I've never met anyone who's admitted they're offended by being wished a Merry Christmas. I'm not saying there are no such people, but I've never met one or even seen someone taking offence to this.

I have however, talked to and read the words of a great many people, talking about how you can't say this or that during the holidays because you'll offend someone and isn't it ridiculous.

In these discussions I always refer back to the Starbucks "red cup" fiasco of a few years ago. There was a tiny number (one?) of complaints, but it seemed half the western world jumped in on the backlash against that complaint, making it a much bigger deal than it actually was.
My fervent hope is that you and your tax dollars will be reunited in the afterlife.

This how they create social justice warriors...

Get a hold of children at a young age and indoctrinate them.

Portland School Teachers Given “Social Justice” Guides – Praising Islam, Che Guevara, Black Panthers

Teachers in Portland Public Schools are being given a teaching guide called “Planning to Change The World – A Plan Book For Social Justice Teachers.” At $18.00 a piece, with 3500 teachers, well, you can do the math to see how much money they’re spending just on this planning book.

Just sit back, relax and watch society implode on itself through this nonsense :up:

Just the thought that the barista complied with the complainee's "uncomfortableness" is a sure sign that our society is in serious peril.

Judge Biggby was actually quite compassionate and considerate toward the first nation relative to the average attitude at the time.

It's amazing that doctors even act as cheerleaders to be politically correct instead of actually helping solve serious problems.
