31 GENDERS – NEW YORK CITY 2016

I like to keep things simple.  There was a time, in the not too distant past, when girls were girls, boys were boys.  Girls had girl parts and boys had boy parts.  They grew up and women continued to have vaginas and men continued to have penises.  There were males and there were females.  Period. […]

ISIS – THE LEFT’S DOUBLE STANDARD OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

There’s a lot about the left in this country I just don’t get. One of the things the left insists upon, which I really don’t get, is the obsession with “political correctness.” You’re not allowed to say anything if it will offend, or potentially offend, any other human being. You can’t fly a flag on […]

THE BIAS-FREE LANGUAGE GUIDE-GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

I often wonder what type of person wakes up in the morning wondering, “What will offend me today?” Well, I found out this week. The Bias-Free Language Guide was written and edited by Sylvia Foster, Szu-Hui Lee, Joelle Ruby Ryan, Sean Moundas and the Women’s Commission members in the 1990s who drafted the “Guide to […]

Bacon is Now Offensive

This is a perfect example of how political correctness has run amok in this country.  One person is “offended” by something, so the rest of us – who are in the vast majority – have to cowtow to that one person.   We see it everyday in other situations where a small minority of people, such […]

IS THIS COUNTRY GOING NUTS OR WHAT?

I don’t know if we’re turning into a bunch of spineless, whiny, wussies or if we’re just going nuts.  This endless quest to be politically correct in all areas of our lives is just plain crazy. Take for example this pathological need to change how we normally speak.  The University of North Carolina will no […]

ARE OUR CHILDREN ACTUALLY LEARNING ANYTHING IN SCHOOL TODAY?

With all the political correctness, secular progressive propaganda and outright craziness going on in schools today, I wonder if kids are actually learning anything at all.  In my world, you went to school, learned a skill (as I did in my vocational high school), and got a job.  Higher education came much later for me.  […]

NCAA NATIVE AMERICAN MASCOT CONTROVERSY

By:  R. Neil Kline The world of intercollegiate athletics is an interesting stew to say the least. It is a mixture of money, a smattering of egocentricity, a dash of concern for the student athlete, a yet smaller dash of perceived concern for said student athlete’s actual academic progress towards a degree and then brought […]

ALASKA AIRLINES’ PRAYER CARDS – WHO’S OFFENDED?

Alaska Airlines is my favorite carrier.  They have great customer service, an extremely generous mileage plan and routes to the places I regularly travel. For the past 30 years, Alaska has handed out prayer cards with its meals.  They were simple cards quoting passages from Psalms printed over lovely photographs.  Since 2006, when the airline […]

TOLERANCE IS NOW A ONE-WAY STREET

Debate.  According to my dictionary, it means to deliberate, consider, to engage in argument by discussing opposing points, to engage in a formal discussion or argument. Bottom line.  There has to be opposing viewpoints in order to have a debate otherwise you have a one-sided conversation. Well, apparently, officials in the Shawano School District is […]

WHAT HOLIDAY ARE WE CELEBRATING?

I don’t know about you, but I get really tired of hearing about the lighting of “holiday” trees.  They’re Christmas trees.  There, I said it. I’d like to ask all those city/county/state/federal officials who can’t get themselves to say the word “Christmas” to explain to me what holiday is actually being celebrated with a decorated […]
