    Question: What does human resources have in common with the U.S. presidential campaign? How about taxes, foreign trade, labor relations, minimum wage, rights for women, immigration, wage stagnation, education, health care, religion ... Every one of them is a core HR issue. Your employee's core beliefs track those of the candidates who have been shouting, lying and name-calling for months. Being “politically correct” may not sound great but it’s a survival skill that could keep your company productive and keep you out of court. That's why we have updated our popular 75-minute "Being Politically Correct at Work" training course with...

    A black woman identified as a San Francisco State University employee accuses a white student wearing dreadlocks of "cultural appropriation" in a new video. *** SFGate contacted San Francisco State for a comment regarding the authenticity of the video, but has not received a reply. In the video, the woman accosts the student in a hallway of a campus building. "You're saying I can't have a hairstyle because of your culture? Why?" asks the incredulous student. "Because it's my culture," the woman says. The man informs her that dreadlocks we're "in Egyptian culture" and asks rhetorically "Are you Egyptian? Nah,...

    Political correctness is a contradiction of reality and distortion of morality that necessitates relentless government intervention devised by those who seek to control our lives. These self-appointed "Speech Sheriffs" warn us that words spoken outside the imaginary perimeters they've set are judgmental, negative, racist or intolerant. The goal of these elitists is to subtly subvert society by controlling speech. When speech is controlled, it's easy to control behavior. PC has infiltrated and corrupted just about every facet of our lives, including businesses, the news media, sports, churches, the military and universities.

    It happened without a Summer of Love, without Timothy Leary, without a groovy anthem or a shaggy new national look. In the past decade or so, there’s been a silent revolution in American culture, one at least as profound as the ’60s upheavals. We’ve hardly taken notice of it, because it happened in people’s minds instead of in the streets, happened in ordinary people instead of in the elites and the punditocracy. Compared to just a few years ago, we have a completely different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. As Caitlyn Jenner puts it in her new...

    Education reformers often cite reducing suspensions in our nation's schools as a top priority. Lots of recent studies show that this form of punishment does more harm than good. They might do well to read some of those studies over at ESPN's Bristol campus, where the lords of discipline are now handing out suspensions at a rate that would make even an old school junior high principal wobble. Pundits tasked with discussing controversial topics on cue—and, above all, inspiring a reaction—are now worried not just about doing their jobs, but about not saying the wrong thing, even if no one...

    When is the Correct Time to Burn Fallen Trees? Has the forest benefitted from government interference with Mother Nature? When the government does not allow the forest to burn off naturally the result is uncontrollable fires in the future. I think they may be a correlation between all misguided government endeavors and the outcomes. The government interferes with the natural order of the economy and the economy remains broken. The government interferes with the world’s absolutely finest most advanced health care delivery system and chaos results. The government attempts to correct poverty results in more poverty.

    (Judicial Watch) — In this new era of political correctness, the U.S. Army has published a special handbook for soldiers that appears to justify Islamic jihad by describing it as the “communal military defense of Islam and Muslims when they are threatened or under attack.” Because radical Muslim groups consider Islam to be perpetually under moral, spiritual, economic, political and military attack by the “secular west” they consider military jihad a “constant necessity” and use it as a “rallying cry to resist and attack all this is un-Islamic,” according to the new Army manual. The handbook was created to help...

    Brian Young had big plans for his church's IT strategy. But his vision suffered a serious setback this summer after Google Inc. altered its nonprofit program to prohibit all churches and religious organizations from participating. For years, the search and software giant individually offered some of its products—including its office software and popular Gmail—for free or discounted use to qualifying nonprofits. Eligibility requirements varied by product, but churches and faith-based groups were welcome to use some. All of that changed in mid-March when the company launched "Google for Nonprofits." The new initiative united a robust set of Google's tools into...

    TORONTO - Seventeen alleged Islamic terrorists were arrested in Canada recently, leaving approximately 50 more terrorist cells to go, according to federal spy agency sources. But even with authorities acknowledging that more arrests are inevitable, there’s one thing that could hinder further takedowns: political correctness. Since the terror busts, some Canadian journalists have been busy spitballing accusations of ethnic insensitivity at each other from the nation’s editorial pages. Obviously, they’d rather be picking the lint out of each other’s navels than worrying about the folks who want to kill us. Meanwhile, the political climate here is so charged that politicians,...

The Lower Burrell school superintendent said consuming and passing out the gum violates the school's drug awareness policy. That's because caffeine is considered a stimulant. Parents told Channel 11 they did not understand the suspension. Resident Elizabeth Grombacher said, "I think it's stupid. Everything's getting too politically correct it's so wrong."

    HELENA Representative Denny Rehberg has introduced legislation that would exclude illegal immigrants from the population counts that determine the number of U-S House seats each state receives. Rehberg says counting illegal immigrants as part of the population skews Congressional representation. His bill is the House companion to similar legislation introduced in the Senate earlier this month by Senator Conrad Burns. Rehberg says Montana is the largest congressional district in the country, based on population, with 940-thousand residents. The average House district has 650-thousand residents. The bill, if passed, would shift House seats from growing border states to smaller states with...

