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.

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.
