    Civility Webinar:

    Imagine a work environment where all communications and interactions were conducted in a civil and respectful manner. Co-workers and customers would be treated respectfully on a consistent basis. There would be no place for harassment, discrimination, bullying, workplace violence, unethical actions, or other disrespectful and potentially illegal behaviors.

    I believe President Trump is the guest speaker!

    Re: Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax faces second sexual assault allegation

    I saw on the news this morning that the guy who was going to introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax isnít going forward with it.

    I would have a problem voting to impeach him unless the charges are proven or at least hearing from his accusers.

    Fairfax Accuser: I Was Raped by NBA Star Corey Maggette

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/fairfa...corey-maggette

    Meredith Watson—one of the two women who have accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault—says she was raped by former Duke University and NBA basketball star Corey Maggette. Watson alleges, through her attorney, that Maggette raped her during her sophomore year at Duke.

    To me, the grain of salt has become bigger.
    Should a career be ruined over an unproven allegation? I think not.

    Why were these questions not thrown out there when all the Hollywood allegations started coming out? Peopleís careers were over the second they were reported, and many of the claims have still not been proven. Why all the caution all of a sudden?

    I've been pretty consistent all along no matter the name or affiliation of the accused, as have most here.

    IIRC, there has always been two camps for the most part.

    Typically the loudest bullhorn is held by those with the biggest agenda.

    Seriously, I've given consideration to the exact same thought: It's awfully convenient that the three people ahead of a R are under fire right now - regardless of the merit of the charges (not to diminish the importance of same).

    This is the problem I have with some of the movements (metoo, anti-racism, and so on): There is a (sometimes reasonable) outrage that leads to demanding the destruction of careers over past mistakes and wrongs and at times with little to no evidence the accusations are true. Some are saying we should just believe the accuser without reservation/validate their story. Well, let's first consider the very definition of "validate" and that absent truth there is no worth to the story and that because of multiple reasons for people to lie, man or woman, credence cannot simply be given without consideration.

    What Republicans are doing is taking the very weaknesses in the social justice movements they criticize (again, sometimes rightly so) and weaponizing those very things against their opposition even as they insulate themselves against it. It is shrewd, ruthless, and brilliant from a political perspective; but it is also rude, insensitive, and has potential to backfire.

    But let's not pretend Democrats haven't done the same thing; faking concern (in some cases) while maximizing the political impact to R's whenever possible (not to say that is true of everyone, but I'm quite cynical for good reason).

    Meanwhile, when we could use opportunities to learn and grow and bridge divides we tend to drive that wedge further in and learn little to nothing other than "hide your past and your real thoughts" if you want to achieve/maintain success.


    Even my (I feel) rational discussion above would be reason for some to want bad things to happen to me. There has to be a better way.

    Whether it's the vehicle of religion, politics, or any other social platform that someone chooses. More times than not, the platform on which they are standing isn't the reason they are so passionately and relentlessly fighting. There is some personal gain they are actually pursuing. Follow the trail of potential money and/or power to be gained, and you'll exponentially increase your chances of finding the truth.

    Thought it would be obvious.

    One camp wants to immediate behead the accused....the other camp wants to wait until an investigation takes place.

    Bullhorn goes to both camps - depending on their agenda.

    there is some obvious stuff, but it is not the simplistic framework you are proposing

    You are right - and I agree.

    There's always the "in between" - I should have included that too.
