The political correctness that has a grip on our society sickens me to say the least. My son recently tested for and passed (with flying colors) the NYS guide's exam and will become a licensed and registered NYS stream fishing guide by mid-August. He also hand ties custom jigs that he uses very effectively on the streams and rivers in our region and began selling them online.


Here's the kicker... he submitted a name for his business to the NYS registry for an LLC company to sell his hand tied jigs over a much broader spectrum. Because the word JIGS was part of his company title and found to be offensive, he was initially rejected pending further investigation. He was later granted the name for his little business because they probably realized that they would have to pull any/all products from retail shelves that contained the offensive word... JIG.

Remember... VOTE HILLARY if you would like to keep this trend alive.

Sad, but totally believable BPS. Ignorance and stupidity abounds. It reminds me of the incident a few years back when the mayor of D.C. fired a white aid because some city employees were offended that the aide used the word "niggardly" in describing how he would have to manage a fund's tight budget. Even the mayor had no idea what the word meant.

Niggardly is not a comon word for the average Joe's vocabulary. In today's liberal minded PC ideology; I could see their ignorance of jumping to a racist conclusion. Just my opinion on the matter.

The ridiculous treatment our Law Enforcement Officers receive nationwide is another thing that makes my blood boil...

You need to move down South MD. We're "backwards" that way.

Sad to say it, and my wife will whole heartedly agree with me here, I had to teach her how to cook! And her Grandma AND her mom taught her SOME! Unfortunately, I've had her moms cooking. Note the beginning word in that sentence Sadly her grandma had passed the year before we met. From all I've heard about her, I would have loved her to death! And semi, they are from the south!!! Sorry, no way I could marry me a Yankee!!! Not all southern girls can cook. It aint like it used to be unfortunately.

Yea...I'm sure you think us yanks don't know what home cooking is. All we eat is pizza and subs right? And what the heck does any of this have to do with a thread about all the political correctness crap we get force fed???
