Sometimes you have a column all finished up and ready to go, and then you set it aside at the last minute and start over. Because there's suddenly something else you have to write about.

If political correctness is the act of respecting diversity, we need more political correctness. If the antidote to excessive political correctness is to mock the other in order to divide and to demagogue, as Gitz often does, the so-called cure is worse than the alleged sickness. We need not take ourselves too seriously, but only when everyone can laugh together is humor truly the best medicine.

Political correctness is being used as a cudgel to shut down any ideas that come from conservatives or libertarians like me.

mo, if you're bonked with a cudgel each of the numerous times you express your ideas, it's no wonder you're angry but it still hasn't shut you down.

Hitler had a stupid idea that whites are a superior race. Now, that stupid idea is back in vogue. Boltar has the right idea when he writes about people coming back together. Bishop Curry delivered a great sermon at the Royal Wedding on the power of love. We need more love and commonality and less Gitz, GeneralMac, and Mozarky.

"political correctness"....

#1.......That carrot cuff female professor at University of Missouri calling on " muscle" to remove a reporter covering the militant Blacks on campus.

#2..... the signatures of over 200 University of Missouri faculty on a letter supporting Ms Carrot Cuff and stating............" her right to freedom of speech allows her to crush others' freedom of speech "

Yesterday....MM on Dr Thomas Sowell

Political correctness and freedom of speech are not at odds. We can all say what we want, but we also must have reasonable expectations of consequences, pro and con. Only those who live in fear pretend they did not say what they actually did or whine about meanies who disagree nonviolently. For example, GenMac recently demonstrated this when he wrote an extraordinarily bigoted remark, had it deleted, and then pretended he hadn't written it at all. The truly courageous response is to say what one believes, accept the consequences without whining about reasonably anticipated and non-violent consequences, correct oneself when appropriate, learn, and move on.

BOLTAR..........I stand behind every word in that post YOU considered "bigoted" and cried to have it removed.

I have NEVER denied ANYTHING I posted.

Should I type slower for you?
Should I use more CAPS for YOU ?

BOLTAR says... May 21, 2018 at 10:52 a.m.

We know you are lying, but you merely prove my point. You had neither the courage of your convictions then nor the ability to learn from natural consequences now.
.
Also, you know I'm not the one who asked to have your post removed. You should know by now that your lie would be more effective if some elements were true.

PopMom.........I don't recall you writing about "love" and " coming together" when Barack HUSSEIN Obama was fanning the racial unrest flames during his 8 years.
