    Y'all don't really care, outside the realm of political correctness.
    Please, regale us with examples of liberal politicians and pundits race-baiting against whites. And for every one you show us - with good references, now - I'll show you at least FIVE examples of conservative politicians and pundits race-baiting. Want to take me up on this challenge?

    You prove my point beautifully! Thank you!

    The point is, Libbos aren't opposed to people using racial slurs; they're opposed to people using some racial slurs and others are ok.

    Political correctness sucks ass...

    However, that's not what the Baldwin controversy is about. What it's about is how he used someone's sexual orientation as the basis of a slur.
    Again I will ask. Was the photographer he was yelling at gay?

    In other words, you don't want to take me up on the challenge. You know better than to even try.

    Your challenge is stupid and pointless.

    Ya see? You people will NEVER stop believing that it's whites against blacks. It's always about race with the Libbo.

    Most of the episodes are good. There's a couple of duds here or there, but it is usually excellent. Too short lived unfortunately.

    When I found out it was cancelled and wanted a replacement. I hadn't seen it yet, but I think Seinfeld has a podcast called Comedians Go For Coffee or something. It might be worth a catch as well.

    Joan Rivers unloads a string of slurs in a new video after being asked about the fallout over Alec Baldwin’s recent use of homophobic language.
    The comedian has no use for political correctness, and makes her case with some extremely sensitive terms.
    “Everybody, just relax,” says Rivers in response to the Baldwin situation.
    She goes on to say, “Everybody is either a wop, a n**ger, a k*ke, a ch*nk, a fairy, a mick… everybody’s something, so why don’t we all just calm down?”
    Rivers adds, “Be thankful that we’re all living in America, and stop everybody getting so damn uptight.”
    Do you think she has a point, or is she way off base?
    1. She's not even really making a point. On the surface she is, sure, but all she's really trying to do is get attention because she's a desperate old woman who feels her career slipping away to younger comedians. I actually find her quite sad because she was a "trailblazer" as people often point out and I think she could have spent the end of her career with much more self-respect, but she's chosen the road of cheap "jokes" aimed at getting controversy. Sad way for a legend to go out.

    2. As for whether political correctness has run amok and people are getting "so damn uptight"? I find those sorts of comments rather useless. The fact is that Joan Rivers and people who think like her aren't the arbiters of appropriate levels of "uptightness", sensitivity and "political correctness." And, even further, such dismissive comments about people's criticisms and complaints are usually just defensive reactions to being criticized and being forced to consider a perspective outside one's narcissistic mind.
