
Wednesday on the news they showed the Russian parliament in fist
fights. News casters on different stations made derogatory statements
about the men. I hope the people of this country don't really
believe that our start at democracy didn't have fights. Our founding
fathers were not on the top of the register. Many of them came
here cause there was trouble in the fatherland and they got sent
here to get out of trouble. Many of them were considered scoundrels.
I wish that this country would encourage these people to keep
working for the process and not teach our kids that we didn't
have these things happening here.Our people were still having
duels and men got shot.
These other countries are just
starting and we can't expect them do have it down pat right off
the bat. Our parliament is still stabbing each other in the back,
lying, cheating and doing not so nice things and it has been
200 years. We might be all better off if they just went to fist-a-cuffs
once in a while.
