    I say political correctness is a very bad practice and it causes more problems than it "fixes". I believe the best policy is to call a spade a spade. It's truly defines it. It is well-understood by all and it cuts to the chase with no implied meanings. I challenge any of you to honestly say how political correctness has really been a help to the general population.

    where in the world do people think they have the right to
    gasp

    not be offended?

    Get a life and grow up. I am sick to death of political correctness.

    Political correctness is a method to instill group think and make people fear speaking out. It's one of the bigger soft threats to our liberty.

    I have a hard time keeping up with it..

    Is it African Americans or Blacks.. or something else

    Is it illegal aliens or undocumented workers or migrants or something else

    Is it terrorists or disgruntled Muslims or something else

    Is it white guy or honky, redneck, cracker, etc..

    The government could at least come up with a monthly list on the freedoms of speech they feel should be taken away..

    Dammit I'm confused...:confused:

    in terms of "names" for people or groups. Could they just make up their fucking minds what they want to be called and stick with it?

    I call a spade a spade. I try not to offend but I will talk about race with my black friends and refuse to censor myself. I once used the word "poor kids" to describe kids on a free lunch. I took a lot of heat for that. "Poor" is racist now according to the PC dictionary.
