Yep.....Zero tolerance here also.
I have actually been accused of having tourettes because I say what I am thinking without the filters that most people have.
The philosophy behind politeness has been so bastardized that we now ‘cannot’ disagree with someone out of dread fear of ‘offense’.
“Offense” is now a greater wrong than rape or murder. Isn’t it pathetic that 20 people shot in a Chicago weekend gets a couple mentions on the news at best, an American reporter was raped in public by a rabid gang in the “Arab Spring” that was covered up, leaked, then all but forgiven... yet “Offending” a muslim, minority or other protected group leads to 24/7 reporting and legal action?
I submit that it does NOT get more “pathetic” than that.
And it’s our collective fault as a people for allowing so called ‘good manners’ to rule us when assertion of fact and reality, AKA “Truth” is the most important thing of all..
Filter? What’s that? My wife walks away from me anytime a conversation on politics starts. She says I piss people off and she’s right.
Imagine simply telling the truth by pointing out verifiable facts pissing someone off. It happens in Liberalville all the time.
Oddly my mood and spirit soars in an inverse reaction to the aggravation and grief I cause my “friends” (Ok maybe it’s not so odd).
