Re: What are you? PC?

Hey Cap'n. I read today that Borat's movie is being released on DVD out here this week. Would you like me to send you a copy to use as a training manual in political correctness? I also read that there are something like 6 lawsuits already being brought against the film. He's really popular over there in the US, eh?

Oh Doc, I don't need a training manual, I voted no I don't care! I'm about as PC as Archie Bunker.

The only PC I know is my Dell. Archie Bunker would never have made it on TV nowadays as a new show.

I'm thinking of a Commodore 64 or a Timex Sinclair 100 with a 9 pin printer and a dialup external modem.

You know what? I am offended by people who are PC. How's that?

Re: What are you? PC?

There is a difference between being polite and political correctness that sometimes gets lost when the pendulum swings from 'touchy-feely all warm inside to everyone' to 'f&%# everyone, I'll say what I please, screw whoever is listening'.

It certainly seems that you can't say anything anymore without someone taking offense, but you also don't have to offend everyone just because you have something to say. Bluntness has it's place, but not in diplomacy, public speaking, or relationships (NEVER, NEVER answer the question about how fat the jeans make her look... any answer is wrong! )
