We have now become so politically divided that we even refuse to hear what the opposing view has to say. So many republican members of the NH House walked out on a speech against President's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord, that Speaker Jasper had to call them back in as they no longer had a quorum. ( Photo courtesy of Rep. Altshiller). Rep. Oxenham was also booed as she spoke out against the President's decision. The NH House has become a dialogue free zone with zero show of respect for opposing points of view or even their own NH House rules.
( Look closely and you will recognize Rep. Cordelli as part of the walkout. He continues to have no tolerance for opposing viewpoints. )
