    I Dislike Anti-politically-correctness Too

    I dislike both, because that's really not what life is about. It's not about being as glossy, non-commital and avoiding opinions or somehow "offending" someone.   But it's equally not about being intolorant of differences and running over other people's beliefs and...

    It's Highly Destructive

    So often the opposite to actual correctness.  Political Correctness is highly destructive to our freedom, within society.  Freedom to speak, and act on behalf of what we believe to be right. Political correctness... in reality, is very wrong.

    People who claim to have morals

    but are afraid to speak up against evil when they see evil right in front of their eyes are just plain cowards. Those that let the politically correct speech nazis intimidate them are soulless. There comes a time and point in everybody's life where one must take a stand. To...

    Hate It Actually

    It's killing this Country. People are afraid of every thing these days. People have to couch there sentences, words and deeds so as not to insult some censor or any other person on the face of the planet. Get over it! Get a life! We are adults if we cannot talk to each other...

    I'm not advocating hurtful name calling.

    But we have gone too far in our efforts to make every single thing inoffensive.

    The Fear Of What Others Think Of You

    POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is just another form of Hippocracy. Just the practice of saying and doing what you think others will like. Worrying more about image than what's right or wrong. It is used far too much to replace "common sense". American is two-faced and it is shown for...
