Why is it that if you are a Democrat or Republican, or a member of any other political party people expect you to agree on all issues of your said party. I like to call myself an independent--sometimes, the majority of the time, I usually take a democratic stance, however of late I've been taking a more conservative approach.
Just because you might like President Obama does not mean you have to agree with President Obama on all terms.
The recent San Bernardino shootings are a prime example. These were Islam extremists, however the White House does not want us to use that word.
I understand being politically correct and trying not to offend anybody, however it's gotten to a point lately where many people are afraid to voice their true feelings because of the political correctness that has taken shape in America.
Although many are upset with Donald Trump and his high rankings in the presidential polls, one needs to realize why this is happening. This is happening because people are sick and tired of politics as is and what was.
How much worse would it be if a non politician like Trump became president?
The United States is not a dictatorship, even if Donald Trump became president laws need to be approved through Congress.
It's strange these days, depending on what I post on Facebook any given day-- I can lose 10 to 15 friends because they don't agree with me. Actually I have too many friends (over 1600)on Facebook and the best way to weed that list down is to express your political agenda.
Our country has become too sensitive on every little matter. You can no longer call someone 'mentally retarded,' they are now mentally challenged. You can no longer call a homosexual a homosexual,they are now gay.
No longer can you call a stewardess a stewardess--they are now flight attendants. Salesmen have become account executives. Janitors are custodial engineers, and people who cut your lawn and pull weeds are called landscape artists. Are black people, black people, or Afro-Americans?
When did sleeping with someone turn into meaning making love? When I was a kid when you slept with someone it was exactly that. God forbid you compliment a female co-worker and tell her she looks awesome, this can now be interpreted as sexual harassment.
It's not nice to say shut up, but please be quiet is OK. I held back giving more examples since I am trying hard to not offend anyone. Good luck to me on that!
|If only there were|
more situations like this...
Finally, Are members of the Islamic State "Islamic" extremists? Or are they, as President Obama calls them, "violent extremists"?
Remember words are powerful and should be measured carefully, however enough is enough!
Merry Christmas, oh wait, Happy Holidays!
Check this out!~Trump is just like Hitler. Or Jimmy Carter.Interesting... Well?
During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency.
