Hillary should just STFU already.

She's definitely not doing herself any favors.

A question for liberals (re: political correctness)

Who is it that controls the master list of unacceptable terms and phrases, and what is the process for updating and amending the list?

Did POC hold a committee meeting or something to determine that now they find the term AA to be offensive (after years earlier deciding that the term "black" was offensive, etc. etc. etc.)?

Did Asians engage in street protests and burn cop cars to stop people from calling them and their food Oriental?

Did the Fight Attendants Union issue a memo that they would henceforth not be referred to as Stewardesses?

Did Secretaries get tired of the bad reputation they received from sleeping with their bosses and by necessity change their title to Executive Assistants?

Granted, there are a ton of pejoratives that were created for the sole purpose of demeaning specific groups of people, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about common, harmless idioms and titles that are completely innocuous being constantly redefined and blacklisted, most often by unaffected groups of liberals? In other words, how does waitress or secretary or African American become an offensive term when they were more or less created by the same people who now don't want to be referred to as such?

It's all so confusing.

The only really good thing I could see about a Trump presidency

is that liberals would move to Canada en masse. It would be an addition by subtraction kind of thing. A win-win for all parties involved, so to speak.

Are whites who stand when people of color are taking a knee showing a lack of allyship?

Are whites who stand when people of color are taking a knee showing a lack of allyship?

Is it a microaggression, or worse, overt racism? What should poc think of poc who choose not to kneel? There are all kinds of interesting subtexts here waiting to be explored.

Man tries to sell wife on Ebay.

“For sale one wife,” he wrote. “Not new has been used but still got some good miles left in her.”

“Reason for selling … I’ve had my fill and feel like there HAS to someone out there that is more deserving of her me (oh dear god please let there be.)”

Going on to list Leandra’s body work and paint work as still in decent condition, he went on to say she had some skills in the kitchen, before listing her bad points:

“Often makes this noise that cannot be silenced unless you order brand new shiny parts of metal,” he quipped.

I would have taken the $100,000 bid in a heartbeat.
