Many cultures and traditions place lots of thrust on paying respect to their senior citizens. In some communities and societies, children are expected to listen, learn and give back to their elders.
However, everyone knows that respect is a two-way street and it has to be earned. According to national polls, Wahington DC lost all respect long ago and may have a long way to go to get back its Mojo.
Respect is a quality seriously lacking in today's society. So, what the hell does it mean when our elected leaders insist on being mean?
Take a look at the following polls and see for yourself. The following are just the tip of the eyes... etc.
