We have all heard about PC going mad and people moaning about it because of words changing or words becoming offensive all of a sudden or things being banned or humor and the time the Disney company cut out McLeach’s version of Home on the Range in Rescuers Down Under (sorry couldn’t find that on youtube again) or the time some teacher cut out the word gay in deck the Halls, and the greetings Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. Now Starbucks has made a Christmas cup they are serving to guests and it has caused an uproar. I never understood the fuss about it until I read this. Apparently what is so offensive about it is they didn’t use the words Merry Christmas and they had left it all blank. So because they didn’t want to offend anyone with Merry Christmas, they left it all blank and people are still offended by the lack of the season greeting. Go figure.
It’s politically incorrect to be politically correct.Friday, November 13th, 2015
