    I remember telling an old man that people 'now days' are baby crazy. And he said, it had been that way since he was young. I guess nature makes them so cute and adorable, so we'll love them unconditionally. But the poop, pee, vomit, food throwing and crying are not on my menu of fun...lol

    Ooops was that non-PC of me?
    I don't think it's at nauseating proportions. I think it has always existed at this level, but the specifics that are socially regulated may be disproportionate to sensible levels at any given time. Political correctness has been a central foundation in this country since the beginning, but what specifically we wish to clamp down on and promote changes with time.

    You seem pretty inflamed by the words in my op. That's why you are still here.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Your opinion is noted. I don't agree though.

    Then the specifics are disproportionate to being sensible. I've never seen people so afraid to say something slightly off color in public without getting railroaded.

    I suggest you need to look at some biases here.
    Comprehension deficit? The catchy name they chose turned out to be something repugnant to them. Take out that beam.



    Is it not usual to remove headgear (with or without tea-bags) while reciting the pledge?

    I find it rather hard to believe that a public personality one hundred, or even fifty, years ago would have had to make a public apology, and a full talk show "apology tour" simply for calling someone a bad name, or expressing an unpopular opinion.

    I can think of at least two incidents of exactly that happening this year alone.

    Tea Party didn't. Tea-bagger did. Different terms. Lots of people still call themselves Tea Partiers.
