And it gets better -
Some of the books that have been banned recently (or folks have tried desperately to do so) in the U.S. for God's Sake -
George Orwell's 1984
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
The Color Purple
Gone With the Wind
The Life and Times of Renoir
Some of the Little House on the Prairie books
My Friend Flicka
To Kill a Mockingbird (MY favorite)
And here's the topper, folks.
Robert Rowen, aged 49, of Boulder, Colorado, took his small child to the Boulder County Library. When they got inside, they were greeted by a 21 ceramic peni- display, which was there to honor Domestic Violence Awareness month. (?)
Right then and there, Robert packed up the peni-es, stashed them at home and attempted to put an American flag up in their place.
After a run in with the cops, over the "stolen property",the flag was taken down and the peni-es were reinstated. The reasoning, "If the kids don't like 'em, they don't have to look at 'em".
THAT is what I call Politically Correct.
Only in the People's Republic of Boulder.
The more we try and apease the Muslims to avoid offending them the more likely their grip on western society will tighten into a strangle hold. If they don't like what is being taught in the schools then they should take their back to the desert where they belong.
Here's two more articles in the same vein:
And who forced these people to move into non Islamic cultures, anyway?
Foreign people keep moving to this country expecting to be accommodated and we accommodate! Why?????????
I have a friend who is a nurse in the newborn section of a hospital. Due to the demand, this hospital now treats welfare cases almost exclusively. And the rules for the foreign families are, don't walk into a patient's room and attempt to speak English, even though my friend and her co workers often hear the patients and their families conversing in very under-
standable English. Nope, the doctors and nurses have to enter the room, go to the phone, put it on speaker and hook up with an interpreter. Now what do you suppose that costs?
Half of my new phone books are printed in Spanish.....
Something WRONG with this picture?????
On the lighter side, this is a tribute to Truman Capote's famous aunt who just passed away and who was never exactly shy about sharing her views on Political Correctness.
"...and we accommodate! Why?????????"
I will answer your question with 2 words:
They are selling our country out (well, it used to be ours).
It will only get worse.
Thanks for this. I will pass it on. Still laughing and will watch it again.On the lighter side, this is a tribute to Truman Capote's famous aunt who just passed away and who was never exactly shy about sharing her views on Political Correctness.

Who said you COULDN'T say Merry Christmas to people?
If you're privy to a televison or the web, which you are because you're here, you'd know that there was recently a lot of controversy regarding the splendors of saying "Merry Christmas" in public as not to offend anyone.
In fact many stores and other businesses refrained from just that as an act of performing their political correct goodwill I suppose.
"But the "keep the Christ in Christmas" contingent is particularly agitated this year over what its members see as a troubling trend on Main Street: Target stores banning Salvation Army bell ringers; UPS drivers complaining to a free-speech group that they have been told not to wish people a "Merry Christmas" (an accusation UPS denies as "silly on its face and just not true"); and major corporations barring religious music from cubicles and renaming the office Christmas bash the "end of the year" party."
The above paragraph is a quote from this article:
'Merry Christmas' - Or No Sale
In the meantime kids in school may not get to know what a travesty the holocaust was because it might offend some Muslim children in the same classroom.
Oh yeah, how about all those illegal's coming across the border??
Whoops, that's another thread!
All I ever saw with that whole Merry Christmas "controversy" was a business making a business decision. That's their right. Just because Bill O'Rielly says it's a war on Christmas doesn't make it true. They could say Merry Christmas or Happy Kwanza, I don't care. Point is, nobody told you that you could not say Merry Christmas.
