Hello: As I read the messages here, one thing recurring theme I see is the death of common sense, and the rise of political correctness in the USA.
Folks here still arenīt afraid to call it like they see it, while still having respect for whatever they are calling. For example, folks here think I am Mexican even though I am blond with green eyes, until they hear me speak Spanish. There are many folks in this region that are natural blonde, with green or blue eyes. So, they yell to me īGueroī, which means white boy, more or less. These folks arenīt hamstrung by PC, and I believe their lives are better for it.
In this rural region, respect for oneself and ones family are of paramount concern. When I do have a chance to watch Direct TV, my wife and I are appalled by what we see, especially the way women act on TV or the movies. What are they thinking, have they lost all decency? I guess I have been out of the USA too long. I love the USA, and it is still the best thing going, but we have a long way to go to get back on track with our base morals, no matter what your religious beliefs are. OK, Iīll step off the soapbox now. Sleepy
