Political Correctness

Another new word has made it to the top of the "Political Correctness" list. Now "retarded" has join forces with such words as: nigger, fairy, fat, midget, secretary,ugly, white trash, cracker, dyke/dike, garbage man, bum, Merry Christmas and many others. Earlier this week it was Rahm Emanuel that spoke that forbidden word, "retarded" and he is now joined by the Rick Perry campaign's chief consultant who also dared to utter that unspeakable word, "retarded". If this wasn't so serious it would be funny, in fact laughable. The really sad part is that those who utter these words are forced to apologize and recant. This is madness, sheer madness. What ever happened to freedom of speech? This political correctness is slowly chipping away at our freedom of speech one word at a time. Next time someone tells you, "you shouldn't use that word", just tell them to "Get Lost"!

Now just in case you are in to political correctness here are a few words and pharses you should not use along with the correct ones:

Broken Home-Dysfunctional Family
Bum-Homeless Person
Fat-Enlarged Physical condition
Garbage Man-Sanitation Engineer
Housewife-Domestic Engineer
Midget-Vertically Challenged
SecretaryAdministrative Assistant
Ugly-Visually Challenging
White Trash-White Loser
Merry Christmas-Happy Holidays
Cracker-White Southerner
There are many, many more that can be added to this rapidly growing list of forbidden words. Want to add some more!
