you can't say that!

Here's an example of tolerance as we practice it in the good ol' USA. I think one thing that really chaps my Cracker ass about the whole Political-Correctness movement is its utter lack of humor. Practicioners don't even notice the amusing irony in what they do: They are intolerant of anybody who isn't tolerant.

After the nine nursing students from Emporia State University were introduced to the House Health and Human Services Committee on Wednesday, Rep. Mike Kiegerl said, "Since they're here, they can resuscitate me."

Some fellow lawmakers and people in the audience cringed at the remark, and it angered the chairman, Rep. Jim Morrison, R-Colby.

Sweet Bejus! What's WRONG with Kiegerl? That remark was sexist, insensitive and cringe-inducing. It reeks of intolerance!

"He needs to be straightened out," Morrison said of Kiegerl. "That's an uncalled-for comment."

BWHAHAHAHAAA!!! How DARE Kiegerl say that? Gather the pitchforks and torches! We're gonna "straighten out" this insensitive prick and teach him a hard lesson about being tolerant. We'll pound some got-dam tolerant sensitivity into him, even if we have to kill him doing it. It's for his own fucking good!

You don't think that's funny? You know--- the idea of such tolerant people being so intolerant? The suggestion that some kind of thought police need to "straighten out" this guy? The kind of lynch-mob mentality that sensitive people display when they hear something they don't like?

The truth is, it AIN'T funny. It's downright frightening.


Yeah, frightening enough to make one think that the typical Donk yodel about "gun control" has an alterior motive, don't you think?

What is wrong with using a joke to admire the beauty of a young woman? (or women?)

Welcome to the United States of the Offended.

People need to lighten up in a big, big way.

United States of The Offended .... hahaha! I like that one, I'll need to remember that for future reference.

People are way too easily offended by anything anymore. It's gotten to the point where one cannot speak about anything anymore without offending someone. What the hell has this country become? God damn liberal monnbats is what's caused most of this hoo-haw...and that's what it all is...hoo-haw. Them, and the lawyers, and judges who hear these outlandish cases. Most of these cases that go to court should be thrown out so fast, as well as the "offended" person being fined for wasting the court system's valuable time and money. Will that ever happen? Nope.

I am offended you redneck cracker.

I'm going to go out and offend everyone I see today by wearing this shirt:

Shit, at least I'm honest.

Getting "straightened out" is part of being "resuscitated" according to my perverted thinking. Morrison needs to attend antisexist therapy himself. I would never say such a thing anywhere at any time.

The rage displayed by the idiots from the religion of peace is their demand that someone be P.C. Another dumb ass program started during the rein of the really dumb asses that occupied the White House in the 90's. The world will be paying with lives for their stupidity for a hundred years. PC is just another term for 'kiss ass'.

I was going to comment, then I read your comments and now I'm offended.

I used to think the people of my state (Kansas, for those who don't know their geography) were not nutcases like that. I am wrong. It even shames me more that the reprsentative who made the "straightened out" comment was from my neck of the woods. All I'm saying is that if this crazy ass thinking has reached KS then it's all over.

"United States of Offended"

Excellent, Ruith. Wish I woulda said that.

Shelley -
Sorry, but this crap is nothing new to Kansas. We have plenty of PC BS here in Wichita, and I've got 2 daughters in Lawrence being corrupted by the intellectual rot up there. Of course, if we Sack Sebelius(TM), things may improve a little.

"He needs to be straightened out," Morrison said of Kiegerl.

Why? He sounds straight as an arrow to me. Heh.

What's wrong with TOLERANCE. Why can't we have more of it? If we did, we wouldn't get our collective panties in a wad every time we heard, read or saw something that offended or upset us. And our print media is no better, sweeping everything under the rug, lest we see it and get upset about it.

But that's part of life in the free world. You are bound to hear something you don't like, see something that makes you sick or read something that upsets you. But you get over it. It's called being an adult.
