Idealistically, I believe less judgement and more compassion for our fellow man would create less hostility, suspicion and a society more conducive to lending a hand to the large numbers of those suffering today. With one out of every four families at or below poverty level, as Newt Gingrich advised "take a bath and get a job" is a harsh criticism of those unemployed due to our current economy. It exemplifies the hostility that exists today between the classes. It serves no helpful, realistic purpose other than to demean those who lost their jobs through no fault of their own. The parents of children who are going to school malnourished and living in cramped "by the week" motels or vehicles are not lazy, but suffering physically and emotionally by not being able to sufficiently provide for their families. It is not their choice, but the unfortunate circumstances of many lives now.