In this era of hyper-sensitivity and political-correctness, words no longer have meaning. Those who are good are too often portrayed as evil; indefensibly wicked acts are made less so by the way they are described. Words like "hero" and "hatred" have lost definition.

    As is often the case these days, offensive language or behavior is defined in the eye of the beholder. It depends on whether one subscribes to old school or new age definitions of words that have been around for centuries. This word discrimination used to be a compliment of sorts, as in "one has discriminating tastes" based on the old school definition "To make a clear distinction; distinguish: discriminate among the options available. To make sensible decisions; judge wisely." Of course the new age definition is much less flattering, "to treat one person or group worse than others or better...

    Welcome to 2005, `Year of the Big Revisionist’. The Ides of March, 2005 was the first day consumers could purchase one of the world’s most widely read Bibles, the New International Version–fully "revised". Archaic language in the Holy Book must have been getting to the tragically hip. So much so that a team of 15 American and British scholars were sent to parse and modernize it. Would it be too politically correct to say what the scholars really did? They watered the offensive Bible down and whitewashed its words under the time-wasting guise of only wanting to modernize it.

Despite the fact that the show had featured non ethnic bad guys as well as those from other ethnic groups in the past, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) accused the Fox Network of stereotyping Muslims and helping to escalate Islamophobia throughout the United States. After a meeting last month between CAIR and Fox execs, the network agreed to read a disclaimer before the offending show was aired. The following was read at the beginning of the program:...

    Editor's note: Readers may also be interested in New Jersey: An Islamic Murder of Coptic Christians?.Anyone following the investigation into the mid-January slaughter of the Armanious family (husband, wife, two young daughters), Copts living in Jersey City, N.J., knows who the presumptive suspects are: Islamists furious at a Christian Egyptian immigrant who dares engage in Internet polemics against Islam and who attempts to convert Muslims to Christianity.The authorities, however, have blinded themselves to the extensive circumstantial evidence, insisting that "no facts at this point" substantiate a religious motive for the murders.Somehow, the prosecutor missed that all four members of this...

    Chris Rock Hip-Hops Into Oscar Gig Thu Jan 27, 9:45 PM ET By BETH HARRIS, Associated Press Writer BURBANK, Calif. - Chris Rock's eyes darted around the room, studying the chattering group of international print journalists. He licked his lips, clasped his hands ... and only dropped one F-bomb as they questioned him in a variety of accents. "I'm never proper or careful, but I never curse in front of my mother, either," Rock told the writers. So he's not worried about getting bleeped on worldwide TV when he hosts the Feb. 27 Oscar ceremony. "I don't think people are...

    In April 2004, followers of Iraqi Shi‘ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr launched a well-coordinated uprising across southern Iraq. While Western media focused on events in Sadr City, Najaf, and Karbala, violence occurred elsewhere as well. A Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) source forwarded the following after-action report regarding violence in the town of Al-Kut, the capital of the Wassit governorate and home to the Ukrainian contingent.The unclassified report, written by a coalition security contractor, highlights dysfunction between regional coalition offices and the Coalition Provisional Authority headquarters in Baghdad, as well as tension between diplomats and security officers. The summary faulted a British...
  • Happy New Year…is that politically correct?

    Ah, another season of madness has passed. Our belts have been loosened- as our girth spreads and flops over our pants. The garbage can is full of politically correct wrapping paper and boxes. Bright colored ribbons bounce over the edges of our garbage cans- as the refuge containers line our neighborhood curbs- awaiting their garbage day pick-up. The refrigerators are filled with leftovers and our ovens are in desperate need of cleaning. Our closets and garages hold the over abundance of unneeded wants and desires. Smartly, we’ve scheduled our community second hand store pick-up to arrive soon, so that we...

    Politically correct times have silenced the bells of Christmas in the latest attack on Salvation Army bell-ringers. A presence in Small Town America for the last century, Salvation Army bell-ringers are as much as part of the Christmas scene as holly and mistletoe. Even the busiest holiday shoppers, burdened down with parcels and in a hurry to get home, don’t have the heart to pass by the lonely Salvation Army bell-ringer. Braving winter cold and standing outside for hours, bell-ringers send shoppers plumbing through pockets and purses for a few coins. Politically correct times have the assassination of the Christmas...

    It’s a curious thing. Mel Gibson’s film, The Passion of the Christ, broke box office records this year, but as we move closer to Christmas, the date designated as the birth of Jesus, one can hardly look anywhere without reading or hearing about a politically correct retreat from the simple fact that it was, it is, and it will always be a religious holiday. Indeed, the word “holiday” is a retraction of “holy day.” For 61 years I lived in a lovely northern New Jersey suburb that was so picture-perfect a Meryl Streep movie was once filmed there. It is...
