Is it just me or is the Government and the media very hypocritical on putting it out that kids need to quit being bullies, that we need anti-bullying laws in school and so forth. Facebook, Myspace (the few that still use it) are always being blamed when it comes to why bullying is spreading. Yet, I would like to point out that more and more kids are actually watching political figures and it is political figures (both liberals AND conservatives) who are bullying each other. Smear campaigns, slander in papers, on the radio, back and forth. If our people in Congress can't treat fellow co-workers with respect and are willing to put on such trash against each other in public, don't THEY have to own up to some of the responsibility of why kids are acting like bullies as well? When are we going to start demanding anti-bullying in Congress?
