I was watching the Christmas special of Blue Collar TV with Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engval, and there was a skit put on by Larry the Cable Guy where he does what's called a Pollically Corrected up Tale. He did 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. I can't remember how it was PC'd, but it was funny how he said it. Even though it was done tongue in cheek, there was a message there that I liked. This country is getting to uptight not to offend anyone, that we are getting stupid with what we can and cannot say. What happened to the first ammendment. Now I'm not a bigot or racist and agree with what you can't say with those issues, but when it comes to Christmas, Jesus and what not, what the @#%! is going on here?!?! (I'll get off my soapbox now)
MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!!!
I too saw that episode it WAS funny. But your right, it made me think,
how stupid to have such a controversy over something as harmless as saying Merry Christmas... Besides, it really dosen't matter how politically correct you are, SOMEONE somewhere will always be offended by anything, and everything!
No I hadn't heard that yet, I believe it ... people are so unrealistic anymore...
Maybe he should just stop using our currency, and switch to checks, and debit/credit cards, if he has such a problem.
In this day of direct deposit I think anybody with a checking acount (which are usually free for the basic account), could live with out cash.
Seriously, I rarely use cash except for fast food drive thru's and the occasional yard sale.
I guess having an entire country's currency change, would be easier than just not using it anymore...?
I guess not using cash anymore would take some creative thinking...
Perhaps your kids would accept pre-loaded Visa cards? You could load them on-line and never have to touch cash again... maybe you could get a toll bridge pass or something, on-line...never use change again??
But I have no thoughts on avoiding using cash at things like school events, carnivals, pageants, bake sales, and girl scout cookies... oh yeah, and yard sales...
No matter what anyone says, cash is still king... at least for now it is. It's my understanding that they've been trying something in parts of Europe and Asia that links your phone to your credit card or bank account, and people could transfer funds from person to person by linking phones. Sounds like another opportunity for fraud to me, but it's not like they're at a loss for scams now.
