First and foremost, it is most disrespectful and disgusting of President Obama, Mitch McConnell, and all Presidential candidates to discuss Justice Scalia’s replacement while the family is still grieving their loss. Instead of respectfully acknowledging his contributions, they are involved in a war of words of who should replace him. The media and in this case, both CNN and Fox News, are equally guilty of pandering the issue. His poor soul has hardly had time to rest in peace.
In many ways this is an indication of how selfish and self-centred the American psyche has become. There is simply no respect for the sanctity and dignity of human life whatsoever. One just cannot help but get the feeling that human life has become cheaper and irrelevant especially due to our egotistical pursuit of worldly partisan agendas.
Shame on any decadent society with such extreme immoral and disrespectful values.
