Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

Political correctness has gone mad!!!!!!!!!

Political correctness has gone mad, it’s worked its way into society and now it’s attacking our society from within. What’s the main reason for it all? Well I’ll tell you, there are only three real reasons for this totalitarian shift towards a dystopian state of depressing seriousness. First of all, the majority of PC rules and regulations are created by humourless sycophantic politicians, aiming to win votes by appeasing other pro-nanny state voters. These voters want everything to be regimented and strictly controlled to avoid mirth of any sort or kind. Secondly, Britain is getting older, it’s a fact that you can’t deny, and let’s face there is a huge majority of old people and most of them appear to be bitter, grumpy and have an instant dislike of young people, due to their rampant vitality (on a side note have you ever noticed how rude old people are? They queue for the bus like they are in a scrum, like it’s there god-given divine right to be first on). It is this demographic that councillors and politicians are attempting to target by passing ‘you can’t do this or say that’ laws.

In an effort to appease killjoys across the country the government is continuing to cracking down on fun. They don’t want you to have fun, they want you to work, pay your taxes, go home and stay off the street, and it’s as simple as that. The third reason is perhaps more valid, but no less insidious and damaging to our civil liberties and to the development of our culture. Tolerance, it’s all about tolerance. Rather than trying to teach our society to be more tolerant of others, the government is trying to enforce it through legislation. People should be tolerant of other beliefs and opinions, but as the wise creators of South Park understand, tolerance doesn’t mean you have to like something, it means that you just have to put up with it.

Sometimes you are encouraged about our country's future when you see something like this.

Specifically, there is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year's term was:

"Political Correctness."

The winner wrote:

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

(This guy has nailed it.)

But some people don't get it!!!!

Obama Don't get!!!!

Albert Einstein was a theoretical physicist, philosopher and author who is widely regarded as one of the most influential and best known scientists and intellectuals of all time. A German-Swiss Nobel laureate, he is often regarded as the father of modern physics. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". He get it!!!

New York is starting to get it!!!!!!!!

Do we get it yet!!!!

Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden He has gotten it it the past!!!!

A blind squirrel is more likely to find a nut if there are a lot of blind squirrels

That sounded cruel, let me rephrase that, a vision-impaired squirrel is more likely to find a nut if a lot of vision-imparied squirrels.

Political correctness. It has taken our workplace and turned it into a bunch if bobble headed agreeing cogs that call something junk when it’s junk ! How many times have you been in a meeting and people all agree with someone even thought outside the meeting they know perfectly well that the person who presented it is up to his chin in flowing mud.

One of my favorite TV shows of all time are the early episodes of Sanford & Son. Redd Foxx was excellent as a curmudgeon owner of a junk shop in East LA. On one episode Fred Sanford goes to help his son Lamont fight a parking ticket in court. As he questions the police officer the following exchange takes place:

Fred: Why don’t you arrest some white drivers ?

Police Officer: I do

Fred: Well where are they ? There’s enough niggers in here to make a Tarzan movie !

Upon which everyone in the court starts to break up and yell. Recently I saw a replay of that episode and they had edited out that seen. I mean give me a break !

Then there is the comedic genius of Richard Pryor. He often uses the “N” word when telling stories and his stories are pure fun and genius (Just listen to Mudbone). Now we can’t use the “N” word or other words for that matter because they offend ? Since when have we become so sensitive that we need to be protected from words ? Sure words when used with hate can stir a crowd to violence but we have to be stronger than allow any word to hurt us.

I hate the era of political correctness. It holds us back from what we really want to say and who we truly hare. Bring on the blind squirrels..natures speed bumps.

Political Correctness Going to Extremes September 9, 2010

Frankly, we don't blame the unidentified Microsoft Corp. employee who banned a West Virginia man from playing in online Xbox Live events managed by the company. The worker was just living up to what he thought society expects of him - political correctness to a fault.

He was at fault, obviously, in suspending 26-year-old Josh Moore's gaming privileges.

It seems Moore, in setting up his gaming profile, noted he lives in Fort Gay, W.Va. A Microsoft online gaming monitor decided that might be offensive to homosexuals. Never mind that Moore's hometown is Fort Gay (no one seems to know with certainty how it got the name).

It took Moore days to straighten out the mess. He talked to a customer service representative, who didn't even try to verify Moore's claim. Finally, a Microsoft executive found out. He promises to apologize.

"Gay" does not have to be a reference to homosexuals, of course. Lots of people have the name. Lots of places, including at least three in West Virginia, include the word in their names (Fort Gay in Wayne County, Gay in Jackson County and Mount Gay in Logan County). And the word's primary meaning is "joyous and lively."

But many Americans have become so sensitive to political correctness that their knee-jerk reaction is to assume some words and phrases should be offensive to others. Tolerating that attitude is both absurd and, possibly, dangerous.
