The wisdom of Benjamin Franklin (part 4)

"Discussions should be conducted
          without fondness for dispute or desire for victory."
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Wish old Ben could be here now, so he could walk around the halls of Congress and whisper this piece of wisdom in every congressperson's ear.

It's foolish to think that the Democrats and the Republicans are going to put their differences aside.

I wish they would put their differences side-by-side, and then put a big red circle around the points on which they have some agreement, and then start working on actually voting to do something to boost our national economy and get people back to work.

Discussion.......information or ignorance?
