Default Political Correctness Gone Mad!!

True news storey today.

A grade one student in an eastern Ontario (Canada) city brought a copy of her spelling test home to her mother. The mother, claiming to be a pacifist, was horrified to fine the word "gun" on her child's test and complained to the school board demanding the word "gun" be removed from the grade one spelling test. The school board complied and has removed the word "gun" from the spelling test. Can you believe it?

Shot gun, hand gun, long gun, staple gun, caulking gun, glue gun, grease gun, paint gun, nail gun, gun the motor, there's probably more I can't think of off hand.

One person on a local radio call in show suggested replacing the word "gun" with "dispenser". Bullet dispenser, staple dispenser, caulking dispenser....well you get the idea.

"Political correctness is a sharp stake wielded by the left to destroy free speech, eliminate diverse opinions, kill open discussions and destroy America. It is a debilitating illness used as an anti cultural, linguistic, genetic and historic cudgel by socialists to control the pathetic unthinking sycophants, cowards, leeches and easily manipulated who follow their leadership. Political correctness is not a method to enhance moderation, politeness and logic in disputes, but a technique to stop debate and kill the possibility of further thought."

Amen.

I didn't write it - just a cut and paste - but I've got a feeling the author won't mind. (and I don't particularily care if he does)

It appears to me that the political correctness thing has engulfed our country. Here in Alabama, the debate about the Ten Commandments at the foot of the state senate rages on. We don' t want to offend any atheists do we? Yet our laws are founded on Christian principals. OOPS! I' m getting off on a tangent. Fact is I think our country has enough concerns right now not to have to worry about eliminating the word gun from a spelling list. Besides, the anti-gun children will have to be able to spell what they' re fighting against.
