The word I dislike is “Gossip”. I wish it was never entered in the dictionary. Whenever someone is about to go this path,I think there should be a huge ‘Red Flag ‘ waved instantly,or they have a cough attack.
Many innocent people are the target of this word.I don’t think it’s fair. It is always used in politics,let’s face it if one is not good enough to compete with his/her opponents why drag down the family or relatives.
I always watch the senate race Ads,one party trying to drag down the other to get votes from the public. They can try to show their positive side and let the public decide who is better. Will it ever happen,I doubt very much.We are humans after all , being fair is not one of our trait!
