Let's End the Arguing

Dear Source:
To quote my dear grandmother: "Enough is enough, and too much is nasty!"
I have listened to, and observed with interest, the initiatives, and subsequent results, of Act 6905. There have been hateful, divisive statements reported in the media, and attributed to everyone from community activists and generic residents, to elected officials, as a result of the passage of Act 6905 in the final days of the 26th Legislature.
While the intent of this letter is not to take a public stand on this legislation, I do intend to tell all that are diverting the attention of the public with their divisive manipulatives and unethical agendas to STOP THEIR NONSENSE! I don't care who the source of it is, it needs to come to an end.
All factions that want to be throwing a race card into the issue regarding Act 6905, and the subsequent initiatives, need to stop.
Elected officials, or members of the electorate, it does not matter. STOP IT! Stupid is stupid, ignorant is ignorant, wrong is wrong, and the last time I looked none had a color, creed, national origin or race attributed to them!
