    America is truly at an awkward period in that political correctness is ruling our culture now. Anything said can and sometimes is construed to be slander, racism, religious, anti-government, sexual and on and on. Good grief folks, what have we done to the greatest democracy on earth? Our own words are dragging us down. Seems like everyday, someone says something that someone else does not like and demands and apology, money or removed from their position. What happened to the 1st amendment? does it not guarantee a 'freedom of speech'?. So why all the political correctness? Everone should have freedom to speak, not be afraid of repercussions.



    Whatever happened to the late great America?

    You answered your own question. Just who decides what PC is? I say, say what you want. I usually do, gets me in trouble, but, so what!

    Four Roger that. In spades*.


















    *Not in reference to any sitting political figure, whether they are legitimate to the position or are simply, illegally, illegitimately occupying said office.

    Politically correct meaning of 'In spades':

    In abundance; very much, a whole bunch, a lot, .

    Origin

    It would be easy to assume the expression; 'in spades', derives from a truncated version of 'in spadefuls'. Or as a crude racial slur but that would be pure fantasy, as the spades referenced here refers to a suit of cards.

    Spades, the highest ranking suit in the game of Bridge; which was a popular pastime in the USA in the early 20th century,is where and when the phrase originated. So. . . thar ya go. . .

    Political correctness is the trump card in an argument where one side can not marshal facts to defend its' position. When confronted on that point all they can do is splutter and call names. 'Sticks and stones, come to mind. Personally, I don't care what these people say let alone what they think....make that parrot. Those people need to get a life.

    It's similar to the gang mentality. A lot of little people with little ideas overshadowing the majority rules thing. It's just unfortunate that politicians have figured out how to make it work for them too. I've been voting for 45 years. I'm ready to try something else. Let the revolution begin!
