In the sick dangerous world of education nowadays, among other zero tolerance affronts, a kid was kicked out for playing with a finger gun. You might remember, though there were toy guns aplenty once, we would improvise with sticks and yes our fingers, usually extended forefinger and thumb up. Depending on the 'design' (lol) the finer would bend or the thumb would fall along with shouts of 'bang, bang'.
Zero tolerance is lack of common sense of course. It helps condition the masses for encroaching collectivism.
This tidbit was on my mind when someone on Facebook mentioned the 'n' word and someone sanctioned for using it. I didn't bother to find out the details and I probably should. But the whole point to me is simple. A lot of people do a lot of things behind closed doors. For weal or woe, they use a lot of words not spoken in public conversations. They may gesticulate as well. Where does pc policing end?
We may in the privacy of our homes say and do things we would never do or state outside. Chalk it up to blowing off steam.
I hope in public places, such as this blog, we may all criticize those threatening our Republic. We must be responsible and I further hope we are specific and offer solutions that are appropriate.
***** is a poopyhead just doesn't cut it. But to call someone traitor must be backed up with facts. I think most folks at least with whom I associate, do an excellent job in that regard.
Facts stick out like a sore thumb. We call to the carpet those who should rightfully be brought to book. And as the list is almost endless, I'll leave you to fill it in lol.
Lord help my GreatGrandmother if she were still here. She used to say certain people weren't worth the powder to blow themselves up. She'd probably get the Secret Service visiting her house on Main Street.
