Ran into a few acquiantances at the local crossroads store and stopped to shoot the bull a bit. There's one guy who despite all the advances of modern history, technology, medicine and science has some of the most prejudiced views I have ever heard an idiot speak. Other than that he's a very likeable character. For instance, he will stop and help anyone broke down along the road. An hour later, he'll be bragging about how he fulfilled his duty to help the poor (insert derrogatory ethnic name)who was too stupid to change a flat tire, etc. He was on some bent about how the Jews run everything, all the local corporations etc. After he was done and waiting for a response, he started humming "White Christmas" along with the Muzak in the store. I looked him straight in the eye and said yep ya must be right. They've even taken over Christmas. Heck that song yer hummin' was written by Irving Berlin, and he was Jewish.

I'm not defending this feller by no means,but as a country I wish we could get over this PC crap.If a person tells something that happened to or about a particular nationality that was funny or stupid or great,they should be able to tell that without someone getting their little PC dander up.If a black person that was strung out on drugs,stole a car,robbed a bank,and drove thru the sherriff's office on national TV,it should be reported as that.Just as it should be if it was a person from Iraq,Germany or the little log house down the road.Tell the facts,pure and simple.

Yep, we have our own up here, he's always ready to help anyone and then badmouth everyone. The whole time he hasn't got a clue about anything!
I wouldn't have a problem if he disliked someone for a particular reason, but with him it's just something he taught himself, and he learned well.
Someday I'm gonna have to tell him that the Dr. that we both go to is a fine gentleman of the Jewish faith,, good lord it will rock his world!

Ego is evidence of a "Little" Man.
Bigotry is evidence of a "fearful man"

Just thought you would want to know this, Les.

That is right spelling is very important in the lawyering business,just as good grammar is important so one can properly pass his thought on to others.

Roger that, Sid. I spell because I care. It's sort of like keeping my guitar in tune. Platitudes aside, it's so much more pleasant for those who are listening.

Right on, Ron....some of these so called "literates" have never taken the time to listen to themselves, or others, speak in every day text, but have the time to chastize others for their efforts at the not so exact english tongue. What is todays "proper" use of said language will be tomorrows "latin" ifn ya all wants to hear it like 'tis, jes talk inta a tape recorder thingy fer spell when yer at the local watern' hole....ya'all have a gooder, R.E.L.
